Yeah, I know, this is totally unlike me to post product reviews, but I hatehateHATE cleaning the bathroom. This just happened to be my mission for the day.
I'm a lazy bitch. I will admit this freely. I do not clean as much as I should. In fact, the Bastard is the one who does most of the cleaning in the house. However, stuff like laundry and bathroom shit usually falls to me. I'm ok with this, because he's a bit of a freak when it comes to dusting and kitchen cleanliness, and if there are 2 things I hate worse than cleaning the bathroom, it's dusting and cleaning the kitchen. Don't know why, it's just how I am.
Anyway, back to the topic at hand. I've decided to start doing a product review thing every know and then because I don't fall in love with products very often. My friend, the SuperJew just happened to recommend this one, so big props to her. She had told me that, upon moving into a house with her previous roommate, she found her bathroom to be a total disgusting mess. So she decided to try Tilex Mold & Mildew, as that's what she needed to get rid of the most.
And it worked. Beautifully.
So one day when I was over at her new (roommate-free) apartment, she relayed this story to me. So, I picked up a bottle on our next grocery trip, and there it sat, unused for quite a while under the bathroom sink. Today, I went to finally clean the bathroom and, upon removing the corner basket from the tub, found a mildewy mess. ICK.
I did exactly what SuperJew told me to do: I sprayed down the corner (probably more than I needed to) and left the room, making sure to turn on the fan. OMG, the fumes are horrendous! I changed the sheets on the bed, threw a load of laundry in the washer, and by the time I returned to the bathroom, the corner was almost completely bare! It was awesome! Despite what SuperJew had told me, I thought that there would at least be some scrubbing, but no, I just had to wipe down the corner and rinse it off!
I immediately wrote a letter to Tilex. Seriously. I really hardly ever do this, but it seemed like the thing to do at the time. The Tilex people will probably think I'm a psychopath getting all excited about fucking mildew remover, but I was just so excited about not having to scrub my bathtub!
So thank you, SuperJew, for the recommendation! And just in case you were wondering, no, Tilex is not paying me anything. I have probably the least-read blog in history. However, if they do want to pay me for endorsing them, they're more than welcome to!
