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.

The Bottom Line

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 it's uncertain 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 - Bait and Switch

By Gary V. Gansmann, 60010, Verified Reviewer

I ordered this product on 11/6/16 for the advertised price of 39.99 and an additional one was free for 19.99 paying separate shipping costs. Well, I called the next day for verification of order and when it will be shipped. I found out my bill charge was 144.99. How did this happen? The Customer rep says he would give me a 20.00 dollar discount on my order. I cancelled my order. have to wait and see if I get my money reimbursed.

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

They ship only once they get the product

By Todd, North Carolina, Verified Reviewer

I had order the deluxe model hurricane spin scrubber for the upgraded motor and lifetime warranty with expedited shipping (3-5 days). After a week and multiple calls to the company, they said to allow 3-6 weeks for delivery.

I explained to them I paid expedited so I wouldn't have to wait, well they said they were sorry and dropped the expedited charge but would still send expedited.

Then after another week I noticed a charge. GREAT. I will now get the scrubber, NOT. They are sending me the lower rated unit because they don't have the upgraded and I should have that shipped in 7-10 business days.

So I asked them how can they sell a product that they don't have. They say they are out right now and maybe in 2 weeks call back as they may have some in stock.

I just canceled my order. It's not worth the headache anymore and they won't tell you much.

I'm just going to order TURBO scrubber now and see how that goes

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

Do not buy!

By Michael B, Glendora, CA, Verified Reviewer

Ordered on 11-12-16. No charge to my card nor message about the delivery date. Called 11-26 and was told card did not work but they had tried to reach me this very day to use another card. Gave another card number and have not heard from them since. I will try and cancel the order. No communication and apparently they can't fulfill. Avoid the headaches.

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

Won't charge and customer service is non responsive.

By Donna Barras, Austin, Verified Reviewer

I received this product and the box said the first charge would take 20 hours. It has been charging for 2 days now and still not charged. Called "customer service" and was placed on hold for over ten minutes. Would not recommend it.

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

Useless item

By Maire, Maine, Verified Reviewer

This scrubber can't clean anything, no matter what kind of soap or cleaner you use. It's all hype.

I waited 6 weeks for this?

By Lee Ellis, Burlington, Ontario, Canada, Verified Reviewer

I was patiently waiting for this Hurricane Spinner and was excited to try it out.

It was a total let down, and you may as well go and buy a few toilet brushes because they will give you the same results. This product doesn't even come close to living up to its reputation, and that's too bad.

Don't waste your money and time, like I did, waiting for this piece of garbage.

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

Online order will not go through

By Christy, Alabama, Verified Reviewer

Do NOT order this online. You can get this product, with all the attachments, and for the same price at Target, WalMart, and Bed Bath And Beyond.

Not worth the money

By John Johnson, Rosamond, CA, Verified Reviewer

I purchased my scrubber from Bed Bath & Beyond. I charged up the scrubber for 24 hours before my first use.

I started to clean my shower. The scrubber did a remarkable job of cleaning my shower for about 15 minutes. The scrubber stopped working while I was trying to use it to complete my shower, and I could not get the scrubber to turn back on anymore.

I tried to recharge it for another 24 hours, but it still will not activate. Total waste of my $39.99 plus tax.

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

Hurricane Spin Scrubber blows

By Mike, North Carolina, Verified Reviewer

I got this for Christmas and just cleaned my bathroom. I sprayed the shower and tub with cleaner and let it sit for five minutes before using the Spin Scrubber. I even went over the entire area twice and even then, soap scum remained. Scrubbing by hand is more efficient, and way faster.

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