The product I am reviewing is a toilet cleaner by Bloo which is part of the Jeyes Group. The toilet cleaner is limited edition as they seem to bring out different toilet cleaners each season. I am reviewing the Fruity Burst one, but you can also purchase Flower Festival as well which is blue in colour. The toilet cleaner comes in a plastic bottle which is smooth to touch. The bottle is clear and you can see the bright coloured liquid in the bottle which is a bright pink colour. On the front of the bottle it states what the product is and that it kills 99.9% of germs and also helps to remove lime scale. On the back of the bottle you will find some information about the product such as how to use it and a list of ingredients. I have used some Bloo products before, mainly the blocks that go in the cistern to colour the water and leave the toilet fresh and clean. I was in my local Poundland store purchasing some bits for work and one of the things I needed was toilet cleaner so I thought I would give this a go to see what it was like, and it was also a good opportunity to write a new review too! As I purchased this from my local PoundLand store, yes . . You guessed it, it cost me just £1.00 for a 750ml bottle which I thought was pretty good.
Using the Product

The bottle has a safety cap on it and the side need to be squeezed in and the lid needs to be twisted before you can actually get the lid off. This is easy for an adult to do, but not for children which is good. I put the nozzle under the rim of the toilet bowl and squeezed the bottle a little as I moved it round the rim. As I did this I could see how much of the cleaner I was applying as it was bright pink and showed up on the toilet bowl. I actually thought this toilet cleaner was really quite runny, compared to others I have used before; perhaps it was me just being silly though. I could smell the fruity smell of the cleaner, this was ok but smelt a little too fake to me. I decided to leave the cleaner for a good 30mins to work and then I would come back to flush it and see the results. I went back to toilet after approximately 30 minutes and I could really smell the fruity smell of the product, I wasn't really sure whether I liked this or not and I think I preferred more of a bleach smell to this as bleach smells cleaner. Most of the pink liquid had run down the inside of the bowl now and a section of liquid had gathered on the bottom of the bowl in the water. I flushed the toilet and immediately it foamed up. As the toilet flushed it washed away the bright pink liquid and left white foam sitting on top of the water in the bowl. The bowl itself did look cleaner and a lot shinier than it had done before so I was very pleased as this clearly cleans the toilet very well. I can't actually comment on the lime scale side of things as the toilet didn't have any lime scale anyway. Since using the toilet cleaner I certainly haven't noticed any lime scale either so this must be doing a good job of keeping it at bay.

Although I'm not really a pink person I think the brightness of the liquid is what attracted me to buying this product in the first place. It is a brand I am aware of and have used before so I did expect the cleaner to be reasonably good and work quite well. In terms of cleaning the toilet bowl I think it did a brilliant job and it left the bowl looking clean and shiny. The toilet cleaner definitely leaves your toilet with a fruity smell, but like me some other people may not really like this smell. As the liquid is coloured you can see where you have applied the product so you can be sure that you don't miss any parts when applying it under the rim of the bowl. I use the cleaner a few times a week and I also apply it on Friday before leaving work and leave it to work all weekend ready to flush the toilet when I come into work on the Monday. In terms of value I can't really complain as I only paid £1.00 for the product. This will probably cost you more if you purchase it from a supermarket such as Sainsbury's or Tesco. I'm not sure I would purchase this product again as I'm not too keen on the smell and I think other products out there can probably do a better job than this one.
