I don't mind scrubbing toilets, I guess. I just don't always get around to it as often as I should. Especially in our master bathroom, which I rarely use. Does that seem odd? To not use the master bath hardly ever?
Well, for the first 11 years of our marriage, my husband worked a rotating work shift: six weeks of straight nights (7 p.m. to 5:30 a.m.) and then six weeks of days (6 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). Since my #1 goal in life back then was to not ever wake him up while he was sleeping, I used our hall bathroom...and still do. Even though he now works straight dayshift, with a different set of hours, old habits die hard.
Okay, well, I did wake him up on September 11th. But normally, I never woke him up. And I learned to keep our little girls back then very quiet so they wouldn't wake up Daddy, either.
When I heard that SheSpeaks was planning to let folks use and review the new Scrubbing Bubbles® One-Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner, I thought it would be worth a try. If it meant I could get away with scrubbing the toilet less often, maybe it would be worth it.
The entire kit was easy to set up, even for me. I'm a bit on the "mechanically-challenged" spectrum. But it was easy - the directions were very clear. Whew!
When Elmer arrived home from work that night, he was interested in this gadget. He was a bit disappointed to learn that he could only step on the little "pedal" twice a day instead of after each flush (must be a man thing!!!), but he seemed fine with the refreshing smell of the product at work.
After one week of use, I was scrubbing the toilet in the other bathroom, so I went to check out the master bath toilet.
Ugh. There was still a ring at the water level line that was going to need to be scrubbed. I was surprised.
Our water isn't hard water, nor is it ultra soft. But it's on the soft side of grains of hardness, so there shouldn't have been a water line ring based on minerals in the water.
I checked out the price of the refill - which needs to be purchased monthly - and it was between $4.50 and $5.00 per refill can.
Bummer. I think the concept of this product is really great, but it still needs some more work. If I'm still going to have to scrub the toilet bowl every week, while paying $5 per month to use this product, it really isn't worth the expense to purchase it.
If, however, the product enabled me to still have a clean-looking toilet bowl after about a month, and all I needed to do was to clean the toilet seat and lid each week, then that might have been worth the expense, although I still think it is overpriced.
So...there you have it. My take on the Scrubbing Bubbles® One-Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner. It's a great concept, but it's a bit on the expensive side of things, and it didn't work as well as I'd hoped.
I received one Scrubbing Bubbles® One-Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner startup kit and a one-month refill from SheSpeaks in exchange for my honest review of this product. No other compensation was provided.
