When it comes down to cleanliness, I'm open to try anything and everything. Especially, when it comes down to the toilet, because that deserves special treatment when looking at what goes in there. So when I noticed this product in K-mart it caught my attention.
The first thing I noticed about The Clorox Toilet Wand happened to be the ease of assembly and use. The product comes with the caddy that has a flip open lid that must be opened manually, a toilet wand, and six Clorox applicators. The applicators come in a plastic bag, with each one on top of the other. The bag must be opened and placed inside of the caddy with the opening facing up. This allows easy insertion to the toilet wand. When the applicator is firmly attached you should hear a clicking sound, but it wouldn't be a bad idea to use some rubber gloves and double check, because the last thing you want is for this to go down the toilet. Now the applicators are pretty small, and toilets have 4 in. pipes, so I doubt it will stop up the toilet but you never know. Anyway, I'm hardcore so I use my bare hands. The wand also has a button on it and you can use this when pressing down on the applicator. I recommend doing that as not to ruin the locking mechanism inside by trying to jam the applicator to the wand.
The purpose of this product is to hit those hard to reach areas, that I never had a problem hitting with a regular toilet brush. But oh well, it came in a pretty box so I had to check it out. The applicator does hit those areas very easily due to its octagon shape. The box comes with all of the instructions and precautions such as treatment should it get inside of your eyes.
One thing is for sure the toilet will look clean. While scrubbing, the product emits a blue soap-like substance that will change the water into the same color. It easily erases those brown stains that appear, and depending on the build up, you will see the rest of the mildew in the corners of the toilet break up and run down into the water. But that's one of my problems with this product. I don't only care about looks, I also care about a nice smell that lingers around in the bathroom for a lengthy amount of time. Not only because I want people to know that I'm clean, but bugs like roaches and flies are driven away by that smell, and this product just doesn't give me exactly what I want. The smell is just way too faint.
I'm also not crazy about the once and done thing. The applicators must be thrown away right after use. This may be fine for someone who cleans their toilet only once a week. However, I can't imagine myself doing that. Therefore, these six applicators will go *snaps fingers* like that for me. Cleaning your toilet once or even twice a week will be great for someone who lives alone and never has visitors. But cleaning your toilet only once a week in a family household? I don't believe I could ever do that.

Despite its uses and convenience, I prefer the old school toilet brush with Pine-Sol. Personally, that's exactly what I'm going back to when this product is finished, and I don't think that I'll ever bother with this again. For me, it's decent and that's about it.
The Clorox Toilet Wand Cleaning System Starter Kit consists of a toilet wand, a storage caddy, and 20 Refills.

To remove and discard a used scrubber, simply push a button on the handle of the wand to release the scrubber from the wand. Note: The scrubber is not "flushable"; … more
