Clorox Toilet Cleaning System

I've been using the Clorox toilet cleaning system for a couple of weeks, and I already love the way it cleans. I had posted a while back that I had started using vinegar to clean the hard water from the toilet rim along with Lime Away. Well, I wanted to try this Clorox system to try to remove stains that are building up on the bottom of the toilet bowls, because our toilets are 28 years old, and that happens. It's not gross, but I thought I should start trying to nip that now before it does get gross. And to do that I need to get just a tad deeper into the bowl than I can get with a toilet brush. So, I bought this Clorox kit. I did NOT put the vinegar in the toilet bowl when using these cleaning pads, because you aren't supposed to mix vinegar and bleach.

It turns out, the deeper area of the bowl is rough and not coated with ceramic like the upper section of the toilet bowl is, which caused the cleaning head to start separating from the plastic piece it was attached to. So, this system didn't work for me with my mission to clean deeper. Enough of the cleaning head remained intact, so I moved on and used it to clean the ceramic section of the bowl. It worked extremely better than the vinegar did! I was amazed at how much hard water build up came out from under the rim. My husband just cleaned out nearly 28 years of that build up in July of this year (2023), and I've been using the Lime Away and vinegar every week since. Wow! 

So, I can't really recommend the Lime Away and vinegar combo now that I've used this Clorox toilet cleaning system. I did spray some Lime Away under the rim before I used the system, so it may have helped a little. I just know that tons of that hard water build up came off with the Clorox system. There is tons of cleaner in that little cleaning pad. So, I scrubbed, flushed, and used the same cleaning pad again to remove the rest of the loosened build up from under the rim.

I highly recommend this product. Our toilets were literally sparkling after using these cleaning pads on them. My only caution is to NOT use it to clean that deeper portion of the toilet bowl, because the pad may come loose from the connected section that's attached to the wand. Keep an eye out for that to happen anyway, because these are not flushable cleaning pads. 

The pad easily drops into the waste basket with the push button on the front of the wand. Wipe the wand off with toilet paper and easily disinfect with a Clorox wipe before placing it in the holder on the front of the caddy. The section of the caddy with the lid is to hold your cleaning pads. Very convenient. No more transferring germs from toilet to toilet with a toilet brush or storing germs on a toilet brush inside the bathroom closet. 

Again, I'm not being paid for this product review. Just some friendly tips and advice if you've been thinking about using this system.

I'm still wondering how I can clean that bottom section of the toilet bowl without sticking my hands in there - even with gloves on. Maybe a bottle brush or sponge from the Dollar Tree? I'll let you know what I come up with. Or do you have a tried and true way that has worked for you? Let us know in the comments below.

Worry is Waste

How many moments do we waste worrying about things we aren't able to control? I know I've had my fair share of moments like that. I won't say that I never worry anymore. Human nature is to worry. But I worry much less these days, because I trust God to take care of all my needs and problems. According to my NLT study Bible, worrying leads to immobilization, but concern leads us to action. I like that they have shown me the difference between worry and concern. Let's, now, read today's Scripture about the impacts of worry and the effects of trusting God from Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Matthew 6:25-34 says, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are? Can all your

Buying and Care Tips for Outdoor Plants

These first  2 tips came to mind when I was buying 4 new outdoor deck plants this past week at Lowe's. First of all, at least at the Lowe's I visited, all of their hanging basket flowers were badly wilted and turning brown. I'll have to say, that was a first. All of their plants usually look amazing. I'm not sure if it's because of all the local rainfall, and maybe they haven't been watering them regularly, and that was why they looked so shabby. Because typically, someone would be watering the flowers at about the time we arrived; always have been in the past, and no one was doing that on the day we visited earlier this week. Or maybe they've let Mother Nature overwater them. I don't know. Regardless of the reason, I passed on buying hanging basket flowers. I'm the type of person who really needs to start with healthy flowers. Therefore, I brought home 4 in regular pots, because they all looked healthy. So, my first tip is to pay attention to the

Being God's Ambassador: Meditation 4

Let's prepare to meditate . Start playing your relaxing sounds/music on another device if you like accompaniment with meditation. With your tissues and water beside you, get in a comfortable sitting position. Close your eyes if you'd like. Now, relax your entire body, starting with your forehead, between your eyebrows, your jaws, your neck and shoulders, your arms and legs. Feel the tension release as you relax. Allow the stomach and shoulders to naturally rise and fall as you slowly breathe in and breathe out. Today's meditation affirmation is "I am created in the image of God. He provides everything I need to be His ambassador." Let's repeat this affirmation to ourselves as we concentrate on our breathing for a few moments.  Continue your slow, concentrated breathing as I guide you through today's meditation. Listen to Meditation 4 . In Genesis 1:26 NLT (New Living Translation), God said, “Let us make human beings in our image, to be like us.” God made u
