Cost & Availability
If you purchase from the official website, you can get two tubs of Shadazzle and four cleaning pads for $9.95 plus $15.90 shipping (it is a buy-one-get-one with extra shipping offer) for a total of $25.85.
Shadazzle can be found online and in some stores such as Walmart for about $10 for one unit.
The TV commercial below was posted to YouTube in May 2015 has been airing as of this writing, July 2015.
Although Shadazzle has recently begun advertising on television, it has been around for at least 5 years, as evidenced by YouTube videos dating back to 2010. The original product website was shadazzlecleaner.com, which was registered back in 2010 and now forwards to the official product website at getshadazzle.com. According to a review posted on the product’s Facebook page, Shadazzle “has been around in France for a long time.”
Shadazzle comes in a dry form, and to use it you must wet the provided sponge, then apply to the desired surface. It can be used on a wide variety of household surfaces, from counters to pots to bathtubs. Because it can be used on such a wide array of surfaces, there are bound to be some areas which each consumer feels works better than others. In our tests, we found that Shadazzle worked best on silverware, ceramic surfaces, and stainless steel. The least effective use in our tests was grease on a stove top.
Perhaps one caveat for those who have seen the advertisements featuring pitchman Marc Gill is that it may not work as effortlessly as the advertising implies. Those one-wipe magical cleanups depicted on television are not realistic, which is unfortunate, as some consumers may be put off by the fact that Shadazzle does require a bit of elbow grease to work effectively. And we feel that it certainly is effective on a variety of surfaces.
There are a number of similar products which could be compared to Shadazzle. These include Quick N Brite, Astonish Cleaning Paste, Earth Brite, and OXO Brite. These products all boast relatively high ratings and range in price from around $10-$20. Shadazzle is certainly a worthy competitor against these, however. Another recently advertised product is My Cleaning Secret, which we have reviewed here.
Those who expect the product to live up to the hype of the advertising may be disappointed. Those with realistic expectations will mostly likely echo our sentiment that the product actually does a pretty good job. We’d buy this again.
We’d recommend purchasing locally to avoid shipping charges and delays.
