6 Ways I Clean Our Home With Pine Gel

Growing up I used to see from time to time my grandmother buy Pine Gel and I didn’t quite grasp what the hype was all about until I started using it in our home, now I get it. It’s a versatile product. I think it’s one of those products that you wish every home could have. It has made it to the top 5 list of my favorite versatile cleaning products. I have been using the Sunlight Pine Gel and here’s what I have been using it for in our home.

What I love about Pine Gel

  • It’s not abrasive but tackles stains with ease
  • It does not only clean but also Disinfect and Deodorize

So what do I use Pine Gel for:

It works well on a variety of floor surfaces; tiles, wood floors, laminated wood, carpet, upholstery, and concrete.

Trust Pine Gel to leave your kitchen shining and smelling fresh. It can be used to clean counters, tables, sinks, stoves, range hoods, walls, over racks, stainless steel, and pots. For any food stains on countertops, I like to use dilute it undiluted. Rub a little bit on the surface, leave for 5 minutes and then rinse and wipe with a cloth.

I’m currently doing a 20-day clean kitchen sink challenge and I used pine gel to reward our sink for all the hard work I put it through every day. I love that it keeps my sink clean and smelling fresh. To Use, I diluted 1/4 teaspoon of Pine Gel with 2 cups of warm water. Using a sponge or brush, clean, rinse and wipe the sink.


Yep, you read that right. Pine Gel is suitable to use on fabrics as a tough stain remover.  For any tough stains on your clothing, mix a teaspoon of Pine Gel and a cup of water; apply to the stain, wash, and rinse. Some tough stains may require you to use the Pine Gel undiluted.
