Cleaning with Clorox Smart Tube Technology

With two little kids and a messy spouse, sometimes it feels like I spend most of my day cleaning. Vacuuming, sweeping, wiping down counters, picking up dirty laundry, putting away toys, doing the dishes… it never ends! While I may be on my own during the week when my dear husband is working and the kids are at school, I make sure to save the deep cleaning for Sundays, when I can get my kids to help. I wouldn’t want them to miss out! 😉 This is when I really get my hands dirty, pulling out my big tub of cleaning supplies so I can tackle the bathrooms, kitchen, and playroom, the messiest rooms in the house.

Clorox is one of those trusted brands that I’ve been using for as long as I can remember. I mean, it’s been around for 100 years so I’m sure we’ve all used it at one time or another! (And our mamas and grandmas, too!)Its namesake bleach is probably the most popular product, but I also use Clorox Bleach Gel, Formula 409, and Tilex Bathroom Cleaner, among other things. My husband, a contractor, swears by Clorox Clean-Up. He’s always stealing my bottle!

Speaking of bottles, my biggest frustration is when a spray bottle stops working. This usually happens when there’s just a little of the cleaner left, but sometimes the sprayer just gets clogged up or the trigger breaks. After a vain attempt at fixing it, I end up just taking the top off and pouring the liquid out directly. Or throwing it away. Ugh. It’s a big waste of time.

In developing their new Smart Tube Technology, Clorox decided to do something about this little problem. Now there’s a built-in tube that reaches all the way to the bottom of the bottle, which gives you the freedom from frustrating workarounds to get the last bit of product. The satisfaction of spraying every last drop…. ahhh. No more tilting, tipping, unscrewing, shaking, or pouring will make cleaning a little bit easier! As for the trigger problem, spray bottles equipped with Smart Tube Technology also feature a new, more durable trigger that provides better coverage and has a smoother pull so it should take less effort to dispense the cleaner. I haven’t quite gotten to the bottom of my bottle yet, but I can tell you that it’s the same great formula as always, and compared to older products, the new trigger is sleeker, and does take less effort, seemingly spraying better, too. You can see the difference in the bottles in the photo below. The built-in Smart Tube is visible in the new bottle, so you’ll be able to see that you really do use every last drop!

    I just moved into an old apartment that wasn’t cleaned before I moved in. I am having to clean everything including the walls and it is extremely frustrating.

    We like to metal detect so I have to deal with grass and dirt stains on the knees very often. Thanks for the chance.

  4. Donna Cheatle says

    My biggest frustration is the bathtub. It always seems like the darn thing needs scrubbed. Within a day of me scrubbing it, it looks grungy again

  5. Tari Lawson says

    My biggest cleaning frustration is my master bath shower. It just never seems to come completely clean.

    that the grandkids aren’t old enough yet to understand their contribution to the mess. I try to go with the flow but it gets frustrating.

  7. Pauline M says

    For me its the bathroom, since there is only one in my condo, it gets dirty really fast!

  8. Kathleen M Smith says

    Getting the shower and tub clean, not sure if it is the water or what – have tried so many cleaners and scrub it often
