About Clean Reach
The Clean Reach scrub brush features an extendable, easy-reach handle and a specially designed grime-grabbing cleaning pad that promises to help you clean every inch of your bathroom, without bending or kneeling.
Whether it’s your bathtub, showers, or anywhere else in your home, the manufacturer claims Clean Reach’s ergonomic handle extends to just the right length.
To use, simply wet the scrubbing pad to break up tough dirt, while the thick, yellow side section simultaneously cleans tiles and other surfaces. Then, flip to the pad’s poly soft side and clean mirrors and glass doors, without chemicals, scratching, or getting your hands dirty.
When you’re finished, just rinse Clean Reach’s pad and sit back and relax!
Clean Reach certainly seems to have a simple, useful design, but can it really provide easy, touch-free cleaning from floor to ceiling? Is it revolutionary, or are there dozens of products just like it?
You're here to learn as much about Clean Reach as possible before handing over your money, so keep reading, and we'll reveal what we learned during our research.
First up? Let’s take a look at the competition.
Are There Other Products Like Clean Reach?
If you search online for “extending handle sponge” or “extendable bathroom scrubber,” you’ll quickly find that there are perhaps a dozen or more products that are meaningfully similar to Clean Reach.
Here are five of the most popular models we encountered during our research:
|OXO Good Grips Tub & Tile Scrubber||$12-$15 ($4.99 per replacement pad||Handle extends from 26” to 42”, pivoting antimicrobial scrubber head|
|Scotch-Brite Non-Scratch Bath Scrubber||$30 ($4.99 per replacement pad)||Extendable handle, hanging loop, grip handle|
|Collections Etc Shower Tub Tile Scrubber Brush||$10/td>||Swivel head, handle extends from 24” to 36”, includes 3 sponges. No replacement pads listed.|
|Clorox Tub & Tile Scrubber||$12 ($4.29 per replacement pad)||Extendable handle, hanging loop, grip handle|
|Miles Kimball Long Handled Tub & Tile Scrubber||$14||6” x 3” wide brush, handle extends from 29.5” to 55” long|
Granted, not all of these options look or function exactly like Clean Reach, but if you’re on a mission to scrub your bathroom without bending or kneeling, they might reasonably provide the same level of assistance.
We’ll talk about price next, but one of the first differentiating factors you’ll notice between each of these models is the length of each their handles. For example, there’s a difference of almost two feet between how far you can reach with the Collections Etc scrubber compared to the Miles Kimball option.
Pro tip: Even if you’re tall, remember that the handle’s total reach is still important. Why? Because your height means you might have to bend or reach to clean areas closer to the ground.
Another big factor is the availability of replacement heads. Most of these options can be purchased locally at big box retailers, including their replacement heads, so if you run out, finding more can be as easy as hopping in your car.
Compared to online-only products like Clean Reach, this benefit serves double duty by potentially saving you S&H charges. Speaking of which…
How Much Does the Clean Reach Scrub Brush Cost?
One Clean Reach set will cost you $10 plus $7.95 S&H. This includes one extendable handle and three 3-in-1 cleaning pads.
During checkout, you’ll be able to purchase a second set for an additional $7.95 S&H. Although Clean Reach comes with replacement pads, it doesn’t appear these can be purchased individually once they wear out.
Regardless of the number you order, Clean Reach comes with a 30-day money back guarantee, less S&H. In order to request one, customer service can be reached at 866-684-5574.
Are There Any Customer Reviews for Clean Reach?
While there weren’t any online customer reviews for Clean Reach at the time of our research, after reviewing 700+ ASOTV products over the years, we’ve learned that it’s relatively common for a single product to be offered by more than one company at the same time.
With this said, remember the Collections Etc Shower Tub Tile Scrubber Brush we discussed in the previous section? Except for the angled head, it appears to be identical to Clean Reach, from both design and functionality perspectives.
Unfortunately, this appeared to be a new product as well, without any online customer feedback.
Based on their customer service phone number, Clean Reach appears to be manufactured by the same company who brought you Scratch-dini, which had 60+ HighYa reader reviews and a 1.4-star average rating.
Like most As Seen on TV products, regardless of the manufacturer, most complaints claimed that it didn’t work as well as advertised and that the price was too high for what they received.
Obviously, since Clean Reach is a completely different product without any online feedback, there’s no way to know if you’ll experience any of the same. Our job is to provide you with all the information, though, so it might be worth keeping in mind.
Will Clean Reach Make Cleaning Your Home Easier?
Even without any customer reviews and ignoring common feedback for other ASOTV products, the reality is that you can still come to an informed decision about Clean Reach’s ability to make your cleaning tasks easier.
For example, unless you only plan on using Clean Reach for light-duty cleaning, you’ll almost certainly need to place a fair amount of pressure on the handle. In turn, this places additional pressure on the sponge head, giving you the ability to scrub away stuck-on dirt and grime.
The concern? In the Clean Reach commercial, you can clearly see the extended plastic handle bending under pressure. As a result, we’d wonder how long Clean Reach would stand up to regular abuse before breaking.
Another concern is that, although the manufacturer claims Clean Reach can “scrub every single inch of your bathroom without bending,” this almost wholly depends on the length of its handle—something we’re not told about.
Fortunately, the functionally identical Collections Etc scrubber lists its handle length as 24” to 36”, which means Clean Reach features the shortest handle of all its competition.
On top of this, at $17.95 (including S&H), Clean Reach is also the second most expensive option.
And after contacting customer support, we learned that replacement pads aren’t an option. In other words, once the included pads wear out, you’ll need to purchase a whole new set.
Finally, while powered options like the Hurricane Spin Scrubber might cost more, their meaningfully longer handles and spinning heads might provide more bang for your buck. Be sure to watch our video test to see how it performed!
Did you decide to order Clean Reach? If so, did it perform as well as the manufacturer made it seem? Or, did you end up going with the competition?

The connection of poles
One pole connected to the other, but the larger one would not screw to the other. The idea is great but had to bend to use it. Liked the extra pads. They are good at scrubbing soiled spots.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
