Making The Switch To Multipurpose Cleaners

It's hard to keep your home clean when you're constantly switching between different cleaners for each surface. Not only is it hard to remember which cleaner goes where, but it's also dangerous to mix chemicals that aren't meant to be mixed. You could easily end up with a toxic mess on your hands.

Handy Andy is the solution to all your cleaning woes! Handy Andy is a household name in South Africa, and it has recently introduced a new formulation of multipurpose cleaning creams, antibacterial bleach sprays and floor cleaners to market. We look at these great products and how they can benefit you and your family now.

How Handy Andy’s Multipurpose Range Can Benefit You?

Let’s take a deep dive into the multipurpose products that Handy Andy currently has on offer from your favourite retailer.

Handy Andy Cream Cleaners

Handy Andy multipurpose cleaners are now thicker than ever. The cream cleaner removes 100% of stubborn stains, tough dirt, and grease leaving no harmful residues or harmful smells behind. The cream cleaner range contains particles that are naturally derived, which means they are not plastic in any way. They are in fact, 100% calcite particles which enable the cream to be abrasive enough to lift and remove dirt from a variety of surfaces.

  • Eucalyptus

  • Lemon

  • Lavender

How is Handy Andy benefiting the environment?

To save every household from wasting plastic, most of the Handy Andy products – including cream cleaners, multipurpose sprays and floor cleaners – have a variety of refill sizes to choose from.
