Spring Cleaning: Making tough jobs a breeze with the power of Mean Green

My husband and I purchased our first house in July of 2012. Our well maintained, brick ranch was in move in condition – neutral walls, neutral floors, and a far contrast from many of the homes we looked at! Of course with any home, over the years you like to make updates and renovations. Yesterday, we had new countertops installed in our kitchen by Home Depot.

Prior to the installation, we had white laminate countertops. I’ll admit, they were in great shape and served their purpose, but do you know how hard it is to keep white countertops clean when you have a family of four? I can’t tell you how much Hawaiian Punch, red wine and coffee has been spilled over the last four years.

I opted for high-pressure laminate countertops by Wilsonart. One, I can’t say with 100% certainty that this is our “forever” home and I wanted something that was budget friendly, versatile and beautiful. Besides, have you see the innovations in laminate over the years? It’s definitely not the laminate of the late 60s and 70s.


The crew was in and out rather quickly – 2 hours. Now that my countertops are all brand spanking new, everything else didn’t look so hot. I reached for my Anti-Bacterial Mean Green Multi-Surface Cleaner and got to work. I used it to wipe down the cabinets, sink, oven, and microwave. In total cleaning mode, I even wiped the base boards down and sprayed the cleaner on the floor and went over it with my Shark Professional Steam Pocket Mop. Seriously, my base boards look brand new. And I’m still scratching my head as to how a brief clean up turned into a deep clean.

This multi-surface cleaner is great for cleaning and disinfecting kitchen areas. Bleach-free, (which I appreciate) this product kills 99.9% of household germs and doesn’t leave a harsh, unpleasant odor. I love it!

  1. Wilsonart Technical & Fabrication Group………………We have not tested this cleaner on laminate or any of our other engineered surfaces. After reviewing the MSDS, for laminate contact the pH levels in the Mean Green product are a concern with use on laminate. Typically, when pH levels of 12 or above are apparent in cleaners they start to damage the melamine surface. Wilsonart would suggest the decorative surface may be cleaned with warm water and mild soaps, such as those used for hands or dishes. Do not use cleansers that contain abrasives, acids or alkalis; they will damage the decorative surface. The use of baking soda and a mild cleaner mixture and use of a soft-bristle tooth brush can be used to remove some stains, immediately cleansing with warm water and mild soap. Removal of stubborn stains such with a 2-minute exposure to hypochlorite bleach such as Clorox, followed by a clean water rinse. If we can further assist, please feel free to contact Wilsonart Technical & Fabrication Group at 1-800-433-3222. Feel free to ask for Richard Conde, Manager of Technical Services.
