While I love a clean home I don’t always like cleaning. I go through phases where I want the kitchen sink spotless or the floors vacuumed daily but that’s not the norm. In order to avoid a heavy spring cleaning I try to keep up with cleaning year round…try being the key word. I’m a huge fan of FlyLady and her cleaning zone method! She recommends breaking up your house into zones where you’ll focus on a new zone each week and spend 15 minutes a day on that zone and an additional 15 minutes decluttering. I love to break up cleaning into small chunks of time. I find it much easier to do any task for 15 minutes a few times each day instead of spending a few hours once a week.
My tips for spring cleaning:
- Set a timer
- Play upbeat music
- Declutter first
Cleaning toilets isn’t just a spring cleaning task but one that should take place regularly. Let’s face it, cleaning a toilet isn’t something anyone enjoys! Clorox and Mom Central gave me a ToiletWand to review in hopes that it would make my cleaning a bit easier and I want to tell you about my experience with it.
My ToiletWand cleaning kit included a ToiletWand handle, six refills, and a storage container.
How Clorox ToiletWand works:
Put the ToiletWand handle into the storage container and snap on a refill. Dip the want into the toilet water and clean like usual. Once finished carry the wand over the trashcan and press the release button to drop the refill into the trash.
- It’s attractive enough to leave in your bathroom.
- Cleaning solution is built in.
- It cleans well.
- One time use only, expensive for homes with multiple bathrooms.
- Difficult to snap in refill without picking up and putting on by hand.
My recommendations would be for Clorox to remake the bottom of the storage container with a non-skid base and a narrower storage area that way it would be easier to attach each refill. I tried to reuse the disposable refill in another bathroom but there wasn’t enough solution left. I know it wasn’t meant to be used more than once but with three toilets in our home the cost of these could quickly add up.
In summary, I recommend the Clorox ToiletWand for families with only one bathroom and who would like the convenience of only storing one item instead of two (standard toilet cleaner and toilet wand).
The Starter Kit retails for $10.00 and the refills for about $5.00. Clorox is offering our readers a $3 printable coupon here: http://bricks.coupons.com/Bstart.asp?o=84354&c=CL&p=sqpfkzZP
