How Clean Is Your House star Kim Woodburn launched a range of household products with Poundland and we had to try them. When I was younger, Kim and Aggie Mackenzie were my cleaning idols, so when I saw a huge poster outside Poundland featuring Kim’s face and products, I couldn’t resist.
When I visited Poundland on Royal Parade, there was a section at the back of the shop where you could find everything Kim, including bright pink patterned gloves. There was a wide variety of products on the shelves, from cleaning supplies to feather dusters.
Another huge bonus was that everything was priced at a pound or slightly more, which made this cleaning workshop affordable. In total I spent around £10 on all the products I bought which are excellent value for money, especially after putting the range through its paces. In addition, all products are vegan.

I could have picked up a lot more but being a fan I thought about what I needed at home – and sadly the big pink duster wasn’t one. I decided to buy a pair of pink gloves, an all-purpose cleaner, a bathroom cleaner, an all-purpose floor cleaner, a mold and mildew cleaner, a pack of four microfiber cloths and a brush dishes.
The first thing I did when I got home was put on Kim’s spectacular gloves to get a feel for what it’s like to be the “original cleaning queen” and I couldn’t wait to do the dishes, to mop the floor and to transform my cleaning routine.
Here are the Kim Woodburn home range products I reviewed from Poundland:
The multi-purpose cleaner with bleach (750ml)
Usually my all-purpose sprays were over £2 at some retailers, so when I saw this £1 lime and mint spray it came with me. While using the product I took a short video to see the before and after and throughout you can see the dirt lift off instantly.
Not only did it remove all the dirt from my kitchen counter, it left the room smelling fresh and fragrant. Mint and lime are a great combination that is used in most of Kim’s household products. I’ve used it for surfaces around my house and haven’t noticed any flaws.
Mold & Mildew Cleaner (750ml)
Other than my gloves, this has to be the best mold remover I’ve used. For a while, stubborn mildew stains started to appear – which pure bleach wouldn’t even remove. So when I saw the mold and mildew cleaner for £1 I thought it was worth it.
When I’ve researched mold removers in the past, you’re looking at £10-20 for a top rated product, which is usually pretty small. Now that I’ve tried and tested Kim’s Mildew Killer Spray, I won’t look back.
If you’re struggling with mold and looking for a product that works and gets rid of mold, head to Poundland because it’s brilliant. I had a bowl of hot water, a basic sponge and a rag to wipe up any excess water.
The label said to spray it on the area with mold, rub and wait fifteen minutes before drying with a cloth. I sprayed the area with a few squirts of mold and mildew cleaner and within seconds you could see it working.
I went over the area gently with a damp sponge and instantly it was gone. You can watch the video above to see how well it worked. The image below also shows the before and after.
It’s a 10/10 product.
Bathroom cleaner (750ml)
This £1 bathroom cleaner is scented with lime and mint, and like the multi-purpose spray, it leaves the room smelling fresh. I used this product to deep clean my bathroom where it was clear from the start – it already removed stubborn marks left by toiletries in just a few wipes.
I’ve used it on my bathroom sink, tub, windowsill, toilet, and tiles, all of which looked sparkling clean when finished. Even my partner was impressed with Kim’s product. Now I was really getting down to it and moving on to my next mission – floors.
All Purpose Floor Cleaner (1L)
In my house, there are only two hard floors. Anyway, they still need to be cleaned. Again, I’d spend over £2 for a decent floor cleaner – so when I saw a 1 liter bottle for £2 I thought this was a bargain. This also had a mint and lime scent, which made it the perfect product if you want to refresh yourself.
Not only does it smell amazing, but it is suitable for hard floors and surfaces and eliminates annoying footprints or mud. I gave the kitchen and bathroom a quick mop and could already see the difference. I would give this product a rating of 9/10.
Microfiber cloths (pack of 4) and H patternedhousehold gloves
Throughout my cleaning session with Kim Woodburn’s cleaning products, I used the cute long pink gloves and microfiber cloths to really get into the Kim spirit. The cloths were great and are machine washable and I will probably use the gloves forever, just because they look and feel good.
The Kim Woodburn collection is fabulous and works. All the products I have purchased and tested have exceeded my expectations and sometimes shocked me. What also made me fall in love with this range is that it is affordable. In the past when buying cleaning products I was looking at nearly £20 in total so getting all of this for £10.20 is money well spent.
Mildew and Mildew Killer Spray is the best product I’ve yet used to get rid of mold, so I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap hack. I even used it between tiles and within minutes it was removed. I am very happy with all of my products and will be back for more.
