I Love Cleaning the Toilet Now

OK, so that title is an exaggeration, but I have found the best toilet cleaner ever. So, let me be clear... this is not a paid or sponsored post. I simply like this product and felt the need to share.
Hubby and I have always lived in houses with hard water. This is typically solved by a water softener, but our toilets have always developed deposits in the bowl from the water. It drives me crazy. Cleaning the toilet once a week is a gross enough task.... having to do it more than that is just ridiculous. For awhile I used Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Max cleaner. I like that you can just toss the part that attaches to the wand and not have a dirty toilet brush hanging out in the bathroom. But for the last year or so I have only been able to find the Fresh Brush flushable pads, which don't work as well as the Fresh Brush Max.
Then a few months ago I was picking up more of the flushable pads when something caught my eye: Kaboom's Scrub Free Continuous Toilet Cleaning System. It was on sale so I decided to give it a try. Thank goodness I did.
The product snaps in your tank and somehow releases Oxiclean each time you flush. It lasts about three months, which takes some of the sting out of the price (I bought it for $7.99. The Kabooom website lists it at $9.99). It truly keeps the toilet clean until I can scrub it. Now I can use the Fresh Max flushable pads, since the toilet bowl doesn't need a tough scrubbing. On the occasion when I skip a week of cleaning, the toilet is no worse for the wear. Even when I do clean, the bowl no longer has hard water build up.
I like anything that makes my housework easier, so I thought I would share... even if I still don't like cleaning the toilet.

I love that product, too. It makes a hell of a difference.

Thanks for the note. I could use it in our bathroom, but the girls sometimes leave the seat up in theirs, and my cat does not need Oxiclean in her system!

Sounds intriguing. Scrubbing the toilets is one household chore my husband does, thankfully - but I certainly wouldn't mind getting that scrub brush out of the bathroom forever!

The toilets at our house are the bane of my existence. We have well water, which is very hard, and must use a softener . . . so I know exactly what you're talking about. Sounds like this product is something I need to try.

We had well water in our first house... I wish this product had been around back then!

Did you previously have a blog on I've been looking for your new blog!

I had Silly Mom Thoughts there, and where I last ended up blogging was on being pregnant with twins. Anyway, I'm going to add you to my blog roll, if you don't mind. I'm so glad I found you again, I loved reading your posts!

Thanks for the hint. It's no one's favorite chore and anything that makes it easier helps.

Still, I think you should call a friend and go out for coffee. You need to remember who you are. (smile)
