As with most households, my husband and I have our individual chores around the house. He is in charge of emptying and taking out the garbage, snow removal, cleaning the bathrooms and killing bugs. I do the vacuuming, sweeping, mowing the lawn and the laundry.
Every once in a while there is crossover though, right? He'll be out of town and I'll have to bring the garbage out or stop being girly when I see a spider and sometimes if I'm busy and the floor under Little Sister B's high chair is particularly crunchy, my husband will vacuum. What never happens, however, is me cleaning the toilet.
I have to admit it, in the 6 1/2 years that we have lived in this house I have never cleaned the toilets. Never. Can you believe it? They're just the epitome of YUCK for me and that is one job that I have always left for my husband to do. I know, I'm lacking in the housewife department, but that's just the way it is.
So, you can imagine my husband's outright surprise when he found ME in the bathroom cleaning the toilet thanks to the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush 2-in-1.
The Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush 2-in-1 Starter Kit comes complete with everything you need to clean away any tough stains or quick touch-ups, all without ever having to actually touch anything more than the handle. Not only that, the assembly and use is simple enough that even someone like me who will do anything to avoid toilet cleaning won't be scared away.
After sliding the two pieces of the durable 19" handle together, all I had to do was use one button to "grab" a cleaning pad and I was ready to start scrubbing. I really liked the long length of the handle because it meant that I could keep my distance from the toilet itself while using the curved end to still easily get under the rim.
In terms of cleaning, the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush Toilet Cleaning System does a great job! Depending on whether or not you need to do a full cleaning or a quicker touch-up, there are different types of cleaning pads to use for your convenience. The Max Pads with Scrubbing Bubbles Cleaner resemble a sponge and work well for tough stains and thorough cleanings that are done less often.
In between, Scrubbing Bubbles has come up with Flushable Pads with Scrubbing Bubbles Cleaner that are attached for faster, get-rid-of-germs-quick, more often uses. Although I'm a long way from doing daily cleanings of my toilet, I do like how easy it is to pop one of these pads on the handle, run it over everywhere and be done in moments.
After disposing of your cleaning pad (again without having to touch it), hang the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush 2-in-1 handle on its included storage hook right on the side of your toilet so that it will be ready and waiting for next time. Simple! But, to make things even easier for me, I also really liked using the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel.
Once your toilet is clean, this handy item helps to keep it that way by "stamping" a gel disc under the toilet bowl rim and dispensing its cleaning power with every flush. Each time the water runs by, a small amount of the concentrated gel dissolves, circulates around the bowl and cleans the surface.
Now this is my type of product. All I need to do is apply this once a week and the toilet will clean itself for me? Sounds great! I really liked not having to touch any chemicals or drop anything into the toilet tank, as the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel discs cling right to the toilet without any problem. Plus, the fresh scent was an added bonus each time I walked into the bathroom to go along with my pride in having actually cleaned it myself.
