"We Entertain When It Rains"  

Gear & Gadgets...


Some of us at RainyDayMagazine were a little skeptical when this GeekClean product was brought into the office.  Shower gel?  Just how does one use a gel in the shower?  Is it going to make us smell all flowery or god forbid...like "fresh linens"?  Not that there is anything wrong with that...

Anyway, we put away the Ivory soap for a week and put GeekClean in the company shower stall.  I tried using the GeekClean like liquid soap... it worked fine, but I was informed that I would get a LOT better "sudsing" if I used the GeekClean nylon accessory "thing". 

Apparently, the nylon scrubber thing was necessary to get maximum sudsing action out of the product.  I was further informed by those that clean themselves regularly that the "nylon scubber thing" is NOT a new invention... it is just NEW to me :-)  Well, I'm always happy to learn.

It took a little time for me to make the switch from soap to liquid shower gel and a "scrubber", but now I'm hooked!  The scrubber does a great job of cleaning.  The scent is fresh but subtle...kind of outdoorsy.  I have no idea what all the ingredients do, but they do a great job.

The "user manual" is on the back.  The directions were clear and easy to follow.  You don't REALLY have to RTFM, but but you should... because it is very entertaining :-)

So if you are looking for something for your favorite geek... you now have a choice amongst other cleaning products like Norton's Utilities, McAfee's Virex, or PureBath's GeekClean.  Chances are they already have the first two...besides, there is more to life than just keeping your hard drive clean!

Technological advances come about in many different ways... be it the small startup group working in the garage, the "skunkworks" team brought together in a secret building to solve a super challenging problem, or a large methodical engineering staff working under pressure to meet a tight deadline.

Sooner or later, we all need to (or know someone that needs to...) perform some personal "house cleaning". 

PureBath has made it a much easier for those of us with a little too much "tech scent" to do our own system maintenance. 


Review Summary:

Initial Impression- Sudsy

Usability- Simple

Durability- 8 oz...last for months?

Price- $20

NOTE:  If you order GeekClean and enter "RDM" in the Promo Code, you will get a FREE nylon "scrubber thing" until the PureBath people get tire of giving them away.
