Nobody wants to talk or hear about toilet bowl cleaning. It's nasty, probably one of the worst jobs in the history of house cleaning especially with a house full of kids! We had the opportunity to try out a new way to clean the toilet with Scrubbing Bubbles One Step toilet bowl cleaner by SC Johnson.

Just step and spray, two times a day. The 360 degree sprayer cleans the bowl and under the rim, killing bacteria on contact. The powerful cleaning solution tackles toilet rings and limescale. Fresh Mountain Morning has a fresh and clean scent leaving the bathroom smelling fresh for family and guests. The refill lasts up to 30 days when used as directed and product is safe for the septic tank.

Scrubbing Bubbles 1 step toilet bowl cleaner can be purchased at most local retailers like Walmart or Zellers for around $10 or under. Package includes 1 device, 1 cleaning product refill - no batteries required.

This product isn't a bad idea entirely its useful for "in-between" cleanings or to freshen up the bathroom when guests are over, it helps ease the whole "bending over to scrub" part but that to me isn't that hard a job. The product does shine up the bowl pretty good for just coming out of a little sprayer however, if you have young children in the house who wander it wouldn't be suggested to have one of these in your home.

The foot pedal pump cannot be shut off or be locked and the sprayer does not stick to the side of the toilet bowl as well as it should, this poses a hazard for young children to be tempted to pull on the cord and find out what this new device in the bathroom is. This could be hazardous if the product is ingested. This did not happen to us but as a mom of two (one being only 3) I couldn't help notice the lack of safety features geared toward families with younger kids. Our kids did played with it behind my back and emptied the bottle within a couple of days however nobody was injured or ingested anything of the sort, I was simply using it as a precaution. I could lock my bathroom but that poses a big problem with a seven year old girl and a potty trainer ;-)

I would recommend this be used in a bathroom where young kids aren't allowed or in a household without children. After our review we decided this product is not suitable for our home because we have children under the age of 8 who are curious but we plan on gifting it perhaps to my mother or mother in law, I'm sure they could get good use out of it!

  1. I received this too. I have not had a chance to try it out yet. Anything to make cleaning the bathroom easier is good in my books

  2. Don't get me wrong, it's a great idea - I just feel they could have added more safety features like a lock switch or something. It does do what it claims though ;)

  4. I'm with you on the safety concern, this weekend while cleaning I had a new toilet cleaner that was blue and my daughter wanted to get up to her elbows in it! Little kids are bound to want to poke around new things so you have to be extra careful.
