This stuff is amazing! Garret sent me a sample with my last order and I am in love. I just used it to clean my Breville One touch, Timolino Thermos, a plastic ice tea pitcher and a frequently used white tea cup. All from the one sample.

It was super easy. I just followed the instructions and was shocked. No scrubbing needed and they’re all sparkling clean.

I’m definitely buying more when I get a chance. I haven’t seen my Breville this clean since the day I bought it. to clean

Agreed – I love this stuff. I have white counter tops, it takes all kinds of stains off that too.

What’s the best way to use it on counter tops? I have a rather tea stained portion of mine by the kettle and I need to get it in better shape.

Honestly – when I’m cleaning teaware I just let it “overflow” the top of the cup or whatever I’m cleaning. The bubbles usually explode up the sides of the vessel, I just let than spill over the top (I’m pretty careful to just let some overspill and not LOTS). I just let that sit for a couple of minutes on the counter top then wipe it up. Normally that takes most of the stains off the counter.
I used to have a really annoying beet stain that I couldn’t get off – for that one I just put a little of the powder on the counter and dripped a bit of hot water onto it to make a loose paste let that sit for about 10 minutes – wiped it off and stain GONE… It’s awesome stuff…

Yes!! Our first review on the Smart Soak! I consider this stuff a bit of a miracle. It has taken some seriously messed up tea gear and made them new again – in shop, at home and for many many customers.

I use it to keep my granite tea table at our sampling bar all shiny and tea stain free once a week in store. What a wonder.

Thanks for being the first to review this stuff. I hope others will appreciate the Smart Soak as much as you, me and Dex :)

Keep in mind that if you have hard water stains/calcium/lime deposits that this will not do it. You’d need to use our Water Heater cleaner for that. That’s how we keep all our Zojirushi water heaters and gongfu kettles free of calcium and hard water stains.

Grateful,
Garret

Bio

I’m a long time tea addict since my british grandma started me on english breakfast tea as a toddler.

Since then I’ve branched out substantially. Right now I’m a big oolong fan. I love high mountain oolongs most but any high quality oolong is a treat.

Flavor wise I love vanilla and chocolate as well as stone fruits, whether they occur naturally or as flavorings. My tea stash is pretty much split 50/50 flavored and unflavored.

Oh and coconut! I’m constantly in search of the perfect coconut tea. If you have one or know one shoot me a message cause I’d love to know.

I love reading and knitting. They are my two other addictions besides tea. I think one can never really have too much tea, yarn, or books.
