Is Dr. Clean Spray Legit? Our Analysis


We all know the famous Mr. Clean, but what about Dr. Clean?

If you’ve seen ads for the seemingly magical Dr. Clean spray lately, you might be wondering if it works as well as it seems to in their marketing campaigns.

Should you give it a shot? Don’t pull the trigger just yet, keep reading our review on this brand to see what we found during our research. Plus, scroll down to read 20+ comments on this post from people who have bought this product and had bad experiences.

The Quick Answer:

What is Dr. Clean?

Dr. Clean is an all-around cleaning product that comes in tablets. You simply drop a tablet in the bottle, add water, and then start spraying.

They state that it can be used for almost every purpose, from clothing stains to every household cleaning use you could think of.

On the website, they also say it has a 90-day guarantee.

The photos on their website also make the product seem like a cleaning miracle, such as this before and after photo of an oven:

Dr. Clean Spray Reviews

Our Verdit: Do not buy this product

After searching the web for Dr. Clean spry reviews, we initially struggled to find genuine reviews online from legitimate customers. Of course, they have plenty of 5-star reviews on their own website, but we never trust these.

The first red flag is the fact that you can only find the Dr. Clean spray for sale on their website, which is essentially a landing page someone designed real quick. It’s not available on Amazon or any other reputable retailer (at least not under the Dr. Clean brand name).

However, we found a lot more when we searched the name on the bottle we saw in their Google ad labeled “V Clean Spot.”

The first ad is from Dr. Clean

A ton of results came up for “V Clean Spot” spray, including an Aliexpress listing. This seems to be a cheap cleaning product from China that many sellers buy and resell for higher prices.

On their website (or should we say landing page), they have changed the photo to a different label, but the photo on the Google ad we saw still had the V Spot label on the bottle.

There are also a few listings of the same V Spot product on Amazon and reviews are bad. This listing has a 3-star overall rating from 572 reviews, but many of the good reviews look fake. This product also has a 3-star average review.

The most helpful reviews are all 1-star reviews, most customers state the product didn’t work at all.

Aside from this, we also found out that “Dr. Clean” actually changes its website name in order to hide previous negative reviews.

At PissedConsumer, there are 104 bad reviews surrounding “” which directs to the same landing page. However, when doing our initial research, we didn’t find this other website.

Dr. Clean is currently paying for ads that direct to their new “” page so that customers have a more difficult time finding these negative reviews. There was no evidence of this other page until we came across it on PissedConsumer.

Because of all of the reasons above, we do not recommend buying Dr. Clean spray. It’s a complete scam. All reviews state this product doesn’t work at all or that they never even received the product, not to mention Dr. Clean has very scammy and suspicious business practices.

If you still want to give it a shot for some reason, you might as well buy the same product for way cheaper on Aliexpress and wait a month or two for it to arrive.

Bottom Line

Overall, Dr. Clean Spray seems to be a scam. Someone bought this product off Aliexpress or a similar overseas wholesale website, then created a landing page and is running ads trying to resell the product at much higher prices.

Their website is riddled with fake reviews as well as fake before and after photos that make the product seem like magic. There are over a hundred angry customers at PissedConsumer and Dr. Clean tries to change their URL to cover these reviews up.

If you buy from Dr. Clean, it won’t be effective (if they even send your order).

You’ll want to stick with Mr. Clean, or go for another all-purpose cleaning spray you can trust. Don’t waste your money!

Dr. Clean Spray Alternatives

That said, we do love the idea of more eco-friendly cleaning products that are also effective, so here are some alternatives you might want to try instead.

  • Blueland: Their products are tablet-based, non-toxic, and effective for many customers. They also have an excellent return policy in case they don’t work out for you. Read our full review if you’re interested!
  • Supernatural: Another eco-friendly and non-toxic cleaning brand that helps minimize waste, but they use concentrates instead of tablets.
  • Simple Green All-Purpose Cleaner: If you’re not worried about toxicity or products being more eco-friendly, people love Simple Green as an all-purpose cleaner.

  1. I ordered this product, because of the before and after pics. I have never received the product. It’s been 2 months. This review was 100 percent accurate. My loss. No contact available with the seller. Beware!!

  2. Major scam!! How they lied. I called to return it and have to pay postage both ways. She said they paid about $10 ti send it to me. I can keep it and they will credit me for 20.But do I believe them? I paid $40 for useless stuff.
    Not only this, but the stuff is a terrible cleaner. I tried it on my stove top and all it did was streak the glass.

  3. Thank you for posting this review. I was looking around online trying to find out more about this Dr Clean because for some reason it felt Scamy to me, especially the pictures of before and after, not realistic looking at all. Again, thank you!!!!!!

  4. This product does not work. It is a scam. The tablets would hardly dissolve. I put 2 tablets in a spray bottle and nothing. The 90 day money back guarantee is a joke as well. They do not provide a return address nor is there a customer service #. Do not get conned in on this product.

  5. Total waste of money! Does nothing whatsoever. Might as well use plain water. Just got it in the mail and now have to deal with returning this crap!

  6. I would have gotten better cleaning power from a Tums, this product doesn’t work at all. Unfortunately I didn’t see the real reviews until after I purchased this scam product, their website is overflowing with fake reviews.

  7. Got my “product” and mixed according to instructions. Followed the directions and sprayed the product on the bottom and sides of my fairly new fry pan, started scrubbing, and scrubbing, and scrubbing. Long story short, nothing happened. Sides and bottom are still stained with no apparent signs of coming off. I called customer support to see if I was doing something wrong? Girl I spoke with didn’t offer any solutions just a 50% return of my money. It’s like they know the product is JUNK.

    User’s recommendation: Stay away, far, far away!

  8. What a joke! Does not work on ANYTHING! Well, maybe mirrors and glass. But I can get the same result with hot water and white vinegar. DON’T WASTE YOUR MONEY

  9. C’est une arnaque! J’ai commandé et refusé le produit. Depuis fin mai je réclame le remboursement. Plus de réponse.

  10. Ditto for every negative review listed here. This product is useless and a scam for $20 or any amount. I bought it several months ago, have tried to use it in various ways, and have gotten angrier and angrier. Then it’s difficult to find these ” real reviews. ” It took me a few minutes to war through all the bs and wild goose chases you are sent on when trying to find the reviews. Save your $$$. Don’t buy this product.

  11. I, too, purchased this “miracle cleaner”. I’m old enough that I should have known better. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably IS too good to be true!

    I will not go through the motions to return it (although I do have a number to call) as I will then be out more effort and postage and will probably not get my refund as they have no reputation to uphold. I wish I would have checked into these comments first…..

  12. I’m so glad I did research on Dr. Clean. I saved myself a big Hassel. Apparently the product doesn’t work as advertised. Getting a refund is a ripoff. You have to pay for shipping and it cost almost as much for the cleaner. Stir clear. It’s a big scam.

  13. Thank you for this review. You have saved me money because I came across it before I bought. I always like to do a search of reviews after being caught in the past.

  14. This product is a total fraud. I might as well have flushed my money right down the toilet. I put a tablet in the bottle of liquid (probably water) and it took a very long time to dissolve. I finally had to crush it myself. Then I sprayed it on two different pans that were caked with old, dark grease. NOTHING happened. I tried it over and over and I may as well have been using plain water, for all the good it did. As we all know: IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT IS!

  15. I am 81 year’s old with 2 bad shoulders so needed something that would work fairly well. Bought this despite the negative reviews. This product works well if used properly. You need a little ELBOW GREASE to get the oven clean. TOTALLY mix the tablet in the spray bottle. It takes a while to completely disolve Just keep shaking it till it does. Did the oven door first to see if this would work well. It did so I removed my oven door (simple task) for good access to the oven. Spray on & let it sit for a few minutes. Then wipe with a SHOP TOWEL. After getting a lot off with the shop towel I sprayed again & let sit for a few minutes. Here comes the part that requires a little elbow grease. I used a Steel Wool Scrubber Pad made by OVWO (they come in a pack of 12). I use these to clean all my stainless steel pot’s & pan’s as well as my BBQ grill grid’s. They are a thousand % better than steel wool pad’s. When I finished my oven was back to close to a new look. Oh yes an additional feature is DR Clean has no odor to it.

  16. These comments are amazing. All saying this product doesn’t work.
    I purchased it to clean my oven. I hadn’t used it yet, but my cleaning lady grabbed it and cleaned my bathrooms. The shower stall was yellow from my water which has iron in it. It is white now. She wants to purchase some for her business. She says it is f—-ing awesome stuff! Maybe this is the exception. I can only tell you what I see. I haven’t used it for my oven yet.

  17. Sorry I didn’t see the comments above before ordering. I also found an “F” rating on Better Business Bureau. Unfortunately, I received product today but will be returning, hopefully for a refund. Not sure how much I will receive as per various comments. Will also report to my Visa f I don’t get refund. Will post how handled when I have an answer.

  18. If only I had seen this before I ordered. I had a kettle that had black grime on it that I was saving to see if it worked. Nothing happened to the kettle. It was still dark and dirty on the bottom and in the inside .needless to say ,I was not a happy camper now. There’s another spray advertised that looks like the same stuff but it’s supposed to be very wonderful. Does anyone know if that works? I have yet to call for my money back, but I paid too much not to! Stay tuned.

  19. Unfortunately the product is BULL S**T I don’t understand why the company is selling it and they know that it doesn’t work WHY.

  20. My favorite is the shower before and after photos. If you look closely it’s not the same shower in both pictures. Should have done a better job of picking photos.
