Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer {Review & Giveaway} Minimize Morning Madness $40 gift basket

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

If you asked me five years ago the first thought that slowly made its way into my head when I woke up on a Saturday morning (after I realized it was indeed the weekend), it would have centered around wondering what in the world my husband and I were going to do to fill the day. We would most likely have slept in late, the only things on our agenda being possible grocery shopping, a stroll around Target or catching up on the week's TV shows.

Nowadays, before my eyes are even open there are at least a dozen things that have popped into my mind and are racing around. Instead of my once-relaxed mornings and leisurely afternoons, I can't seem to find enough hours in the day to barely take a shower... let alone clean it. Fortunately, Scrubbing Bubbles has found a way for all of us busy moms (and dads) out there to cut down on the time we spend cleaning the bathroom with their new Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer.

This innovative, one-touch continuous sprayer utilizes an advanced formula of active cleaners, meaning they stay on your bathroom surfaces and continue to clean for up to 4 days after the initial spray. Without leaving any visible residue, a protective barrier stays behind that inhibits the buildup of dirt and works to keep your sink, shower, counter, etc. clean without you having to lift a finger.

Any product that allows me to clean without having to actually clean was truly designed for me. I liked the way that the Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer provided good coverage along my shower door and across my sink, as well as the pleasant citrus scent (it's strong, so if you don't like citrus, be prepared). Plus, even though I never really had an issue with any previous pump sprays, the feeling of power when using the continuous sprayer was pretty cool as well, even if it did make a sort of odd motorized noise when using it.

Although slightly difficult to tell from the pictures, the before and after of my bathroom sink really does show a marked difference when all I did was spray, wipe and rinse.

The shower doors were an even bigger improvement, as before I could barely see through them due to the soap scum and after they were shining and clear. Knowing that the Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer was going to help keep them that way longer made the extremely short amount of time I spent cleaning them even more worth it.

Now that Scrubbing Bubbles has helped "Minimize Morning Madness" by reducing the amount of time I might spend cleaning, they wanted to help out in a few other aspects as well. Wasn't that thoughtful of them?


This great prize basket includes the Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer, Starbucks Via coffee with a really cute Reinvent mug made from recycled clay, travel alarm clock and AquaNotes, a waterproof notepad. This really is a fun collection to help with multiple aspects of a crazy, multitasking morning. I mean really, have you ever written down your agenda while still in the shower? Now you can with AquaNotes!

Thanks to the generosity of SC Johnson, one lucky person will also get to Minimize Morning Madness with this great gift basket! ARV $40!

My most hectic is getting the three kids through breakfast, because they are picky eaters and so messy too!

My most hectic part of the morning is figuring out how to make breakfast for just one. I recently left my abusive boyfriend and his 2 sons, and this is, by far, the hardest decision I ever have had to make.

Honestly, the most hectic is the five minutes before we're supposed to leave. Inevitably, the cat gets out, we forgot something, etc.
