Toilet Duck Cleaner
Advantages: Cleans 99.9% germs. Clean and fresh fragrance. Able to apply to hard to reach places under rim.
Disadvantages: Have to repeat daily.
Toilet Duck is a product that I've been using almost exclusively to clean our toilets for the past few years. I initially bought it because I liked the name and I liked the angled neck, but I continue to use it because I think its a good product. It costs me £1.29 to buy a bottle of Toilet Duck from Asda, which I feel is a very good price. The bottle contains 750 mls for the Toilet Duck solution and it lasts about two weeks in my household (which has four toilets) and so I think this is very good value.
This particular version of Toilet Duck comes in a plastic bottle that is a different colour depending on the fragrance of Toilet Duck that you choose to buy. There are three fragrances, namely Fresh, Ocean and Citrus - and having tried all of the, I think the citrus one provides the best freshest, cleanest and long lasting smell. The bottle has an angled neck which kind of double backs on itself and looks like a neck - I've never really got why it's called Toilet Duck because to me it really should be called Toilet Swan (but I guess it doesn't have the same ring to it!). The bottle is recyclable and so can be put in any plastics recycling bin.
From a safety perspective, the Toilet Duck claims to kill 99.9% of germs - which is obviously peace of mind for me as I have a young family who aren't always the greatest proponents of toilet hygiene! In addition, the lid to the Toilet Duck is child proof and so my youngest son (who's only 2) isn't able to get into it, although older children certainly would be able to.
In order to use, you remove the lid and then point the "duck" head under the rim of the toilet and then squeeze. The solution comes out quickly and easily - and its really great to be able to direct the head right up under the rim in those really hard to reach places. The solution then runs down the Toilet Bowl and will stick there until the toilet is flushed. I like to leave it there running down the side of the toilet bowl for about an hour - and then I flush and all of the solution is washed off of the side of the toilet. Although I have no way of testing whether it does kill 99.9% of germs dead, the toilet certainly does smell fresh and clean - and, because of the fragrance I have chosen, citrusy. The smell is mostly of lemon and I think that smell eminates freshness - and so its a nice smell for the bathroom to have. I put down the Toilet Duck every day and this keeps the toilet smelling fresh and clean.
The only negative about using the Toilet Duck Cleaner is that you have to repeat it daily. I have started to use the Toilet Duck discs which sit in the toilet all the time and have cleaner released every time the toilet is flushed - and I find this preferable now.
Overall, I think this is a good product - but consider using the Toilet Duck Discs instead.
Summary: Recommended - but maybe try the discs instead.
