What every best has:
The chief complaint of those who don't like Kaboom is that it smells terrible. Some also fail to see any difference in Kaboom's results compared to those of other cleaners, and they claim it does nothing for tougher stains.
About.com's guide to housekeeping tries out Kaboom and is happy with how it works, but doesn't think it's the best choice for extremely dirty surfaces. The Retro Housewife, a blog for housewives, is also pleased with as-seen-on-TV Kaboom and finds that it outperforms Scrubbing Bubbles in a side-by-side test. Several customers on Epinions.com give mixed reviews: some find that Kaboom works better than the alternatives, and others say it's no better than other cleaners and smells too bad to be used. Customer reviews on Drugstore.com are mostly positive, but the reviews on InfomercialRatings.com are mixed.
