Ok, so here's the deal - I signed up as a Bzz Agent. What does this mean? It means that companies mail me stuff to try out and post what I think about them. They send me samples, coupons to share with people, etc. I'm supposed to post about it on my blog or on facebook or twitter (I'm not a tweeter) or in person.
So since my blog streams through my facebook anyway, I thought I'd hit you with the review right here and cover both bases!
The product I got first is Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean. It's advertised as a bathroom cleaner that has a few advantages. #1 is that it comes with a 1-touch continuous sprayer. The other is that it has active cleaners that work for 4 days after you clean it.
My thoughts? They're mixed.
First of all, the 1-touch sprayer is sort of awesome since I have an enormous walk-in shower that I foolishly decorated with white subway tile. Sure, there are some blue accents in there, but seriously! White! That much white! What was I thinking?!?!? My next bathroom will have mold colored grout and some sort of gray/tan tile. You know, the kind you can pretend you cleaned so your husband doesn't ask you what you did all day. Every day. Because apparently keeping 4 children alive isn't enough. (haha - love you babe!)
Back to the continuous sprayer. It was pretty cool. You push the button and a moter just starts working and sprays the cleaning foam all over the place. It was a nice break for my arms. Even though I HAVE been working out. I think this would be sort of awesome for someone older, maybe with arthritis or broken fingers.
The 4 day cleaning? I don't know. Really? How does it do that after I've scrubbed it all off? I don't get it. My shower is pretty amazingly clean right now though. I was impressed.
HOWEVER - the fumes were pretty terrible - I didn't have great ventilation at the time, but even so...it was pretty noxious. I have another refill and I'll probably use it anyway because I'm cheap like that, but to be honest, I don't know if I'd buy it again. Unless it was on sale and I had a coupon. (HEY! I have coupons! $5 off coupons! If you want one, please let me know and I'll be happy to give you one.)
What do YOU use for your shower? Any special tricks? My honest-to-goodness favorite thing to use (can you say favorite when you LOATHE cleaning the shower?!?!) are the Magic Eraser pads. They are seriously magical. But since this is supposed to be about the bubbles, I'll just leave it at that.
