Put down the toilet brush and let a robot scrub those bowls for you

Robots have come a long way over the past few years, and they’ve become pretty helpful assistants to have around the house. Make a mental list of all your daily or weekly chores, because there’s probably a robot that could be doing it for you.

Floor-cleaning robots like the Roomba have been around for years, and have become commonplace. But now, there are also robots that’ll mow your lawn, and others that will fold your laundry. They can even do the dirty jobs like cleaning your gutters. But they’re getting even dirtier.

One company wants to eliminate one of the dirtiest chores of them all: cleaning your toilets. So they’ve created a robot that’ll dive right in to make that bowl sparkle.

The dirtiest robot job of them all

Meet Giddel, a robot designed to scrub your toilet bowls, keeping them squeaky clean.  Altan Robotech, the company behind the Giddel Toilet Cleaning Robot, said in a release “… people no longer have to do the mundane and disgusting task of cleaning a toilet bowl. Instead, they can focus on spending time with loved one.” That’s definitely one way to look at it.

The cordless, lithium-ion-powered robot just clips onto its specially-designed toilet seat (included), and goes to town on all aspects the rim. And because it’s hanging onto the seat, it never actually touches the water. That way, you don’t have to replace toilet cleaning with the new task of giving your robot a bath.

And among other cleaning supplies the robot comes with a (I’m sure much-appreciated) non-spin brush that should prevent splashing. Take a look at one of the many videos on the company’s YouTube page below:

You know you want your own

So how much is handing this chore off worth to you? The listing on Amazon showcases a whole lot of marketing photos of people having fun doing something other than cleaning a toilet. Even making the bed looks fun.

But prepare yourself, because Giddel doesn’t come cheap. Now with that said, its normal list price is $499.99. But as of the time this story was published, adding the toilet-cleaning robot to your cart at Amazon will bring up a $100 coupon, which will knock 20% off the price. Check it out through the link below.


But you’ll need to be patient. Unfortunately, Giddel isn’t eligible for Amazon Prime shipping.
