What are Jaws cleaners?
JAWS cleaning products have been around for quite a while and have been an original innovator in eco-friendly cleaning products and zero waste management. Jaws (short for Just Add Water Systems) believes in “not shipping water” and sells their products in small pods that you place into their patented spray bottles and add water. The spray bottles are designed to be used over and over again and have the potential to reduce plastic in landfills drastically.
How does Jaws work?
JAWS sells different kinds of starter kits that you can purchase which come with plastic bottles and pods. After you purchase the initial bottles and pods, then you can continue to just purchase the pods when you run out of cleaner. In all, there are 8 JAWS non-toxic cleaners. These include Kitchen, Glass, Hardwood, Shower, Disinfectant, Granite, Bathroom and Multipurpose. They also sell microfiber clothes and scouring pads. A product they do now sell in refillable pods is their Cream Cleanser, which is still eco-friendly and mildly abrasive for tough stains.
What are the benefits of using products like JAWS cleaning products?
JAWS cleaning products are safe for your family and the environment. They are made from biodegradable ingredients approved by the EPA Safer Choice Program which evaluates and determines certain ingredients to be safer than traditional chemical ingredients. These products are safe to use around children and pets.
The reduction in plastic is a big benefit from using JAWS products. JAWS eliminates millions of additional plastic bottles in our landfills and waterways. Single-use plastic accounts for almost 40% of our landfills. JAWS bottles are recyclable.
And just shipping the small pods also helps reduce your carbon footprint in shipping, fuel use and packaging.

Reviews of Jaws cleaning products
So I tried out JAWS’ Ultimate Cleaning Kit, plus a separate order for their Multi-Purpose Cleaner and Foaming Bathroom Cleaner (not sure why these aren’t included in the kit). The Ultimate kit includes:
- Six empty reusable bottles
- Six trigger sprayers
- Two refill pods each of our cleaning products: JAWS Glass Cleaner, Daily Shower Cleaner, Kitchen Degreaser, Floor Cleaner, Granite & Natural Stone Cleaner, and JAWS Disinfectant Cleaner.
- Seven 16″ x 16″ color-coded micro-fiber cloths for cleaning, scrubbing or polishing.
- Instruction manual
Overall I was very impressed with all of the JAWS cleaners. They work much better than some other non-toxic cleaners I have tried and they smell very good. This review includes the Kitchen, Shower, Disinfectant, and Glass. I will add the Multipurpose, Hardwood and Bathroom cleaners soon.
The Kitchen Cleaner had no problem cutting through the grease on the stove and making the microwave shine. What I like is that you can use it for your appliances without having to switch to a stainless steel cleaner. It transitioned from the glass to stainless steel seamlessly making them really shine like I haven’t seen in a while.

I was very happy with the shower cleaner. My shower tends to grow mold and mildew quickly and the glass doors accumulate a lot of soap scum. The JAWS Shower Cleaner cut through the soap scum without having to scrub hard. And I was very impressed that it got rid of the mold and mildew stains on the tile and grout without having bleach in it. It also made the fixtures shine! Word of caution, the spray scent is very strong. It is the only one I have noticed like that. It almost smells like grape Kool-Aid. But if you have an aversion to strong scents, this might not be for you.

JAWS Disinfectant Spray
I used the JAWS Disinfectant Spray on the toilet. It gets quite gunked up with the type of water we have. Yikes! It did pretty well.

Jaws Glass Cleaner
I was actually quite impressed with Jaws Glass Cleaner. I have a round glass coffee table that gets a lot of spills and cup rings. I sprayed the glass thoroughly and wiped it with some cheap paper towels to see how effective it was. It came out pristine with no streaks!

Are the bottles good quality?
Yes, the bottles the Jaws products come in are very sturdy. They are labeled very prominently so it is easy to read and it also has instructions on it. And you can see the colored solution in them so you can tell which cleaner is which. The sprayer seems to be made well. It has 3 different settings, On, Spray and Stream, which I like. The Blueland bottles do not have this and only spray in a mist. The spray handle also gets stuck on the Blueland bottles which gets extremely frustrating. These seem to work well, so far so good!
Pros and cons of Jaws cleaning products
- Easy to use
- Sturdy bottles
- Eco-friendly and non-toxic
- Nice scent
- Reduced carbon footprint and zero water
- Can’t save money using your own bottles and just the pods because of the dispensary method.
- The shower scent may be to strong for people with an aversion to fragrance
