Simonize My Cleaning Secret Review

My oven was a mess, but I can’t stand the fumes from traditional oven cleaners.  When I saw the commercial for Simonize My Cleaning Secret, I had to give it a try.  When Walmart got it in at their “as seen on TV” section, I grabbed up a package.

The commercial said that it cleans ovens with out fumes.  This is my review.

I couldn’t wait to try this product out.  I trusted the name, Simonize, since we’ve used their car cleaning products in the past.

Like I said, my oven was a mess.  (I’ve got to learn to start using a lid, or at least some tin foil)  This is what the door of the oven looked like:

I got the supplies together.  The Simonize My Cleaning Secret, a two sided sponge & some water.

I was a little leery when I opened the tub.  The powder is very fine & created a slight dust cloud when I took the lid off.  I followed the package directions, and wet the sponge & dipped it into the powder.

I ended up using the rough side of the sponge & started scrubbing that oven door.

After about half an hour of scrubbing, the door to the oven looked wonderful!  I rinsed it & dried it with paper towels.

The door came out so well, that I went on to the disaster that was my oven.

I started to scrub the inside of the oven.  It took a lot of elbow grease.

After about an hour of serious labor, this is how it turned out.

I ran out of steam.  An hour of hard scrubbing & it still needs more cleaning.  The flat surfaces didn’t turn out too bad, but the sides were still a mess.

I just didn’t have any more energy left!  And by this time, my back was starting to give out.

I tried it on my copper bottomed pot & after about 15 minutes of scrubbing, I really didn’t see a big difference.  Then I tried it on the kitchen sink.  I think that Comet does a better job.

Would I buy it again?  No.  I think I’ll put up with the fumes & go back to Easy Off, although I understand they have a fume free line now.

Simonize My Cleaning Secret.  Does it work?  Yes, if you have hours and a lot of elbow grease to spend on what ever you’re trying to clean.
