Simplify an expression of square roots

Sage's .simplify() command is unable to simplify the expression $\sqrt{2} \cdot \sqrt{3} \cdot \sqrt{6}$: the output of both

(sqrt(6) * sqrt(3) * sqrt(2)).simplify()


(sqrt(6) * sqrt(3) * sqrt(2)).simplify_full()

is just sqrt(6)sqrt(3)sqrt(2) again.

Notably, (sqrt(6)sqrt(3)sqrt(2)).is_integer() also returns false.

Is there a more powerful version of the simplify command that won't get overwhelmed by an expression like this?
