The formulation of the Universal Cleaner is effective for 18 months.
How long does it last?
Our Universal Cleaner lasts for 2 months for a standard 2-3 bedroom home when used as an everyday cleaner in conjunction with the Koh cleaning system and Koh Spray Mop.
My bottle has stopped spraying
On very rare occasions, the Atomiser can become blocked due to the super fine mist sprayer. In most instances, this can be easily rectified. Take the head off the bottle, removing the straw. Once the straw is removed, submerge the head under some warm water and whilst underwater pull the trigger quickly to flush the system. After 30 seconds remove the head and reassemble. The Atomiser should now function. If this is not working, please get in touch with our Care Team via Facebook, Email
