Comet vs Ajax


Every now and then I'll put a little tip that involves spending time in the kitchen on my blog. Today I'll tell you about a little discovery that I made after 49 years of living and 28 years of married living. When I was growing up my mom always used Ajax to clean the kitchen sink. I did as most girls do, and when I got married I continued to use Ajax, just like my mama did. I even silently stuck my nose up to those who used Comet. Ajax was superior, in my opinion, and I just couldn't understand why anyone would scrub their sink with Comet.

Last week I spent some time with my friend, Super Walmart. By now you probably realize that Super Walmart and I are involved in a serious relationship. I was driven to the depth of despair last summer when I realized the grand opening of Super Walmart, which I had been looking forward to for months, was taking place while we were in Chicago attending my daughter's second wedding reception. For a few minutes I contemplated skipping the reception, knowing I had already attended the one here in So. Cal., but in the end the Super Walmart Grand Opening was trumped by a wedding reception on a beautiful lake in Libertyville, IL. Just to letcah know, I'm pretty sure I made the right decision.

Anywho, there I was in Super Walmart, on the cleaning aisle, when I discovered they were out of Ajax. Not good, considering I was also out of Ajax. After thoughtful consideration, I bent down and did something I had vowed years ago that I would never do...I picked up a container of Comet with bleach. I looked around to make sure no one was watching, buried it in my cart to make sure it couldn't be seen, and smuggled the contraband back to my kitchen.

I'm not a fan of being wrong, in fact, it's one of my least favorite things. So, it's with a humble heart that I tell you COMET with bleach ROCKS! It cleaned my sink so much better than Ajax ever did. My reaction was similar to that of Operation Desert Storm...shock and awe! I love a clean white sink, and thanks to Comet with Bleach, that's just what I've got. I also have to give thanks to my BFF, Super Walmart, for running low on that inferior product.

  1. I was just contemplating buying 4 cans of Ajax in a big sale, but I've always used Comet. So I may not buy it after all. Thanks!

  2. I use both. I believe Ajax is less abrasive than Comet - Comet cleans like a sand-blaster (WAY deeper than Ajax) but at a price - it wears away surfaces in time! Ajax claims "No Scratch Formula" (or something like that; Comet doesn't.
