WARNING - DONT USE ON CAESARSTONE BENCHTOPS!!!!!
Gumption is an ABRASIVE and will DULL the Surface of Engineered Stone Benchtops ----- DON'T USE on Caesarstone, Quantum Quartz etc
There is only one way to repair the Damage.... and about $550.00 to do so
Will make the Stone Benchtop DULL, Harder to Keep Clean, and More Prone to Staining....
Excellent for cleaning kitchen
Tried many expensive cleaning agents but nothing worked, Gumption worked like magic. Perfect for cleaning stone bench top, sink, kitchen tiles and grouting. The instruction on the box said to make a paste but i applied it straight from the box as the stains on the stone bench top were very stubborn. All stains and marks came off in one application and it looks new now.
Gumption all purpose cleaner
I have used this product as all purpose cleaner,brought older cooking pots back to looking new. Outdoor ceramic tiled bench near BBQ, which is under a large tree back to looking as if they were brand new. Any small jobs around the house, read the label on what is good for and I found it very easy to use.
Works when everything else doesn't!
We have clear glass shower screens in our house and even with using the Shower Power spray and taking pretty good care of them, they get a white build up so quickly and easily. We used two cans of BAM along with White Magic sponges and it got about 90% off, but there was stubborn all-over water staining (probably light etching) it just couldn't move. Tried oxalic acid (Barkeeper's Friend) and it didn't work. Neither did CLR. Then I found a video online of a professional cleaner demonstrating Gumption on a dirty shower and thought hey, why not t...ry it. And IT WORKED, even to get out those etched water stains! I rubbed it on with a paper towel, giving it a little elbow grease but not too much, rinsed it off, and then to finish used Windex with a paper towel to make sure there were no water streaks left. Clear shower screens again!!
Stainless Steel Sinks
Being a commercial cleaner, we stumbled across a unit that was cleaned by another cleaner. Some cleaners just don't know. They used bleach to clean the sinks, obviously in reaching distance after cleaning the bathroom. It made the sink discolour and look old. Using this stuff made the sink look brand new!
gumption multi purpose cleaner
the best stuff ever and this is one product I've never heard a bad review about not like Sharp latest 990 model convection microwave oven. I even use it for model train wheels to clean them and they come out like new, unbelievable, you can clean anything and especially stains they just disappear
nothing at all, its just magic
Used in the bathrom and kitchen for years but now i have a new use
So I didn't read the weather forecast and got soaked with rain on my Sunday morning bike ride and was foolishly wearing white socks, which by the time I returned were various shades of black and grey road grime. As we had run of the stain remover that usually gets the socks back to light grey when this happens I was desperately looking for an alternative and there it was sitting on the corner of the vanity basin, my tub of Gumption. In some warm water I worked some Gumption into the fabric enabling me to remove a significant amount of the stain...ing before reapplying it to the worst part of the staining, letting it sit for a few minutes before placing in a normal wash cycle. I now have socks that were whiter than they were before the ride. Also great for cleaning hands post bike maintenance :) Multi-multi purpose and doesn't feel too harsh on the skin.
I don't know what is in it but it works.
My mother (would be 101 today if she was alive) used it and I followed her lead.
I don't know what is in Gumption, but I suspect there is a bleach or something similar. It is great for cleaning all sorts of things, especially when there is a bit of staining. I had some terrible Ikea bench tops one time that were forever getting marked and stained, and Gumption always fixed them. One container lasts 5 to 10 years for me so it is very economical. It also seems to be a fairly mild abrasive.
Good for odd cleaning jobs like leather upholstery (purists would object though, I am sure).
Great cleaner, removes stains that others don't.
A must have cleaning product
The perfect multipurpose cleaning product, many people still do not know about Gumption.
It is an old product and a must have in every home.
No where near as toxic as many other cleaning products.
Love using this on the stainless steel sink, bathroom sink and shower, great for marks on walls.
*Slightly abrasive so do not use on some surfaces like two pack kitchen cupboards and varnished wooden floors.
It works!... Versatile, long lasting tub.
Does not seem to come on special at the supermarket.
I swear by it! Don't ever stop making it!
My mum introduced me to Gumption years ago and I have never looked back. Amazingly, no "elbow grease" required. You know that thick greasy grime around the stove and extraction hood? GONE! Long term soap marks on the shower screen? Gently smear it over and let it sit for a while and rinse it and the marks away! Greasy BBQ? Not a problem! And those impossible stains like turmeric, pollen, red wine - a gentle rub and the kitchen bench is white again!
So old-fashioned looking - I'm worried it won't be around for much longer, so when my stock runs out I buy six more tubs! Long live Gumption! With a bit of luck my kids will be raving to their kids about it too!
Great smell, reliable, not toxic or damaging to skin
Gumption for mirrors and windows!
I tried everything to clean what we thought was a damaged mirror in the bathroom. My husband wipes it with his hand when it is steamy leaving a swathe of film across the middle. I even scrubbed with other cleaning products including stainless steel soap pads to no avail. A good scrub with gumption left it sparkling like new. I noticed windows acquire build up to and with a bit of elbow work and gumption the results are amazing!
Best thing in the history of ever!
Lasts forever! It cleaned rust stains off my white sink, red hair dye off my white tub, pink house paint off my tiles floor tub and sink, pot scuffs in my white cupboards, i use it on a mop to clean oil stains off my kitchen wall from cooking. Doesn't scratch. You do not need gloves it really isn't strong at all unless u have a super sensitive nose/skin.
Shines stainless steel pots up like new, in fact anything silver/stainless steel. Use it on your cups and plates to get out coffee stains and counters to get out betroot coffee or curry stains. Put some on a toothbrush for in between your tiles. To avoid a cloudy residue make sure you wipe your bench after with a damp cloth. It really is the best.
An oldy but a goody!
Gumption has been around for years. I have been promoting it to my friends, family & work collegues. Just a little cleans a lot. Iclean everything with it. Those hard to shift stains & marks are gone. It can leave a residue, which can be removed with some vinegar on a cloth.
Questions & Answers
Can I use this to clean my Essastone Benchtop which has some old aged strains. Will it affect the stone ?
Is Gumption safe to use on golf cart perspex windscreens
I've never used it on Perspex! The trick with Gumption is to always wet the area you wish to clean first, then use a wet cloth with a small amount of Gumption on it, like a 'smear' and apply gentle force BUT I'd imagine Perspex is easy to scratch, so remember Gumption IS abrasive, albeit a very fine abrasive. Perhaps try a VERY small section first but if in doubt, don't!
Can you use this on Marble tile to clean the grout without damaging the marble?
I've not used Gumption on marble but I have used it on glass and stone benchtops, what I do is Wet the surface I'm cleaning first then use a wet cloth (paper towel) then apply some Gumption and use light to moderate pressure. I'd imagine marble tiles are pretty tough. Just Do Not use a scourer pad as Gumption is already a very fine abrasive. Ive even used gumption on a glass splashback to remove grease, the trick is, wet the surface you're cleaning first.
