@PooltoyWolf But it had to have had residents at one time, right? It also kind of triggers my trypophobia (before the internet I thought that was my own weird repulsion; I was kind of gratified to learn it has a name and is shared by a lot of people!)
I’m buyin these in the hope that I can both clean my ceiling fans & can find replacement pads!! I’ll purchase these later today, so if anyone can let me know of my 2 concerns, Please, do!!
1-Can a ceiling bee cleaned using one of these deals??
2-Can you buy replacement pads & where can they fuckin be found Online?
I’d love to know how many pounds of perpendicular force can be applied before they bend more than 5% of their total length. That would be a pretty good standard measurement for any long handle, wouldn’t it?
I’m just saying because I used to break mop handles all the time because I would try to push down and scrub too hard.
Looks like a rubber rather than a scrubber. With the handle extended, notice how lightly the video models scrub with it. Barely rubbing to clean surfaces that are really already clean. Any pressure and I bet that handle flexes noticeably. It doesn’t take long for the flexing to weaken and break cheap plastic. I’m gonna look at the OXO now.
@mehorama I agree 100% It must have looked like a good idea on paper but once the Chinese got hold of the plans and the price point a telescoping plastic handle was all that fit the bill. However that it isn’t going to cut it.
By it’s very definition scrub: “rub (someone or something) hard so as to clean them, typically with a brush and water.” is what it is. So there you go. Some heavier gauge metal tubing might fit the bill but with the materials used in the handle construction these are dusters at best.
yea, so good for scrubbing a garden tub in those spots where I can’t reach from outside & I’m not getting inside to handle then forget to bring that scrubber into the shower with me in the morning. This will also be great for swishing & swiping thru the “swimming pool” in the chicken coop without having to get in the same space as those tiny little velociraptor assholes…rocky-deep-sorcerer
Awww, what the hell, may as well make my VMP earn it’s keep. Thinking these will work OK to ‘scrub’ the algae off the sides of the fish pond in the front yard. If need be I can modify/re-design the handle to make it more rigid.
OK, got mine yesterday but didn’t find them on the porch until this AM.
Yep, these are pretty ‘bendy’ when extended but for my purposes I think they will be fine
Scrubber heads are held in place with velcro. Haven’t tried them out yet to see how well they hold on.
Handle actually has a locking mechanism of sorts as it extends, so not sure if that is a new/updated feature, or if the reviews that said there was no provision for keeping the handle extended are correct.
and lastly: got these YESTERDAY which given the PB shipping fiasco and blowback amounted to a radical improvement with a 7 day order to delivery window.
