I cautiously tried it out on a tin. I have a bowl with straight pine sol, and a second one with water.
Initially, I stood on a chair, but then I went and got a step ladder to reach the items on the shelves.
Ok. So, I gently scrubbed with a brush in a circular motion. I could see it cutting the dirt. Then, I took a microfiber towel and wiped it off.
I didn't get a "before" picture on the tin because I didn't think of it until it was too late and my grime was gone.
This is an After Picture
Thus encouraged, I continued. I placed a towel on the table to sit my objects in after cleaning. I needed to clean the shelf once it was emptied off.
I used a brush and non-diluted Pine-sol. It just cut right through the crud. Then I rinsed the object off.
The dust was a sticky dust. That Pine-sol cut right through it.
Ugh. Dust where there wasn't anything to block the accumulation. So. A Pine-sol soaked rag, wiped across the shelf, removed the crud with hardly any elbow grease.
The accumulation of items was as time placed them. Putting them back on the shelf changed the arrangement to cookies by the tea, pasta by the noodle strainer.
You get the picture..
Well. It's all back on the shelves. It's sort of like it was, but different.
