CLR is a Terrible misleading product. Nothing but snake oil.... If you are looking for something to clean water scale build up, Look for any cleaning product with Citric Acid in it. Eg, Bar Keepers Friend. Works well, found it in Woolies or Strike bathroom cleaner.

I had previously removed about half of the lime and calcium buildup in my toilet bowl with other methods and hard scrubbing. So I thought about CLR. Used it today on the remaining buildup followed the instructions, scrubbed and scrubbed. But I can see NO difference. Very disappointed.

With so many bad reviews, why is this company still in business , all negative reviews are true
Tried it just like the TV commercial, but would love to know what products in the commercial they used because it was definitely not the one they advertised it’s a total scam

False advertising!!! CLR does not work!!! No stars preferred.
CLR doesn't work on anything it states.
Waste of time and money.
I have tried CLR a few times trying to con once myself that it worked as it says on the TV Advert and I have been disgruntled every time!!
Led to believe it was benign, but ...
My whole life, I thought CLR was a benign, food-safe product ... well, today I used it to soak my shower-head, and the whole house smells like 'chemical', a very potent, upsetting smell. If I could go back in time, I would instead use an orange-oil based product - something that can strip paint but leave your family safe and your home smelling like oranges ... I think it is a horrible product and very misleading in its advertising ...
sue them for false advertising this is so illegal come on people what are you thinking
you liers CLR dosent work the mold stays and the add looks so false dont wast your time bying CLR peace of crap take the add of tv and put add on that says

I have bore water and there are yellow stains in the hand basin and toilet, the shower glass looks dirty when it isn't, I thought this product was going to do what it claims to do, I used it undiluted, it did absolutely nothing.

Does what it says
Bought CLR for the first time ever when I moved to an apartment in Parkside SA.
HARD water!! Calcium deposits on sink, shower screen, bathroom floor - rock hard, not cleanable. Added CLR, almost undiluted. Left a few minutes. Deposits wiped away!
For stubborn deposits: Dampen sponge with water first, then use undiluted. Keep wet. Rub a bit. Repeat if necessary.
Note: I only give CLR 3 stars because I used it in my metal electric kettle, and it still smells!
After thorough hot rinsing, several jug-fulls of boiling water, and leaving to air a few days.
It did take some rust off (still had to wipe) but absolutely NOT WORTH IT!
Use it in the bathroom only, and learn to live with the stains and deposits in your appliances!!
More of a pesticide than a cleaning product
I used it to once to clean kitchen and tiles, but did not work as the ad said it would. This product has a foul smell too much to take that you would want to go outside for few minutes as it’s too toxic to inhale, far worse than bleach smell. Although when I couldn’t find my bug spray I reached for it and sprayed on the cockroach dead on the spot!
Literally does not work and never has
I first used this product way back when they advertised it as CLR CLEAR. It didn't work back then and doesn't work now as evidenced by the many terrible reviews here and elsewhere.
I only came here to write this review because I noticed they're advertising it on TV again. Not only does it not work as shown on the advertisements, it actually does very little to nothing at all.
Should be banned.
Questions & Answers
