I was given the opportunity to review the Toilet Wand from our friends at Clorox Canada and I jumped at the chance. I had never been happier to clean my toilet! Once the package arrived in the mail, I tore it open and easily assembled the wand complete with 6 disposable disinfecting cleaning heads. It’s fairly easy to assemble as the starter kit includes three parts to it:
- 1 disinfecting Toiletwand handle
- 1 disinfecting Toiletwand storage canopy
- 6 disinfecting Toiletwand cleaning heads
There motto on the box is “Click, Clean and Toss” and I was happy to say that it’s a very accurate statement!
The back of the box gives you an easy-to-follow breakdown of what to expect with this neat little gadget. As soon as the cleaning head came into contact with water, it immediately foamed up with a blue hue and created the “cleaning bubbles” visual you’d expect. The octagonal shape and swivel action of the cleaning heads allows one to easily get into the crevices of the toilet bowl. Although it is a disinfectant, the scent wasn’t too overpowering as most cleaners can be. For those, however with sensitive noses, I would probably ask your spouse to do the job instead as it can get to you a bit.
It took no time at all, and I mean less than 5 minutes, to thoroughly clean my toilet. I was quite happy with the results. The bowl was sparkly clean, but it peaked my curiosity on whether it could be used for just one toilet at a time or if the cleaning action can be spread for all three of my toilets in one sitting. It seemed to be powerful enough that I was willing to challenge it. So I did just that! I ventured upstairs to my 2-year-old daughter’s bathroom and decided to put this Toilet Wand to the test. Again, as soon as the cleaning head came into contact with the water, the blue foam was apparent, however not as foamy as it’s first use. I was able to again thoroughly clean the toilet bowl with minimal elbow work as I left it all to the wand. I was quite impressed. However, it was pretty evident that it wasn’t going to survive the task of cleaning my toilet in the master bedroom. To dispose of the cleaning head, there is a blue button at the top of the wand that one would simply slide forward, releasing the head into the garbage. Easy assembly, easy clean-up.
Overall, I would say this really is the easiest and most effective tool to use in the bathroom! Our toilets were left smelling clean and disinfected without having to scrub the toilet as you would with most other cleaners using a regular toilet brush. If the toilet is not heavily soiled, then it can have up to two effective uses. Although I think the intent is to dispose of the cleaning head after just one use which may end up pretty costly in the long run, depending on how many toilets one has to clean and how often they need to be cleaned. The storage caddy is white, sleek and clean-looking so it can nicely be placed next to any toilet in the bathroom and fit right in. My only issue would be that if I were to try to clean another toilet in my home, the transport of the wand without it dripping on the floors and carpet would be a bit tricky as the caddy is where the remaining cleaning heads are stored so I wouldn’t be able to put the wet wand in there. I guess the easy answer (and again, the costly answer) would be to have one Disinfecting Toilet Wand per bathroom.
