Bzz, Bzz, Bzz: Automatic Shower Cleaner


Today, I received my BzzKit for the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner. I needn't have waited to tell you about the product, though, because we've already been using it for a couple of years on our own. So, now I have a second machine for the kids' bathroom, and I'm excited about that!

I love the Automatic Shower Cleaner. It really works! Those of you who know me, or frequently read this blog, know that I am not a fan of cleaning. I don't like to do it, and I don't do it often. I used to, B.C. (before children), but now if I want a sparkling clean house, I would be spending my whole life doing nothing but that.

Anyway, you just hang the Shower Cleaner on the shower nozzle, and press the blue button when you're done showering. It beeps for 15 seconds and then sprays down the entire shower and curtain/door with cleanser, which you don't have to rinse off (although it's recommended that  do rinse it off every so often - but I never have and it's fine).

That's it! Clean shower! If you start off with a clean shower, it keeps it clean for you, so you NEVER have to go in there and scrub again. If you start off with a yucky shower, it takes 14-21 days to get it clean, and then you NEVER have to go in there and scrub again! :D Awesome, right?

You could say I'm a fan.  I just wish they had an Automated House Cleaner that picked up all the toys and then dusted and vacuumed, too. My only complaint is that whenever I insert the refill bottle, a little bit squirts out in my face.

Also in my BzzKit (but not part of the Bzz Campaign): a free package of Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel. It comes with the plunger-like applicator already filled up with cleaning goo, and you just click it onto the inside of your toilet bowl, one notch at a time. The cleaning goo sticks to the bowl and dissolves after a week, cleaning the whole time. So, I tried it out.

Obviously, I don't know how well it keeps the bowl clean yet, as it's only been a few hours, but I will say that it seems pretty well stuck on there, and the clean scent is strong as anything. It was a little difficult to take the applicator up to the next notch, though, but now that I've got the hang of it, it'll probably be easier. I'll have to report back on how well it works.

So, do any of you use the Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower cleaner? If so, what do you think of it?  If not, would you like a coupon for $5 off the $15 MSRP for a starter kit? Let me know in the comments.


Bzzing: Ziploc BIG Bags

100_6942 My latest Bzz Campaign is for Ziploc Big Bags. I've actually had this one for a while, but because of the huge morass that is my desk right now, I don't know whether I've got something to offer you to try them out for yourselves, like coupons for freebies! Sorry about that. If I find them, we'll revisit this product.

Anyway, we have a lot of kids' clothes. A lot. This isn't even the half of them. There are a bunch unfolded here: 100_6943

and here: 100_6944

and that ain't even the half of it. There are tons more in their dressers and closets. It can be really challenging to keep up with all the laundry, as I've mentioned here time and again!

Enter Ziploc Big Bags. Just when I needed something to contain all the kids' winter wardrobes, they arrived in my mail. Perfect! They come in three sizes: Large, XL, and XXL, so you can choose the perfect size for your project. They are thicker and heavier than Ziploc Freezer Bags, so they're quite sturdy.

I even used an XXL bag to store and give away all of the latest CARE Packages I had. And there were a ton - over three dozen!

So they're really useful for all kinds of storage.  I will say this, if you over-fill the bags, they tend to open at the handle when you lift them up, and your fake nails, if ya got 'em, can go right through the sides. They're not a hundred percent perfect.  But don't overfill them, and you're golden!


WFMW: Oust!

Wfmwsmall With all the sickness that's been spread around here lately, it's all I can do to keep the germs at bay, even with Barbara coming to clean the house.  So my latest Bzz Kit came just in time yesterday: it's for Oust Surface Disinfectant and Air Sanitizer!

Oust Surface & Air kills 99.9% of germs, incluing cold and flu viruses, on hard, non-porous surfaces, and eliminates odors by killing bacteria in the air.

I received two free 12-oz cans of the "Clean Scent" version, and let me tell you, I have been spraying like crazy ever since. Even more today, since my wonderful dog crapped on the carpet, and that is some awful stench! The Oust took the smell right away! (At least, with all of us being so congested, I think it did!)  You can spray all around the air, on doorknobs, toilets, sinks and so on, and I'll tell you a little secret - I don't even wipe it up afterward. I just let it sit there and evaporate. 

The house smells great, and I really do feel better knowing that some more germies are being zapped by Oust.

And now the good part for you: I have five coupons for a free can of Oust Surface & Air to share with my readers!  The first five people to comment specifically asking for a coupon will get one - I'll just respond to you and ask for your mailing address.  Come back later after you've purchased it and let us know how it worked out for you.

Now go back and visit Shannon and see all the other great tips bloggers have left for you today!


Bzz: Kill

First order of business: I don't know if everyone gets the same code, or if this code will only work once (and I've just used it), but try it if you're interested: KAB1-2TH8-FF6T-4JGRDV gets you 12 free 5X7 holiday photo cards at Shutterfly. I just got a dozen New Year's Eve cards for $2.54 s/h.

Second: A new Bzz campaign. First there was the Sonicare Toothbrush. We've had ours for months and love them! (Except the replacement cost for the brush heads, but they last a while.) Now they last even longer, because we just got our free (for being a BzzAgent) Sonicare UV Sanitizer! It kills 99% of germs with a cool UV light system, and it's a better way of storing the brush heads than what we've been doing 'til now (setting them in a standard toothbrush holder, or worse, letting them roll around on the sink together unsupervised, making little baby Sonicares and... well. Sidetracked.) Anyhoo, it's just a 10-minute cycle and can be used with several types of both Sonicare and Oral-B brush heads.

If you're interested, comment me and I'll send you a $5 coupon for your own Sanitizer. If you're not, comment anyway and let me know so I can report the Bzz and get points for more cool campaigns!
