I’m an old bachelor who, despite having plenty of time on his hands, doesn’t spend a lot of it housecleaning. My robotic vacuum keeps the main floor tidy and, every so often, I’ll lug the mop upstairs to deal with the upper hallway and bedrooms. Perhaps I’ll dust and give the bathroom a quick scrub if visitors are expected.
At first glance, my house appears clean. Then you might notice a few darkened floor tiles in areas my robotic vacuum is unable to reach. Even if you missed this, you would not be impressed by the state of my kitchen appliances and bathroom.
While my house required a major cleanup, I had neither the inclination nor the energy to crouch down with a wet and smelly scrub brush. Instead, I picked up a cordless spin scrubber.
The package includes a Tilswall spin scrubber, four specially designed brushes, a USB charging cable, a mounting peg, and a user’s manual.
This scrubber is 27 inches long but may be extended to 41 inches. The bottom portion is waterproof and can be swiveled 80 degrees, allowing for increased maneuverability within tight areas.
A 4000mAh rechargeable battery powers an electric motor that spins the fitted brush at 300RPM. This scrubber is equipped with a top-mounted lanyard used to hang the device from its mounting peg.

Tilswall is trademarked by the Shenzhen Tilswall Innovation Technology Co. This company specializes in designing durable, aesthetic, lightweight, and safe power tools for professional users and DIY enthusiasts.
This Tilswall product enjoys three advantages over the traditional scrub brush. It is unnecessary to scrub physically because its brush is powered by an electric motor that turns at 300 revolutions per minute.
A second benefit involves leverage. The length of this tool allows the use of both hands when applying pressure.
The Tilswall scrubber can be extended to a length of 41 inches, negating the need to crouch on hands and knees when scrubbing a floor.

The Fridge Test
I purchased a used and extremely filthy fridge several months ago, and, sadly, my sporadic attempts to clean it have not proved entirely succeeded.
I sprayed the front of the fridge with a bathroom cleaner. Then I fitted the small flat brush to my new scrubber. After five minutes of work, the appliance gleamed. A layer of ingrained dirt still discolors the fridge’s handle, but a few repeated scrubbings should fix this problem.
The Discolored Tile Test
My kitchen floor is a mess. I’ve applied too many coats of acrylic floor wax without bothering to remove the older layers. I chose a tile with several layers of partially disintegrated wax for this experiment. If I had used wax stripper, this would have been a relatively quick and straightforward procedure. Unfortunately, I’d neglected to purchase a container of this product and was forced to rely on my bottle of bathroom cleaner.
After five minutes, the tile was cleaner but still discolored by the old wax. Moral of the story? Even a good scrubber cannot complete its task if you fail to use the appropriate cleaning products.
The Mystery Splotch Test
I noticed a yellow blotch on the ceiling above the kitchen sink. To clean this, I sprayed the stain with bathroom cleaner, extended the handle of the scrubber, and worked away at the spot for a couple of minutes. This worked very well.
The Kitchen Sink Test
Because I tend to keep my kitchen sink clean, the extra capability provided by the powered scrubber proved unnecessary. However, the spin scrubber did a great job cleaning the relatively filthy gap between the back of the sink and the wall. It also scrubbed the splash panel behind the sink, resulting in a noticeably shinier surface.
The Toilet Bowl Test
Over time, water flowing into the toilet bowl has resulted in a set of distinct, brownish-colored lines. After five minutes of scrubbing, aided by a gritty and abrasive cleaning compound, the stains were noticeably diminished. If I perform this cleaning routine every week, I expect the stains will eventually disappear.
The Antique Bathtub Test
My house is 120 years old and, as far as I know, its four-footed, cast-iron bathtub is original equipment. Due to a combination of neglect and old age, the inside of this tub has become terribly stained and worn. I sprayed the inside of the tub with bathroom cleaner and added an inch of warm water. Then I spent ten minutes scrubbing the interior of this appliance.
Although the before and after photographs fail to do it justice, the spin scrubber did a credible job. I suspect, however, that I will not be able to eliminate every stain without removing portions of the tub’s thinning layer of paint.
While I like this scrubber, it is essential to note that it is not a magical product that instantly removes every stain it touches. The spin scrubber works precisely like any other scrub brush. However, it provides its own scrubbing action and adds both reach and leverage.
If you are searching for a versatile tool that complements and aids your work when house-cleaning, you should take a close look at the Tilswall Spin Scrubber.
