What Is Hurricane Spin Scrubber?

Using a built-in rechargeable battery that spins the head at 300 RPM, the Hurricane Spin Scrubber promises to rinse, clean, and leave your shower spotless in less than 30 seconds. We’re also told that the “incredible” torque it delivers can cut through any caked-on dirt and grime.

Attached to Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s head are three interchangeable brushes, each of which the company claims feature flexible bristles that mold into cracks and crevices. This way, the company tells us you’ll be able to attack soap scum, mildew, and more, in tracks and corners.

On top of this, Hurricane Spin Scrubber features an extension arm that can help those with arthritis clean hard-to-reach areas. It can even be used outdoors!

Who doesn’t want to restore the luster and shine of the shower, faster, easier, and without harsh chemicals? And perhaps most importantly, without scrubbing or rubbing?

But will Hurricane Spin Scrubber really “do the hard work for you,” or will you end up disappointed? Before you hand over your credit card information, that’s exactly what we’ll help you figure out here.

Hurricane Spin Scrubber vs. Turbo Scrub

The HighYa team has been reviewing ASOTV products for years, and one thing we’ve learned is that it’s fairly common for these companies to “share” products.

In other words, we’ll often see a product appear from one company, only for its website to be pulled and reappear weeks (or months) later, sold by a completely different manufacturer.

What’s the point? A few months ago, we reviewed a nearly identical product named Turbo Scrub, which—except for the blue accents on Hurricane Spin Scrubber—appears to be the identical product.

One HighYa reader had given Turbo Scrub a 5-star rating at the time of our research, claiming that the motor turns fast, it operates quietly, and is effective for addressing grout and other hard-to-reach areas.

Outside of this, if you search online for “powered shower scrubber,” you’ll quickly learn that there are other functionally identical products like Quickie Tub N’ Tile Power Scrubber (which appears to be the original).

This also appears to come with mostly positive online customer feedback, with many claiming that it cleans several different surfaces well and features quality construction.

Several customers noted that Turbo Scrub was heavy, though, that it didn’t clean as well as expected, and that it didn’t come with multiple brush heads. At least from this perspective, Hurricane Spin Scrubber seems to have a leg up.

If you’re willing to venture outside this design, you’ll find even more products that could feasibly deliver the same cleaning power (even power drill attachments!), but might not always improve reach.

What’s the point? Hurricane Spin Scrubber is not a unique product. But will it deliver superior performance?

We’ll get to that in a second, but first, let’s find out how much you’ll pay.

How Much Does Hurricane Spin Scrubber Cost?

One Hurricane Spin Scrubber set will cost you $39.99, plus free shipping and handling. This includes:

  • 1 Hurricane Spin Scrubber Brush
  • 1 Extension Arm
  • 1 Set of Scrubbing Heads
  • 1 Mesh Storage Bag

During checkout, you’ll be able to purchase a second set for an added $19.99 fee.

Hurricane Spin Scrubber is brought to you by the same company who makes Hurricane 360 Spin Mop and Hurricane Twin Spin Mop (Telebrands), who provides a 30-day refund policy, less S&H charges, on most of their products. In order to request one, you’ll need to call customer service at 855-668-1655.

Now, let’s get back to examining Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s performance potential.

What Is Hurricane Spin Scrubber Designed to Clean?

That cloudy film covering your shower (informally known as soap scum) is the result of calcium and magnesium in water reacting with the fatty acids in soap. Not only does it look unsightly, but by creating a prime breeding ground for bacteria, soap scum can even pose a health hazard in some instances.

Now, soap scum isn’t exactly a new problem, so there have been thousands of different home remedies and products to remove it over the years, including baking soda and vinegar solutions, borax, ammonia, pumice stones, dryer sheets, and much more.

How Does Hurricane Spin Scrubber Stack Up?

While these options rely mostly on chemistry to remove soap scum, mechanical devices like Hurricane Spin Scrubber work like brushes to physically scrape soap scum from a surface. To do this, they rely on two things: 1) speed and 2) power.

While we’re told Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s head spins at 300RPM, we’re not told much about its torque, or the power at which it spins. Why is this important?

If Spin Scrubber’s head delivers too little torque, pressing it against surfaces (such as tile or glass) with enough force to remove soap scum might cause it to slow down.

If this occurs, then the fact that Hurricane Scrubber’s head (or any other competing product) spins at 300 RPM won’t mean much as far as real world benefits.

The good news is that we tried out the Hurricane Spin Scrubber in multiple scenarios to see just how closely it matches the manufacturer’s claims.

Our Hurricane Spin Scrubber Hands-On Test

We had the opportunity to perform some in-depth testing the Hurricane Spin Scrubber. Did it live up to the manufacturer’s claims? Here’s the video:

Cleaning a Stand Up Shower With Hurricane Spin Scrubber

After some quick and easy assembly and spraying the shower with a mild cleaner, we found that Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s extension handle really did help us improve reach and scrub the floor without bending down.

While we didn’t have to press down very hard on the Hurricane Spin Scrubber to get it to clean, we quickly learned that because of the head’s spinning motion, it had a tendency to pull to the right when in use.

In order to maintain control, we found we often had to grip tightly; at times, even holding the device with both hands.

After we were finished, Hurricane Spin Scrubber seemed to have cleaned well while the floor was still wet. Once the floor dried for 24 hours, however, we found numerous spots that the scrubber didn’t adequately clean.

Next, we used the corner brush on the shower’s ledge and door rails. It did a great job of working its way into corners, but like the flat head, it was difficult to keep it stable without slipping from side to side.

We then used the dome brush on the same area, which seemed to do a better job than the corner brush at getting rid of mildew.

Finally, Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s flat brush delivered a big improvement in soap scum and mildew after just a few minutes scrubbing the glass shower door.

Overall, we thought Hurricane Spin Scrubber did an OK job on the stand up shower, but to get stains out of the grout, we’d likely need to use a stronger cleaning agent.

What About Cleaning a Dirty Bathtub?

After spraying some mild cleaner on the wall of a shower that had seen better days, we used the dome brush on the tile wall, the corner brush for corners and grout, and the flat brush on the floor.

After spending nearly an hour cleaning the tub, we though Hurricane Spin Scrubber did a decent job of removing soap scum and mildew. However, this required quite a bit of time concentrating on each individual area to ensure everything was clean.

We spent so much time cleaning the shower, in fact, that Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s battery died, although we would have probably needed another 30 minutes to fully clean (without using stronger cleaning chemicals).

Cleaning a Sink Faucet

For our final test, we used the corner brush head on a standard sink faucet. As with our other tests, we often found it difficult to keep it stable and in place. We also learned that the head was too big to get into all the small crevices.

In the end, we didn’t find that Hurricane Spin Scrubber cleaned the faucet any better or easier than by hand.

Our Bottom Line Regarding the Hurricane Spin Scrubber

After finishing, Hurricane Spin Scrubber was easy to clean; simply run under water to rinse and allow time to dry.

Throughout the process, we found that the device really can make cleaning bathtubs and showers easier, and in some instances, faster. It can also make the process physically easier since you won’t have to bend down as often.

It seems to do a fairly good job of cleaning up everyday spots and stains, although it almost certainly won’t be as effective without using cleaning agents or chemicals.

While Hurricane Spin Scrubber seemed to clean well, it’s worth noting that we had to spend quite a bit of time focusing on each area in order to remove all the mildew and soap scum buildup. In short, don’t expect this buildup to miraculously disappear, or you might end up disappointed.

The Hurricane Spin Scrubber is also a bit heavy and takes a lot of effort to keep it in place, so we’re not sure how ideal it would work for someone who suffers from arthritis.

Lastly, keep in mind that it took about 20 hours to charge the first time and 8 hours to fully charge every time thereafter, while power only lasts about an hour.

Hurricane Spin Scrubber Reviews

Since writing our original review, seven HighYa readers provided feedback about Hurricane Spin Scrubber, giving it an average rating of 1.7 stars. We’ve found that this is fairly common among all As Seen on TV products.

While one customer claimed to have had a positive experience, several others claimed to have experienced extensive shipping delays and unresponsive customer service.

Despite these complaints, AJ Khubani’s Telebrands is the largest company in the ASOTV industry, having been in business for more than three decades. In addition to the other Hurricane models mentioned earlier, the company is responsible for recent runaway hits like Red Copper Pan, Atomic Beam USA, Ped Egg Power, and many others.

We’re definitely not saying you’ll experience the same, although HighYa readers have given these products (and all ASOTV products in general, regardless of the manufacturer) an average rating of 2 stars. Why? From a product perspective, the most common complaints typically revolve around lower quality than expected and not working as advertised.

Other common complaints often revolve around business practices, such as long shipping times and difficulty processing refunds.

Again, this doesn’t mean you’ll experience the same. We’re simply providing you with a complete view of the information.

Will Hurricane Spin Scrubber Help You Win the Battle Against Dirt & Grime?

Can Hurricane Spin Scrubber help you get your shower clean? As with any kind of friction between two surfaces, it’s hard to imagine that it won’t help remove at least some dirt and grime in your shower. Will it make it easier? With its extension arm, this also seems possible.

Perhaps most importantly, though, will Hurricane Spin Mop help make that inevitable soap scum a thing of the past?

In general, it appears that chemical reactions often provide the best results at removing soap scum. Sure, you can definitely get rid of it with enough time and elbow grease, but liquid solutions (even homemade ones) might deliver better results with less effort. What does this mean for you?

Based on our testing, Hurricane Spin Scrubber’s extension wand and rotating head really do seem to make it easier to remove soap scum buildup from bathtubs and showers.

It’s not perfect, though, since it’s heavy and can take a lot of concentration and effort to keep the head in one place long enough to adequately clean.

Given this, we’re not sure we’d recommend it for those with arthritis or other types of joint pain.

The good news is that if you feel like rolling the dice on Hurricane Spin Scrubber, it comes with free S&H and the company seems to stand behind it with a 30-day refund policy. Just be sure to hang onto your original box, since it probably won’t be cheap to send it back to the manufacturer.

    Worthless product

    I ordered the Deluxe Hurricane Spin Scrubber but receive the Standard model. It was a special TV offer to double your order with just paying a separate shipping and handling on the second Spin Scrubber. When I received the invoice, I was charged the full price for both Spin Scrubbers, neither of which were the deluxe model.

    I called the number for "prompt resolution" and waited for over 45 minutes, but nobody ever answered. I tried several numbers within the company's advertisement to reach a live person, but to no avail. Every number I called, it was the same recording with no answer and an extremely long wait time.

    I will report this company to office of Attorney General in New Jersey where this company lists as its home office, as well as the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and office of the Attorney General in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    When I purchased this, I was skeptical. Most things don’t work as they advertise. This one did! I let the unit properly charge, sprayed the cleaner and began scrubbing. I used all three heads and was able to get everything including the track, without breaking my back in the process. Would definitely recommend, and plan on purchasing one for my daughter as well.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    "Torque"

    • Whitman, MA,
    • Oct 10, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Here I am, with wet bare feel having just cleaned my shower stall and bathtub while using the Hurricane Spin Scrubber. I couldn't wait to write this review.

    The IDEA of this item is certainly good and viable. BUT, the Hurricane itself is a PIECE OF GARBAGE. It fails.

    It's no coincidence that the commercial pushes that it has "torque" when the truth is that "torque" is precisely what is MISSING. I repeat, the Hurricane Spin Scrubber has about HALF of the MINIMUM torque required to do its job. The spinning brush STOPS when reasonable and expected pressure is applied. By "reasonable and expected," I mean "not a lot." For anyone who doesn't know what "torque" is, torque is a motor's ability to keep spinning WHEN work pressure is applied to it. The motor within this abomination has the overall impression of something which would be used in a child's toy.

    I'll bet anything that the discussions about its final design went like this:

    Inventor: "It looks great, but unlike the prototype I gave you, the motor in this one has nowhere near enough torque to significantly facilitate the cleaning process."

    Investor/Promoter: "If we upgrade the motor, we'll have to charge $69, and our research shows that fewer people will buy it at that price point. Hey, how about we just TELL people it has great torque, even though it doesn't? Most people don't even know what torque is, anyhow. Heck, WE didn't even know what torque was, they don't teach about torque in business school, after all. Look, Mr. Inventor, success is no longer about making a product which truly helps the customer. It's about taking their money and hoping they won't try to return the item. Get with it."

    The Hurricane will help taking off very light water stains on your tiles. It will NOT take off stubborn soap scum, or any other accumulations in your bathtub. You will still need to get in there on your hands and knees, with your bristle brush, Comet, bleach, Soft Scrub, and scrub away.

    Thank you Hurricane! Hopefully, another company who cares will make something that actually works! But you don't care, because you're sitting on the beach in the Caribbean right now, sipping a Margarita you bought with MY $40. I appreciate your authentic concern for helping your fellow man. Spineless shysters, through and through.

    Bluntly, this is a piece of crap!

    I have trouble bending over or kneeling so I bought the Hurricane Spin Brush thinking it would be a giant help. Was I ever wrong! There is absolutely no power behind the brushes, and if you press down, they stop altogether. I might as well just bend down and scrub my tub with my hands. I really can't say enough bad things about this so-called scrubber! If it was possible, I wouldn't give any stars!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Do it by hand. It is easier, quicker and with far better results. Really disappointed with this purchase. The heads are really awkward to change, and the Hurricane Spin speed is more like a gentle breeze. Don't waste your money.

    I am not happy with this product

    • Marion, VA,
    • Sep 25, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Like everyone else, I saw this product on TV and I asked my sons for this for my birthday. I was so excited when my son presented this gift to me.

    Well, I put the cleaning solution in my tub, put the spin brush together, turned it on and 3 minutes later, it died. The couple of minutes it did work, it cleaned absolutely nothing. This is my first product review because I am so upset that my son wasted his money. The only thing that I am satisfied with is the fact that this is a scrub brush on a stick and I don't have to bend over the tub.

    For me personally, this product was a total waste of money.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Battery woes

    I charged the scrubber up once and used it. I was pretty pleased with the results. I did not use it again for a couple of months, and it would not turn on. I charged it for over 24 hours, and it still will not turn on. I'm afraid I made a bad investment in purchasing this product.

    Waste of effort and money

    • Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada,
    • Aug 20, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    A friend of mine loaned me their's to use as we were moving out of our apartment. I do suffer from a very rare neurological condition, which makes it impossible for me to bend, reach or use too much strength not that I have any to use. So I thought, "Perfect, this will help clean my shower and other areas I needed help with." What a joke! If I could give it a zero rating, I would.

    It did not clean as promoted on the box. I (who does not have any strength) was making it bend like I was applying a ton of weight on it. The bristles of the brush head I used already looked like they had been used many times. But she had yet to use it! So now I need to go buy her a new multi-purpose brush head to replace the one I used for all of two minutes (as it slowly turned and removed nothing but was great at moving the cleaner around)!

    The head I used looks like a tooth brush head that is long overdue and needs to be trashed. Long and short of it, don't waste your money on this product. I myself am glad I did not purchase this, she is convinced I used it wrong! Can't wait to see what she says when she does actually use it for the first time, then I am sure her view will change!

    But hey, that's what slick advertising is all about, it's the new Carny shows men of our time. Promote it, sell it, and then disappear once the money has been made!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Worst ripoff ever!

    • Trezevant, TN,
    • Aug 3, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought this JUNK yesterday and charged it overnight as instructed. As soon as I started using it, I noticed how FLIMSY the extension connection is. I began "scrubbing" my shower, but it took very little pressure to cause the worthless motor to stop spinning but using no pressure rendered it basically useless. By the time I was halfway through, the battery began running down, effectively making this a $40 manual scrub brush with a flimsy-ass extension handle. Men really need to stop inventing crap they never use! I'm getting my money back today, so screw your greedy company for trying to get rich by ripping people off selling them crap! And I do mean CRAP.

    Complete piece of garbage

    • Cambridgeshire, UK,
    • Jul 17, 2017

    This product only charged (i.e., the light was on) for 30 minutes the first time. Its RPM rate was probably 30, and there was no torque to speak of. It only removed very superficial grime and lasted for five minutes use. It will not recharge. No response from the supplier and no return address. Not even worth one star.
