My fabulous Lavender Pine-Sol came in the mail squashed and 90% gone, but that's neither here nor there. I had plenty left to clean with. I still have lots left to clean with. It goes a long way. I cleaned some mildew type stains from between the shower tiles. Bleach would probably work best for mildew but this Pine-Sol chased it away just fine, too.
I love the smell of this stuff. I love the smell of real lavender. I HATE the smell of cloying fake candy scented "lavender". This smells real. It's a clean antiseptic smell (in a good way), in a real lavender way.
I don't know if this is real lavender, from real flowers. But they did a great job faking it if they did. There is not a SINGLE ONE real lavender smell in the world (my favorite was a Scottish Lavender soap I once had. It smelled like a dried alfalfa hay bale, but in a good way). But this lavender smell seems authentic to me. If it's fake, shame on me for liking it, I'm fussy about having to endure tacky things like cloying fake flower smells!
Lavender and cleaning have a long history. Ancient Roman soldiers took lavender on campaigns with them to dress wounds, and bathe (not because they merely wanted to be perfumed but it kept ring worm away and insect bites away, and stuff like that away from skin).
