Thanks for the link Toot. It was fun to watch the ads!
Your account of your childhood in the countryside reminded of mine, only we didn't live near a town. There was a kilometre from my home to the next house! But I came to live in the city when I was 6. We still have the farm.
Hey Katty! I believe it - I grew up out ion the country with very little. We had one small grocery store - about 4 aisles. We had a one window post office, two public schools, no police, no gas station, no traffic lights, no fast foods, etc. My mother went to the grocery in another town about once every three months or so, and inbetween we did without. I feel so rich here where I am now, as there are so many stores! Don't worry about not being able to get things - we have cleaned for thousands of years without but a fraction of the cleaning things we can now get. And the oldest method still is often the best - plenty of elbow grease!
I too bought one. Love LOVE the sweepa, like the scrubba... havent decided on the swisha.
Mine doesn't quite 'bounce' but because I have been trained to use a harder bristly type toilet brush the swisha seems to not scrub the same way.
and I've also had the thought whether it would work better dry - hard to accomplish in a toilet bowl situation - but that ran through my head one morning.. like the water and cleaner I use makes it too slippery.
I was so hoping it would be able to tackle the hard water stains that occur just under the rim of our bowl - So far not much success, but even my other bristly brush couldn't get them off.
However. I continue to use it. To see if it cleans it enough each swish and swipe -- and right now I'm of the mind set kinda like the shining the sink. I maybe have to scrub the sink with a magic eraser every couple months and get by daily with a rinse and wipe. Maybe the toilet brush will be that way.. every so often I have to use the pumice stone.. but for everyday cleaning it works alright.
I rambled and now I dont know if that made sense. :)
You may be disappointed but a bouncing toilet brush seems like a lot of fun! Pity it doesn't clean! There are some tools I would like to purchase from Flylady, but the cost of shipping makes it too expensive! So, I can't be of help here
I have questions about the rubba swisha. You know, the purple toilet brush that Flylady sells. Well, I bought one, and I tried it out today. I was disappointed because it kept bouncing off of the surface I was trying to clean! Is this because I was pressing too hard? It looked like it wasn't scrubbing much at all. It this normal? What have you experienced?
