Quickie Cleaning, a household power scrubber, made by Jarden Brands, asked me to review their new Quickie Cleaning “power tool”, as I like to call it. I used it to clean our basement bathroom, which doesn’t get a good, thorough cleaning very often (read: pretty much ever!).
The basement bathroom is not my responsibility to clean and as long as I don’t wear my reading glasses down there, it looks clean to me! My kids clean the bathrooms as part of their allowance chores. They clean the toilets, sink, and floors weekly. My husband and son, who share this basement bathroom, are responsible for cleaning the shower. Let’s just say I’m thankful that I don’t have to shower down there! (You’ll find my bathroom HERE!)
The floor is painted concrete and is not very smooth. Dirt gets into the grooves and doesn’t come out with simple mopping.
With the brush attachment, I was able to really get into the crevices of the concrete and really clean it!
In my spray bottle, I used 1-teaspoon of Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds mixed with water and then I sprinkled baking soda on top of that spray mixture. If you can, let the Sal Suds sprinkled with baking soda and sit over night. The longer it sits the better!
After I finished the shower area, I spotted the wainscoting on the walls and trim. I love how this trim looks on walls and it looked really great when we added it when we re-did this bathroom. After years of not cleaning it, moisture and dust had done this to it:
For cleaning, I sprayed the area with Sal Suds and had that Quickie cleaner working away with the brush attachment on it! I had to add extra water to the brush but it worked really well on all of the wood details. When I was finished, I wiped down the entire area several times with a wet cleaning rag. I’m sure cleaning wood trim was not what this hand-tool was meant to do but it worked really well and was easier than I imagined.
Here’s what I liked:
- It’s very easy to use and set up.
- It comes with batteries. How many times have you bought something that requires batteries and they don’t come with them?
- The package came with extra cleaning heads so there’s nothing new for me to buy for a while.
- It put a nice shine on my stainless-steel kitchen sink with the all-purpose head and baking soda.
- It was fun to use! This may inspire my kids to scrub the entire basement bathroom floor!
Here’s what I didn’t like:
- It was hard to get close to the corners with the scrub brush because the ring that holds the bristles got in the way. It seems like this could be remedied by making the plastic ring smaller or making the brush angled or an extension to it. Either would be helpful to get those corners cleaned!
- The big plastic packaging. I realize this seems standards to most companies but the packaging was as big as the actual product. Fortunately for me, I have a place that I can recycle the packaging but many areas don’t have this as an option.
