Mr Muscle has asked us to find 400 MNers to test out their new Touch-Up Cleaner.

Here's what Mr Muscle say about their new product: "Mr Muscle® Touch-Up Cleaner offers a fast and convenient solution to kill 99.99% of bacteria and to clean the most frequently used surfaces in the home. The inventive new design makes it easy to clean surfaces and kill bacteria; simply push down on the pump to apply the formula onto a cleaning material such as a paper towel, cleaning cloth or sponge. Then, just wipe the surface clean."

This product test is open to all UK Mumsnetters.

Those who are selected will be sent one following Mr Muscle Touch-Up Cleaners:

- Mr Muscle ® Touch-Up Cleaner Bathroom & Toilet in an Ocean Shore fragrance
- Mr Muscle® Touch-Up Cleaner Kitchen in a Citrus fragrance

You'll then need to try the product out for a week or so and add your feedback to a thread on Mumsnet. Testing will take place between 19th August and 6th September, so please only sign up if you're available to take part during this time.

All selected testers who add their feedback to thread will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will receive a £250 John Lewis voucher.

If you're interested in taking part, please sign up here.

Thanks and good luck,

manfalou Mon 05-Aug-13 11:06:08

hope i get to trial this... I've used some totally sh!t kitchen cleaners just lately, some that i truly believe are bad for my childs health as he coughs every time i used the asda own brand antibac spray!. Hopefully this will come up trumps.

GetStuffezd Mon 05-Aug-13 11:15:54

Hope it's not just mummies, MummyB - I would like to get in on this one too!

HoneyDragon Wed 14-Aug-13 18:41:47

I've been picked!

Which is particularly surprising as in the box asking why you want to try this product, I put, "because it sounds rude" grin

Tigerbomb Wed 14-Aug-13 19:35:00

I've been picked too ... wa hay

Honeydragon I put something similar down and then deleted it grin

HoneyDragon Wed 14-Aug-13 19:43:01


icecreamcrackers Wed 14-Aug-13 20:08:16

Dillydollydaydream Wed 14-Aug-13 23:56:45

cocolepew Thu 15-Aug-13 00:27:56

Dillydolly just don't mix them up shock

Dillydollydaydream Thu 15-Aug-13 09:22:44

grin the Mr Muscle might work a treat on stretch marks?

Duplogiraffe Thu 15-Aug-13 11:36:38

Guessing I haven't been picked as no email sad

dahville Thu 15-Aug-13 12:15:21

Bummer, no e-mail envy

It's the JL voucher I wanted to win in any case!

Thank you MN and Mr Muscle. No email here but the postman has just delivered it so looks like I was chosen after all!

Mine has arrived too different. Just have to clean now. grin

derektheladyhamster Sat 17-Aug-13 12:17:20

No email, but it arrived today. grin I have cleaned the bathroom grin

Any tips derek? Is a special cloth required? I only have sponges.

MissElodie Sat 17-Aug-13 12:35:28

Oooh Mr Postie just delivered some Mr Muscle!

I never got an email either but must have been chosen to! MNHQ please could you resend or could someone copy and paste their email so I know what I need to do....other than get cleaning of course!

MissElodie Sat 17-Aug-13 12:36:13

oops spelling - I mean *too

sayithowitis Sat 17-Aug-13 13:00:42

Well, I've had the email <punches air at finally being selected for something> but still waiting for royal mail to get their act together and deliver it.

derektheladyhamster Sat 17-Aug-13 13:28:53

It's not actually mean for 'proper' cleaning. It's for spot cleaning. I did some spot cleaning around the toilet, using toilet roll, which it says you can use. But strangely enough the toilet roll disintegrated. But I could dispose of it down the loo, which was good.

Not sure it's any better than anti bac wipes for spot cleaning. I had wanted to use it with loo roll, but I think I shall have to experiment to find the right knack.

PenguinBear Sat 17-Aug-13 13:46:43

I hadn't seen the email as it was in my junk box but the cleaner arrived in the post today and I have just found the email. Never been chosen before, so excited! grin

I have the bathroom one. i need to pick a spot. grin

ElizaCBennett Sat 17-Aug-13 13:53:02

Just checked my junk box and I have been chosen too! Never been chosen before. Who would have thought we would be so pleased to be asked to do some cleaning!

cocolepew Sat 17-Aug-13 14:08:43

I just like free stuff.

HelenIsOffSkite Sat 17-Aug-13 16:42:54

I didn't get an e-mail so it was a surprise when a bottle of Mr Muscle arrived in the post this morning.

Will get testing...

Coconutty Sat 17-Aug-13 16:44:31

I didn't get an email but received one in the post today. Have tried it already, it's great.

florencebabyjo Sat 17-Aug-13 19:07:29

Hi, I didn't get an email either but got mine today! That was a nice surprise! Love the bottle design and it almost looks like liquid soap so must keep it right out of reach! Thanks a lot x

michelleblane Sat 17-Aug-13 19:28:28

I got bathroom one today, thanks. Love the container. Will try properly tomorrow.

Dillydollydaydream Sat 17-Aug-13 21:39:14

Mines not here yet. Hopefully Monday.

icecreamcrackers Sat 17-Aug-13 22:09:01

Not got mine yet either, hope it comes soon

Blatherskite Sun 18-Aug-13 08:07:25

I've checked and double checked all e-mail folders and I definitley didn't get an email. Do I need to know anything other than "clean stuff with it"?

sayithowitis Sun 18-Aug-13 10:17:05

Blathers - I have C+P'd the e-mail I received. I assume there will be some sort of instructions on the packaging. Hoping mine arrives on Monday!

Blatherskite Sun 18-Aug-13 13:06:28

Thank you sayithowitis

Duplogiraffe Mon 19-Aug-13 08:26:23

I am full of probably false hope I will still get one despite having had no email now

Is there a feedback thread yet?

Fillybuster Mon 19-Aug-13 13:15:36

I received the email but still no Mr Muscle....sad

Anyone else not received theirs yet? or is it just me? sad

cocolepew Mon 19-Aug-13 17:49:51

I haven't got anything either mummyB

Happiestinwellybobs Mon 19-Aug-13 17:59:32

Me neither - come on postie!!

It came in a big white jiffy bag, postie put it in my porch. Have you checked round the front door, behind pots etc?

Coconutty Mon 19-Aug-13 19:22:39

I didn't get an email, not even in my junk but did receive the product on Saturday in a big white jiffy bag and then had an email today about the feedback thread.

Coconutty Mon 19-Aug-13 19:25:28

Just had a thought, has everyone else got the bathroom cleaner? Maybe the kitchen one hasn't been sent yet?

I haven't received mine yet either.

Dillydollydaydream Tue 20-Aug-13 05:16:03

Nor me. I have 2 emails though.

sad still haven't got mine!!! postie has been and done his thing today but didn't bring me my Mr. Muscle sad sad

sayithowitis Tue 20-Aug-13 09:59:16

Still nothing here. Hope it's as Coconutty suggests and it's just that kitchen stuff hasn't been sent yet.

WheresMyCow Tue 20-Aug-13 10:00:42

I've received both emails and no Mr Muscle either sad

Well, the postie has done his rounds again this morning and still hasn't brought mine sad sad

Blatherskite Thu 22-Aug-13 10:29:17

Is there a feedback thread yet?

Mine still hasn't come sad

Mine neither. Postie just been and nothing.

Tigerbomb Thu 22-Aug-13 11:19:47

Mine hasn't come either

mummylin Thu 22-Aug-13 11:42:05

None here either and I too have had both emails

I def received both emails to say I'd got the trial. Wonder why some of us are waiting??. Maybe cos they were after 400 people to trial, our names slipped through the net when it came to dispatching them??? hope not, was so excited to hear I'd got it.

Both emails here too. I was just looking at it longingly in Sainsburys smile

mummylin Thu 22-Aug-13 13:40:14

Someone has suggested on the other thread that so far all the people who have recieved theirs has been bathroom cleaner so maybe all us late ones will be getting the kitchen cleaner.

I'm still waiting too, am relieved to see others are and its not just me waiting as my postie is very unreliable and I was about to start giving him evils!

AngelieMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 22-Aug-13 15:48:16

Hi everyone, sorry to those of you who are still waiting - the products are still being sent out so hopefully they should arrive soon smile For those of you who may have missed my email, the feedback thread is here

Happiestinwellybobs Thu 22-Aug-13 16:55:49

Thank you - hoping it comes for the weekend, so I DH can do some cleaning smile

Dillydollydaydream Thu 22-Aug-13 17:54:04

Ah hopefully it arrives soon smile

smokinaces Fri 23-Aug-13 10:32:24

Well I received no emails at all, so was a bit of a surprise to get a bottle of mr muscle touch up cleaner for my bathroom today from my postie!!

Shall get cracking and giving feedback.

Wonder what other emails I've missed??!!!

I got my bathroom cleaner today too. I didn't have an email either.

Does this mean I have to actually clean the bathroom now?

crazykat Fri 23-Aug-13 23:42:29

I got an e-mail today so hopefully it'll be here next week. Looking forward to trying it and will love it if it gets the bath clean after DH has been in after work (very mucky job).

mummylin Sun 25-Aug-13 00:01:52

MNHQ how can it be right that some of us haven't even received our sample so haven't been able to leave feedback, And a winner has already been chosen ???

mummylin Sun 25-Aug-13 00:26:11

Oh I Apologise, I see its for filling in the survey

Well I still haven't got mine and its now the 26th!! sad

chocolatemartini Mon 26-Aug-13 13:31:45

I used mine (bathroom cleaner) today. Cleaned the toilet seat, the bin, then decided to use it for the kitchen bin too. Didn't try it on taps or sink, as I wouldn't normally use antibacterial stuff there, it's more lime scale removal needed than antibac for taps. I don't believe in over sanitising everything... So, for what I used it for, it worked very well. I might buy again, though I usually use dettol spray for disinfecting. Would prob get whichever was cheaper.

Huffpot Mon 26-Aug-13 16:47:50

Mine still hasn't arrived yet either Mummyb sad

Dillydollydaydream Mon 26-Aug-13 20:47:40

Hmm nor me!

Was hoping the postie was gonna deliver my Mr muscle today but still haven't received it. Seriously doubting I'm gonna actually get it now sad

Dillydollydaydream Tue 27-Aug-13 11:34:42

Same here. Thought it was just me! 😖

mummylin Tue 27-Aug-13 12:30:36

Mine has not come either

BornToFolk Tue 27-Aug-13 19:33:00

Mine's not come either. I have been away and thought it would arrive then but no sign and the neighbours have not had it either...

Well its now the 28th and STLL haven't got my product!, I got the email to say I'd got the trial absolutely ages ago so Ive pretty much come to the conclusion that there's been some sort of mix up somewhere along the line and I'm not going to get it now. Got to be said, I am disappointed sad

ImATotJeSuisUneTot Wed 28-Aug-13 10:28:39

This has just arrived in the post.

I'd had no email to say I was part of the trial.

mummylin Wed 28-Aug-13 15:44:05

Mine arrived this morning, kitchen cleaner

skyeskyeskye Wed 28-Aug-13 20:01:52

mine has just arrived this morning

HepsibarCrinkletoes Thu 29-Aug-13 10:20:45

Another who received no email, but my product has just arrived in the post, so thank you. Kitchen Touch Up Cleaner for us. Smells nice. Will find feedback thread.

Still not got mine yet....I guess time will tell sad

Dillydollydaydream Thu 29-Aug-13 16:23:17

Finally arrived today just as I was giving up hope!
I've got the kitchen one. Smells really nice smile

Happiestinwellybobs Thu 29-Aug-13 20:21:02

Arrived today - well half of it did. The rest had leaked everywhere. My postie smelt lovely, if a bit damp grin

Still no sign of mine sad
