More articles: Cleaning Products Reviews
Amway is known for its products and also as a pioneer in direct marketing. The article provides sufficient details about the products. The problem with Amway products is that they are too costly. The company claims that their products will last longer if used as per their guidelines but I am not sure how practical that would be. Recently raids were conducted in the Amway offices in Kerala and their functioning has been suspended on the ground that they were encouraging money chain business in the name of direct marketing and also that they were not maintaining proper registers or accounts. Other parts of India may follow suit.
Among all the cleaning articles of Amway I have found their Glistner tooth paste and their tooth brushes to be of utmost quality and I regularly use these two products. The only problem with the Amway products is that these items are sold only by the registered distributors of the Amway. They are not available off the shelf in any grocery or chemist shop. The Amway claims that it sells its articles through its distributors in order to reduce the cost of the products by passing wholesalers and retailers' commissions. But if you look at the cost of the products of the Amway, they are very highly priced among all the products of similar type available in the market. So, if you want to buy the Amway products, you have to search for its distributor and then buy them at the cost which is quite high. The plea of the Amway for the high cost of products is that their products are unique in the market and are of exceptionally high quality.
This is a good article which gives an idea about the main products. Personally, I have used LOC (multipurpose cleaning product), Glister Paste and Persona Soap.
1) LOC is a very good product and never seen a product like this that removes stains and cleans the surface without damaging the surface.
2) Glister paste is good and I could not compare it with the other good brands.
3) Persona is one of the best soaps available in the market. It can be compared with a product called Conybio.
However, Amyway is far superior to many well known brands and no can say it is the only best brand.
