Review and giveaway (closed): Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Congrats to my winner: jcsjcs

In general I consider myself to be a pretty good housekeeper, and things in my house stay pretty clean. But there are some chores that I like more than others and then there are chores that I absolutely loathe. Top of that list? Cleaning the toilet bowl.  So I was SO excited to find out that, thanks to Scrubbing Bubbles and the Family Review Network, I was going to get to review a new product, the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner.


Here's some information on this product:
The Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner provides a 360-degree clean, three times a day (no flushing required) by automatically spraying a powerful cleaner inside the toilet bowl, tackling unsightly toilet rings, lime scale and hard watermarks. Simply clip onto the toilet rim, add a new cleaning solution refill approximately every 30 days and the Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner does the dirty work for you.
I was a little intimidated when I pulled the apparatus out of the box, but it comes with easy-to-follow instructions and I had it installed in a few short minutes.  You have the option of either hanging the bottle of cleaning solution on your tank or putting it on the floor next to your toilet. It's nice to have that option.

I really like this new cleaner. Although we don't have particularly hard water here where I live, we do have problems with something in our water that produces a pink ring in our toilet bowl, and this cleaner took away that problem.  I also like that my toilet bowl is being cleaned three times per day with no effort from me. The toilet bowl cleaner can be used with the seat up or down, and if installed properly, the spray will stay in the bowl and not get on the seat or anything else. For added safety, there is a sensor that will keep the spray from going off if it senses movement.

Here's my toilet after about a week of use of the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner.  No pink ring or other water stains! It looks so clean and pretty! (I did wipe off the outside of the toilet prior to taking a photo, but did not clean the bowl with the toilet brush) You can see the cleaning solution hanging on the side of the toilet, as I mentioned earlier,  you can also put this on the floor if you prefer.

I haven't noticed any cleaning solution type odor from this device, so it's definitely an improvement over the toilet cleaners that I had been using before.  Since it cleans three times per day, it does use up the cleaning solution fairly quickly, and you will need a new refill about once per month, which could get a little expensive after a while. And, of course, you will still have to clean the outside and edges of your toilet, since this just keeps the bowl clean. All that being said, I really like this automatic toilet bowl cleaner and will be buying one soon for my second bathroom. It's currently available for purchase at drugstore.com and amazon.com

I hate all of it! Ugh! But my LEAST favorite cleaning job is mopping. Such a pain! Plus, I use a wheelchair, so it's difficult to get the floor mopped and not leave wheel tracks across it. I usually delegate this job to other family members, but eventually I have to do it, too.

Ugh.
