My WFMW tip for today is going to sound like a shameless product endorsement, but just so you know, I’m posting this of my own free will. My own, free, mildew-hating will.
The first time I saw a commercial for the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner, I was indignant. The idea behind it is that you hang this little battery-powered contraption in your shower, and it will automatically spray down your shower every time you press the button.
“Really?” I thought. “Have we as a nation gotten so lazy we can’t even scrub our own showers?”
And then I stopped to try and remember the last time I gave my shower a good scrubbing. And then I shut up.
A friend told me this doo-hicky was actually pretty impressive. I found a good coupon for it, and I thought it wouldn’t hurt to try.
It actually works. Really well! Not only does it keep the shower clean, but it smells SO good. The refills cost basically the same as a regular bottle of shower scrub, so the only additional cost is the doo-hicky upfront (and I think I bought mine for $15 at WalMart, with a coupon–that included two refill bottles).
Now, here’s the funny part.
When I hung it in our shower, I happened to read through the warning label. Here’s what it says:
Look at the fifth item: “Not a body wash.”
Really? Is this a widespread problem? Is there an outbreak of people who think it’s a good idea to scrub themselves down with….
WAIT JUST A MINUTE.
I thought of my three little boys, and their remarkable ability to take showers in which nobody actually comes out clean. And while I can’t say I’d be tempted to hose them down with shower-cleaning solution, I’m thinking that an automated device for cleaning off smelly boys may be The Next Big Thing.
You just watch. It’ll be coming to a Works-For-Me Wednesday soon!
