When I saw this video for President’s Choice Green All Purpose Cleaning Putty Super Strength I was intrigued! I have been trying to find a way to clean my copper pots and bring them back to life. So I tweeted President’s Choice to see if it would work on them:
@suzieridler It’s great for copper- the natural mineral powder and mild biodegradable surfactants clean to a brilliant shine 🙂
Sounded good to me! I was in.
I got the copper pot I use the most to product test the Cleaning Putty, as well as my stainless steel tea kettle. To see the product test in action, watch my short video.
BTW, I was wrong, there are directions on the container! I thought the lower half of the container was French and discarded it but I did figure out how to correctly use the product.
I bought the Cleaning Putty for $3.99. I figured that if it worked great on my copper pots, it was a fantastic investment.
As I mentioned before, the packaging is a big part of the problem for me. I am glad they have all sorts of information about how it works great without using harmful chemicals but the green text on the white was hard for me to read, especially the light green text. By the time the directions showed up in all caps (ugh!) I honestly could not see it.
The Cleaning Putty worked fabulously and quite easily on my stainless steel tea kettle and it looks new again! I also used it on a brass piano lamp I have and it brought it back from the dead.
Copper pots though? Waaaaaay to much work! It did work but the physical effort it took was just too much for me. I came up with an alternate way to easily clean copper pots which I share at the end of my video.
President’s Choice Green All Purpose Cleaning Putty Super Strength is very good on stainless steel and brass and is definitely worth the $3.99, especially if you are looking for a cleaner that does not use harsh chemicals, is fragrance- and dye-free with no volatile organic compounds. My biggest complaint is the packaging, I found it so reader-unfriendly. As a result, I give this product four out of five wooden spoons.
For copper pots? Don’t bother. Watcy my video instead! All I can say is, Martha Stewart is always right.
