scrubbing bubbles toilet bowl cleaning gel
One of the things in my bzzz kit was the scrubbing bubbles toilet cleaning gel. The toilet gel package contained One disposable dispenser and One gel holder (gel holder contains six gel discs).
This is my review of this product.
It's supposed to be easy to use, but it took me a little while to figure it out and I have heard from friends that they have had the same issue. It is certainly easy after you know what your doing after the first time.
The benefits of Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel as listed on their website and my opinions on their claims:
* Prevents the build-up of lime scale and toilet rings
My toilets water when it flushed doesn't rise up enough to swish along the gel disk which is what helps prevent toilet rings. When I flush the water rushes over it and down into the toilet.
* Continuously cleans and freshens with every flush
Again I don't know about other toilets, but with mine since the water just rushes over it and down into the toilet and doesn't rise up enough to swish around in the toilet I didn't see a marked difference.
* Eliminates odors as it cleans
Boy does it eliminate odor, I could smell the fresh clean scent every time I went into the bathroom. I loved the scent so much I would buy it just for that reason alone, it worked to make my bathroom smell fresh better than the auto air fresheners I generally use in there.
* Each disc lasts up to one week
You have to take claims as they are worded, they claim up to one week which really means it will last any where from 1 day to 1 week, but there are no specifics as far as how long it is supposed to work. I used the product for 30 days and on average a disk lasted 4 days.
* Leaves no residue behind
It does not leave any residue behind, one minute the disk is there the next it's not. I didn't even notice it diminishing in size, it just disappeared which makes me think the disk just stops being able to stick to the toilet and flops off.
* More hygienic than traditional clip-on bowl cleaners
The only other toilet cleaner I have used is the drop in the tank tablets and it compares as far as how hygienic the products are....the tank option you have to lift the tank lid up and with the disk you have to lift up the toilet seat. As far as what my understanding is of clip on bowl cleaners you have to lift the seat as well, so I would call it comparable.
* Safe for septic systems
I am not a professional so I can't comment on this claim.
The first day I tried the toilet bowl cleaning gel the disk came out like a star exactly how it is supposed to look.
The next two times I tried it the gel stuck to the dispenser and when it came off on the bowl it looked either like a lump or a cone shape. There are no real directions on how to store the product so I looked on their website and int he FAQs section it says if this happens it was not assembled correctly and to take it apart and put it back together. However seeing as that it came out right the first time I obviously put it together right, the product just has some type of storing issue.
