YOKUU is a revolutionary cleaning agent based on good bacteria and actually works like the bacterial “cleaners” in nature. You dissolve a pearl in a spray bottle to make your own low-waste cleaning agent. Sounds good, but does it work? Five testers tried it out for us.

Julie: “I use YOKUU daily to clean the counter and table.”

Very happy to get to know this product! In the beginning, had to get used to how to use the product. How much product/spray for the right effect. Because it is a water-like product, you only see a mist; it does not look like typical cleaning products. It also does not foam when used, so pay close attention to where you have or have not cleaned. I liked the fact that it doesn’t have a chemical smell. Easy to use, the quality of the material is very solid, the bottle will certainly last for a long time. The product can be filled or reconstituted quickly, no complicated process. Great added value that it is a more environmentally conscious product. It also made me feel safer using this in places where small children are present. I quickly took it out every day to quickly clean my counter and dining table. The product is definitely a keeper!

Ease of use rating: 5/5 

Convenient to use. Easy to (re-)fill it. Solid material canister and nozzle.

Score for effect: 4/5 

Easy to clean, surfaces quickly look neat. At first difficult to estimate how much you should use because it does not resemble the typical cleaning products (liquid, colour and does not foam)

Overall score: 4/5 

Very nice product without a strong, typical cleaning odour. Good performance of the product (not yet tested on extremely dirty surfaces or stubborn stains). Handy to quickly clean the kitchen and table.

Pros

  • No typical strong cleaning smell
  • Convenient to use
  • Quick to fill
  • High-quality spray can and spray head

Cons

  • In the beginning, unclear how much to use, how much to spray.
  • Not a typical foaming product.
  • Have to get used to using it.

Anneleen: “So handy to clean your entire house with 1 bottle.”

I was very curious about how YOKUU works. A product to which you only add tap water and a capsule, curious about how this product works. As soon as I received the product I got to work. I tested it all over the house and on all possible surfaces. The biggest advantage is that YOKUU works for many surfaces: stove, bathroom, kitchen cabinets, countertops… Handy for cleaning your entire house with 1 bottle. It is a very easy bottle where you spray the product via the handle. The scent is also very neutral. But I think the biggest advantage is that you contribute to a cleaner world by bringing this Belgian product into your home: no waste, water pollution and good for people, children and nature. With both our little sprout and our cat around, I had no concerns about a hazard from a multi-purpose cleaner.

Ease of use rating: 4/5 

Handy bottle to use. You can easily open and close the bottle for filling. The handle is also flexible, making it easy to spray large surfaces.

Score for effect: 4/5 

Very enthusiastic about how the product works. The product works on different surfaces such as the stove, wooden cabinets, shower… I sprayed the product over the surface and depending on the dirt (such as grease stains), I let it sit for a while. After that, it was easy to remove with a damp cloth.

Overall score: 4/5 

I was very curious about how YOKUU works. After testing I am a fan! It is a Belgian product with which you can contribute to nature.

Pros

  • Belgian
  • No water pollution
  • No waste
  • Neutral scent
  • Safe to use for children and animals
  • Works on many different surfaces

Nele: “The bottle sits well in the hand and atomizes nicely.”

I was pleasantly surprised by the compactness of the starter kit: 1 refillable bottle and 5 YOKUU pearls. A compact box that will last you for a long time. While cleaning, I tested the product everywhere (living room, toilet, kitchen, bathroom…). However, it is not sufficient for stubborn dirt (such as limescale and fingerprints). It is a pleasant product for cleaning surfaces (kitchen cabinets, dining table, chairs, TV cabinet, changing table, sink, doors…). The bottle is easy to hold and atomizes nicely. It has a neutral scent. I plan to continue using it (for the surfaces) as it does reduce my personal footprint. The advantage is also that you can use it for a very long time and therefore do not have to carry bottles from the store periodically. It is practical and compact. It also produces no waste and takes up little space.

Ease of use rating: 5/5 

The bottle is easy to hold. When you spray you have a nice atomization.

Score for effect: 3/5 

A 3 because it is not sufficient for stubborn dirt and you still need more aggressive products for this.

Overall score: 4/5 

Pleasant product, neutral smell, easy to use.

Pros

  • Environmentally friendly,
  • Compact
  • Pleasant scent

Cons

  • Not suitable for limescale, grease spots and fingerprints.

Bo: “Absolutely a keeper in our household!”

Immediately after receipt, tested immediately! I started working on the hob and extractor hood, which normally have dust and grease on them a few hours later. With YOKUU, my extractor hood was still shining the next day! Amazing! Would this also work for the smell of dog urine on bankirai? Yes of course! And the bad smells in the toilet? Those as well! Kitchen cabinets, table cleaning, car interior, countertops, carpet, seat? Everything is now much cleaner than ever thanks to YOKUU’s good bacteria. It also smells nice, and the spray is super convenient to use. I have often wondered how I could replace the many plastic bottles for anything and everything… But now I have discovered YOKUU! The result? An empty cupboard, no more chemical odours, less cleaning, no more dragging buckets,… YOKUU, a Belgian company with a heart for nature, people and the planet. A keeper in our household!

Ease of use rating: 5/5 

Take water, put the “droplet” in, wait and ready to use. It couldn’t be easier! The spray has a very fine mist. Not too much, not too little.

Score for effect: 5/5 

The good thing is that the spray not only works when used, it continues to work!

Overall score: 5/5 

Pros

  • Easy
  • Less waste
  • Less plastic
  • No more chemicals
  • Pleasant smell
  • Fine misting

Dalida: “This is a kind of ‘slow cleaning’. The results are astounding.”

I put YOKUU to the toughest test there is I think. A house in renovation mode. Just plastered, carpenter still busy, and so on. And as a bonus 2 sticky toddlers who really don’t listen when you tell them to wash their hands before they grab everything. And I am absolutely surprised. When I sprayed it for the first time I literally thought, this can’t be anything. Such a fine layer of “water”. But nothing could be further from the truth. After soaking in for some time, the result is really amazing. It feels a bit like slow cleaning, which suddenly turns it into a moment.

We thought it was a good idea to use a lot of white in our interior. With 2 toddlers who prefer shabby chic, with an emphasis on shabby. On the left photo above you can see our refrigerator: on the left cleaned with YOKUU, on the right the “front”. We can also clean our white radio tower every day. With YOKUU, that is no problem at all. Our children are also real artists, who do not shy away from experimental materials. Such as kitchen chairs (see the photo above). The YOKUU was also released on this, with a very satisfying result. Phew!

Ease of use rating: 4/5 

Very handy spray can. You have to be patient before the pearl is dissolved. And also give YOKUU time to soak in.

Score for effect: 5/5 

The most amazing thing was the refrigerator. Used by workmen in the heat of battle and toddlers with sticky hands and God knows who else. And above all, far too long not cleaned by the undersigned, who simply did not see the point. See photo: this scandalously treated refrigerator is no problem for YOKUU. It got clean without hard scrubbing or elbow grease. And that last part was the best. The soaking in does the job for you.

Overall score: 5/5 

Pros

  • Thanks to the soaking in, you have to work less hard yourself.
  • Very pleasant aerosol/nebulizer.
  • The bubbles in the bottle are also unique.

Cons

  • You have to have patience. The pearl has to dissolve for a while. Let the product really soak in. Then it works best. But then it’s zen cleaning. Which isn’t really a drawback.
  • The scent is very subtle, which is a shame, because I do like the fresh, just cleaned scent.

The verdict

  • Score ease of use: 9/10 
  • Score for effect: 8.5/10 
  • Overall score: 9/10 

The testers are delighted with YOKUU. The fact that it is ecologically responsible is the greatest added value, but it is also simply an astonishingly good cleaning product. It is easy to make and fill, and the spray bottle is easy to use. Then it’s a matter of spraying and being patient, so that the bacteria can do their job. One of the testers thinks it’s just not powerful enough for stubborn dirt, but the others, who also subjected their YOKUU to tough tests, think it’s just that. One tester finds it nice that it has no smell and the other finds it a pity. Smell is therefore something very personal. Because it cleans so well, it does take away bad odours, and of course nobody has anything against that.
