FlyLady's Rubba Scrubba
$5.49 plus shipping
One of the most frustrating things about taking care of our homes is when it seems as though you need a bunch of different cleaning brushes and products to do several things. Recently, we found this rubber brush and discovered how multi-purpose it really is. Kelly went so crazy for it she insisted we had to carry it in the Fly Shop! Here is how Kelly describes FlyLady's Rubba Scrubba:
I have dogs and kids. This means dog hair and crumbs every where, all the time. I have been on a personal mission for years to find out how to get the dog hair completely off the furniture (yes, I know I should train them to not get on the furniture, but they are members of our family, after all...lol). In my search, I came across this rubber brush. It wasn't that expensive so I figured I had nothing to lose (but the dog hair) so I gave it a try. I was so shocked! I had just vacuumed the couches earlier in the day so I was not expecting there to be much of anything left to brush and remove, and it allowed me the chance to get a feel for how it worked. I could not believe how much hair came off the couch; after all, I couldn't see it AND I had just vacuumed that couch! I stood there with it in my hand and tried to figure out why it worked so well, especially when I compared it to other products I had tried in the past. Then it hit me! Think of it this way: If you ever had long hair, you will understand this. If you use a rubber band on your hair to make a ponytail, it is really painful because of how the rubber grabs and pulls the hair. Well, the Rubba Scrubba works the same way! I was so thrilled! Then, as a "sort of" joke, I brushed one of the dogs with it (it resembles a hair brush, so I thought, "why not??!!"). To my surprise, the dog was so happy; I was able to grab all the loose hair on him and it did not hurt him one bit! Over the next few days, I realized the uses of the Rubba Scrubba were endless. I used it as a whisk broom with a dust pan, to scrub the tracks of the shower doors, to go along the baseboards where the carpeting meets the walls; I even used it to wash dishes! And now for the BEST part: Just toss it in the top rack of the dishwasher to sanitize it!! (Please note that extra hot wash temperatures and heated drying is not recommended). I am telling you that this is, hands down, one of the neatest tools I have in my home now! I can use ONE item to do so much! I have decluttered a bunch of sponges, scrubbing brushes and whisk brooms and have replaced them with a Rubba Scrubba. It is amazing! - Kelly
