Like many others, I have used Soft Scrub with Bleach for years. My primary bottle is located under the kitchen sink - it's great for getting rid of burnt on stains on the stove top and burners. You do have to do some scrubbing on stubborn spots, but the mild abrasive in Soft Scrub does most of the work for you.

I've also used this in the bathroom to get rid of dried toothpaste around the sink and counter, and cut through soap scum on all my faucets. It seems to help prevent mold and mildew from growing in the tile grout in the shower, and erases stains in the grout on my kitchen backsplash as well as the tile entryway. I keep a bottle in the mud room just to keep the entryway clean during the winter and early spring, as the dogs and I can track in quite a bit of mud and snow.

The only negative is the bleach smell, but at least I know that I'm disinfecting at the same time! I also make sure that I rinse the tile floors with clean water to make sure that the dogs don't get any on their paws.

Bathroom cleaners are something that frustrate me. If they work well, they smell awful or make me have difficulty breathing. If they don't smell bad, they don't clean well. I have a lot of different cleaners collected in my closet and most of them are not as nice as I would like them to be.

One of these cleanser is Soft Scrub with Bleach. I have used Soft Scrub on and off over the years and the addition of bleach to the cleaner seemed like a good idea when I bought it, but in the end I really didn't like it.

Performance
The idea of this cleaner is that you squeeze the slightly abrasive cleaner onto a sink, bathtub, counter, or grout in shower, and then using a sponge or brush, you rub the cleaner into the surface. The cleaner is not overly abrasive and won't leave scratches on the surface.

I am not that crazy about the performance of this cleanser. When squeezing out the cleaner, sometimes just liquid comes out before the actual creamy cleanser comes out. The cleaning performance is not always consistent and it is frustrating. I find that it does not do a great job on hard water or mineral stains.

I tend to prefer Bar Keeper's Friend instead, as I feel it leaves the surfaces cleaner and newer looking.

Scent
I thought perhaps I could use this cleaner, but the bleach scent bothered my lungs. I didn't like using it in my bathroom or kitchen as the scent was just strong enough to bother me although it was not as bad as some cleaners.

Soft Scrub works well

By 

from Anchorage, AK

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach works well in our home. We usually have a least one bottle of this in our home. It works well on sinks, tubs and toilets. I also find that it works will on grout in the shower. We have been using this product for many years and have found it to be useful for many cleaning tasks. Soft scrub with bleach works well on areas that are discolored or have stubborn stains. I usually apply some to the troubled areas and let it soak for awhile before I rinse and repeat the cleaning process until the desired results are achieved. It's very important to make sure the soft scrub is rinsed off completely due to the fact that it contains bleach. This can be harmful to your skin if you are using it in a soaking tub etc. I find that it can be removed with a double rinse and a wipe down with a damp cloth. I would recommend soft scrub cleanser to my friends and family.

I've used this in my bathroom and my kitchen and love it.

By 

from West Virginia

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

This is one of the products from Soft Scrub that I have loved best. The cleaner had bleach in it wihich for me usually means a more clean, sanitary surface. I like that the soft scrub cleaner has abrasive little particles in it because it helps me scrub everything from the bathroom to the kitchen to even the laundry room. The cleaners added bleaching power worked great for me because I like to be sure my kitchen is safe and free of harmful germs that could make me and my family sick.

I like to use this on my kitchen table because it's older and I'm not overly concerend with damaging the wood. The grain gets scrubbed out thoroughly and I know it's being sanitized. I also like to use this on my kitchen sink and counter tops because it helps me clean up mold, mildew, and soap scum like a charm.

It work great in the bathroom. I have even used this on the toilet bowl. I've applied it around the rim and because it's thicker, it actually stays where I put it so I can use my wand to scrub inside the bowl. The scrubbing power helps remove hard water from the bowl. It's a great, versatile cleaner.

Performance
This cleaner worked great on the kitchen sink, the countertops, the tile and grout, my kitchen table, my bathroom sinks, my shower, and even in the toilet bowl. It's very versatile and it has the added sanitizing and cleaning power of bleach so it scours and kills germs while I used it.

Scent
Because it has bleach in it, the smell is a little bit stronger than the original formula. It isn't bad but it's a little strong to clean with unless you have a fan or ventiliation going. I recommend cleaning with a mask no matter what cleaner or chemical is being used.

Soft Scrub my favorite cleaner

By 

from Peoria, AZ

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

I've bought lots of other tub/tile cleaners over the years and then wonder why, Soft Scrub is a product that works extremely well, is easy to use, it does not make unrealistic claims and the smell is minimal. Best of all it is low priced. You really can't ask for more than that in a cleaning product.

Performance
I use Soft Scrub with bleach to clean my sinks, bathtubs and toilets, and I have even found that this product works great on walls where a black mark seem to just appear. The price is a lot more reasonable than most of the other advertised products that are supposed to do wonders. Soft Scrub is just what it says, soft scrubbing and does not scratch the porcelain sinks or tubs. It always get the job done You do not have a spray can to mess up the environment and you have control of how much you are using so there is no waste.

Scent
The bleach is not prevalent in this product and I did not find that it had any adverse effects on my breathing.

Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach

By 

from Chesapeake, VA

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

This product works really well in removing stains from my kitchen and bathroom counters, sinks, and toilets. It also works well in removing fabric stains (like a bleach pen, but much cheaper) - on white clothes only or fabric that can handle bleach. I recommend getting the fabric wet before putting soft scrub on it. The texture is similar to a paste of baking soda, a slight grittiness but nothing that's ever scratched or marred my counter tops. It's the best thing I've found for removing coffee and tea stains, too. It does smell like bleach, but much less astringent than pure bleach, and no eye-watering smell. The only two negative points I have is that the bleach separates from the paste and rises to the top, so sometimes it's almost pure bleach there. The paste at the bottom is thick and dry, and shaking it back together doesn't always result in a uniform consistency. The other is that it takes more than one time to remove the paste, maybe because of the grit, or because of the thickness of the paste, but there is now a version of this product that doesn't have to be rinsed.

Performance
Recommended for coffee and tea stains.

Scent
Better than bleach, but still not like flowers!

Soft Scrub with Bleach works great on stains

By 

from Pennsylvania

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

I love Soft Scrub products and Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach is no exception. This is such a great cleaner that can be used to clean many things around the home. This works wonderful at cleaning the bathroom but I use it in the kitchen a lot also. My mom always used to use Soft Scrub and I continued the tradition. It is affordable and widely available.

Performance
Soft Scrub with Bleach works so well at removing tough stains. It does a wonderful job on most surfaces! Just be sure to test a small area if using on a surface for the first time. The product does contain bleach so be sure it does not take the color out of what you are cleaning. This does an excellent job of cleaning, deodorizing and sanitizing the toilets, tubs, and sinks in my bathrooms. It takes stains off porcelain without scratching the surface. It also does a great job of taking off mold, mildew and soap scum in the tub or shower. This is a very versatile product that has many uses.

Scent
I mostly just smell bleach with a light cleaner scent. Not terrible but not the greatest. I think the benefits of the cleaner far outweigh the not so great smell.

Best product for Fiberglass tubs

By 

from Brewster, NY

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

Soft scrub is the only product I have ever used that thoroughly cleans fiberglass bathtub enclosures. They look like new. Soap scum, gone, rings, gone, grit, gone.
This is a versatile product and I am only focusing on one thing but that is because the other uses for Soft Scrub can be accomplished with many other products. However, on tube enclosures, Ajax and other cleaning powders scratch, Soft Scrub does not. And nothing else adequately cleans. On tile and counters and other uses for Soft Scrub, it is good but so are other products.
The consistency of Soft Scrub is also a plus. For vertical surfaces, it is thick and does not immediately drip down.
On a sponge for my outdoor vinyl furniture it is also wonderful. Quick and complete, just hose off. Even after winter storage when it is filthy.
Soft Scrub is fairly priced if you buy the large bottle and I recommend using the one with bleach but do not let it get on your clothes - the bleach will make white spots on your clothes.

Works on glass top stoves!

By 

from Hendersonville, NC

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

I was buying really expensive cleaner for my glass top stove. One day I ran out and decided to buy some soft scrub and give it a try. It was a huge gamble, because it doesn't say anywhere on the bottle that it is ok to use on glass surfaces and I was afraid that it may be too abrasive. I had a pot of milk that boiled over and made a huge mess so I decided to give it a go and try it out. It worked great! It actually did just as good of a job as the expensive cleaner that I had been buying and it even had the same consistency. I have been buying it ever since to use on my stove top. I also like to use it around my sink where the grout tends to get brown and gunky. It does a wonderful job. It is a wonderful value because it doesn't take very much at all and the bottle lasts quite a long time. It is also not very caustic and does not cause my hands to crack or feel dry. I don't even use rubber gloves when I use it.

Scent
It has a nice fresh scent to it that is not too strong or overwhelming. I really like it.

I Use Soft Scrub with Bleach for All of My Deep Cleaning

By 

from USA

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

I love this product. I seriously use it for all of my deep cleaning from my kitchen to my bathroom. I have formica countertops and whenever I have a stain on them that won't come off like a juice stain or a stain from a newspaper, I pour a little of this Soft Scrub cream on it, leave it for about five minutes, and then it just wipes off. I have also used it on my flat-top stove in my kitchen. Whenever I have a stain or build-up from a pan I use the same process as I mentioned before and it comes right off- without staining or bleaching the stove.

I have also used this in the shower, on hard water stains in the bathroom sink, on toilet rings, and on the stains around the base of the toilet. The most effective situation in which I have used this product has been on the grout in my bathroom. The builders of my house did not seal the grout in the tile, so it gets very dirty- VERY fast- especially in the bathroom. One day I decided to pour a little of this cream on it and see what would happen. I just poured a little bit on and scraped it on all of the surrounding grout. I left it for about 15 minutes, and my grout was seriously a different color. It was amazing!

The only problem I have with this product is how easily the bleach in it stains clothes or burns skin. I have made the mistake many times of using it while wearing nicer clothes or using it and not wearing gloves and I regretted it each time!

Soft Scrub is good for glass cooktops

By 

from Dallas, GA

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

I have tried soft scrub over the years and it does clean but you have to use elbow grease to get things clean. What I mean is, it doesn't work all on it's on, you have to do your part by scrubbing. You have to scrub pretty hard too if you are cleaning a dirty shower or countertop. The thing this cleaner is best at is for cleaning those electric cook tops that have glass over the electric eye. The cleaner is very good on getting the goop loose off of that. It's the only product I could find that would clean the glass cooktop well. Since I no longer have one, I no longer purchase this product. It cleans sinks okay but requires a good bit of scrubbing. I don't like spending my time doing all the work so I quit purchasing this product. At one time, before I knew about Scrubbing bubbles and other cleaners, soft scrub was the only thing I used but now there are cleaners that do more of the work for you and less work for me is what I want. I don't like spending time scrubbing and scrubbing to get the dirt off. If you do, this product is for you.

Excellent product for cleaning items that scratch easily!

By 

from USA

Comments about Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach:

If you have items in your home that scratch easily, Soft Scrub is the product for you. It definitely fits it's name. It cleans as thoroughly as an abrasive but without the fear of scratching those delicate surfaces. Works great on fiberglass to clean sinks, toilets, showers, and so much more.

It's easy on your hands because it isn't abrasive but a nice gel. I find that it removes water stains from my faucets and drain rings with very little scrubbing at all. It works great to remove mold, and mildew from all surfaces, especially plastic items while disinfecting them at the same time. You know how sometimes that dish gets shoved to the back of the frig and when you finally find it, it has things growing in it that just doesn't want to wash off? Don't throw it out, just squeeze a dot of Soft Scrub on it and watch it disappear! I like to use it on my tile back-splash because for one reason, it doesn't drip. You can squeeze a dot onto the wall and with a sponge, safely clean your tile or glass back-splashes. Most tile cleansers, drip all over the place before you can get it cleaned and then you have a bigger mess. Another great place to clean with Soft Scrub is your kitchen stove hood. Mine has an angle to it so if I spray it with another cleaner, it drips off onto the stove before I can catch it. Soft Scrub doesn't do that and it cleans off that dust and sticky, greasy residue that seems to always be on a stove hood.

Scent
Has a nice clean smell that doesn't over power your senses.
