InVinceable All-Purpose Cleaner Reviews
Review of InVinceable, an As Seen on TV all-in-one cleaner. Does it actually work? Consumers speak out.
This “powerful multi-purpose stain remover” is pitched by – and named after – the ShamWow pitchman known as Vince Offer (whose real name is Offer Schlomi). InVinceable was originally marketed in September 2013, and was seen at the time as a comeback of sorts for the pitchman, who had found himself in legal trouble not long after his ShamWow fame. Vince claims to have invented this product himself. As of May 2015, InVinceable has been advertising regularly on fringe cable channels.
The official product website is at invinceable.com.
Cost & Availability
When ordering from the product website, InVinceable costs $10 plus $6.95 shipping. Keep in mind that it is only sold in “double sets” so you will be paying shipping x2, for a total order price of $23.90, which is enough to make 4 bottles of cleaner. There is a 30-day money back guarantee, but that does not include shipping. If you order from the product website, your wait time is expected to be 2 to 3 weeks.
You can find InVinceable in stores such as Bed Bath and Beyond for about $10. Although the website claims that this offer is not in stores, they are referring to the offer, not the product itself.
Claims & Features

- Indoor or outdoor use
- No chemical bleaches
- “Any Angle” spray bottle allows spraying from any angle
The commercial below has been airing as of May 2015.
InVinceable Cleaner Reviews
Miracle cleaners have been a mainstay of As Seen on TV advertisements, perhaps because they are inexpensive to produce, and the results are so subjective. In the case of InVinceable, there are scenes that seem impossible to duplicate, such as when Vince sprays stains which completely disappear before our eyes – an effect which has not been duplicated by myself and other reviewers.
InVinceable is not sold as a liquid, but as a pouch containing a dissolvable powder, which is to be mixed with water. Originally it was marketed as a tablet. The main ingredient is said to be sodium percabonate. You get four pouches, which can deliver 8 uses if you only use half a pouch at a time (which is recommended for general cleaning).
I did find that in some circumstances, InVinceable worked quite well, such as cleaning dirty stucco or painted walls. In one section of wall with significant dirt, a few sprays of InVinceable and only gentle wiping were required to restore it back to its original color.
In my evaluation of the product, I noted the following caveats:
- InVinceable only has a 6 to 8 hour life, so it’s not something you can mix and store away for continued use.
- The effectiveness of InVinceable was greatly affected by the type and age of the stain.
- Although the commercial shows stains magically disappearing, I found that it took some scrubbing to make a dent in them.
- The bottle works as advertised, and can be used upside down, though there is an air vent which tended to leak cleaner all over my hands
- On Amazon, InVinceable has a lukewarm 2.9 rating.
- Reviews around the internet are mixed. Take this extensive review, which found the spray “barely” worked on ceiling tiles, did not eliminate stains on grout, but did perform well on carpet.
- CTV News reviewed InVinceable. Hot sauce and mustard were applied to a shirt that was then treated with InVinceable, and the product did not perform as shown in the commercial. Their in-studio demonstration of lipstick applied to a shirt also failed. “It worked really really well on carpet… it does not appear to work on fabric,” it was concluded.
Watch my full review of InVinceable below.
There are numerous all-purpose cleaners on the market. Those by Green Works, 409, and Simple Green are highly rated and have extensive customer track records. My Cleaning Secret is another As Seen on TV cleaner we have encountered in recent months.
InVinceable all-purpose cleaner has been advertised on and off since late 2013. It marked the return of pitchman Vince Offer to the airwaves after a highly-publicized legal incident. The product, however, has been met with mixed reviews, which I think is because results seem to vary depending on how and where it is used. It seems that the product is best suited to carpet stains and cleaning walls. The design of the bottle, however, seems to have impressed many consumers, although mine tended to leak while upside down.
