Favorite Friday

I'm going to (try to) start sharing one of my favorite things each Friday. Mostly just to make sure I keep up on posting. I don't want our blog to get TOO boring. Today is a great day to start this because I have a very blog worthy product to post about.

My totally awesome neighbor, Sandy, told me about this Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach yesterday. She also gave me some to try out. It was perfect timing because I was cleaning all the bathrooms in preparation for my parents to stay here tonight. We have hard water at our house and it leaves some pretty ugly remnants in the toilet sometimes. Mostly in the kid's bathroom that doesn't really get used very often. The lack of flushing creates more hard water stains. I have tried many products and methods to get rid of the stains but was never really impressed...until yesterday! This toilet bowl cleaner rules! I put a generous coat in each of the toilets and left them overnight. When I checked this morning, they were all clean! No scrubbing, no pumice stone, no reaching in the nasty toilet. Just squirt and go to bed. Amazing! That's all I can say.
I really probably shouldn't admit that my toilets get icky stains sometimes but, come on, I have one 1-2 hour break per day to do about 500 things (while Charlie sleeps) and I can't seem to get my toilets scrubbed every day. So, sue me. It's impossible to do it while Charlie is awake, just in case you were wondering. The bathroom is a danger zone when Charlie is there and I can't let him run around the house because he is into anything and everything. So, please don't judge. I just had to share this new product. If you've ever had toilet cleaning issues, I would highly recommend running to the store immediately and getting some!

I'm totally running to the store for some. I need this in my life since I have 500 things to do each day when my two little ones are napping too! Thanks for sharing! :)

This is a great Friday posting idea. I am always looking for product recommendations. We have a ghetto 70's toilet in our guest bath. I think maybe I'll try to tackle it with this stuff. Thanks.

I have the same problem with my toilets. They always seem to get dirty long before I have a chance to clean them. I have never used that kind. I'll try it once mine runs out.

Never thought I'd be so excited about toilet cleaner, but if my girls weren't asleep, I'd be on my way to Target right now. Graci.

I'm already excited for next Friday. Do you have any product recommendations for ear splitting screaming for ten minutes without ceasing because a child can't ride their sister's bike?

No scrubbing?!! I LOVE that. I'm adding that one to my grocery list for sure. Thanks for sharing.

Tammy said...

Who scrubs their toilets every day?!?! I am happy if I get it done once a month! I just like to have stuff picked up off the floor

Mike and Adrianne said...

We have the same problem with our toilet and it's also in the boy's bathroom where it doesn't get used very often. I'm going to go buy some next time I'm at the store!

Melanie said...

I'm supposed to scrub my toilets everyday?!
oops. My goal is once a week. I use the same toilet bowl cleaner too and I love it. I've also discovered Clorox disinfectant wipes work great for wiping down the seat.

Thanks for posting information about this product, I will definately have to try this one!

Melissa said...

running to go get it.

Love it. I use it to clean my showers. Really, I do. I just squirt it all around, let the shower water run and then wipe it down with a rag. It feels so clean.
I buy that stuff six at a time at Costco. It's the best.
Thanks for the fun post.

are you kidding, I am addicted to bleach!!

Nat said...

Awesome! I love the friday idea too. Can't wait to see what's next.

Tricia said...

I too am a clorox bleach toilet cleaner user! It is the greatest....I use it on everything in the bathroom. It works great! Well, since we have to clean it works great. A self cleaning house would be AWESOME!

When I saw this post I was so excited because I have the same problem in my bathrooms, then I had to laugh. Seriously Steph, did you ever think that we would get to a point in our lives when Toilet Bowl cleaner would bring us such joy? lol
Can't wait for next week.
