Tillswall Scrubber


 
Several of you have asked about my new scrubber so I thought I would give you a rundown.  Here's the scrubber with all the attachments.  I showed the scrubber itself with the wand extended. The metal extension can go back in and you have a shorter scrubber.  I used it today and it did a great job but there are drawbacks.  One, the minute you hit the floor with it you have to hold on or it will get away from you! LOL!  Although you can dip it into a bucket with your cleaning solution (not deep though) I decided to mix up some Dawn (just a little) and vinegar and put it in a spray bottle.  I sprayed an area and then used the scrubber.  It cleans great but you have to have something to wipe it up with or the dirt just stays there with the liquid and will dry on your floor again.  I was not prepared for that so I just grabbed some rags and got down on my hands and knees and wiped it all up.  Getting down on my hands and knees was what I was trying to avoid! I  have since thought I will use my mop which was just a pad that attached to the bottom with velcro and it had a bottle attached that I filled with the same solution of vinegar and Dawn (just a few drops).  So, now I will use the mop without wetting it to "dry" the floor.  I'm hoping that works.  I like the scrubber because I can use it to really scrub whereas the mops just seem to push the dirt around and I felt I had to get down on my hands and knees to do a decent job.  I need to dig up my knee pads too!  I can use this on carpet also and I love the corner attachment.  It also came with an adhesive hook so you can hang the scrubber up.  I'll have to get a bag for the attachments.  But for $70 it seems to do what it is intended to do.  I got it through Amazon. Maybe it would be cheaper to hire a cleaning person! LOL!

I'll keep you informed as I use it more.  It did a great job scrubbing my bathroom floor and it was dirty as I use hairspray and it lands on the floor....I wish I didn't need to use hairspray but I have a hairstyle that defies gravity so it's sort of a necessity but it does make  a mess of my bathroom floor!

We had a storm come through last night and this morning, and now it is only 64 F here!  Yippee!  Fall showed up right on time! I did some laundry, made a menu, grocery list, and ordered groceries to pick up tomorrow.  I also called a fireplace store here in town and got the name of 3 chimney sweeps!  PTL!

It's been a productive week so far.  I hope it keeps  up!

Happy Trails!!!

  1. Sounds like a good thing. I use mostly Mr Clean Scrub pads and yes you have to wipe up the dirt with them too. I sit on my butt and scrub:) Cool here too!

  2. I knitted some pads that fit on my scrubber. They work fairly well. I'm glad to hear all about your new toy. I'm always trying to find something that will make life easier.
    Fall arrived here today too. It was 51F this morning and supposed to be 45F tonight. I love it! Windows open and cool air. Ahhhh!
    Blessings,

  3. Oh man. I am looking for something so that I won't need to be on my hands and knees, too. I had higher hopes for this gadget.

  4. Thank you for telling us more about your scrubber. I really like the idea of the extension wand. I'm hoping for way to scrub the shower floor without getting down on my knees - but mostly because my wrists can take much scrubbing. I don't know why my wrists have become so weak. Do you think it's all the crocheting?!?

  5. I could just imagine your scrubber taking off with you! I have a steam floor mop that I absolutely adore. It is so easy and really cleans the floor. Plus, it is powered by me, so is verrrry slow, LOL!
