Review: Scrubbing Bubbles One Step - like a shower for your toilet

Thank you Bzzagent for trying to make my house as clean as possible, in spite of myself! This time they sent along a Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Cleaner to review.

I kept seeing the box in-store and in commercials but couldn't figure out what it was or how it worked.

This is what I kept from the box. Notice the word "kept." There was a white plastic sheet about the size of an 8x10 wrapped around the can but I thought it was packaging and threw it away. Turns out I was supposed to wrap the can in it to hide it. Now ALL my bathroom users will know I use Scrubbing Bubbles!

This is the doohickey (pardon the technical jargon) that latches unto the toilet rim and sends out soap.

See that? Easy peasy my peeps, all I had to do was stretch it out and let it latch on. I was concerned because my toilet seat is kinda low but it didn't interfere at all.

So here it is, all set up and waiting to be stepped on. When I step on the lever the doohickey under the toilet seat spins and sprays the inside of the bowl with cleanser. I tried to take a picture the first time by lifting the seat but it starts squirting IMMEDIATELY! Before I had a chance to lower the seat or stand up and move it had squirted the toilet twice and stopped. By the way - the side of my cabinet isn't yellow and gross, lighting in bathrooms can be weird.

Its pretty quiet, ridiculously fast and seems to keep the bowl pretty clean. I've had it set up for less than a week and haven't had any problems with it. It seems to operate on the "spin and quirt" principle my beloved shower cleaner uses and that's kept me in Lazy Shower Mode for years.

I like how it smells too. Scrubbing Bubbles generally does a good job of creating clean/non-chemical scents. Whenever I press the lever it smells like I spent hours cleaning my bathroom.

I think this retails for about 10 bucks but since its new there are $4 coupons in almost all the papers and magazines. The drugstores are also running sales and promotions. Refills are supposed to last about a month.
