OK, let’s see a show of hands from those of you who like to scrub your toilets. Not very many, I see. With the Kaboom Scrub Free Toilet Cleaning system, you will rarely need to do it and you won’t need to waste money on the cleaning pucks that go in the tank. That tank water, after it dissolves the pucks, mostly goes through the bowl and out as it whooshes away the contents. The bowl fills up with untreated water and the tank fills up again to mostly just shrink your puck. The little Kaboom container, however, goes in between where the water comes in and the bowl, so it delivers the treated water right around the sides and directly down into the bowl. It’s a snap to install; you only have to connect two little hoses and when you need refills, they go right in after you unscrew the little plastic cap. The key is to get your bowl sparkling when you clean it for what should be the last time in a long while.

Want more luxury? It’s not exactly the same thing, but any discussion of toilet luxury must include mention of the Toto line of toilets and washlets. They are heated, and do all the cleaning and drying that’s necessary after the process, and the more expensive ones, like all good hi-tech products, come with a remote control. They are everywhere in Japan, but have not caught on over here.
