Clorox Toilet Wand Review: Comparing Old & New Version Of Disinfecting Refill Heads

The Clorox toilet wand system is a basically a disposable toilet brush.

To use this product you must first get a starter kit which contains the wand and a certain number of cleaning heads, which are basically little scrubbing discs with toilet cleaner in them.

When you run out of cleaning heads you must buy refills. Each cleaning head is meant to be used only once.

To use it, you click a new toilet cleaning disc onto the wand, dip it in the toilet water to get it wet, and then scrub your toilet bowl. Then, you let it sit for 10 minutes which will disinfect your toilet bowl, and then you flush the toilet.

You CANNOT flush the cleaning head in the toilet, but must instead throw it away in the trash. Fortunately, the wand has a blue release button on it to drop the now dirty disposable disc in the trash, so you don't have to touch it.

If you are squicked out by touching and reusing a toilet brush over and over, this may be the type of product for you.

Of course, if you use it you'll have to frequently buy refills.

Ali Julia shared several pictures comparing the new and old versions of these refill discs, and surprise, surprise, the old version is better than the new version, at least in her opinion.

Here's the pictures comparing both versions:

She said of all three pictures: "The scrub pad on the left is the new (smaller less effective) pad, and the scrub pad on the right is the old model (bigger, better scrubbing material)."

Clorox Toilet Wand Refills Have Gotten Thinner!

by Beth A.

Beth says:

I used to love the Clorox Toilet Wand, but when the refills got thinner I liked them less.

My latest episode is that I bought the refill heads when I had a coupon on sale.

Now they split apart on me while cleaning in the toilet! I don't want them to go down the drain.

I am so disappointed and I say shame on Clorox. Don't buy them!

Taylor says:

Stained my floor
by: Anonymous

I use the Clorox wand toilet bowl cleaners I had some of the blue cleaner get on my vinyl floor and stain it. I can not get the blue color off the floor.

happy with it
by: Anonymous

I use the Clorox Toilet Wand and I'm happy with it or as happy as I can be with any toilet cleaning. It works. The refills are thinner and I've had no problems with them falling apart. When they get wet they puff up a bit and do the job.

I buy them on Amazon, 30 at a time, and they come in a clorox box. They are also a great deal.

"new" toilet wand refills are crap
by: Anonymous

I used the Clorox toilet wand product for years and years very happily, but the new refills are completely unacceptable. They rip off of their little plastic base easily and it's also very easy for them to come off of the wand unexpectedly and end up on their way to the septic system. I have now twice had to roll my sleeves up and retrieve one -- once I was successful and the second time I was not and it will hopefully not cause a back-up.
