KABOOM – Save your Kaching on this Karap!
NOBODY hates cleaning out the shower more than I do. NO BODY! But, we all have to do it. It’s part of cleanliness, which as we were all taught is next to Godliness and all the rest of that stuff…
So, nobody could have been happier than me than I noticed an advert on TV for a bathroom tub and tile cleaner that you just sprayed on blue, wait until it turned white then rinse it away. Presto, all your problems and mess go down the drain! Heaven in a can!
Well, a few questions hit me almost immediately:
What does this stuff do to my septic system and the environment…not to mention my plumbing!?
Does it really work or is someone smoking some really good stuff that would have Cheech and Chong up in arms, not to mention up in smoke!
Well, as luck would have it, I just happened by this stuff in the cleaning products aisle at my local BiLo (that’s a grocery store chain in the southeast for those not from around here). Being the curious person that I am and really hating to scrub the tub, I picked up a can…and hit the tub when I got home.
A couple things you need to know before trying this stuff. I’m no scientist, but I really doubt you should be breathing this stuff. Close the door, turn on the fan and THEN spray. Hold your breath while spraying and get out of the room as fast as you can, closing the door behind you. This stuff puts up a very thick presence that frankly I’m not sure is the best stuff to be breathing.
OK, so I sprayed it. It went on blue. It turned white. I rinsed it off…and guess what!? NOTHING HAPPENED TO MY TUB! It was just the same mess I had sprayed a few minutes before! So I tried it again…maybe my soap scum is a higher caliber than that used in the advert. No changes. This Kaboom had just Kabombed my test! Kadisappointed to the KaMAX, was I!
Now, my test isn’t overly scientific, but it’s sufficient for me to take this back on my next trip and request a refund.
I guess the old adage that if it sounds too good to be true, it just might be. So, save yourself some Kaching. Hold off buying the Kaboom, imho it’s Karap!
