LA's Totally Awesome All Purpose Cleaner Review

by Violet

Violet has shared her review of LA's Totally Awesome cleaner, and how she was first introduced to this product.

Violet says:

I had a horrible problem with tree sap on the exterior of my car. I had tried every car cleaner available and nothing worked.


I took my car to the car wash and the attendant said I needed to try L.A.'s Totally Awesome cleaner. I had never heard of it but he swore by it.

He sent me across the street to the Family Dollar store where I bought a large bottle for just $1.00. I was skeptical because I had already spent so much money on other cleaners and nothing worked.

I took it back over to the car wash and the attendant helped me and sure enough the sap came right off. Then he told me that it was all he ever used on his car, his boat and around his house.

I went home and tried it for myself on my appliances and couldn't believe how quickly it cleaned off dried food and everyday dirt. I then tried it on my counter tops and from there put it on just about every surface in my house.

Now I use it exclusively to clean my counter tops, toilets, refrigerator, stove tops, showers, car (exterior), and my tile floor.

It really is an awesome product and I've not found a single thing that cleans better. It's also really great because it doesn't have any harsh odors and is safe to use on just about any place that needs cleaning.

I have recommended the product to several of my friends and they have all thanked me for the suggestion. It is so affordable and easy to use and it's my only choice when it comes to cleaning my house or car.

Taylor says:

Thanks Violet for sharing your review of LA's Totally Awesome all purpose cleaner. I think it especially cool that you found a way to remove tree sap with it.

If other people have tips for removing tree sap from various surfaces, I would love to hear them too! You can share your sap stain removal tips here, or read other tips and tricks already submitted.

In addition, this product is advertised to be safe for lots of surfaces, and to be used as both a cleaner and stain remover, including for clothing.

I would love to hear from even more people who have used this product, on any variety of surfaces and fabrics, to share how it has worked for them, good or bad. You can share your general purpose cleaner review here, for this or any other product, sharing how you use it in your home, and why you like (or dislike) it.

In addition, as a side note, I have some links above for ways to purchase this product on Amazon. However, I would suggest to people that if they can find it at their local dollar stores, where this product is mainly found in stores, I would definitely buy it there instead. The reason is that at dollar stores this product is a MUCH better deal, especially with shipping, etc.

Can You Use Totally Awesome To Wash Rugs?

SR101 Reader Asked:

Can you use this product to wash rugs in a washer?

Taylor's Answer:

I did some research about this product on the manufacturer's website, and my answer is yes, with a caveat.

The product is designed both for use to cleaning surfaces in your home as well as to be used in the laundry.

The website claims the product is safe to be used for stain removal and as a presoak for fabrics.

To the extent that yes, most fabrics can be washed with this product, yes you can wash rugs with it too.

The thing is, you've got to be careful in general, no matter what product you use, when you wash rugs in the washing machine.

Some of them are quite sturdy and also colorfast and will do just fine. Others are quite flimsy and will basically disintegrate with a heavy washing, or will bleed dye everywhere.

Further, it depends what fibers your rug is made from. If it is wool, for example, you need to be much more careful in what you use to wash it than if it's a cheap cotton blend. For delicate fibers I suggest using a delicate wash products.

I hope this answer has helped you! I've answered this question as part of the laundry questions section of the site. Pop on over and see what else I've answered, or ask me your own question.

Plus, if anyone else has suggestions for products you like to use for washing rugs I would love to hear them. You can share your tips here and I'll add them to the site!

Marnie shared the following quick comment on the site's Facebook page when we were discussing the removal of lipstick stains, since another reader had shared how she removed lipstick stains with this product, along with ammonia.

Marnie then chimed into the conversation and shared the following:

It takes out anything oil based, even diesel fuel!

It works great and the first time.

Great results with Awesome
by: Melissa

The Dollar Tree has a product called "Awesome" it is the base of a lot of different cleaners and it is just that AWESOME. My son spilled juice all down the front of a brand new shirt and I thought it was a goner. My friend gave me a bottle of Awesome and I soaked it for 48 hours. The stain was gone, the color was in a little pool at the bottom of the bowl. I've used it ever since with great results.

Good wasp spray
by: Anonymous

I was looking for something to spray some wasps with. I found my awesome and sprayed them with it. They dropped dead shortly after I sprayed them.

Recent change
by: Anonymous

I am a faithful user of Awesome,best all purpose cleaner ever, great on laundry. I use it for my grandson's baseball uniform. He's got the whitest uniform they ask how I get it so clean. I of course tell them Awesome. It removes grass stains and the red clay from the field. However, I noticed recently it's not the same. I don't choke with the spray anymore and it's not cleaning as well. I don't mind the choking. I'd rather have the old Awesome back, I can handle the choking it's worth it. Please bring back the original Awesome.

Great for car interior
by: Jamie

Great product for car interior. It took out 90% of the stains in my car. The only thing is it did leave marks on the car interior ceiling as I only spot treated stains. If I would have saturated the entire hung then this wouldn't have happened. Also, I would suggest wearing gloves as it dried out my hands pretty bad.

Gets blood out
by: Anonymous

I used it to get blood off my mattress. Then I had a white shirt with barbecue sauce. It all came out. I love this.

5 stars
by: Sharon

Fabulous. Used it in my carpet steam cleaner and it worked much better than any carpet cleaner used to date. My carpet was a mess, despite constant cleaning. It now looks almost brand new. I totally lucked out because I was out of carpet shampoo and I just bought this product in the 64 oz size and it said it was safe on carpets, so I gave it a try. ***** (5) stars and I am a tough, tough critic.

Great product
by: Anonymous

I have tried all kinds of cleaners both homemade and commercial. This cleaner works wonders! I have a black shower and it cleaned it to a shine.

Helped after house fire
by: Anonymous

Hi to everyone that are grateful for the things that they have and work so hard to get but nature can bring on some hard situations like a house fire. A month ago a friend of mine house's burned down. Everything had smoke damage and soot but a lot was saved and restored because of the totally awesome cleaner. The company don't know what they really have in that little yellow bottle but it can really save your precious memories and money for $1.00 a bottle at your local dollar store. Try it and you will be amazed and everything in your home will be awesome.

works great but be careful with use around dogs
by: Linda B

I spot cleaned dozens of dog stains that were in my carpets and went behind with dry clean rag afterward. My male husky may not make it. He either ingested some thru his pads and paws and then licked himself of he licked where I had used on the carpet, It has been touch and go. I don't care about the money at vet's-I just want him to get healthy again, at any cost. That is how much I love this boy. His mouth, throat and esophagus are full of ulcerations and very painful for him to swallow. The only thing I can get him to eat is peanut butter for days now. But his first symptom was the white of both his blue eyes turned red about 3 days after I did the cleaning and AWESOME CLEANER being the cause never entered my mind. Vet game me eye drops but then all the other things started happening so we went back for blood work and a fluid IV. If you are a praying person, please say a prayer for my beautiful blue eyed red coated rescued dog. Thank you and just please everyone be careful.

Carpet stain in truck

It wouldn't take the red stains in my truck off the carpet. If it was more than a dollar, I'd be pissed.
