Let me help you clean your toilet.

Well, not really. But I’m giving away a product that will.

Yes, the first of my BlogHer 2011 swag giveaways is the Scrubbing Bubbles One Step Toilet Bowl Cleaner. In fact, I’m giving away three of these setups, along with coupons for a free Pine-Sol product.

We saw the Scrubbing Bubbles gadget demonstrated at BlogHer. Not in an actual bathroom, mind you, but in a booth set up with a toilet. You clip a little nozzle over the rim, and twice a day step on a foot pedal that sprays a cleaner all around the bowl.

If you want to know more, just follow the link above.

Incidentally, I am not being paid to promote these items. They were being given away at BlogHer 2011. I got extras thanks to the “swag swap” room, wherein you could dump what you didn’t want and take what you did. That’s why I’ll pick three winners this week.

To win the toilet-bowl cleaner setup and the Pine-Sol:

If you do any (or all!) of these things, please leave separate, additional comments to get credit for each entry.

The deadline is 9 p.m. PDT on Monday, Aug. 15.

Note: The Scrubbing Bubbles coupon expires Aug. 31, so don’t enter if you’re a procrastinator who won’t remember to go to the store before the end of the month.

And: You have until 11:59 p.m. tonight (Friday) to take advantage of extra points by joining Swagbucks. After that, the usual sign-up bonus will apply. The join-Swagbucks contest continues through Aug. 21, though. At this point I’ll be giving out at least one dozen Amazon gift cards; current odds make that a little less than a one-in-four chance of winning. And who knows? I might toss in some extras, because this is fun.

      @More or less clean: Myself, I use a splash of bleach and a hard brush. But this system will make some people very happy, I think.

    I’ll take anything that means not having to touch the toilet!

  4. No, really Donna, you can just come right on down and help clean my toilet! Just kidding. Put my name in the drawing. Thanks for the chance to win this. It hurts to bend over.

  5. Susan R

    Put me in the drawing! And thanks, Donna, for the giveaways and great advice!

  6. That would be a good system for people with a full house and limited time, or someone with limited mobility who finds cleaning difficult!
    Me, I just wash my dishes in a dishpan and use the soapy water to flush the toilet … it must be almost a year since I’ve had to actually hunt down the toilet brush.

  7. @Kate. I like that suggestion. I think I’ll use that if I don’t win the bubble thing :). Enter me in though ;).

  8. Blogher swag is the best! Can’t beat free, full-size, name-brand products! Ok, well..maybe cash. Cash would beat that. But I’m not complaining! Donna helped me scope out a bunch of great freebies while I was there. Never made it to the swag swap room, though. Dang it!
