    Mum tests five popular cleaning products on her grease-stained oven door to see which one is best

    Mum tests five popular cleaning products on her grease-stained oven door to see which one is best – and what she discovers will surprise you

    • A mother tested popular household cleaners on her greasy glass oven door
    • She tried Aldi ‘Scrubtion’ and Di-San spray, Finish Rinse Aid and Koh eco gel
    • After scrubbing the products on different parts of the door, she also tried water 
    • To her surprise, all cleaners – including plain water – produced identical results

    A wet sponge lifts tough stains from glass just as effectively as leading cleaning products that cost up to $29.95, a mother has revealed.

    A photo posted in an Australian Facebook group shows four chemical cleaners – Aldi’s $3.49 Scrubtion, Aldi’s $1.25 Di-San Spray, $8 Finish Rinse Aid and Koh’s $29.95 Universal Solution –  lined up on a greasy oven door.

    In the caption of the photo, the mum said she tested each product on a different patch of glass – which she hadn’t cleaned in a year – before scrubbing another part with a Koh ‘Diamond’ sponge, dampened with water.

    To her surprise, every cleaner produced almost identical results when scrubbed with the sponge – even water and good old fashioned elbow grease.

    An Australian mother was surprised to discover that all of these cleaners – (left to right) Aldi’s $1.25 Di-San Spray, $8 Finish Rinse Aid, Aldi’s $3.49 Scrubtion and Koh’s $29.95 Universal Solution – produced the same results as plain water scrubbed with a Koh ‘Diamond’ sponge

    ‘Moral of the story, get Koh Diamond sponge. I think it’s the secret ingredient to get the same results. So there ya go,’ the mother wrote in the caption.

    Her photo, which has been liked hundreds of times since it was uploaded on Wednesday, has drawn dozens of delighted responses from householders who say they will buy a $9.95 four-pack of the sponges and bin their usual cleaning sprays.

    Koh Diamond sponges are sold at Bunnings and online on the brand’s website.

    ‘Good old friction, just goes to show we don’t need all these chemicals as much as we think,’ one woman said.

    ‘Yep I say this to everyone – it’s all in the sponge,’ another added.

    Another advised scrubbing the door when the oven is still warm to make cleaning easier.

    Others cited a test conducted by consumer advocacy group CHOICE, which found plain hot water removed the same or more stains from floors as leading cleaning brands.

    But some said the sponges, which are designed to remove rust, mould and baked fats on oven walls, leave scratches on the glass.

    ‘I used the sponge once and it scratched mine so haven’t used it again,’ one woman said.

    Another called it a ‘glorified sanding block’ and said ‘you may as well buy fine grit sandpaper from Bunnings because it’s the same thing’.

    A product overview on Koh’s website describes the sponge as a ‘relatively low abrasive’, but warns against using it on ‘high gloss surfaces’ – like glass.

    The brand recommends testing the sponge on a small patch before starting to clean to avoid lifting paint or scratching surfaces.
