Jeyes Bloo Acticlean
Advantages: smells nice, foams up to keep loo clean after flushing, helps prevent limescale, hygienic
Disadvantages: need replacing fairly frequently
To be honest I was actually quite annoyed when I realised I had bought this product, as I had mistakenly picked it up instead of the rim block re-fill pack. They look very similar and I was in a rush so didn't pay too much attention to the packaging. These cistern blocks are available from most good supermarkets and cost me £1.62 for a pack of two from Tescos.
The Bloo Acticlean cistern blocks are an innovative product that are designed to keep your toilet clean and fresh every time it gets flushed. Instead of having a block attached to the rim of the toilet bowl you simply pop one of these blocks inside your cistern and let it do its thing. To me, this seems a lot more hygienic as you only have to handle the new sealed block, and you won't have to be cleaning a block holder as well as saving yourself the eye sore of having it hanging there over the edge.
Jeyes say: "Add zesty lemon freshness and clear foamy water to your flush! Bloo's freshest ever formula is pcked with super cleaning agents that prevent limescale and release thick foam with every flush so your toilet stays sparkling clean for longer.
Release the freshness.
+ No need to remove the pleated wrapper as this will dissolve in the water.
+ Drop the block into the cistern at the opposite end of the water inlet by the float.
+ Allow 10 minutes for block to settle before flushing.
+ For best results clean the toilet thoroughly to remove existing limescale deposits."
Each block is small and compact, weighing in at 50g. They are available in a choice of three 'flavours'; Original, Purple, or Citrus. I have the citrus ones which are a mottle white and yellow colour combination. It doesn't really matter about the appearance as once you've placed the block into the cistern you won't ever see it again! The blocks are individually wrapped within a thin plastic feeling layer. You should keep the block within this wrapper even as you put it into the cistern, as the wrapper will actually just dissolve away. This then allows the block to activate every time you flush the toilet.
This has proved to be a remarkably easy way to keep my loo fresh and clean, and minimises the effort required in undertaking the nasty job of cleaning the toilet. I live in a hard water area so limescale build up can be quite a problem, but since using these blocks my loo has seemed sparkly clean and stays looking clearer for longer. I still give it a good bleach and make sure it's scrubbed up properly, but this is a reassuring top up that gives you peace of mind that the area will stay fresh and clean in between uses.
It states on the packaging that the blocks can last up to four weeks, and mine lasted roughly for that amount of time, coming in at around 3 - 4 weeks each time I've used one. It is really easy to tell when a block needs to be replaced, as you won't get the foamy bubbly layer after you flush, and the water will run clearer. It's great that there is no waste from this product other than the outer packaging, as the product itself is designed to dissolve away as it cleans.
This is a simple and easy way to keep your loo clean and fresh, and I'm glad I made the initial mistake of buying them! I'll be sticking to these cistern blocks in my future purchases.
