Product Review: Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel

One of the worst cleaning jobs in the house has to be cleaning the toilet. It is by far the dirtiest, most unsanitary places ever. So when a company promises to keep your toilet cleaner and extend the time in between cleanings, of course you're going to be interested. Scrubbing Bubbles made that promise with their Toilet Cleaning Gel and unfortunately, it doesn't work.

The Toilet Cleaning Gel is super easy to use. Clean your toilet like you normally would and then use the dispenser to stamp a gel disc onto the inside of your toilet bowl. This gel will gradually dissolve when you flush and will clean the toilet. Except that it doesn't. The gel disc is supposed to last a week but after only a few days I noticed build up on the inside of the toilet bowl and a rim appearing. At the end of the week, the toilets were disgusting.

To be fair, I made sure that we had used it properly. I didn't want to rush on here after the first week in case we hadn't done it right. So I made sure to bleach and clean the heck out of the toilets and reapply the gel. And the second and third weeks were the same. It almost seems like the toilets stay cleaner longer without the gel. I could buy another one and try some more variations, but it really isn't worth spending money on that.

Sorry everyone, it looks like for now we'll have to keep cleaning the toilets the old fashioned way. I'll invest my money on some rubber gloves.
