great cleaner, but, not good for septics
Cleans well, smells fresh, but does say 'antibacterial' in small print, so therefore
not too good for septic systems. Have been advised not to use 'antibacterial' products in septic systems
by the septic servicemen.
not user friendly
I purchased this product because we are on septic since last moving house. It is ok as a cleaner, but when the nozzle that goes up under the rim of the toilet is also the top of the bottle and you just pop it up to open. So it invariably closes itself while you're swishing the bowl and then you have to touch it to open again! As if cleaning the toilet isn't grotty enough!
Absolutely love this product. I have been using it for many years and is the best toilet cleaner on the market. I had a bad rust stain down the back of the toilet bowl and nothing I tried would remove it. After a week of applying this product everyday the stain was gone and does not return so long as I use this product at least once a week.
Don't use if you have a septic tank, it will disrupt your system!
This product claims to be septic safe. At the same time it claims to be antibacterial. These things are mutually incompatible. Your septic tank uses fundamental decay processes, similar to a compost heap, that only work because of the presence of lots of healthy, hungry bacteria. Putting an antibacterial in the toilet kills off the bacteria in the septic tank as well as those in the toilet! So, if you want to risk your septic system failing with rapid accumulation of sludge, and are happy to pay to have it pumped out more frequently than it sho...uld be - then, go ahead poison your system with this stuff. After reading the label, I used it as a weekkiller - quite effective - and the soil will recover quickly! I am also looking to replace all my Earth Choice products with something more honest - I no longer trust them!
Another dagger in the heart of the multinationals
I bought this one for the first time after reading the reviews here. It was $2 at Woolies so it was about half the cost of that famous toxic cleaner. Does it work? Yes, at least as well as the multinational. Why would it be on the bottom shelf, far away from the "popular brands". Well your guess is as good as mine. Maybe this one isnt seen in high rotation commercials on television. As Molly would say, "do yourself a favour"...
We had previously had superb results at a more than competitive price with Earth Choice products we decided to try Earth Choice Toilet Cleaner. Again, delighted with the result, environmentally friendly, and usually way cheaper than the 'big name' brands. Earth Choice gets our vote for laundry, kitchen, household cleaning, and personal care products. Seldom buy any other brand these days.
Removed stubborn stains!
After years of using other brands with chemicals in them in my toilet in an attempt to remove a stubborn stain in the bowl I decided to try earth choice. Before using earth choice I had used brands like harpic, I'd even tried using pure bleach to remove the stain, I scrubbed and scrubbed but nothing seemed to help. ONE USE of earth choice's toilet cleaner, one light scrub and the stain was 100% gone. Never going back! Great value, nice smell and very effective. I have never written a product review before but I was so impressed I just had to share my experience. Give it a try!
No chemical smell, very affordable, works better than other more well known brands.
It works really well and makes the toilet shiny and clean. It doesn't have a strong smell like the ones with bleach and other harsh chemicals. It is like a gel so it sticks well to the toilet sides so you can give it a good clean. I've used another "natural" cleaning product and it was very difficult to clean the sides of the toilet as it would just run down the sides. Environmental friendly!
it is affordable and works well to give a good clean. It makes the toilet smell clean and fresh after and gets those "skid" marks off.
The spout could be better to get under the rim of the toilet
A good product that's better for the environment...
The earth choice cleaner is inexpensive and environmentally friendly. You don't need to use a great deal of the product to get a good result which again is better for the environment. It does the job of getting the bowl clean and fresh.
It's one of if not the cheapest on the market. It is suppose to be environmentally friendly. Does the job that it's suppose to do. The smell is not overpowering like some other brands.
Can't think of any except it may not whiten the bowl as good as another type of product containing bleach etc but still does a good job.
Yet another good product produced by Earth Choice
Generally speaking earth choice produce some great products. This being one of them. It works. Simple. And it's cost effective. One of the cheapest on the market. Only thing I don't like about this product and other earth choice products is there so called 'Green' claims. You haven't got me convinced!
A good product that is from a more environmentally friendly range of cleaning products. I like that you do not need to use a lot of the actual product to get the toilet clean. It is inexpensive and does the job.
A great product and I like the fact that it comes from a range more environmentally friendly than a lot of others on the market. I have found that it does a good clean despite not having bleach or other power cleaning ingredients like other toilet cleaners.
There are none.
I think this is probably the best of the septic-safe toilet cleaners. However, don't get confused by the name as it is not actually chemical free. It still contains things that are harmful to the environment so if your worried about that just use some bicarb and vinegar.
Is great if you have a septic tank and can't use a lot of toilet cleaners. Does do a good job.
The toilet isn't as sparkling clean with this product as it would be with some harsher cleaners, but for those with septic tanks I think this is as good as its going to get.
I like this product and it is one of my top choices for toilet cleaners because it doesn't contain bleach and is not scented strongly. It cleans fairly well and isn't expensive. It is also readily found in the larger supermarkets.
This is another Earth Choice product which stresses on being good for the environment. It is not expensive and works pretty good. It is lightly scented and only a little bit of scrubbing is needed. If you leave it on for a couple of hours, and then just flush, it leaves the toilet pretty clean.
I don't have anything negative to say about this toilet cleaner.
I would buy this again except for the dodgy nozzle design. If you invert the bottle the nozzle closes. And cleaning the dunny means inverting the bottle. I'd have to put the bottle upright and open the nozzle about three times per loo clean - no big problem but certainly inconvenient. On the whole I liked this product, just not the bottle design. Cheap, effective and green (environmentally friendly).
Got the dunny clean and no overbearing fragrances etc. Cheap and effective.
Nozzle closes itself when inverted so inverting bottle to squirt product under rim of loo is a total trial...
