Overall Rating: 

At the risk of sounding totally gross and revealing the fact that I am horrible at keeping house, we had some olive oil build-up on the counter next to the stove.  We had a leaky olive oil container, and I'd clean it sort of half-heartedly, and before I knew it, we had a sticky, olive oily mess.  When I got the Mrs. Meyer's surface scrub, I figured that the olive oil gunk would put the scrub to the test.

The verdict?  My counter is olive oil free.  This is far more effective than using the baking soda/vinegar mixture that I fall back on, yet it isn't as toxic or stinky as Comet or Ajax.  

Like the Mrs. Meyer's soap I reviewed yesterday, this was also geranium-scented.  I like the geranium, but as I wrote about the soap, my husband thinks it has an "old lady" smell.  Sorry, hubs, tough noogies.  I'm gonna keep using this scrub, because it's green and it works.  But maybe next time I'll try another (more manly?) scent.

FTC Disclosure:  I received some samples courtesy of Mrs. Meyers Clean Day for review.
