The Dial Corporation has another winner with their new Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner. The product is unique in the fact that it can spray upside down- the angled neck works right side up as well so now you can reach every nook and cranny your bathroom has to offer.

The nozzle has a flip door that easily converts the nozzle from a spray to a foam. When the screen door is shut, it is a foam. When it is open, it sprays. How easy is that?

Performance
I found that this cleanser can really deliver. The nozzle makes it easy to get up under the toilet rim, removes soap scum from my shower doors, easily cleaned and polished my ceramic tile and made a breeze out of cleaning the garden tub. It even cleaned the countertops, sink and floor gently and quickly. I think my love affair with Scrubbing Bubbles may be coming to an end. Recommended with 5 stars. The only problem I have is deciding what to clean first.

Scent
The formula has a fresh scent. Understated on the bottle, it is amazing to think that such a powerful cleanser can smell so good and the product doesn't irritate eyes or throats- at least it didn't mine. Did I mention how long the scent lasts? The bathroom smells fresh for hours after it is cleaned. I like that.

The spray bottle is very easy to use, with a liquid squirt option and a foam option. the bottle says it sprays upside down - not totally, but it does still spray at the awkward "spray into a toilet bowl" angle. i've used it to clean sinks, toilet bowls and fixtures, bathroom floors, grout, bathtubs and it does a great job on all. it is especially remarkable to see the impact on soap scum in a shower or bathtub. this thing just mows through it. we had rust stains along the edge of a tub - used this and a scrubby and the ring was gone. so it does come with hefty cleaning power.

but seriously, if you clean your bathroom every week or every 3-5 days, do you really need such hefty cleaning power? i'd think not, because this thing comes packed with hefty chemicals. and you can smell them. the spray has a strong chemical smell, layered on with an even stronger cologne like masking fragrance. yuck. i used it in a smaller windowless bathroom, and ran the fan. the fan was running for 24 hours straight, and then we left the bathroom door open just to air it out further. no matter. the bathroom reeked for a good 5 days. and it wasn't just the smell. the bottle says eye irritant. well, it leaves your eyes and nose stinging and watering when cleaning, and after. for all the 5 days or so that the bathroom had these fumes, everytime one of us went in, our eyes burned and stung and watered. not good. we won't be using this again.

Great cleaning formula

By 

from Eastlake, OH

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

I always had great results with the original formula of soft scrub. I somewhat disliked the messiness of squirting it onto a sponge and then cleaning with it, but I always got such great results so I put up with wasting a little bit of the product every time I squirted it. This new spray foam formula is great. Now it is so much easier to spray my tiles and simply wipe away with a paper towel. I feel that I had to use less of this formula to clean just as well as I did with the original formula. I used this inside my toilet bowl. Great results there too.

Performance
Did a great job of removing all the hard water marks from my shower tiles as well as cleaning out the soap scum from my soap dishes. I

Scent
This is very subjective. I personally like to know that my house is clean and I like there to be a clean scent in every room after I clean it. This has a strong somewhat industrial cleaner scent. If you have a sensitivity to cleaning solution scents this may be too strong for you.

This product is great for cleaning the entire bathroom.

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

Soft scrub total bath and bowl cleaner is the only product you will need to get your sinks, toilets, showers and tubs clean and sparkling. It is easy to use. It is not strongly scented. You can use it to clean your sink and faucet fixtures. It will remove tooth paste and other stains from the sink. You can squirt it under the rim of the toilet to get the bowl very clean. It can be used on the seat of the toilet to clean and disinfect as well. You can use it in the tub. It will get rid of the dirty ring left behind after the water of a bath is drained. You can clean the shower stall, fixtures and shower door with this product. It will remove soap scum and mold. Even those hard to reach areas will get clean. It will not streak the tub, shower or shower door. It can be used with a mop to clean the bathroom floor. It is great for the pool house bathroom to remove mold and soap scum from the sink, shower, toilet and floor. It will get rid of the mold that thrives in hot, steamy areas.

Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner works very well.

By 

from Skokie, IL

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner works great. It can be used as a foam or a spray and can be sprayed upside down for elusive locations. The bleach bakes it useful for disinfecting. I use gloves when using this item because of the powerful cleaning chemicals.

Performance
cleans well, very versatile.

Scent
with the bleach, the scent is powerful. This needs to be used in a well ventilated area.

smells bad

By 

from Long Island, NY

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

I bought this when it was on sale as it seemed to be a useful cleaning product. I have to say that the scent of this product is disgusting. The cleaning capability is equal to other products, nothing special. I like my bathroom cleaning products to make the bathroom have a nice clean scent after cleaning, but this product does not leave the bathroom smelling good rather it leaves a very dirty kind of scent. Will not be purchasing again.

Performance
Nothing great, other products are just as good.

Scent
terrible, dirty scent

Best bathroom cleaner

By 

from Newnan, GA

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

I've always been a fan of Soft Scrub products, so when this was introduced I had to try it. I love it. I can clean my entire bathroom quickly with one product. It is not a harsh chemical cleaner that I worry about rinsing off completely. There are very little fumes; in fact, it has a mild smell. Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner provides exactly what I need... and in a bottle that I can use upside down! The strange downside to the bottle: you can use it rightside up or upside down, but it doesn't work well on angles.

This is my go-to product when I'm in a hurry. It removes soap scum, light stains, mild mildew, water spots. I haven't tried it on extreme mildew stains, as I have none, but I don't think it would be strong enough for that. It easily cleans my tub... spray, scrub, rinse. That's it. And it foams a little bit when you spray it, so it sticks to the surface and gets the dirt off better than a cleaner that is just liquid that will drip off quickly.

I really like it!

By 

from Ogden, UT

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

I have tried Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner and I like it pretty well. Its not the BEST, but pretty good. I like the kitchen version of the Soft Scrub Total better. I have to admit that I have not used it for the inside of the toilet, but I have used it on everything else (tub, sink, counter, even the tile floor a little bit)

I really like it for the counter and sink area. It work well on soap scum build up and and on toothpaste stains. I wish it worked a bit better for the tub though. It does not work that well on the buildup in the tub.

It also doesnt work that well when it is sideways. It works fine up or upside down.. but ironically enough, it doesn't spray well at different angles and sideways. Which is pretty inconvenient for the tub.

Bottom line: I like it enough on the counter top and sink area (and even on the tile for cleaning up little messes), that I will keep buying it just to use for that area of the bathroom.

Innovative Bathroom Cleaner

By 

from Marlton, NJ

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

This is a fun new product. The premise is that you can use this product in any direction, including upside down, to clean your entire bathroom. Soft Scrub Total Bath and Bowl cleaner does live up to it's name. I find that I can spray it in any direction on any surface and it cleans to a shine. I've used this product in my tub, shower, sinks, toilet, and even mirrors with great results. I love how you can set the sprayer to a foam for the toilet and tough set in stains. You just let the foam sit on the stain for a couple seconds and it wipes right away. It's pretty cool that I don' t have to lug a toilet cleaner, window cleaner, shower scrubber, and surface cleaner all in to the bathroom and instead I can use just one bottle! The only con I find to this product is the strong scent. Obviously it's not a natural cleaner (which it never claims to be) but the odor is pretty overwhelming and should definitely be used in well ventilated areas. I won't let my son near the bathroom until it airs out since it is pretty strong. Overally I can't argue with the cleaning power because it is very very good, I just wish the odor wasn't as strong.

Soft Scrub Total Bath and Bowl cleaner makes it smell WORSE

By 

from Idaho Falls, ID

Comments about Soft Scrub Total Bath & Bowl Cleaner:

Okay, time for another "mixed reviews" review from me - sorry! There is good and bad in almost every product out there! Alright, first for the good news: I absolutely LOOOOOOOVE how you can clean YOUR ENTIRE BATHROOM with ONE BOTTLE! LOVE!! I love how it cleans the sinks AND the showers AND the toilets - all with one solution in ONE bottle! It's almost too exciting for words!! I also love how it does feel really CLEAN afterwards - you know how with some cleaners it doesn't FEEL any differently after cleaning? Well with this one, I always feel surrounded by cleanliness afterwards :)

Alright, now time for the down side of the Soft Scrub Total Bath and Bowl Cleaner: about 12 hours after cleaning my bathroom, a skunk-like odor starts to permeate and emite from the place! I don't know why!! But it happens EVERY TIME! I wondered if it was perhaps just our master bathroom being weird (it has a tendency to sometimes smell funky for no good reason...), so I tried the product on another bathroom, and while the scent wasn't as strong, I could still smell that faint "Eau de Skunk" smell :P Maybe it's just my hyper-sensitive nose. (?)

It does an EXCELLENT job of cleaning and I LOVE how convenient it is! So see if you have a problem with any possible smells and if not, LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER KNOWING YOU CAN CLEAN YOUR BATHROOM FROM NOW ON WITH ONE BOTTLE!! :D
