No need to use.: Water does the same thing. Cranberry juice doesn't clean out your kidney any better than any other juice. There is still some banter and common use of cranberry juice for preventing or treating uti, but evidence for this is weak. As best i can see there is no benefit to juicing and there is certainly no need to use kidney cleaner.
