Clean Reach is a uniquely designed tool meant to make cleaning easier. By offering an extendable handle on top of which are scrubbing pads like sponges, users can literally extend their reach as they are cleaning. Such extensions mean that you avoid having to climb, reach, or bend over to reach harder to see locations in your bathroom or kitchen. Take the pain out of cleaning with extendable arm tools and see the fresh clean you get.
Total Cost Breakdown
- Lots of Gifts
Clean reach is a special cleaning tool that gives you two extendable handles and six angled, three in one cleaning pads to make cleaning a breeze.
- Stay Clean
The unit offers easy, touch-free cleaning for your entire house, floor to ceiling. It will clean effectively without you having to get your hands dirty or expose yourself to chemicals.
- Ergonomic Design
The handle is an ergonomic design while the pads are non-scratching and designed to right into tight spaces.
- Good for Arthritis
This unit, and all similarly designed units, are ideally suited for those who have serious pain or arthritis. A great deal of cleaning requires bending over or being on hands and knees to reach difficult places. Rather than doing that, exacerbating pain, this unit offers something much easier. Said unit keeps things simple by giving you an extendable arm to reach in places you would otherwise have to stretch to achieve. By alleviating bending or kneeling, it makes cleaner better for those who have knee pain, back problems, or arthritis.
- Inaccurate Claims
It is claimed that this unit can scrub each part of your bathroom without bending, every inch to be exact. However, such a claim really cannot be made by the company without knowing the size of your bathroom.
- Shorter Handle
Compared to similar models, the extendable handle length of only 36 inches falls, literally, short of what other companies have to offer.
- No Replacement Pads
Replacement pads are not even for sale. So once your pads wear out, you will have to buy an entirely new set, including the handle.
Tips & Tricks
- Short and Tall People
Even if you are a tall person, bear in mind that the handle reach is an important factor. Your height means you might have to bend still, just downward, if you want to reach areas closer to the ground. Lots of taller people only think of reaching upward, and they argue that such a tool is not necessary. However, a longer extendable handle gives shorter individuals the chance to reach up while taller individuals the chance to reach down without bending.
How It Works
Clean Reach has a turquoise and blue handle made from plastic. It is just shy of sixteen inches long in the standard mode. There are triangle shaped bases for each sponge attachment. Sponges can be used on the scrub side or the poly soft side the same as normal sponges. Poles can be extended to the length you need. This company claims that with the scrub side, you can use the soft edge to clean corners. When you turn it over and use the soft side, you can use it on delicate surfaces like mirrors or windows without scratching. In theory, by using both sides of these cleaning sponges, you can clean hard surfaces like counters, walls, ceilings, floors, and showers. Then you can use the softer side to clean the softer materials in your bathroom or your kitchen like the mirrors, the glass, or shower doors.
How it's Different from Competitors
There are many other extending handle sponges out there which are comparable. The Oxo Good Grip scrubber has an extendable handle that can reach up to 42 inches. On the other end the scrubbing head pivots and is antimicrobial. Scotch-Brite has a non-scratch scrubber which offers an extendable handle, has a hanging loop, and an ergonomic grip. Collections has a shower scrubber with a swivel head, extendable handle, three sponges, but offers no replacement parts. Clorox too has a scrubber with an extendable handle, grip handle, and a hanging loop. Miles Kimball offers a long tile scrubber which reaches up to 55 inches and has a wider brush. None of these options look or function exactly the same way that the Clean Reach does. There are also similar sponges that can be used by hand but they lack the extendable arm of Clean Reach.
With this unit you save time cleaning insofar as you can get a lot more done without having to crawl or angle yourself into tighter spaces. For the harder to reach spots, like places behind the toilet, in between a sink and a counter top, or high along the ceiling, you need only one unit. This single unit gives you the chance to do all of that without having to change to multiple tools. It also alleviates having to take the time to get ladders, steps, or crawl down on hands and knees. By alleviating this time you can get cleaning done faster.
This unit saves you money by replacing multiple cleaning tools. Rather than purchasing lots of cleaning gloves, sponges, rags, and mopping tools, this unit can do all of that on your behalf.
- Spin Brushes
The Hurricane Spin Scrubber or Turbo Scrub are a better option. They both have a longer handle, spinning heads, and uses power to really break up dirt and grim. These use rechargeable batteries to spin the head at roughly 300 RPM to rinse, clean, and rinse again any spot in just thirty seconds. The torque is what turns the brushes, and each brush has flexible bristles designed to reach into cracks and crevices the way a generic sponge design could no.
What’s more, these units are meant for use throughout the entire house, on all surfaces, and even outdoors. Clean reach cannot be used outside and is only advertised as a unit for cleaning your bathroom or kitchen.
It seems that this brush is not necessarily the best investment for overall improvement to your cleaning. Instead, it would really only be useful for lighter cleaning, something like gently scrubbing in between thorough cleaning. Reason being, even in the advertisement on the website you see that once pressure is placed on the unit, the extended handle starts to bend.
If this unit is bending under light pressure, it stands to reason that it would not be helpful when trying to heavily scrub away tougher dirt and grim. There are alternatives that run on electricity or batteries designed with similar extendable handles but meant for heavy duty cleaning.
