Not sexy, but necessary

Lord knows I’m never happier than when I can share a really smokin’ deal on cute shoes with you. Or even when there’s a sale that means you can stock up on funny t-shirts for the kids without breaking the bank. But sometimes, we need items that do not light a fire in the shopping center of the brain.

And so, it is with a small amount of embarrassment that I admit to you that I have become a total convert to the Clorox Toilet Wand. I mean, I know, a regular toilet brush and some cleaner is probably more environmentally-friendly than using a disposable head every time, but on the other hand: a disposable head every time means I don’t have something sitting in my bathroom that’s getting all mildewy with toilet juice. So.

I bought my first one about a year ago, and now we have one in almost every bathroom. They work, and I like being able to chuck the head after each scrub. I just checked—because of course I did!—and the first one I got on a “deal” for a little over $6. Well, today at Amazon, the Clorox Toilet Wand with 6 refills is down to just $4.99, plus there’s a clippable $1 coupon, plus you can buy it via Subscribe & Save for additional savings and free shipping. So I just got one more for $3.24 shipped.

(That’s the last bathroom, so I guess I can stop buying them, now.)


  1. Yes! Thanks Mir! (I also love the ease of these!)

  2. You recommended these at some point, and I took advantage of a good Amazon S&S deal to get them. Well, we now have them in 3 of our 4 bathrooms, and my husband was just saying that they’re so easy to use that we should get another one for the 4th. Done! Thanks for the rec and the savings; cleaning the toilets is now a much more regular AND efficient process.

  3. It takes me to Amazon Fresh, which makes me put in a zip code and tells me it’s not available in my area. 🙁

  4. I’m having the same problem with Amazon Fresh. The other listing I found was Prime Pantry.

    • I wonder if they ran out and rerouted that link. Weird.

  5. I’ve always wondered about the draw towards these things. I mean, ok, the head gets tossed away. You’ve still got a stick that was deep in the “toilet juice” holding the scrubber.

    But maybe that’s just me. I’m the same way about the ads for the touchless soap dispensers, too. OK, I didn’t touch the germy soap dispenser…..which was the last thing I was going to do before I washed my hands with the soap I just dispensed, so what was the problem again?

    Logic and advertising are often not compatible. I’m just a bad consumer sometimes. 🙂
