Love Love Love
I've been using YL Thieves household cleaner and this works even better. While the added oils gave Ava Shield a stronger scent, it does seem to do a better job cleaning and gives me confidence knowing that the germs are gone. I love this cleaner for everything from kitchen counters to bathrooms!

I highly recommend this product!

Unbelievably powerful and great smelling cleaner
If I could give this 10 stars I would!! The scent is unbelievable! The effectiveness at cleaning is delightful! I baked BACON, when I was done I sprayed the baking sheet with the AVA cleaner and wiped it, then rinsed it, and IT WAS CLEAN! As easy as that! I love this product, I’m forever hooked.

Best Cleaner Ever
I love this product along with my friends and family now. I received a sample and was not thinking of buying it until after I tried it. Have never looked back to any other cleaner. OMG clean to the back of your stove. Where other cleaners still leave a residue, Not this. The smell is also very light. In addition it works fantastic on my granite.

Too "soapy" to use the way I would like.
I'll admit first off that I am an avid Thieves Cleaner user and wanted to get something comparable but nix the "membership", extra shipping costs, and save some money. I was really excited to get the Ava Hard Surface Cleaner and hoped to be able to use it like I do the Thieves Cleaner. Not really able to do that. At first, when pouring a tablespoon into a container (like I do with my Thieves) I noticed it is very thick. I dabbed my finger on the measuring spoon and rubbed my fingers together to find it had a greasy feel. My first thought was that it was in a carrier oil and I was very unhappy. After using it a bit, I believe that it is actually in a combination of carrier oil and soap. I'm not really thrilled about that and was looking for more of a solution like the Thieves Cleaner. I'm going to try and use it since it is open and paid for, but I did use my points to get it and I didn't pay much. Maybe it will grow on me, but at this time I am not a huge fan, unfortunately. I really wanted this stuff to be my new go-to cleaner.

Never fails to provide amazing results!
I love this product! The smell is amazing and the cleaning power never fails to impress. Cleaning some items I purchased at a garage sale. I didn’t think the items were very dirty but, well it was a garage sale. I thought I’d give this new cleaner a chance to show me what it could do. Wow! The dirt started rolling off. I’m making this my go to hard surface cleaner for now on.

Only thing i clean with
This is the only thing I've been cleaning with. It lasts a long time and does everything. I keep a spray bottle in the kitchen and the bath. Ive even for extra stinky towels put some in the washer.
(I inadvertently figured out it kills ants on the spot. Worth continued investigation)

Is this meant only to remove dirt, mess, and odor only, or could it maybe help sanitize a bit? I acknowledge it's difficult to word things without messing with fda guideline, so I'm only asking for an in general type of way.
Chelsea N on Jan 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm not a professional in any way on this subject, but I do feel that it is helping to sanitize. The bottle says "This Hard Surface Cleaner Concentrate contains 10 essential oils known for their ability to clean and purify surfaces, while leaving a fresh invigorating scent."

That scent is a mix of citrus and cinnamon bark, and it's lovely. It's not overpowering and reminds me a bit of Christmas. It's a fantastic cleaning product and you won't regret purchasing it.
Is it safe around animals? I have read Eucalyptus is bad for them.
Jennifer R on Jan 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have 2 cats and 1 dog inside the cabin. I haven't noticed any ill effects from using this around them. I don't use it to clean their food and water bowls, but I have never used anything other than water and a rag for that. I wouldn't hesitate to use this in your home with pets, just don't use it on surfaces they will be eating or drinking directly from.
Do I still need to use glass spray bottle with this? I hate the glass bottles I bought. The sprayer already stopped working.
A shopper on Jan 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Because you're diluting this, a plastic spray bottle will work just fine! I don't use either, I simply dilute what I need in a bucket and go to town cleaning everything I can. You could also just pour out a dab onto your sponge or cloth and add water.

I just realized that this comes in a plastic bottle, so that should help ease your concerns over needing glass or not. Hope this helps!

It's a fantastic cleaner, by the way, you won't regret purchasing it!

Is this similar to YL Thieves cleaner?
A shopper on Mar 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have both and I really like both of them. Not sure how they compare but love the smell of Rocky Mountains hard surface cleaner and I use it a lot.
The bottle doesn’t say how to use... obviously spray on surface- then what? Wipe with a dry cloth? Damp cloth? Let sit? My bottle of Ava shield does not say.
MELISSA O on Mar 6, 2018

What surfaces is this safe for?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have used this on every surface in my kitchen! Countertops, dishes, sinks, stoves, and ovens. We live off-grid so we don't have a bathroom, but I wouldn't hesitate to use it in there if I did. I did use it to clean and disinfect the shower pan we have as well. It's great for everything!
What's the self life when its diluted in water?
Amanda on Jan 19, 2018

When using this, do you need to wear gloves? Sometimes I need to wear them with traditional cleaners because they irritate my skin.
Carol C on Mar 12, 2018
I personally do not use gloves and would consider myself as having sensitive skin. I use it multiple times a day. My family no longer uses anything else to clean with. I'm very happy and feel I'm doing my lungs a favor not breathing in dangerous chemicals. I hope this helps and as always with trying anything new be careful and do a spot test. One of my favorite uses is clean mirrors and windows with AVA!
How big is the bottle? Can't seem to find the amount.....
Bstar on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Ava Shield Hard Surface Cleaner is a 16 oz bottle.

Would this be a good bathroom cleaner.....tub, floors, mirrors, toilet?
Haley B on Feb 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes! I cleaned my whole bathroom and it looked and smelled “fresh”. Smudges came off mirrors, toilet bowl came clean, floors weren’t sticky. I added a few drops of cinnamon bark, and clove and lemon to my batch to spice up the scent. I think this product has a scent similar to Method bathroom cleaner and I like a warmer smell.
Hey, what about wood surfaces? Can you use it for dusting?
Carrie B on Jan 26, 2018

Does it have animal ingredients?
A shopper on Apr 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Our Ava Shield Hard Surface Cleaner is free from animal product/byproduct. All of the ingredients are natural and plant derived.


-RMO Team
I have a concern. Why are there twice as many chemical agents in this concentrate, as in another competitor's? That is NOT including water or the oils. I thought the oils were supposed to do the cleaning, not the cleaning agents added in a concentration higher than the oils.

can this be used on granite and travertine?
A shopper on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The Ava Shield Hard Surface cleaner works great and most hard surfaces, including granite. However, for travertine, we would suggest testing a small area first to make sure that the stone can handle it.


-RMO Team
Effectiveness-wise, how does this compare to DIY recipes made with Vinegar, water, and EOs? I know it probs smells better.
Also, what is the other “base” besides water and EOs. I checked the ingredients list, but I don’t know what all that stuff is. Does it compare to vinegar, alcohol, or Castile soap?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This would be something we would encourage our customers to test to compare as it would simply come down to personal preference. Some do prefer to create their own cleaning blends or recipes that work great! With our Hard Surface Cleaner, the goal is to incorporate all natural and effective ingredients to allow for a convenient cleaning experience.
