Mr Sheen has changed, very disappointed
I recently bought some Mr Sheen. I had difficulty finding it at first, as I was looking for the traditional brown toned can with cream lid. It is bright red now and just touch the lid and it breaks into pieces. I thought "oh well it has been a long time, hopefully it is only the packaging that has changed"... So I started using and immediately I knew it was different. One, it does not smell nice like it used to, and two, it does not work half as well. What a disappointment. Why would someone change the recipe of something that worked wel...l and was very popular? If the makers see this review I would like you to reconsider returning to the original recipe. If not, I predict the product won't sell well and will, eventually, be taken off the market. Such a shame this iconic product has been altered for the worse.
But... “Trigger Pack” version of Mr Sheen makes RUST !
I have used the pressure pack spray version of Mr Sheen for many years to polish and preserve the hardware such as cymbal stands and shell fittings on my drum kits. One time in an attempt to be more Earth friendly I tried the “trigger pack” version to preserve a brand new snare drum and found the fittings RUSTY the next day! I was not impressed. After that I returned to only using the product in the steel pressure pack.
Mr Sheen Multi Surface Polish
The name on the tin of Mr Sheen that I have, is stated as above, "Mr Sheen Multi Surface Polish". It also says "with Weatherguard." It has the same smell and foamy texture as the Mr Sheen that has been around since the 1950's
I use this product for cleaning the see-thru visor on my motorcycle helmet and the white fairings on my scooter. It puts a smooth surface on everything I clean and if the surface gets wet, it will make the water bead, so it runs off easily.
I use it as a finishing product on tables and benches and It also cleans off so...
Mr.Sheen New Fragrance
Mr.Sheen works beautifully on leather, when no time for leather protecting and polishing, use in between.
Old Mr. Sheen ran out so purchased new Fragrance, OMG within 5 mins the smell was making me feel sick, smells like bathroom hygiene products, gag!!! Bring back the retro old smell!! Had to do the lounges and chairs in stages so not to be overcome by the fumes, but you sure work little Mr.Sheen, love you little man!!!
Mr Sheen does what it says.
How silly to say it attracts dust, you just see it more. It can't create dust, besides if you want dust free surfaces it should be polished say once a week and a light dust over should be done each day and that takes a couple of minutes Mr.Sheen may show it up but kept clean it's magic.
You should dust every day. Our dead skins cells make up most of the dust. Often if you are dusting wrong all you are doing is moving it around. Always use a damp clothe to dust it actually takes the dust away, you are putting it into the clothe and not makin...g it float around the air to find a new dusting spot ... without a damp cloth all you are doing is rearranging the dust. Hope this is helpful. Works as it says. So easy to use. Smells and looks great when the room is done. I really love the product and is what I have stuck with. I don't like aerosols or sprays that create too fine a mist.I also miss the adds.
a good furniture polish
A lovely furniture polish that has a very subtle scent to it. it gets the furniture clean and is not that expensive to buy its available from all the major supermarkets. My only issues with this polish is that it seems to attract the dust. Only a day after dusting there is often a big film of dust again on the surfaces that i just dusted the day before. So although it does clean well it does attract the dust making you use more product and also using up more time and energy which is a precious commodity in my household.
smells nice gets the job done
attracts the dust
Questions & Answers
Do woodworm like eating furniture that have been polished with Mr Sheen, or is Mr Sheen a deterrent??
Does it work well on windows? I find that It cleans ok but goes like a thin wax after the sun has been on it.
