The Clorox Toilet Wand is a fantastic and convenient tool to get a toilet clean.  The pads come pre-loaded with cleaner on the detachable cleaning head.  These disposable cleaning heads actually can scrubb inside the bowl and under the rim.  While the cleaning heads can't be flushed, the versatility of the Clorox Toilet Wand makes it a great choice for cleaning toilets.

I cannot tell you how much I love this product.  I always love to find a product that can maintain the clean and extend the amount of time between deep cleanings.  Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel is my go-to guy for the job.  Just stamp a bit of gel on the inside of the toilet bowl.  The gel gradually dissolves after each flush, freshening the toilet bowl and preventing build-up.  Each stamp lasted about 7 days in my house, with 6 gel stamps in each wand.  This is definitely a product that my home won't be without.

5. Best Last Chance Toilet Cleaner: Lime-A-Way Toilet Bowl Cleaner

Have a toilet that has been neglected for so long that the build-up is beyond being able to be cleaned?  For last chance toilet bowls, Lime-A-Way Toilet Bowl cleaner is an intense product.  Even with the intense and caustic ingredients, toilets that are very far gone may need multiple applications.  Please use caution with this product and follow the instructions.  This is super heavy-duty stuff.  But when you have a toilet that nothing else will work for, turn to Lime-A-Way Toilet Cleaner.
