Melaleuca EcoSense Tub & Tile Cleaner Review

I got these comments about Melaleuca EcoSense Tub & Tile Cleaner on Stain Removal 101's Facebook page, when we were discussing another Melaleuca product.

These ladies graciously allowed me to share their comments here on the site to learn more about this cleaning product too.

Jeany says:

I love the tub & tile cleaner. We have tried everything since we moved in here seven years ago to get our shower stall clean. Got this product and our shower stall look like brand new. And I can breathe while I clean.

Crystal responded:

OMG Tub & tile is the bomb!! When we bought our home I thought our shower was beige, but after spraying it down with Tub & Tile, I found out it was white!!

Taylor says:

Thanks to both ladies for sharing their quick reviews of Melaleuca EcoSense Tub & Tile cleaner, and for being such active Facebook Fans of Stain Removal 101!

This discussion started on the Facebook wall when I posted this review from another reader about Diamond Brite dishwasher detergent, another product from Melaleuca's EcoSense brand.

Is This Tub & Tile Cleaner Safe For Use On Fiberglass?

by SR101 Reader

Fiberglass sink

An SR101 reader asked me this cleaning question about Melaleuca's tub and tile cleaner.

SR101 Reader asks:

I want to know if the Tub and Tile cleaner is safe on fiberglass tubs?

Taylor says:

I have not personally used this product, but did some additional research on it to answer your question.

The cleaner is advertised to have the active ingredient of citric acid. Citric acid is often used to clean bathroom tile since it is good at cutting soap scum, for example.

Further, the product contains neither chlorine bleach nor abrasives.

Abrasives are one of the main things you should avoid in cleaners to be used on fiberglass.

Although I did not see any specific statement from the company suggesting it was safe for fiberglass, the fact that the advertised ingredients within in it don't suggest a problem makes me believe it would be safe.

However, as with any new cleaner it is always best to test on an inconspicuous area before using everywhere to make sure it does not harm the surface of your bathtub or shower.

I also noted when researching the EcoSense tub and tile cleaner that it is concentrated. Therefore, before using it please follow product instructions for dilution to the correct concentration.

Has anyone else used this, or another Melalueca EcoSense cleaning product? If so, please share your eco-friendly cleaning products review here telling me how it worked for you, good or bad.

Further, you can check out these tips for how to clean fiberglass here, or share some of your own.

Finally, I answered this question as part of the section on the site where readers can ask me for cleaning help. You can check out the section for yourself, to see what else I've answered, or ask your own question.

***Update: See below for a reader, Ken, who complained that this product caused problems with his porcelain tub and shower. Based on this information I would suggest caution before using this product, especially if you don't dilute it properly.***End Update

This Product Ate Away At My Porcelain Tub

by Ken
(Emmaus, PA)

Ken shared his experience with this product, and was not happy about it.

Ken says:

This stuff is bad.

They don't tell you not to use it on fiberglass or porcelain because they want you to find out for yourself that it will eat it away.

I used it on my shower for months before I noticed it was eating my porcelain tub away.

Try to do the right thing by going green and still get messed over by money hungry companies like this one.

Taylor says:

Sorry to hear about your experience Ken.

As I said in my answer above I have never personally used this product, and am frankly surprised this has happened to you because porcelain is such a strong substance. However, in its concentrated form it is quite potent is my understanding.

I would like to hear from others to share if they've experienced a similar problem with this product. You can share your experiences with me here for this or any bathroom cleaner.
