Advantages: does the job, pink! price
Disadvantages: scent could be stronger, super foaming does not last 4 weeks
Bloo Acticlean is a range of cistern blocks for your toilet. They are available in different colours/scents but I will be discussing the 'Fresh Pink' blocks.
These cistern blocks should be placed in your cistern at the opposite end from the water inlet and left to settle for 10 minutes. Once the toilet is flushed, the cleaning agents will leave your toilet sparkling and prevent a build up of limescale from forming. A foamy substance should be evident on the surface of the water and there is a promise of pink, floral scented water.
The blocks are presented in a pink, cardboard backed pack and should be stored away from children and in a cool, dry place. Depending on where you buy the blocks from, they may either be round or flower shaped. Each block is said to offer 4 weeks of freshness.
~Price and Availability~
A 2pk of 38g cistern blocks can be purchased from supermarkets and stores including B&Ms and Wilkinsons. Asda offer the flower shaped blocks priced at £1.50 whilst Wilkinsons offer the round shaped blocks at £1.78.
Whilst I can be a little bit untidy, I am very 'obsessed' with keeping my bathroom clean. My worse nightmare is for someone to drop by and for my toilet to be unclean. I would be mortified! Anyway, as well as investing in a good quality bleach/toilet cleaner, I also buy cistern blocks. I favour the Bloo brand so this was my first choice of cistern block. I bought my 2pk of pink cistern blocks from my local B&Ms store for 89p which I consider a brilliant price.
The instructions for using these cistern blocks are very simple to follow. They can cause irritation to skin so I normally pull open the pack and tip a block into the cistern before giving my hands a wash (just in case!). The blocks come in pink pleated wrappers which do not need to be taken off as they dissolve in the water. The solid block offers a light bleach smell.
Once the block has settled for 10 minutes, the toilet is fine to use and flush. These blocks are perfect for keeping my toilet fresh. I do not rely on them to give my toilet are thorough clean and always use in conjunction with my toilet cleaner and brush regularly. Between flushes though they do the job nicely. When the toilet is flushed, an intense pink burst of water is sent whoosing around my toilet bowl. It settles at the bottom in a thick layer of foam which hids the bottom of my toilet bowl nicely and looks much nicer than plain water. The foam lasts well but does disappear eventually leaving pink tinted water. My boys aren't happy with this but if I clean the toilet, I get to choose the colour!
My toilet does look clean and slightly sparkly with each flush. The blocks do not have the power to remove any toilet marks but do limit the amount of limescale well. I wouldn't say that the scent is very strong when flushed. A very subtle floral tone is mixed with a clean but not overpowering bleach scent. As with everything, the effects of a cistern block start to fade. For the first week or so, the colour was intense but this gradually faded. I have been using my current cistern block for around 3 weeks and there is very little foam offered and the pink colouring is very pale. I do feel that the block is still keeping my toilet fresh between cleans but not to the same extent as when new. This isn't a major issue but it is worth noting that you don't really get four weeks of 'super foaming'.
89p is a small price to pay to keep my toilet looking fresh between cleans. I like the pink coloured blocks but would like to try the other colours to see if they were a little stronger in scent.
Thanks for reading :)
