Yucky chore made easier – product review

Besides the mounds of weekly laundry, my most dreaded chore is cleaning the bathroom. So when BzzAgent had a campaign to test Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean power sprayer I signed up quick, fast and in a hurry.

There are two things I like most about the product: 1) the power sprayer. 2) the way it cleans. I’ve never seen anything like this (that’s because it’s the first ever one-touch continuous sprayer). All I had to do was push the trigger and the cleaner just continually comes out until the trigger is released. It’s such an amazing feature that the Arthritis Foundation has given it the “Ease-of-Use Commendation.” As a person who suffers from chronic pain I was really sold on this aspect and was pleased that I didn’t suffer any additional discomfort from cleaning.

image The cleaning was as easy as it was described to be: Spray on, let sit, wipe and repeat for periodic cleaning. This spray is designed for the occasional deep cleaning. Most areas in my tub and shower were easily cleaned, but – especially since I have older tile and linoleum – there were some areas that required more attention.

There are two things I didn’t like about the product: 1) It was quite strong especially in my bathroom, which has no windows and inadequate ventilation. The bottle does indicate it’s best used in a well ventilated area. 2) It seemed like the product was gone rarely quickly. I didn’t notice how full the bottle was when I started, but when I was finished there was about two inches of liquid left in it.

image All of the facts: The suggested retail price is $8.99 for the start kit and the refill is $3.99. You keep the one-touch continuous sprayer and just buy another bottle. There is also a Scrubbing Bubbles Daily Shower cleaner that also has the trigger and I can’t wait to try that.

I give Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean power sprayer two thumbs up. Have you tried it yet? If not, will you? If so, what do you think? Leave a comment and let me know.
