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.
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.
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!!
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.
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
Ken shared his experience with this product, and was not happy about it.
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.
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.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
