Rubbermaid Clean and Dry Plunger
This is sort of a strange review, but I have to tell you a secret. I hate plungers. They make me think of very dirty, messy things that I run away from. The kinds of things that I would just pretend weren’t happening in the bathroom because I didn’t want to splash dirty, stinky ‘water’ all over myself and the floor, so instead I would go pretend to be asleep. The point of this secret? To let you know how much the Rubbermaid Clean and Dry Plunger changed my bathroom floor’s life. Seriously, this isn’t a joke. My floor thanks Rubbermaid.

There really is nothing too extraordinary in the shape of this plunger, in terms of comparing it to those weird accordion shaped ones we see today. It looks like one of those good ole-fashioned rust colored ones you find in every poor college student’s home. You know the one. People just buy it because they occasionally need it, but are too aggravated at what they are buying to spend more than a few bucks on it. Yea, I’ve been there. So like I said, nothing too awesome about the shape. The awesomeness here can be found on the head of this plunger. Or dome, or suction cup…I’m not really 100% sure what to call that thing. We’ll call it the head. So the head of the plunger- get ready for this- is coated in NeverWet nanotech coating. Yeah, you heard me right. Nanotechnology being used for plunger coatings people! Talk about fancy!
This stuff is so great too! Now, I promise I didn’t actually make very terrible things happen in the bathroom to test this out. I simply dipped the head of the plunger into the toilet, and surprisingly watched as the water was literally beaded up and rolled off instantly! It looked like my car’s windshield after I put Rain-X on it. And as you can imagine, not only does this avoid messes made by excess water dripping on the floor after use, but it pretty effectively repels germs and…other things…as well. We even poured some honey on it (I’m not a weirdo- the user manual said we could), and it just rolled right off!
There is one caveat to this nifty plunger, however. You’re really not supposed to touch the head of it. I’m told that the nanotech coating can be rubbed off it you mess with it too much. They told me this after I ran around the house stabbing people in the bum with it, and after my boyfriend used it as a hat. Clearly this was right after we unpacked it, but still. So, be careful with the head/dome-suction cup thingy!
You can find this super cool plunger at Meijer, The Home Depot, Menards, Target, Wal-Mart, and Rubbermaid.com for around $12.99, in the cleaning aisle, the plumbing aisle, or in a display.
