Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber

I am in love with the Scrubbing Bubbles Action Scrubber!

When I got an invitation to this campaign on BzzAgent, I went ahead and joined even though I don't do a whole lot of bathtub/shower cleaning myself. After all, I have a cleaning lady! (Now, don't you judge me! You all know that's because my time is limited since I work outside the home.)

However, I figured that there would be a time when I would have to (reluctantly) clean the tub myself. How could I know how right I would be?

I recently had to tell my cleaning lady not to come during Chicken Pox/Staph Infection Extravaganza 2008. And that bathtub- well, it severely needed to be cleaned, especially after all those oatmeal baths that poor WC had taken.

I actually got a little excited to try this product out. And it worked fabulously. It easily removed all the soap/oatmeal scum on the tub, and my hand didn't even get dirty! Also, the smell is not at all overpowering, like some cleaning products can be.

So I'm sold!

  • The Starter Kit includes 1 handle and 4 cleaning pads in a compact storage tub – all for a suggested price of $5.29 (note: There's a coupon for $2.75 on their website!)
  • The cleaning pad Refill Kit contains 6 pads and has a suggested price of $3.19
  • Both the Starter and Refill Kits are available at all major retailers
  • The Handle is made from extruded foam, low density polyethylene (that means it's comfy!), water-repellent, and equipped with fastener strips to attach easily to the cleaning pad
  • The Cleaning Pad is multi-layered with tiny scrubbing fibers, pre-loaded with concentrated Scrubbing Bubbles® foaming cleaner, water-activated, and disposable after one-time use (one pad cleans an average shower/tub)
  • The Storage Tub holds six cleaning pads, stores the handle on top, and takes up little space
Have you tried this product, and if so, what did you think?

I got it from BzzAgent also. I liked it alot. It definitely got all of the soap scum up BUT I wasn't that thrilled with the lack of quality on the velcro strips that attached the scrubbing pad to the handle. Maybe I scrubbed too hard? My scrubbing pad kept slipping half way off the handle.
I did love the handle and thought that it was such a neat idea to have it made from swim noodle material. Happy cleaning.

That looks like something I definitely need to check out!!

I am totally getting this! I hate scrubbing the tub because my hands always wind up smelling like bleach cleaner for a day afterwards! Thanks for posting about this!

I got this using the coupon and then sending in the receipt for a rebate. I like it except I have the same problem that Kally had with the scubbing pad falling off of the handle.

I had the same problem with the velcro and handle not sticking. It was pretty terrific when I used it without the handles in between the grout. But, I have run out and I am not sure I will purchase again.

Re: the velcro sticking

There was a note in my package about sort of "shimmying" the handle on the pad to make the velcro work better. I tried that and I didn't have any problems getting my pad to stay on to clean my entire bathtub.

I love these things!!!

I have been using them for about 4 months. They are great, but you do have to shimmy the velcro. I am able to do both my shower and tub, because I clean weekly. Yes, I clean my own bathrooms. I have NO cleaning lady. Just call me Maria!
