S.C. Johnson Compliment - Showers Of Praise
LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY -- My friend that asked me to post the Domino's review, also sent me this tidbit. I keep telling him he needs to sign up for this site, but maybe he's just shy. Here is what he has to say about this product.
A year or so ago, my wife had our master bath remodeled – out with the old, and in with the new, Italian marble tile floor to ceiling. Really grand, it kinda gives you the feeling of a Roman bath or at least a weekend at Caesars where hopefully you didn’t get too drunk winning 800.00 at roulette staying up all night, then lose half of it back guzzling free Jack Daniels tipping the hot waitress too much only to be dragged off to bed by a wife who’s irritated you might have insulted some Asian hotel guests whilst trying to give them directions in your best Chinese accent, ah-so.
The shower and tile looked awesome until my water softener went out a month or so ago – now the dreaded grunge of hard water stains and soap scum have made their ugly appearance and it’s really dragged down the appearance of my little slice of Roman Empire. I’m putting off replacing the water softener until my neighbor the plumber returns from his trip around the world – he said it’d take 80 days. I tried old fashioned “elbow grease” and a scrub brush along with some pretty toxic chemicals to clean up my shower – why is it we “wash-up” but also “scrub down” anyways? Nothing worked, that powdery white soap and water stains just wouldn’t budge!
Saw a TV spot for “Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer” and thought to myself, “self, give that a try, it’s likely not gonna work but would be neat to see if there really ARE little bubbles with scrub brushes coming out of that can as they are on TV – and says you don’t have to do anything but watch!” Always up for a good show, I bought this can of Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer and headed back to Italy. Like any guy, I didn’t read the directions, gave the can a good shake and started spraying.
The stuff comes spritzing out of the can in a mist which initially disappointed me – no little bubbles with brushes for feet – but quickly turns into a thick foam that coats everything including you if you’re not careful where you’re aiming it. I sprayed and sprayed the entire shower including the glass doors which you almost couldn’t see through anymore because of the buildup. I stepped out of the shower to the din of what only could be described as bacon frying in my shower. The foam was really making a bubbling sound that if not cleaning was sure putting up a good fight!
I walked away to let the battle rage, coming back a ½ hour later wondering who had won! To my delight the Scrubbing Bubbles Foamer had really done a nice job – had cut that crud down from the doors, the walls, the cracks and crevices. The chrome sparkled, the tile gleamed and I’m left with a pleasant scent instead of that toxic chemical smell. I truly couldn’t believe it worked so well, and with so little effort on my part – believe me when I tell somebody “it’s the least I can do” for them, I mean it.
Would I say this fabulous product for under 5 bucks did a 100% perfect job? No. There were a couple of spots I had to touch up with a brush. But hey, that’s okay by me, even if the little guys with brushes for feet didn’t show up and do a dance. Great product and good job on a nasty task that nobody wants any part of - which will see me through until Phileas Fogg gets around to helping me replace my water softener.
