Best way to clean a really dirty toilet?

I finally got nauseous enough after I took a wiz this morning that I'm ready to clean my toilet. It's really bad though. I already have rubber gloves. I'm just looking for suggestions for the best cleaner(s). Ajax? Steel wool? I'm going to tackle it on my day off tomorrow...

steel wool would probably hurt the porclein.. if the toliet is any indication of the rest of the house, maybe spend $40 or so and get a cleaning lady for a day

Bad enough that I know I have to buy something special to clean it.

The rest of my apartment is not that bad, I guess I just kept putting off cleaning the bathroom.

I'm not that concerned about the porcelain.

I wish I could get one of those high-velocity flush toilets they have here in the hospital.

I had JUST read the chili post before I read this also. I just knew that pic was coming.

I have to agree. How do you let it get so bad you'd even consider steel wool

The Mean Green cleaner you can get at Wal-Mart is really good for removing stains on counter tops and bathtubs so I imagine it's good for this also.

Pay someone else to do it?

Or here's a thought...clean it once a week? Good Lord, man! A toilet brush and some Commet would be under $3!
