Well, have no fear. This article discusses the top five toilet bowl cleaners that quickly get rid of the mess while giving you ample room to keep your distance.
Clorox® Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach
This product is set-it-and-forget-it, which is why it is number one on our list. The tablet sits in the tank where it helps clean and deodorize for up to three months. With every flush, the tablet activates and goes to work.
Lysol® Hydrogen Peroxide Action™ Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Lysol’s bleach-free option uses hydrogen peroxide to quickly cut through mess and stains. The bottle is conveniently angled to fit under the rim. Since no bleach is present, you don’t need a mask, eye shields or gloves. Simply squeeze the product on and flush.
Scrubbing Bubbles® Fresh Brush® Toilet Cleaning System
When some elbow grease is required, reach for the Scrubbing Bubbles kit. With its wand, flushable scrubbing pads and storage stand, you have everything you need to scrub down the bowl without coming into personal contact with the mess. An added bonus? The bright citrus scent that covers up any nasty odors released as you clean.
Homemade DIY All Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner
Looking for an all natural option without any chemicals? Simply make your own! Homemade toilet bowl cleaner is quick and easy to make and usually relies on an agent such as baking soda to soften and lift away the mess. There are many great recipes for DIY toilet bowl cleaners online, including this one from Bob Villa.
CLR® Calcium, Lime, & Rust Remover
Why is CLR on this list? While not typically thought of as a toilet bowl cleaner, CLR powers through stains, discolorations, hard water buildup and rust. When renovating an outdated, neglected bathroom or dealing with a badly stained toilet, CLR can get the job done. It’s septic safe and free of phosphates.
The toilet is the last place in the house anyone wants to clean, but with these products, you can quickly and easily flush the mess away. Choose among bleach, non-bleach, DIY, a scrubber or buildup/rust remover to have your toilet bowl gleaming in no time at all.
