Soft Scrub 4-In-1 Toilet Care System Review + Giveaway~ 5/1

Momma Told Me: Cleaning the toilet is just a fact of life.

Out of all the household chores cleaning the bathroom, specifically the toilet, is the one I loathe most. It's ironic, really, as that was the very first chore I was tasked with during my childhood. Before I was permitted to push a vacuum, or flourish a duster I was taught how to scrub the porcelain throne until it glistened. I couldn't have been more than 6 or 7 when Momma first thrust that white and yellow Soft Scrub bottle in my hand, and with a damp scour sponge, instructed me to get to work. There was some whining on my part about how I needed gloves (I'm sure I had a romantic notion of household chores being more glamorous with an elbow length pair of yellow rubber gloves), and Momma was quick to cease whining with a threat to pull my allowance (all $3 of it). Yes, it seems Momma disliked cleaning the toilet just as much as me; unfortunately at 1/6 of her size and fraction of her age, I was outranked on the matter.
When the Purex Insiders gave me an opportunity to try the newest product in the Soft Scrub range, 4-In-1 Toilet Care, I was eager to sample any product that promised to prolong my bowl's freshness between cleanings. In our household Jay avoids touching the toilet much like his profuse aversion to raw poultry. It's funny, as I'd wager 70%+ of the 'mess' is thanks to him! And, ladies can identify, I am consistently in awe at the status of my toilet seat when I go to scrub that bowl. One would think the men who touch the seat daily, in order to use the toilet, would be the most concerned with what lies beneath! In any case the new 4-In-1 Toilet Care product promises to keep our hands out of the bowl longer, and costs less than $2 at the local grocer. Much like traditional gel press-ons, or bowl drop-ins, Soft Scrub 4-In-1 continually treats the bowl and water with each flush.

While the product may look a little alien at first, these 4 slowly eroding balls of cleanser utilize your toilet's natural whirlpool, flushing, action to distribute the cleanser/deodorizer and effectively fight buildup. If you've ever fought to keep away those nasty toilet bowl rings, you understand the importance of having flush activated cleansers. This nifty cleaning device hangs over your toilet bowl's edge, somewhat awkwardly (it could fit better, but does the job), and is sold in two varieties, with and without bleach. I'm actually quite amazed how long the eroding cleanser has lasted, with a promised lifespan of 4 weeks, as it seems to dissolve very slowly over time.
The two varieties also offer different scents, the Bleach being my preferred Alpine Fresh, while the original is a more floral Sapphire Waters. When I initially installed the 4-In-1 Toilet Care I intentionally did so between cleanings to see if the product would actually wear away at the existing buildup over time. To me this was a bigger test than  the discouragement of new buildup. The answer was yes, it did, in fact, break up existing stains and gunk from under the rim of our toilet bowl. Within a week the bowl seemed brighter and cleaner, without ever having touched a sponge to the bowl! Of course this product is not intended as a hands free sanitation solution, but merely to extend the cleanliness of one's toilet between cleanings. While it's good to have some proof of the powerful cleansing action, we have resumed our regular cleaning schedule. Right now I prefer this system to traditional toilet tank cakes, but am unsure whether they perform better than the competitors gel press-ons. Only time will tell!

Naturally, like most Purex Insiders product launches, there is a great sweepstakes being hosted, in order to promote the new Soft Scrub 4-In-1 Toilet Care product. Head on over here to get entered in the Brighter Bowl Sweepstakes where one grand prize winner will claim $1000! Entries are valid daily now through April 26, 2013, so be sure to stop in every day to maximize your odds!
