Our Instagone Pro Review
In our tests of Instagone Pro we found that it ranked as a mid-level cleaner, more effective on some stains than others. In comparison to our experience, the television commercial’s representation of stains disappearing in seconds look like camera trickery, as we did not experience such dramatic visual results.
Although we didn’t find that stains disappeared without scrubbing, we did find that Instagone Pro worked well on water and carpet stains. Not all stain types were completely removed, it worked on par with higher-end commercially-available products. That said, the cost of Instagone Pro ranks it as one of the more expensive stain removers on the market.
It isn’t clear what advantage Instagone Pro has over the original Instagone. Curiously, the website for the original Instagone (instagone.com) does not mention Instagone Pro at all.
Amazon customers give Instagone Pro 3 out of 5 stars as of July 2014, with nearly equal 5-star and 1-star reviews.
Due to its ingredients, Instagone Pro may be a “multi-purpose” cleaner, but it certainly isn’t an “all-purpose” cleaner. Its purpose is to remove stains, and it is not meant to be used for general cleaning, such as dusting or cleaning some fabrics.
While the ingredients for Instagone Pro are not listed on the packaging, you can find them on this safety data sheet. The product is described as a “hypochlorite mixture” with the highest percentage listed as calcium hypochlorite. This is typically used to sanitize water, bleaching cotton, or in common disinfectant sprays or cleaners.
Even without looking at that sheet, one may infer the ingredients by looking at the types of stains for which it is said to be effective. The packaging notes that Instagone Pro is good for mold, mildew, soot, water stains, and nicotine. These are typically targeted by cleaners containing bleach.
Instagone Pro is a moderately effective stain cleaner, which uses common ingredients found in many household cleaners. We’re not sure if it’s worth the high cost and shipping delays, when other similar stain cleaners can be obtained locally for the same cost or less.
