Shine Bathroom Overview

The Shine bathroom assistant is a compact gadget that sits in the general vicinity of your toilet and automates its general maintenance and cleaning. All it asks for is a bit of water and a special eco-friendly cleaning pod and it’ll do all the dirty work for you. You won’t have to touch anything either since you can just ask Alexa to get the Shine to start cleaning.

Not only can it clean your toilet, but it also tracks its water usage to help save money and can even detect if there’s a leak or other issues present that you might have been unaware of. Moreover, it can automatically send repair kits along with a video showing you how to take care of the repairs yourself.

Features

Automated Cleaning and Deodorizing

Throw out your rubber gloves, toxic detergents, toilet scrubbers, and bathroom air fresheners, as Shine is capable of doing all the toilet cleaning automatically while deodorizing the bowl after every flush.

Eco-Friendly & Chemical-Free

Shine utilizes cleaning pods that are completely recyclable and every bit as tough on dirt and germs as bleach. They’re also absolutely chemical-free and activated through electrolysis, eventually breaking down into a simple saline solution that’s gentle on your pipes and isn’t harmful to the environment.

Easy to Install & Works with any Toilet

Shine is perfectly compatible with any toilet and will only take a few minutes to set up without the need for calling in an expert.

Tracks Water Usage

This device is capable of continuously monitoring your water usage which can help you figure out if you’re spending too much on water bills due to overuse or unnoticed leaks.

Your Personal Plumber

Instead of asking Google and guessing what the problem is with your toilet, Shine can diagnose your toilet woes for you and even have a repair kit sent over to your house.

Alexa-Ready

Shine works seamlessly with Alexa, so all you have to do is ask it to clean the toilet and Sam – Shine’s artificial intelligence – will immediately get to work.

Night Light

Can’t stand turning on those bright bathroom lights in the dead of night? Shine comes with its own gentle night light that’s capable of illuminating the bathroom for you.

Lengthy Battery Life

Shine lasts up to half a year on a single charge and juicing up the device is as simple as plugging it into a power source via a USB-C cable.

Aesthetics

Shine boasts a stylish all-white design that can easily be mistaken for a high-end humidifier. It’s basically a cylinder that’s slightly narrower towards the top and rounded towards the bottom.

The top half is transparent and holds the water and the cleaning pods, while the bottom half is solid white. In the middle, you’ll find a thin strip that acts as the night light. Overall, it’s a simple-looking piece of equipment that’s classy enough to be put on display anywhere in your bathroom.
