Tidy Bowl

Mixitbabys History of Shots - Tidy Bowl

Category:  Wild N Wacky
Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz rum, 1/2 oz blue curaçao, splash 7up (Preparation: shake and strain)
History: It was 1952 and all living in the town of Stepford, Connecticut were looking for the next big thing in cleaning products.  It was a magical time of sparkles, luster, wax and shine where the latest sink scrubber would be challenged by the next big wood polish.  Nobody could get enough of these modern day marvels.   An ambitious young door salesman by the name of W.C. Scourbach was pounding the door knockers enticing all future buyers with his dazzling array of wonderful waxes, gleaming glazes and captivating cleansers. He would mop and scrub, he would buff and shine until all would stand speechless before him in awe of his magical cleaners.   But there was still one cleaner that was so elusive that many a salesman often considered it the holy grail of cleaning products. .  It wasn’t until 1957 that W.C. Scourbach on vacation in the Caribbean had returned to his cabana from a night of music and debauchery, intoxicated on rum and the local favorite blue Curacao.  That night the young Scourbach passed out on the loo and woke up the next day only to gaze down between his legs and see what looked more like a glimmering tropical ocean of blue rather than the brown striped porcelain he had so often encountered.    It was there on that tiny tropical island that W.C. Scourbach envisioned one of the greatest cleaners of all time, a toilet bowl cleaner, and named it fittingly, Tidy-bowl.    So give praise, flush well and raise your glass to W.C. Scourbach and his cleanser that turns your “toilet” into a “THRONE”.
