    How we test

    Our cleaning score is a measure of how well the cleaner removes soft soap scum. We clean a tile that’s had soft soap scum baked on, and measure light reflectance before and after scrubbing to assess cleanliness. Find out more about how we test bathroom cleaners.

      From the BEST to the WORST in one product update.

      Pros

      The OLD version with Sulfamic Acid 62.4g/L was an amazing shower cleaner that removed water spots, soap scum and mould with total ease and speed from the walls, base and, most importantly, the glass!
      A 12 year old acrylic lined shower in my place still looks brand new thanks to the old Bam.
      Alas, no more.

      Cons

      The new version with Formic Acid BUT without Sulfamic is no better than a mediocre general surface cleaner. Why they changed has NEVER been explained by the makers or suppliers yet is roundly criticised and commented on in user reviews online.

      Recommend it?

      No, this product has too many drawbacks.
