finally found the best working toilet bowl cleaner. The Works

The Works works awesome. cleans better on contact than the lysol gel stuff does after sitting for 10 minutes. Hardly had to do any scrubing with the brush using The Works

I'm afraid to know what you've been eating that you regularly stain your bowl that badly.

hmm... i gave up on those "bathroom cleaners."

i use automotive stuff. Castrol's all purpose Degreaser.

its awesome. the bad part is that i wear a gas mask while cleaning or else the vapors will get me.

I loved The Works the first time I tried it, but then I started finding it at Big Lots (used to be McFrugal's) and the stuff there is watery and sucks. That's the regular formula. The thick stuff is much better for our hard water since we live in one of the only towns in Chicagoland without Lake water.

The description for The Works says it has more active ingredients in it than any other cleaner on the market. OK, so that means more pollutants in our air and after cleaning, in our water table. But making a paste of borax and lemon juice, slapping it on the bowl for 2 hours and then scrubbing it off is so much work. Chemical vs. "Natural." Easy vs. Hard.

If anyone is interested: Homemade Cleaners

I like the new Clorox with Teflon. Not only does shit not stick as easily, you can stir-fry right in the bowl. Kind of like a wok, but different.

You can make a Works bomb by filing up a 2-liter plastic bottle with shredded aluminum foil. Then pour in a bottle of works and screw the lid back on the 2-liter bottle. Run for cover and watch the fun.
