"Formaldehyde-melamine-sodium bisulfite"

Its the sodium bisulfite (that is, a cousin of sodium carbonate - baking soda) that is doing the cleaning. Nothing magic about it.


I would be wary of anything that uses formaldehyde, but like most 'miracle cleaners' the old-fashioned remedies still work the best.

Here in Australia, we use Eucalyptus Oil - not only doesn't scratch, but leaves a great smell - one of it's uses is as a room freshener. Probably not available in the US ?
