Bon Ami is truly the original green cleaner.  It's been around for 120 years, which is awesome...this ain't no 21st century greenwashing here.  Back in those days, people weren't using harsh chemicals to clean things.  They were using simple ingredients, which is exactly what Bon Ami does.  Their ingredient list is simple and relatively short!   Their containers are also either recyclable or made from recycled materials.  

We've been canning our own marinara sauce like crazy these days, which is fun, but messy.  I let the splattered marinara sauce sit on the stove overnight so I could test the Bon Ami Liquid Cleanser on it the following morning.

OK, so that's the Bon Ami bottle and the marinara sauce with some of the liquid cleanser on top of it.

I was really surprised at how easily this caked on sauce came off.  It's far more effective than most simple spray cleaners I've tried.  I think I'll definitely save this stuff for the messiest of messes.  The Tangerine Thyme scent is pleasant and barely noticeable, yet still clean smelling.

The cleanser did need a lot more rinsing than I anticipated, though.  It initially left a streaky residue that I wasn't prepared for, and even after rinsing twice it still left a little behind.  I think it would be easiest to rinse with a water-filled spray bottle.

FTC Disclosure:  I received some samples courtesy of Bon Ami for review.
