About My Cleaning Secret

My Cleaning Secret by Simoniz is claimed to be an all-purpose cleaner that works on a wide variety of surfaces, including brass, copper, stainless steel, porcelain, and glass tops, to remove stains, tarnish, rust, and lime without chlorine bleach, stinky foams, rubber gloves, or scratching. My Cleaning Secret is also claimed to be useful for making your pots, pans, and ovens look like new, in addition to golf clubs, car rims, old barbecues, and almost everything else in your home.

In order to make something old look brand new, Simoniz My Cleaning Secret’s manufacturer claims you just have to dampen, dab, and wipe away.

But is it really that simple? In other words, can you expect My Cleaning Secret to provide a good value for your money? After all, you don’t want to waste your time or your cash on something that doesn’t work. To help answer this, consider the following:

What Sets My Cleaning Secret Apart from the Competition?

Other than that:

  • It appears to be safe for use on bare skin,
  • It can clean a variety of surfaces without scratching, and
  • It appears to be some kind of paste,

…the My Cleaning Secret website doesn’t provide any information about the ingredients it contains, how it can clean so many surfaces without scratching them, or answers to several other important questions. However, assuming that My Cleaning Secret works as advertised (we’ll talk more about this in a moment), there aren’t many products available on the market that could clean so many surfaces without being overly abrasive and scratching them.

Who Is Simoniz?

The Simoniz brand name has been in use since 1910 after George Simons founded company to sell his carnauba wax automotive finishes. Now, after more than 100 years, the name has been sold and acquired by several companies and is currently owned by Syndet Products.

What’s The Word with Consumers Regarding Simoniz My Cleaning Secret?

Admittedly, it’s a completely different product, but as we mentioned in our Fusion Styler article, X-in-1 products typically don’t perform as well as the single-use ones they’re intended to replace. But does this theory carry over to the Simoniz My Cleaning Secret? Unfortunately, Simoniz My Cleaning Secret is a newer product and didn’t have any online customer reviews available at the time of our research that could be used to answer this question.

However, My Cleaning Secret is owned and distributed by Allstar Products Group, who also makes numerous other popular ASOTV products including Spicy Shelf, Perfect Bacon Bowl, and Chop Magic. Among nearly 150 HighYa reader reviews, these products have an average rating of just 2 stars, with some of the most common complaints citing poor quality products that don’t work as advertised and poor customer service (difficulty reaching a live representative/processing refunds, numerous upsells during phone calls, etc.). While this may not necessarily be what you’ll experience with My Cleaning Secret, it’s something important to keep in mind nonetheless.

From a company perspective, Allstar holds an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, although they have nearly 250 closed complaints (as of 12/29/14), most of which reference the same concerns noted above.

Finally, Simoniz My Cleaning Secret is a trademark of As Seen on TV Wholesale, Inc., a “distributor of silicone foam, polyolefin foam, polyether foam, ethylene propylene terpolymer foam, neoprene foam, polyvinyl chloride foam, rubber foam and polystyrene foam” who also manufactures Scratch-dini. Among more than 40 consumer reviews on HighYa, this product has a 1.5-star rating, with common complaints also citing failure to work and difficulty obtaining refunds.

My Cleaning Secret Pricing & Refund Policy

Two sets of Simoniz My Cleaning Secret is priced at $9.95 plus $9.90 S&H, and comes with a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges.*

For this price, you’ll receive:

  • 2 Supersize tubs of Simoniz My Cleaning Secret (note: there is no indication how big a “Supersize” tub actually is)
  • 2 Double Sided Microfiber Cleaning Pads (“Soft on one side, with a scrubber on the other.”)

*This means that if you’re dissatisfied with My Cleaning Secret and request a refund, you’ll immediately lose half your purchase price in S&H charges. And by the time you factor in return S&H costs back to the manufacturer, you could end up spending more than you’ll ultimately receive as a refund.

If you’d like to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 855-704-5411.

Important note: If you watch the entire My Cleaning Secret commercial and wait for it to end, a popup window will appear and provide you with a $5 discount.

Can Simoniz My Cleaning Secret Provide a Good Value for Your Money?

Chopping to the Point: Without knowing exactly what My Cleaning Secret contains or reading any online customer reviews to gauge satisfaction levels, there’s no way to tell if it works as advertised. However, many of the company’s other products have reputations for not working well (or in some instances, at all), so you’ll probably want to keep this in mind prior to placing your order.

Finally, remember that if you do decide to roll the dice on Simoniz My Cleaning Secret, you’ll end up losing more money in S&H charges as you’ll receive in your refund.

    I was surprised!

    I purchase this product a few months ago, from Carol Wright, and like all on the forum, I was skeptical at first. I was reviewing all the comments abs for some off reason unbeknownst to me, I decided to try it. I took a before picture of an old T FALL pan which I loved, their lines never had problems other than just ware and tare.Iit become lack lustered and burnt on the handles and bottom. Also, I have a very old sink that never could Polish or take out the stains.

    I was stunned, not only did the stains started disappearing before my eyes, it shines like it never had done before. The pan also looks practically new. I took the time to take before and after pictures to show that with little effort, it did what it says it does. All you have to do is take a scrubbing spine bit a regular sponge must be damp not wet make a paste and with circular motions it does work. If it needs to be, you can reapply. This is science – if you scrub hard you are breaking the molecular compound. Let it react first with circular motion. I would like to upload the photos but there is no way to do it.

    I am a Christian Woman and I cannot lie. This does work. I suggest to all to do as I stated, it's science.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    My Cleaning Secret doesn't work

    I bought two different containers of “My Cleaning Secret” I kept one, and gave my daughter one. It DOES NOT WORK like they say it does. I have tried it on everything. The only thing that it might work on is pots and pans, but it takes a lot of elbow grease to go behind it to make it work. Which might do the same if you use Comet and a good scouring pad, and elbow grease. It is not worth the price you have to pay for it.

    If I had it to do over again, I would keep my money in my pocket and leave it with Publishers Clearing House.

    I will NEVER buy anything else from Publishers Clearing House again either. By the time they add all the shipping and handling and taxes, you could go to the next state and get it cheaper than ordering it from them.

    But back to, “My Cleaning Secret”. I don't know what is in it. But all I do really know for sure, IT DOES NOT WORK, so take my advice and keep your money in your pocket. The Greased Lighting works better for cleaning than “My Cleaning Secret' does. And that is no lie.

    My daughter also agrees with me about “My Cleaning Secret” not working like it say's it does.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    They must laugh all the way to the bank!

    Don't even try this. Except for the lady with the copper sink, I don't have any copper so I can't say. But for everything else? You'd have just as much luck with the bag of flour in your cabinet. Seriously. I followed instructions to the "T". NOTHING. It was so bad I was stunned. It didn't even have any reaction at all. I don't know how the BBB is not involved. I think this is PURE CRAP folks and I can usually find SOMETHING good to say Send your money to me and I'll send you some Brillo pads!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • Pots

    • Florida,

    Used this product this morning on some pots with a little scrubbing and all the burnt on the bottom did come off. I'm sure comet would have done the same though.

    This product works. It took all the stains out of my mother's pots. All it needed is a little scrub around stained area. I highly recommend this.

    It Works for Me!

    • Seattle, WA,
    • Oct 17, 2015

    I have had a copper sink for 7 years and tried everything I could think of to clean and shine the copper. The closest I could come to was baking soda and lemon juice. However, My Cleaning Secret blew that away with its shine and ease of use. My sink had a lot of patina on it, but using My Cleaning Secret polished it better than the soda and juice and after using it several times, it was still bringing back more of that new copper look than it had had in years. I love this stuff!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Comparing My cleaning Secret to Gumption Cleanser

    • Gelorup West Australia,
    • Sep 6, 2015

    My Cleaning Secret is a rich mans cleaner compared to Gumption which has been around for years and does just as good a job, both need a bit of elbow grease. Gumption retails at Bunning's for $4.95 or $5.95 regular. My Cleaning Secret some $50 for a two pack + Postage of some $9.95

    How can you compare them. Go Gumption. Set purely on price as I would not buy MCS on principal.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
