Disclosure: I received a ScrubADoozy at no charge to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% honest and mine.
I am a spoiled, pampered little princess. I rely on my diaper sprayer far more than I should. However, at my mother-in-law’s house, I have no diaper sprayer. You’d think that I’d be able to get by without one for a couple of hours on Sunday, right? You’d be wrong. It seems like both of my children enjoy having particularly disgusting poos while there. That’s why I’m in love with my ScrubADoozy.
What’s a ScrubADoozy?
A ScrubADoozy is essentially a miniature fixed wash board. It affixes to the inside of your toilet bowl and gives you a way to scrape off some extra goo without having a spatula lying around your bathroom (which always just grossed me out) or attempting to dunk and flush.
How Do You Install the ScrubADoozy?
You don’t have to be a brain surgeon to install the ScrubADoozy. Clean your toilet. Drain the water from the bowl. Dry it. Peel off the sticker on the back of the ScrubADoozy. Stick it on the inside of the toilet bowl. Leave it alone for 12-24 hours. (Okay, the leaving the toilet alone for that long is easier said than done, but I found that by putting it on just after the kids’ bath time was over, I could go without touching the upstairs toilet for 14 hours.) After that, it’s free to use.
How Do You Use the ScrubADoozy?
If you’re using a pocket diaper, you just pull out the insert and toss them in your wet bag. Then you go ahead and deal with the poo.
Step 1: shake off what you can. I lean towards flushing after that because my children produce things that make me wonder if I need an old priest and a young priest when they visit the grandparents.
Step 2: drag the yucky bit across the water to help moisten the diaper.
Step 3: scrub it against the ScrubADoozy.
Step 4: stuff the less gross diaper in your wet bag and flush the toilet.
Step 5: wash your hands and then wonder what on earth your children ate.
ScrubADoozy vs. Diaper Sprayer
I won’t lie: I use my diaper sprayer a lot. I rinse every diaper, especially the overnight ones. However, a diaper sprayer is around $70 Canadian. The ScrubADoozy is far less expensive than that at about $30. Unlike my diaper sprayer, the ScrubADoozy does not leak. (I’m on my third diaper sprayer.) I don’t have to worry about parts of the ScrubADoozy breaking.
Even better? The ScrubADoozy is made in the USA and was designed by a mom. It’s the epitome of the small mom business that I love to support.
Honestly, if I’d had the ScrubADoozy before I’d had a diaper sprayer, I might have never bothered buying one. I would, however, be more inclined to keep a pair of rubber gloves in the bathroom just because I’m paranoid about ever touching poo. (That being said, I never actually got any poo on my hands using the ScrubADoozy.)
ScrubADoozy in a Nutshell?
If you don’t want a diaper sprayer for whatever reason or are looking for something to put in your camper or spare bathroom, you can’t go wrong with a ScrubADoozy. In fact, I’m thinking about putting a second ScrubADoozy on a board to use for the next Flats Handwashing Challenge. I suspect that using a ScrubADoozy as a fixed wash board would make the Flats Handwashing Challenge much, much easier. I’m considering getting some ScrubADoozy wash boards to distribute with cloth diaper packages for Cloth for a Cause, particularly for the families that will have to hand wash due to lack of laundry facilities.
I absolutely recommend it.
