Scrubbing the toilet is not my favorite job. The only reason I do it is because my husband refuses to and we can’t afford a maid. Tho only thing worse than cleaning a dirty toilet is trying to clean a dirty toilet brush. Even after soaking it in a trash can full of disinfectant, I never felt like it was really
clean. I hated touching it.
Another problem with the brush is that there is no convenient place to store it. I’ve seen people leave them laying on the floor or put them under the sink, but that’s just nasty. I had the kind that came with its own matching holder. This was too tall to fit under my sink so it was always in view, beside the toilet.
High praise to the Clorox Toilet Wand for saving all of us from the nasty toilet brushes of the world! Why didn’t somebody think of this sooner?
This is a sleek, white wand with a little hole on the business end that snaps onto the cleaning heads. The wand sells for about $10. There’s a plastic holder that comes with it that will stick to the inside of your cabinet door. The wand fits into this and this is where it lives–out of sight.
The cleaning heads are sold separately (there’s one in the box with the wand) in boxes of six or ten. At approximately fifty cents a head, this is an expensive way to keep your bowl clean, but I don’t care. This is easy and quick, and it doesn’t gross you out like the brush does. You can’t put a price on that. I fretted about the expense at first, but now I’ve decided that this is a small luxury I’m going to allow myself. Anything that makes bathroom cleaning chores more pleasant is worth whatever Clorox, or anybody else, wants to charge for it as far as I’m concerned.
The Clorox Toilet Wand cleaning heads, which are impregnated with a foaming, blue cleaner, work better than a brush because they’re made of the same stuff that you find on the back of a scrubber sponge. They’re just the right size and shape to get under the rim. We have very hard water here and they’re rough enough to remove all the water deposits without scratching the porcelain.
When you finish scrubbing, you just press the pad against the side of the bowl to remove the excess water then press the button on the wand to release the cleaning head into the trash can. Don’t flush it down the toilet or you might find yourself in need of a plumber. Then I just wash the wand with liquid soap, dry it with a paper towel and put it back in its holder. That’s the best part–after your big cleaning job, you don’t have another big cleaning job.
