found an easy way to scrub the floors
Don't know why I didn't think of this sooner. I bought a scrub brush with a long handle to clean the tubs and showers with. Tired of trying to bend and reach. The bathroom floors really need to be scrubed and getting down and up all the time is no picnic. I got the bright idea to try the scrub brush. It works great! :woohoo: Will buy another one to replace it for the tub & showers. It will even reach behind the toilet and scrub that really well. No more getting up and down and being on my knees. At least I can keep the floors scrubed now. Just need a good waxing mop. Anyone know of any?

I use that Mr.Clean thingy with the ultra long handle, and I also use the Clorox bath/tub scrubber with the handle. I can't bend over to clean the tub and those things are lifesavers. Also, the swiffer wetjet is a GODSEND to me...no more wringing the mop for me!*IC-- Summer 2004; PFD--October 2005
*Fibro--Fall 2000; CFS-- Fall 2000
*MPS--Fall 2000; Crohn's disease-- 1997*IBS,GERD, *Migraines, hypothyroidism, GYN problems *Degenerative Disc Disease/scoliosis
Total Abdominal Hysterectomy--adenomyosis--9\08
Colostomy surgery due to rupture of lower large intestine (sigmoid colon) ---4\18\09--Had peritonitis, almost died after surgery as I was very sick. Learning to deal with that and get healthy enough for *possible* reconnect surgery January of 2010...if not this surgery saved my life, so I can, and will live with it....happily!

The Swiffer WetJet IS amazing And, I too use the Clorox thing with the long handle for tubs and showers. Sometimes, I even use this thing called a Husband, but that thing is on the fritz half the time LOL!!!!****
*Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
*Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
*Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
*Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).

LOL Jen, my hubby is on the fritz most of the time also. Maybe they just need a belt tightened or something.
Thanks for the new cleaning tip.

I have a "thing called a Son" but I think he is on strike now that he is working full time!! He refuses to clean their (his & his brother's) bathroom and boy, is it a mess every week!! My friend got me a scrub brush and this orange glo that does wonders on the tub (found out its good for just about anything!)

I use Mr Bubbles to clean the tub and shower, but it seems to eat up the caulk around the tub. What's up with that. I heard something about using vingar and water to clean the shower panel, has anyone heard of this?

You guys need to try the shower cleaner I have. It is Scrubbing Bubbles Automatic Shower Cleaner, anyway you hang the solution in the shower and it is automated. You just press a button when you are done showering and Voila! the shower is all clean and shiny. I very seldom scrub anymore, it takes a few times of using it before you can tell a difference.
Who would have thought the IC support could have such good ideas on various topics????

RobinD-I thought about buying that. Does it really work that good?
Wetjet, YES! YES! YES! I bought one not to long after that came out. I also have the dry one for wood flooring and I bought the battery operated on with the dry swiffer on the back sweeper. I thought about buying the clorox brush but the one I bought was cheaper and I'm a cheap skate.
Trishann, Kaboom works great at getting dirt and lime off and it won't eat any of the caulking. Plus it's safe to use. No harsh chemicals. I use that all the time. I have hard hard water.
I think we IC'ers have to come up with ways to clean that are easier. Someone should write a book. Who's going to start it?

Thank you Waterflow, I will have to try it. This subject about how to make it easier to clean things is great. I don't know where you come up with these great ideas, but thanks for sharing it with us.
Sending hugs, Trishann
