It’s pretty safe to say that toilets can get pretty, um… unclean. And sometimes, a mere flush won’t suffice. So it’s important, for the sake of hygiene and general cleanliness, to make sure that you disinfect your toilet bowls regularly.
In this article, we’ll be pointing you towards the best toilet bowl cleaners in the market, talking about the specifications of each one.

The Clorox ToiletWand is a godsend for anyone wanting to give their toilet bowl a good, old scrub down.
As the name ToiletWand might suggest, this device is a nice, ergonomic wand shape, with a sponge pre-loaded with Clorox attached at the end of it.
This sponge deep-cleans and kills all bacteria that come in its path. The sponges at the end are disposable and conveniently come with refills.
Drop-in bleach tablets, which are so often used to clean toilet bowls, can ruin toilet tanks. That is why Fluidmaster have created this alternative toilet cleaning system.
Flush ‘n Sparkle places a cleaning solution directly in the overflow tube of the flush valve, making sure it doesn’t come into contact with the flapper and the fill valve and thus preventing damage to the tank.
Seventh Generation have created and released a natural toilet cleaner made up of a biodegradable formula and scented with natural essential oils, leaving behind a nice, natural and generally pleasant smell behind.
As well as being good for the environment, the lack of chemicals in this particular toilet bowl cleaner means that it will not be destructive and harmful to toilet bowl parts.
However, there remain some doubts over how effective this product actually is, especially when faced with particularly difficult stains.
This adorably-named company has created gel tabs that help keep your toilet fresh and clean, without going through the gross hassle of having to clean it with a brush. It works by having a dispenser that stamps a gel tab to the side of the toilet bowl - this gel tab wears down after every flush, lasting a week on average.
It cleans the toilet, leaving behind no stains or rings. However, there have been a few complaints that the strong ‘chemical’ smell is overpowering, or that this product simply does not work as well as it should, although the extent of it effectiveness could also depend on where the gel tab is placed.
This automatic toilet bowl cleaner uses a bleach tablet that helps disinfect and deodorize toilets that are used daily.
By preventing the buildup of harmful bacteria that can cause diseases if left to their own devices, you can rest assured that your toilets are the cleanest they can possibly be. What is more, this tablet is quite long-lasting, meaning you won’t go through an entire box of bleach tabs too quickly.
However, there are some reservations about using bleach to clean toilets, as bleach is known to wear down and eventually destroy toilet parts.
The sixth and final product we will be talking about is Lysol Power. Lysol Power is a liquid and comes in an angled bottle, designed to clean difficult-to-reach places.
As the name might suggest, Lysol Power is a powerful disinfectant, claiming to eliminate 99.9% of bacteria, remove the toughest stains and leave your toilet clean and smelling fresh - no easy feat considering the horrors your toilet bowl has seen.
One common problem, however, is that the way it is bottled makes it very prone to leaks.
This wasn’t an easy list from which to choose just one product to recommend, as each toilet cleaner brings something different to the table. But if we’re going to choose just one, it’ll be difficult to look past the Clorox ToiletWand Disposable Toilet Cleaning System.
Easy to use, durable, cleans deeper than most alternatives and can reach the tough spots. Looking at the cost may deter you from making that investment, but it’s actually good value for money, considering you’re buying a cleaning system that actually functions perfectly. But by all means, feel free to perform your own research and decide for yourself.
