The Claim

The infomercial claims that My Cleaning Secret is the solution to your cleaning problems. You can now clean a variety of surfaces with ease, such as glass tops, copper, brass, stainless steel, porcelain, and even your rusty BBQ. Rather than putting up with a wide range of pans and other items looking dirty and messy, My Cleaning Secret will make them look brand new. The infomercial also goes on to explain that this product will help you to get rid of stains, rust, tarnish and lime. It can also help you say ’Goodbye’ to anything that’s been burnt or dried on.

How It Works

My Cleaning Secret by Simoniz will remove rust, stains, lime and tarnish from virtually any surface, making old items look new again. The cleaner works on stainless steel, brass, copper, porcelain, and more. Plus, it will never damage the items that you’re cleaning with scratches. Normally, you’d have to use chlorine bleach to remove some of the stains and such that it is capable of eliminating, but My Cleaning Secret is free of chlorine bleach.

Reviews Say: It Doesn't Work

Well over 100 reviews have been casted on this website since the product was first released to the public in late November of 2014. The over whelming response is that the product does not work as described on the infomercial. This is not a surprise.

Most As Seen on TV items do not works as good as they are advertised. When commercials are recorded, they portray the product in "best case scenarios". In this case, the stains that they show being removed are not as set in as your common stains at home may be. Further, the person using the cleaner is a trained professional. They know exactly what to do to obtain the optimal result. If a test of the product was conducted while shooting the commercial and it was unsuccessful, that footage would not be shown in the final edited version of the commercial. Commercials can also be edited. For example, if a product is shown cleaning a pan; it is possible for the editors to pause the recording, scrub the pan for an undisclosed amount of time, exerting an unknown amount of effort. When the camera resumes it appears that the formula has magically cleaned the pan with little or no additional effort. We are NOT saying this occurred in the My Cleaning Secret advertisement; as there are no facts which suggest such; however, it is a possibility for any television advertised cleaner.

NOT as BAD as People Say

When reading negative reviews on the My Cleaning Secret, you have to keep in mind that satisfied customers usually don't rush to a website a leave a review. When a person is satisfied with their purchase, they traditionally keep using it and do not speak of how great it works. The reason for this is because they expected it to work great; thus there is no reason to post on a website saying "it does what it claims". Cleaning products are supposed to do what they claim.

When a person is disgruntled because My Cleaning Secret didn't work as well as they expected, they are more likely to post negative reviews on the internet in an effort to 'vent their frustration' and 'get even' with the company for selling them a product which did not meet their expectations.

It Actually Does Work

While hundreds of reviews purport that it doesn't work, the fact of the matter is it does work! With that being said; it does not work as good as you may expect it to after watching the infomercial. It will not work on every stain and every surface. If you have a stained shirt that has been stained for months and been washed and dried dozens of times; then it is unrealistic to believe any stain remover will remove the stain. Likewise, if you have a pot which has been used and abused with burnt on food that has been an absolute disaster for years; the chances are NOTHING will repair it to 'like new' quality. Now if you were to apply that same cleaner to the shirt immediately after obtaining the stain; or if you were to apply the solution to your burn pot the first time an accidental mishap occurs, then YES of course it will work.

It does not work 'As Seen on TV'; however, it does in fact work!

#1 NEW Cleaning Product of 2014 / 2015

Did you know that 'My Cleaning Secret' is the #1 NEW Top Selling cleaner of both 2014 AND 2015?
The Reason: People want a miracle cleaner.

Unfortunately it hasn't become popular JUST because of the way of the way it works. There has been a massive amount of money invested in advertising this item on Notational Television. The commercial is expertly made and essentially, subliminally, claims to be a miracle cleaner. This is not new. This year a failed product from 2013 has also seen a massive resurgence for the same reasons: InVinceable Cleaner.
The InVinceable Cleaner is receiving the same caliber of customer reviews as My Cleaning Secret. Customers are overwhelmingly disappointed with both cleaners; while the odd few consumers report positive results. If you have realistic expectations, you will be presently surprised with the results of both solutions. If you believe that these substances will be the miracle cleaning solution that you've been waiting for; then be prepared to be disappointed.

Watch the My Cleaning Secret infomercial again. The video is on the top right side of this page here.
There are a few examples you should take note of.

  • Woman Cleaning Shower Door

    - We ASSUME that she is cleaning a shower door because it looks like white, enclosed, shower walls behind her. While it is quite possible that she is cleaning a shower door, we must only consider what we know for sure. She is cleaning a glass surface which we can see through. We don't know how dirty that glass was before she started cleaning it. It could have been perfectly clean. It looks like her cleaning solution works great; however, Windex works just as good on an already clean surface.

  • Cleaning Golf Clubs

    - The gold clubs shown in this commercial look horrible. A person could believe that they are rusted, or covered in difficult to remove dirt. The truth is, we do not know what the dirty substance on the golf clubs is. How long have they been dirty? Were they pretreated?

  • Cleaning Pots & Pans

    - It appears that the pots and pans cleaned in this infomercial have been stained for years and have their stains baked on dozens if not hundreds of times. It looks like Grandma's old pots and pans! Again, we must remember w know NOTHING about the stains on these items. To know how well My Cleaning Secret works, we'd first need to know what caused the stains and how long they've been there. Have they been baked on multiple times? If they have, then that is impressive! If not, then we've been duped by our assumptions.

  • Wiping Stove Top Fan

    - These surfaces are not hard to clean if you wipe then regularly. The build up is often caused by dust and grease fumes. If you wipe it at least once a week, they will always been clean and can be maintained using only water and a wish cloth. If you've neglected this area for some time then you will need a grease remove to break up the grease. Dish soap is excellent at cleaning greasy surfaces.

  • Stainless Steel Fridges & Stoves

    - The #1 reason these are dirty in most homes is because of fingerprints. To remove the finger prints and restore their shine, you can use 'wipes'.
    Here are 4 simple ways to clean stainless steel.

  • Tire Rims are Hard to Clean

    - At least that is what most people think. The reason a person may have difficulty cleaning tire rims is because they don't use anything to break down the grease. Rims get dirty doe to dirt being combined with grease and break dust. If you want to get your tire rims as clean as possible, don't use an 'all-in-one' house hold solution. Purchase something specifically design to clean rims. This will remove the dirt AND shine the chrome.
    Here's a good tutorial on Rim and Tire Cleaning.

Remove Rust!

One of the greatest claims this product makes is that it can remove rust. What you would say if I told you a can of coke (yes the soda drink), or even just vinegar, could do the same thing.
- 8 Ways to Remove Rust

How to Use (Step by Step)

  1. Prepare
  2. Get out your super-sized container of My Cleaning Secret, along with the included double-sided cleaning pad, and prepare a bowl of water to use with the solution.

  3. Dampen
  4. Dampen the cleaning pad in the bowl of water beside you.

  5. Dab
  6. After the pad is dampened, dip it in the container of My Cleaning Secret. Make sure this is just a dip, as you won’t need an enormous amount of the solution in order to clean something effectively.

  7. Clean
  8. Use the pad to gently scrub the surface of your item that you wish to clean, spreading the cleaning solution around and therefore eliminating stains and the like.


  1. Kitchenware
  2. My Cleaning Secret will remove messes like thick grease, rust, and dried, caked-on food from the insides and outsides of your kitchenware. It is ideal for cleaning brass, copper, and stainless steel pots and pans, since itself or the accompanying cleaning pad will not damage these objects.

  3. Porcelain
  4. My Cleaning Secret is also great for cleaning porcelain items, such as your toilets, sinks, and the inside of your tub. It will remove even the most stubborn lime stains that have appeared due to the use of water.

  5. Stainless Steel
  6. Besides kitchenware, My Cleaning Secret will effectively clean other objects around the house that are made of stainless steel, such as oven handles.

  7. Golf Clubs
  8. If your golf clubs are rusting, or have experienced a buildup of dirt over time, a quick wipe with My Cleaning Secret will make them look new again.

  9. Tire Rims
  10. You can even use My Cleaning Secret for outdoor purposes. For instance, if you've got rusting tire rims, or these are covered in mud or salt, this solution will wipe them clean.

  11. Rusty Barbecues
  12. My Cleaning Secret will remove a coating of rust from an outdoor barbecue without ruining its look or requiring the use of bleach during the process.

Positive Points

  • Trusted Company
  • My Cleaning Secret is made by Simoniz, a company that has been making similar products for more than 100 years. Hence, you’ll know that you’re getting a certain level of quality when you invest in the product.

  • No Stench
  • Unlike some other household cleaners, My Cleaning Secret has no foul smell, so you’ll be able to use it for a long time without feeling disgusted.

  • Rubber Gloves Not Required
  • With some household cleaners, users have to wear rubber gloves, since these solutions may irritate their hands. This is not the case with My Cleaning Secret, especially since you’ll just be dipping a cleaning pad in the solution without touching it yourself.

Save Money

My Cleaning Secret can clean virtually anything well, so you’ll no longer have to purchase separate cleaners in order to clean different surfaces. That means you’ll save the money that you would have otherwise spent on those additional solutions.

Rip-Off on Amazon

My Cleaning Secret is currently for sale on Amazon for $25.00 with free shipping. This is more than you'd pay if you bought from the official site AND it is only for 1 tub NOT 2. When buying on Amazon there is no buy 1 get 1 free deal. If you look at the Amazon site it clearly states: "Product Contains: 1 Supersize tub of Simoniz My Cleaning Secret Cleaning Solution by Chef Tony".

There is a link that says "2 new from $9.95" When you click this link it just forward you to the official My Cleaning Secret sales page. There is no relation to Amazon; other than they receive a commission on the sale.


Simoniz offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. This sounds great until you read the fine print. If for any reason you are not happy with My Cleaning Secret, you can send it back for a 100% refund of the purchase price. WAIT! "The Purchase Price" is $9.95, you paid a total of $19.85. The Shipping fess are NOT refundable. Additionally, you'll have to pay to mail the tubs of cleaning solution back to them at your own expense. This means you will have spent a total of $24.80, been refunded $9.95, for a total loss of $14.85 is shipping fees.

This doesn't even take into consideration the hassle of returning it. Before you can return anything you must contact them at 1-855-704-5411 and request a Return Authorization number. They will then provide you with specific return instructions. If you fail to follow this procedure, you will not have any money returned.

So What? So if you are unhappy with the product, you are better off just cutting your losses and not returning it.


My Cleaning Secret does work; however, not as good as the commercial leads you to believe. It is worth the money when compared with other similar cleaning products. There are household products that you likely have in your cupboards right now that will work just a good if not better. There are more negative reviews than positive due to customer's expectations not being met. Customer Service is horrid and average shipping time is 3 weeks.
Bottom line: It works, but it's not a miracle cleaner. Be sure to read this FULL report before buying.

Absolutely Amazing

This stainless steel frying pan was bought in 1986, so it has seen a lot of cleaning as well as a lot of frying, nevertheless it did show its age especially around the handle and under the rolled edge. I brought it to my daughter's home to do some cooking and she gave it back to me in as good as it was when it was brand new. Proud to have it on the stove if someone comes in. I am going to have to look for some so that I can clean the rest of the pots and pans.

Waste of Money

Thought it was a paste, had to pry the lid off and when the lid came flying off half of it spilled out, then when I used it on my pans nothing happened. No matter how hard I scrubbed nothing came off the pans. I bought this from Publishers clearing house so I really wasted my money!

Ordered through the website and gave my credit card info. Three days later credit card company called me and notified me of several fraud charges. Didn't use my card after the online purchase so I know someone there took my card info and made a fake card to make the transactions. Not only is their product fake and the company fake but they are thieves too. DO NOT BUY this O product.

Never buy them online. You can buy these at Walgreens, Target, Walmart. They all have an "As Soon on TV" section with products. That way, if the product doesn't work, bring it back to them. Easy. Simple. No shipping charges.

After I was charged over $300 for a magic bullet ( wine and infomercials shouldn't mix ) and then seeing it for $20 at CVS I vowed I would never get scammed again. . . So now I wait until these types of products come out in stores. Just look for the "as seen on TV" section and you'll find quite a few products) Yes most of them are crap but a few are actually worth buying. This way you aren't scammed into double offers, double shipping and double the crap that laying around.

  • Write Your Reply

20 Jan 2015 is a very reliable site to purchase As Seen on TV items. You won't pay anything until you see and agree to the full total of your order. You get to confirm the payment twice before they receive any of your money. Also their shipping is very fast, usually about 5 days. If they are out of stock they don't sell the item to you. There are also no buy one get one free scams.
