Clorox Disinfecting ToiletWand Disposable Toilet Cleaning SystemThursday, March 31, 2016
When it comes to cleaning around the house, there are two rooms that I despise the most - the kitchen and the bathroom. And not necessarily in that order. I perceive these two areas of the home to be the places where you will find the greatest amount of yucky bacteria and, therefore, need to be disinfected the most. Since cleaning the toilet bowl is one of my least favourite chores, I couldn't pass up on an offer to test out the new Clorox Disinfecting ToiletWand Disposable Toilet Cleaning System.
The overall look and design of the ToiletWand and storage caddy is quite sleek. The caddy conveniently stores the disposable cleaning head refills, which are preloaded with Clorox® toilet bowl cleaner. To use the ToiletWand, first push the handle straight down onto a cleaning head until it clicks into place. While this was easy enough, I did notice that the refills tended to stick to one another which meant I had to separate them by hand. The second step is a piece of cake since the powerful cleansers begin to foam almost instantly and seem to take the work out of having to scrub away the soils. The scrubby sponge, I feel, works better than the traditional toilet brush since it is flat and covers more surface area. Of particular note is the ability to get right into the drain area at the bottom of the bowl which is much harder to reach with my old toilet brush. The final step involves squeezing the excess water from the cleaning head by pressing it against the bowl and then sliding the blue button on the handle forward to release the head into a trash bin. Flush the toilet to rinse but remember, do not flush the cleaning head.
The Clorox® Disinfecting ToiletWand® works on a variety of hard, non- porous surfaces, including chrome, enamel, and glazed ceramic, and helps to power through tough stains and soils while killing germs like Staph and Salmonella. The cleaning system has a very reasonable cost of $7.99 and a set of 6 refills costs $3.69. You can find it at Walmart, Extra Foods, RCWC, Loblaws, SuperStore, Dominion, Fortinos, Provigo, YIG and Zehrs.
