Travertine Cleaning and Kaboom Shower Tile and Grout Cleaner:
If you are becoming frustrated with the dirt and yuk build up on your once beautiful travertine floors you may be willing to try almost anything including Kaboom Shower, Tub & Tile Cleaner, made by Orange Glo. When you watch the commercials you can see the scum just melt away in seconds, but is this product safe to us on a natural stone like travertine?
Orange Glo Manufacturer has been around for quite sometime and sell such cleaning products as Orange Glo Furniture Polish, Oxi Clean Stain Fighter and of course Kaboom. I have to admit that I have used all three of these products with good success. I like the smell of Orange Glo when I polish my hard wood furniture and I routinely use Oxi Clean in my laundry.
A bottle of Kaboom Shower, Tub & Tile Cleaner is a composed of water and organic acid salts with grapefruit fragrance. The pH level of Kaboom is between .5 to 1.5 which makes it a strong acid. In fact if you read the label and their website they DO NOT recommend this product for natural stones of any kind. Organic Acid Salt is commonly used to break down water deposits and soap scum found in porcelain tile showers and bath tubs. If you were to use this product on a natural stone such as travertine you could permanently etch and damage the stone. NO ACID SHOULD EVER BE USED TO CLEAN NATURAL STONE!
