Well, this is sort of embarrassing, but I’m getting ahead of myself. I’ll humiliate myself for your amusement in just a moment. Let’s start with the sales pitch on the product’s box:
Break free from the drudgery of toilet cleaning with the new Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner. It cleans your toilet three times a day, tackling unsightly toilet rings, hard-water marks, limescale and other stains. Best of all, it’s completely automatic, so it does the dirty work for you.
So reads the promotional material for the new Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Now I am all for anything that makes household chores easier, especially those involving the inside of a toilet bowl. As a new daddy I do quite enough poo cleanup already. Yes, real men do change diapers. This product is great; what I find disconcerting, however, is how well the mad men at whatever ad agency came up with this product know me.Here’s what I mean: The installation instructions include a warning that the “built-in sensor that prevents spraying while the toilet is in use may not work if one is seated on the toilet for 30 minutes or more.” This warning is accompanied by a drawing of a man reading on the toilet. I resemble that remark! [blush] As for the Scrubbing Bubbles® Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner, my wife installed it and it’s working great… during daddy’s non reading time.
*Note: This is not an ad and I’m in no way compensated for this post or the resulting embarrassment it will surely cause me. If you need me I’ll be in the bathroom.
Go ahead… rub it in. Leave a comment!
