Miracle orange cleaner

After more than 15 years of wear and tear, Vicki Lewis’s kitchen cabinets and exterior oak door had had enough. Moisture damage from the dishwasher and coffee pot had turned her cabinet surfaces white. Her beautiful door was damaged from the sun and outside temperatures. She didn’t know what to do, so she picked up the phone and called a local contractor to get an estimate on replacing her cabinets and refinishing the exterior door.

“I was shocked by what he said. The cost was exorbitant!” said Lewis, founder and owner of A Touch of Oranges. “So I sought another bid, and then another. As my discouragement mounted, I started to think that there just had to be another way to make my wood look nice again without the high cost of refinishing.”

Lewis began searching for a product that would clean, moisturize, and renew her cabinets. When she couldn’t find one, she decided to try to make one herself. Lewis immersed herself in the world of chemistry, looking to create a product that would make her cabinets look new again without leaving behind any oil or build-up and make the newness last. And she did.

After several tries, Lewis created A Touch of Oranges Wood Cleaner and Touch of Beeswax Wood Preserver. She also more recently created Bring It On Glass, Mirror, and Hard Surface Cleaner and Polish, a product she says will replace dozens of cleaning products in your home.

“We’ve gone worldwide with Bring It On cleaner this last year. We even supply the New York City Transit with Bring It On for cleaning New York City bus windows,” said Lewis. “This product is an all-in-one cleaner and polish that is film-free, anti-fog, non-streaking, and ammonia- and alcohol-free. With this and our wood cleaner, customers are able to clean everything from their shower doors to their wood floors to their granite counters and so much more. And it’s easy!”
