Not anti viral disinfectant
After searching the net a lot, reading one incorrect note on this liquid, I chased the supplier twice. As expected, it could not say if Pineocleen kills viruses.
I note that the bottle only refers to e.coli and staphylococcus, which are bacteria; NOT VIRUSES.
I can only ascertain that bleach (properly handled), methylated spirits (alcohol) and Glen 20 spray kill viruses, as well as hand sanitizers with at least 70% alcohol.
Take care everyone, anti bacterial DOES NOT MEAN ANTI VIRAL.
My Favourite Disinfectant
I love this product and use it around the house without diluting it especially in the toilet and bathroom area. My favourite product is the lavender and pine which I pour into spray bottles and spray everywhere particularly the toilet and bath knowing that it will clean germs until I thoroughly clean my house during the weekend. Having school children I know that they are susceptible to picking up germs but with this product I have peace of mind that my home is as germ free as I can make it. My favourite fragrance is lavender then pine which I ...purchase quite often but when they are on special always buy more. After mopping the floors I always spray where I have mopped for that extra peace of mind using pine and my children comment on how they love the freshness of this fragrance after I have finished. Hopefully this will give them fond memories of their home as I have of Pine O Clean

After the cricket ball ad and now the coaster ad I vow NEVER TO BUY THE PRODUCT AGAIN! To spend your money on something so gross is totally misreading your target market. Either you were conned by your ad agency or you are ill informed on what the buyers want. Big mistake...... I mean.....huge!!

Terrible Pino clean advert
The admen who made the disgusting pino clean commercial with the teeth coaster cleaning is appalling . They may think that its smart to put this on our screens , but it isnt I reach for the oppositions brand now ! Treating the viewers with so much contempt . Wake up Pino clean you have done a lot of damage to your brand .
When Disinfectant doesnt smell like Disinfectant
I have been using Pine O Cleen for the past 30 years and have always found it to be
extremely efficient however, I never really like the perfume of the product until I tried
Pot Pourri. I have an old dog getting to the end of his life and use this product to clean,
disinfect and freshen our home after his little mishaps. Not only is it effective, now it
smells like I have just sprayed the home with an expensive air freshener. I hope Dettol
continue to produce this product. I have been finding It difficult to find at the Woolworths
Great all purpose product
I always have this in the house. I keep a spray bottle near my shower and use it on the glass and on the shower floor to clean up as I go. I once hired a cleaner who commented my shower glass was spotless with no water stains and wanted to know what I used... I pointed to my spray bottle of diluted pine o clean. I also use it on my floors, toilets, and benches. The downside of the product is the bottle. I brought a new bottle recently and when you open it and go to pick it up when it's full it goes everywhere. You have to be careful. I'd hate to think how others who may have arthritis in their hands, etc cope with this bottle. Perhaps they should be considering a different design with a handle to make it easier to use.
Not User Friendly
I have used this wonderful 1.25ml product for over 20 years and would buy no other. I gave this a one star because of the bottle. It used to have a handle but some bright spark thought it should be changed. Big mistake. I now have arthritis in my hands and many times the bottle has slipped out of my hands. A handle would fix this. I did write to them when it happened and got some fob off reply. If the design is so great, why hasn't all the others changed to your design. Mmmmmm? Time to go back to what worked and quick.
Pine o Cleen Disinfectant
Hi. Thanks for a wonderful product. I have been using this product for more than 20 years. Have tried different brands, but come back to pine-o-clean every time. The only thing is. ***CAN YOU PLEASE BRING BACK THE BOTTLE WITH THE HANDLE ON**. My elderly mother finds its very difficult to handle the bottle and often falls out of her hands and goes everywhere!!! My mother thinks it is the greatest and wouldn't use anything else, as do I.
Many Thanks, Hope you can bring back the handle for everyone!!
Does the job well BUT ........
Excellent for cleaning or mopping the floor, the house smells so good.
Keep in mind this product is on the animals testing list as it has been tested on animals!!!
After discovering this i have edited my review & revised the star rating!!
White homebrand vinegar is a great alternative!
Dettol Pineoclean Antibacterial Disinfectant - Badly Designed Container.
Whilst trying to open the plastic bottle for the first time I had difficulty, first of all with the fact that there was no handle, and secondly, with
the design (which is tall and skinny, weighing 1.25 litre). I finally manged to break the seal and in doing so inadvertently squeesed the soft
sides of the bottle only to end up with much of the contents spilling all down the front of my clothes. I just think a more practical sturdier
container with a handle would have prevented this. I am an elderly lady who in my time have opened many bot...
Questions & Answers
Does multi purpose cleaner and disinfectant kill covud19 on surfaces
I checked Pineocleen spray too. I believe it DOES NOT KILL VIRUSES. These products clean a surface, so that it can be disinfected better, by something else.
Having tried and researched so much, I now have methylated spirits in a spray bottle (cheap). Glen 20 spray has also saved my sanity, as I simply spray it on some products that I put in my fridge. (I do however worry about the chemicals and it is costly.)
Disinfectant also has to be left on a surface for ten minutes or so. It is best to ensure the surface is dry later too.
Supermarket items that I don't need to put in my fridge, are not touched for three days, due to the virus remaining on cardboard for one day and on plastic for three days.
