Review for CLR Metal Clear

Do you often see products advertised on TV and think, I should try that, but I bet it doesn't work as well as they say it does. I'm often skeptical, but lately I'm finding that every product I try made by Jelmar does do what it says it will do.

CLR Metal Clear is a multi-purpose cleaner that will not only clean, but will shine, too. This product can be used on:

  • stainless steel
  • aluminum
  • chrome
  • porcelain
  • corian
  • granite
  • enamel
  • laminate counter tops

Proof That This Product Does Work!

Originally, I thought this product would be great for cleaning the break dust, dirt, and grime off of our vehicle's wheel rims. Then I started thinking about the different items in my kitchen that I could use it on.

I have a saucepan that I use quite often, and one day I came home to find it burnt looking on the outside. It was one of those cases of "it wasn't me." The two pictures show the results of using Metal Clear. This was a test to see how well this product would work and I was quite happy with the results. The pan took three minutes to clean. Since it worked so well, I went back and applied it a second time to clean the rest of the pot.

Instructions: How to Use CLR Metal Clear

  1. Apply a bit of the CLR to a clean damp cloth.
  2. Briskly rub onto the surface to be cleaned.
  3. Rinse under cool water and dry.

Please note: It is recommended that you do not leave the product on for more than three minutes. When using on anything such as the inside of a pot, be sure to rinse really well to make sure that all the product is removed.

Cleaning Stainless Steel is a Breeze with Metal Clear

  • Bring the inside and outside of those stainless steel pots and pans back to looking brand new with very little effort.
  • Clean the grime off of those metal rings around your stove burners with ease.
  • I tried it on my kitchen's stainless steel sink, gently rubbed, and rinsed with cool water. In two minutes, my sink was clean and shiny. Normally I use Comet and scrub for at least five minutes, and then rinsing seems to take forever. With CLR it was fast and easier with great results.

My Rating

5 stars for CLR Metal Clear

Five Star - Really?

I personally give this product a five star rating because it works exactly the way in which it is advertised to do. The instructions are clear on the bottle on how it is to be used, and I am very happy with the results of this product.

        Can I use this product on steel siding to remove exhaust smoke from my riding lawn mower without removing the paint.

        Last week a container of CLR tipped over on to its side. I neglected it for a few hours, thinking it was solidly capped and I was extremely busy out of house. I righted it and didn't give it any thought. Then the tile floor became sticky. Extremely sticky. Took my shark steamer and ended up with a waxy substance in the grout lines of tile. Now it is impossible to remove. I scrape it with a sharpish object and it continues to creep along grout like a horror movie. There must be a solvent I can use. Please advise.

        CraftytotheCore, I've used CLR Metal Clear Cleaner on my stainless steel sink and it does a beautiful job. When I run out though I find that Comet cleans it up quite nicely too. Many people think that the Comet will scratch the sink but Comet when a little wet turns into a paste and doesn't hurt the stainless at all.

        What a great product review. My stainless steal sink gets grimy looking and I'm constantly scouring it. I will definitely try this cleaner. For the post and pans too!

        I've used CLR for hard water deposits for years, but never heard of this derivative. You can bet I'll give it a try, though - I'm pleased enough with regular CLR to give anything they make a shot.

        RH, I still have just one teflon that I use and a few frying pans that are teflon, but for the most part I prefer now to use the stainless steel pots. I do want to get a few cast iron though.

        I love CLR! I have used it for years. It cleans great and is so handy for so many things. I used the "regular" CLR for my bathrooms and kitchen. It's great! Great hub! Voting up and useful. :)

        I didn't realize this was a new hub! Ah! And I need some of that stuff.

        I recently threw away a pan because the Teflon was flecking off. They can all fleck off. I never want to buy Teflon again. All my pans that are metal - have stayed good for so many years! They last better than anything.

        Lipnancy, I added the CLR product into the hub that will remove calcium deposits, rust and lime.

        I have never used CLR. I wonder how it would be for calcium deposits. Our region is famous for Calcium deposits.

        Ardie, Thanks for reminding me of my irons. I have three ... why? My twins ski and snowboard. They've used 2 of the irons to wax their ski's/snowboard, and now you've got me thinking I should try the Metal Clear on them. I didn't start out with 3 irons of course. Just one and then bought another because the first one got used for the waxing ... then the next one. The third one I have hidden. Kids gotta love em :)

        Susan, I love CLR! It gets lime deposit off so well, too. 5 stars to this product. Everyone should have it on hand because it has so many great uses that can be applied.
