Bon Ami is a company that makes all natural home cleaners. They use ingredients with names you can pronounce such as limestone, feldspar, and baking soda. They also use recipes, not formulas. Although the company originally began in the 1880s, their web site states:
“The Bon Ami formula has been updated for contemporary kitchen surfaces and contemporary sensibilities, with different products to meet different cleaning needs. The ingredients are simple, effective, and proudly listed right on the package. Bon Ami is always biodegradable, nontoxic and hypoallergenic.”
I had never tried Bon Ami products until recently. I was sent the items pictured above as well as an original formaula1886 cleaning cake to sample.
I have used all these products in my kitchen to clean dishes, counters, windows, and stovetop. I’m happy to report that they cleaned very well.
I have to admit, I found it rather strange to use the cleaning cake on windows, but it worked! I’m not used to using a cleaner in cake (or bar) form, but I’m getting used to it. It comes with a soft cloth that you moisten and rub on the cake, then on the surface you want to clean.
I liked all the cleaning products. The dish soap cuts grease and cleans the dishes as well as any other dish soap. The powder and liquid cleanser worked well on my sink. The powder also did a particularly good job on my glass stove top. The all purpose cleaner in the spray bottle works great for cleaning counters, tables, appliances, etc.
I’m quite impressed with the ingredients and performance of these products and plan on continuing to use them. While the products are gluten-free, I’m mainly offering this review and giveaway to you all simply because they are useful for kitchen cleaning.
