Magna Clean is a suite of cleaning products that are all supposed to be using the power of electromagnetism in order to help you clean. So does this really work or is it just a marketing ploy to try to get you to believe that you’re cleaning with magnetism.
Getting your home as clean as can be is getting easier and easier thanks to a rise in technology and a n3ew age of cleaning products that are designed to make the process more efficient, and more green. Several products on the market today sayy the times of using elbow grease and intense scrubbing are over, and now you can spend a relaxing afternoon going around and effortlessly cleaning your home.
The makers of Magna Clean say that their products attract dirt like a magnet, and that you’ll be able to clean all of your surfaces at once between the three different products they include in the set. They say their sweeper cleans dirty floors like a magnet, which we don’t typically associate magnets to cleaning floors, but the picture they’re trying to paint is that you won’t be pushing the dirt around, it will be drawn to the sweeper instead. They say it’s great for dog hair and even big messes like piles of dirt.
They say that it’s easy to clean off the cleaning utensils once you’re finished, so they’ll be ready for the next cleaning session. It’s important to note that they’re saying these retain that magnetic abilities after being washed, and over the long term.
There is an infomercial associated with these products that shows them in action, and makes it look like their magnetic capabilities actually make it easier to clean.
The cost of all there component of the Magna Clean cleaning system is $29 and gets you the sweeper, the cleaning cloth, and the duster as well as a telescoping accessory that allows you to clean out of the way spots. When you compare this cost to going out and buying three separate products you’ll see that it’s a bit over priced. There is a 30 day guarantee being offered, but it’s not likely that many will take them up on it since you’ll have to pay to ship back the products back and you’ll only get $15 of your $29 back.
These are presented as a way to make cleaning easier, saying that you won’t have to chase diert around, that it will come to you since you’ve got a magnetized cleaning surface.
The Magna Clean concept is a good one, but we were left wondering just how they are able to get it to be magnetized. We’re not really concerned with the duster, since we’ve seen dusters like this that are able to generate their own static electricity and therefore attract dust instead of simply send it into the air. But what about the sweeper and the scrubbing pad? It seems like they’d be a little less likely to be able to generate their own magnetism, at least to make any sort of difference in the way you’d clean. You’d likely still have to exert just as much pressure using the cleaning pad, and you’d have to sweep your floor just like normal in order to use these.
What they refer to as electromagnetism is displayed on camera as a static charge that attracts dust balls. You’ve probably seen this in action at some point, whenever there’s a static charge like this light things like dust bunnies tend to stick and be drawn to it.
Final Magna Clean Review
Magna Clean is getting our Risky Try rating. They are using a bit of hype by using the word electromagnetism when all they’ve really shown is the phenomenon of static electricity caused by some materials like those used in a duster. While the idea of making the dirt come to you may be appealing, when you think about it rationally it’s not really saving much time, energy, or effort on your part to have it move an inch or so, even if it did work exactly as advertised. It may be impressive in super slo-mo, but it’s not going to spell real world results, not enough to justify the high cost of the set.
There are plenty of proven winners when it comes to cleaning products, including sweepers that have stellar peer reviews, scrubbers that have the same, and dusters. Going with a gimmick like this in hopes that it revolutionizes the way you clean is a way to spend $30 on cleaning products you could have gotten for $20 or less. Because they’ve set up the pricing so that you can’t try these out without risking a minimum of $14 to $20 it just doesn’t make sense to give this a try.
