Gloves Off: Heavy Duty Green Cleaning {Giveaway – 5 winners}

Gloves OFF I was recently contacted by Planet People with an offer to review one of their cleaning products from their Gloves Off product line.

I was very excited to work with them after finding out a bit more about their company and their commitment to bringing environmentally friendly solutions to the market.

All of the Gloves Off products contain ecologically-sensitive formulas that are revolutionary. I received a bottle of their Gloves Off Tough Stain Remover and I was totally impressed after using it to remove some crayon stains from our furniture. They were gone within seconds and without hard scrubbing.Before and After Gloves OFF

The Tough Stain Remover cleaning solution removes the toughest stains and spills without the use of any harmful chemicals. Instead of using corrosive chemicals they use “Dynamic Surface Tension Technology” to penetrate deep into the mess and lift and remove the stains.

This plant based and biodegradable cleaner is great to remove/clean dry latex paint, pet stains, greasy ovens & stains, soap scum, pen/crayon/marker stains, food & wine spills, chewing gum/adhesive, rust marks, coffee stains and many many more.



I love that Gloves Off can be safely use on wood, laminated surfaces, hard plastics, rubber, metal, glass, brick, clothing, upholstery and carper {great for removing stains in your car!}.

I found that there is really minimal odor. Gloves Off is actually non-irritating on skin also so you don’t really need to wear gloves at all times while cleaning {like with some other cleaners that are toxic and harsh on your skin and environment}.

I am totally looking forward to trying out the other products on the Gloves Off line of cleaners! Nothing like products that are safe for the environment and for our health!

Buy it: You can find Gloves Off products at The Home Depot, Canadian Tire, Kent and ICI Paint Store.

Win it: 5 lucky US/CAN readers will receive Gloves Off product vouchers. Enter to win via Rafflecopter below.

  13. Probably poop stains from my baby! Yes and no.. Sometimes it takes lots of time.

  14. The worst stains I have had to deal with happened a couple of years ago. We lived in the country and had a well that was so FULL of iron that everything developed a yellow tinge. My white dishes became yellow, white clothing was a complete ‘no-no’ in our house, but that was not the worst of it. When we would shower, bit by bit there would be a build up of yellow that became down right nasty. I actually took pictures at one point because it was so unbelievable and we could not find anything to remove it. I believe we spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $300 trying out different products. Finally we found a heavy duty institutional product made by Watkins that worked. We did end up moving elsewhere though because I was just so sick of the water issues. Sorry…I didn’t mean to add such a lengthy comment…

  15. vomit on couch. had to get new couch.

  16. My dog went #2 in my basement and I discoverd it many months later….. it was caked on like cement, had to use a knife to scrape it off

  32. My biggest stain was in our old tub.It had bad iron stains in it,I dod get it off with steel wool pad,but we have since bought a new tub.

  33. The worst stains are in the toilet – we have really hard water and minerals have precipitated out leaving a ring in the bowl. I’ve never been able to get the ring off, not the colour that adheres to it. Tried all sorts of stuff including bleach.

  34. The worst stain I had experienced was when I was repairing our asphalt driveway and somehow tracked some of it into the house. It took a lot of elbow grease to scrub it off.

  35. Paint on my ‘good’ shorts. Which is not so bad except my wife had just said ‘don’t paint in those shorts, they’re new’.

  36. When I was coloring my hair I got some of the dye on my bathroom wall. I didn’t get it off so I had to paint half the wall again.

  37. While doing an oil change on my car I spilled the pan of old oil all over the garage and then our dog ran through it and got it all over himself…I finally got all the oil stains out with a lot of elbow grease and it took 2 weeks to do it. The dog had to be washed also…

  46. The worst I have had to deal with recently has been cleaning the 1972 camper I acquired. There are 40 years of grime in that thing! I have been using dishsoap and water with a KNIFE! That’s right, a bladed object is the only way to really clean the grit out of certain things! No chemicals will do it, just sharp utensils and strength and persistence!

  51. Puppy accidents on my carpet, never got them out no matter how hard I tried.

  52. Puppy accidents! They finally came out after a lot of repeated cleanings- thanks for the giveaway!

  53. May 25-Yes, I’ve had some real headaches when it comes to stains. The only real remedy is for whites, which may be soaked in a mixture of 1/2 cup of Javex, 1/2 cup of dishwasher soap. in a bucket or set tub of hot water. Leave stained white articles for at least 30 minutes. Then check for stains. This works really well for white s but is hard on the fibers of the clothes. Tides Stain out Stick is really good if used immediately. Other than that, I have not had any real luck in removing stains although I think I have used most stain removers on the market.-el03ro

  54. May 25-use a plsstic bucket if not using a settub for above.-el03ro

  55. Doggie accidents, we use bac-out which works pretty well.
