The truth about Dollar Tree’s $1 cleaner

Bargain hunters at Dollar Tree and Dollar General know that some items are worth far more than the $1 price tag. LA’s Totally Awesome Cleaner sets big expectations with its name, but according to many of its users, it really is totally awesome. The bottle claims the cleaner is effective for removing everything from blood, to gum, to hair dye, and it can be found both at Dollar Tree and Dollar General. For the most part, LA’s Totally Awesome Cleaner seems just as good as its fans claim — that is, if you don’t have a sensitive nose.

Dollar Tree’s website attracted plenty of five star reviews, including from users who claim the cleaner worked on “dirty farm clothes,” and oily engines. If you want to watch the cleaner in action, there are dozens of YouTube videos where users try Totally Awesome on their own tough stains. Watching dirt drip off DT’s tires after just a few sprays is pretty satisfying. If you’re skeptical that the cleaner works on fabric, watch YouTuber 505BOSE use a scrub brush to get stains out of car seats. While the stains required a little more scrubbing work, the final results are impressive, and most of the visible stains wipe right off.

Be careful ordering LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner online or if you have a sensitive nose

LA’s Totally Awesome Cleaner is available online at multiple websites. However, several reviewers on Dollar General’s website complained their bottles were damaged by improper shipping. “I appreciate DG and I look forward to using the product, but sadly it wasn’t packed properly and arrived damaged,” one reviewer said. Other online retailers mark up the price. One Amazon reviewer said, “I bought this to clean my Cricut mats. It’s fantastic!…But then I found it [at] 2 different dollar stores!!!!…I do recommend this product 100 percent but not at this price on Amazon.”

LA’s Totally Awesome Cleaner has a few other downsides. Since it comes in concentrated form, you’ll need to water it down before use (via Motivated Moms). It’s not a dealbreaker, but it does add an extra step. People who are sensitive to smell should also be aware that several reviewers on Influenster complained that the cleaner smelled really intense. One reviewer said, “It works great — the smell is the only thing that would keep me from buying it.” Still, with the price set at just $1, it’s hard to get more bang for your buck from a cleaning product.
