Guide Review - Clorox BathWand
The handle is 23 inches long, giving a much longer reach, and reducing the amount of bending and stretching involved in scrubbing a bathtub. The handle is easily and permanently assembled by screwing the bottom half into the top half. The starter kit includes a hanging hook meant to hang off of the curtain rod or shower head. I would have preferred to have a built-in hook for the BathWand, but for those who like to store the BathWand where the cleaning needs to be done, this may be ideal.
The Cleaning Head
The cleaning head has velcro-like bristle that attach themselves to the cleaning pad. The head swivels to make scrubbing in tight areas easier on your hands and wrists. The cleaning head pops onto the end of the cleaning wand and is very sturdy and secure.
The Cleaning Pad
The cleaning head has a fluffy side that attaches to the bristle on the bottom of the cleaning head. The cleaning side is a scrubbing pad filled with Clorox cleaner. Wet the cleaning pad to activate the cleanser and begin scrubbing. Re-wet the cleaning pad anytime during the job to release more cleanser. The Clorox cleaner foams up and scrubs the toilet and shower, cleaning very well.
A clean shower and bathtub. The area looked and smelled wonderful with much less work than I'm used to doing for such a great result.
