Cleaning With Formula 409: Time to Start Doing My Share & Give Away #sprayeverydrop

So, I kind of get off a bit easy around my house. Living with my parents now is much different than when I was a kid. They’re in a better place financially and they live in the nicest house they’ve ever owned. That being said, my mom has a gal who comes to clean every two weeks. That means we just do maintenance around the house.
Formula 409
A gal could get used to this.

My mom used to tell me I needed to marry a rich man because he’d have to give me a maid. I have an even better solution…move back home with the ‘rents! =)

Ok, all kidding aside, I’m not a fan of the daily tasks of cleaning counters, bathrooms, etc. One of the irritating aspects of cleaning is when you’re doing a job and you get to the end of the bottle, but you can’t spray any more out because the tube inside doesn’t suck it up for some goofy reason!

You know what I’m talking about, right? Do you do what I do and turn the bottle every single direction imaginable to see if you can get the last vestiges of cleaner out? And then what do you (well, I) do? End up dumping it out because you need to finish what you’ve started.
Smart Tube Technology
The people at Clorox have done us all a favor and created the Clorox Smart Tube Technology and since I have an awesome partnership with TheMotherhood, I was able to try them out for review! They’ve got this awesome tube that extends down the side/front of the bottle, when you get to the very end, it just keeps sucking up the juice that sits down there.

Now, since I don’t have to clean so much, it would’ve taken me ages to get to the bottom of this Formula 409 bottle. Problem solved, I decided to empty the bottle out until there was just a tiny bit left to give this fandangled idea a workout. Yes, I’m serious when I do these reviews!
Formula 409 Empty
I sprayed and sprayed (had to dump out more) and finally got to the end. I kid you not, I sprayed until there was only maybe residue left in the bottle. I shook it around and didn’t hear anything sloshing inside! It truly used the last drop of cleaner from the bottle! It does what it says it’ll do! Gotta love that!

I’ve used Formula 409 since I was a kid because it’s what my mom always used for her cleaning. Now I’ll get to use it to the very last drop!

Clorox just launched a new coupon on their site. When you watch the quick video about the spray bottle's "makeover" you get a $1 coupon. If you share the video on Facebook or Twitter, you get a $1.50 coupon. How cool is that?! I’m all for saving more money. =)

I usually pour it in the new one I have. If the new one is too full I just keep the old one by it until there is room.
