Best Bathtub Scrubber For 2020 – TOP 3 Manual/Traditional Scrubbers:
Now that you’ve seen an overview of the best bathtub scrubbers (power scrubbing and manual scrubbers), if you still want more details and what we think of each one, continue reading the information that follows.
1. The Homitt Electric Spin Scrubber
This scrubber is our first choice as the best bathtub scrubber available. One of the reasons we like it so much is that it includes 4 different detachable head sizes: an extra-wide flat brush, a corner head brush, a round head brush, and a small head brush. Each one serves to clean a particular area better. This scrubber can be used to clean more than just your bathtub.
Another thing we really liked about this scrubber is that it charges extremely fast and it can be used for a longer time compared to other scrubbers on the market. While other power scrubbers can take up to 7 hours to charge, the Homitt can charge in about 3.5 hours. It can also be used up to 50 minutes as opposed to other scrubbers that last only 30 minutes.

- It comes with 4 replaceable brush heads

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)
Can I use an electric or battery operated scrubber with any cleaning products?
It depends on which brand name you’ve purchased, however, most cleaning brushes can be used with any bath and tub cleaner. Therefore, more than likely, they are safe to use with any power scrubber. Just be cautious of what cleaning product you use on your tub so as not to damage your tub. This has nothing to do with the usage of a power scrubber.
Do the bathroom power scrubbers require maintenance?
The only real maintenance that they need is to make sure to wash the scrubber bristles with soap and water for enhanced durability after each use.
How often do I need to change and replace the power scrubber brushes?
This all depends on the make and particular model that you purchase. Some power scrubbers last quite long (up to one year) without having to change the brushes while others need to be replaced more often (every few months). How often you need to change and replace the brushes will also depend on how often you use your bathroom power scrubber.
If want to get rid of stubborn stains manually, I also highly recommend using magic erasers. They work great! I tried using the magic erasers from the dollar store but they don’t work as good! You have to use the real, original magic erasers from Mr. Clean which you can find here.
