ScrubADoozy Review

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.

ScrubADoozy Review (And a Giveaway!)

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.

  5. If I had this, my diaper dunking days would be much happier – and cleaner 🙂

  6. very interesting. I wonder if it would get off hard water stains

    • Nah, it’s just a washboard for scrubbing off poo. If you have hard water stains on your diapers, then you should try RLR and consider using Calgon in your wash routine.

  7. With just a little different toilet cleaning routine (i.e. not using a brush), the scrubadoozy looks like to be a great minimal effort product for cleaning solids off cloth diapers! It’s on my wishlist…

  8. Thank you for the awesome review!!! Just an FYI: the ScrubADoozy is only $18 + shipping — as per the website http://www.scrubadoozy.com.
    Blessings and happy scrubbing!

    • It’s a great product! (I went with the $30 because $18 is listed as the sale price… this way it’s always at least correct if not outright less at the time.) Seriously, it’s pretty darned innovative.

    awesome!! ingenious… I didn’t even think of the fact that you don’t have to spray water every which way in order to clean diapers better than dunk n swishing…

  10. Heather Lucas says:

    I learned that you leave it in the toliet all the time. Only problem I could for see is someone using the toliet and it being messy and stuck on the actual product. lol

  11. This looks like it would be a great alternative to a sprayer. Our toilet doesn’t make attaching a sprayer easy… Something to do with the pipes.

  12. Jessica Allard says:

    Amazing product, would love to try one 🙂

  13. Even though you mention it as well, I LOVE seeing “Made in the USA”! I’m trying to do/be better about buying from USA/North America.

  14. I’m a mom to be, so I’m still doing my diaper sprayer research, this might be a great alternative! Does the sticky really last?

    • Well, it has so far. 🙂

    • Erika Watkins says:

      I have had one in use for well over a year and it stayed put the whole time. I followed the recommendations with installation (for the most part – dried toilet and didn’t use after applying for 12+ hours) and it has held up great no edges lifting or anything. Removes cleanly too when diapering is done. 🙂

  15. So excited. I hadn’t bought a sprayer because I could justify the price, but this is totally affordable! Would love to win it of course. 😉

  16. is it reusable after u remove it or do u have to buy another one if u move somewhere? is it removable at all? lol

    • I’m not actually sure since I never moved mine. 🙂 The good news is that it’s fairly cheap! I’ll have to remember to ask tomorrow. 🙂

  17. This looks so awesome! It would be a great addition to my sprayer!
