“ Manufacturer: Asda / Type: Bathroom Care „
I buy a lot of cheaper brands of toilet cleaners because I find them very good value for money. I don't mind the cheaper ones because I think some of them work just as well as a well known brand and the cheaper ones can save me a little money. I bought this gel for only 80p for a 750 bottle. It comes housed in a black plastic bottle and one that has a child proof top. The gel is a nice blue colour and looks refreshing too. It has a citrus smell and I thought it would probably be more of a perfume smell but I was wrong with this one but I like the smell of citrus smelling toilet cleaners. It does have that fresh smell and one that indicates it is a good one that is going to clean well. Some people don't like the smell of citrus but for me this one suits my home very well indeed. Just a quick squeeze around the rim of the toilet is all that is needed. It does cling well to the bowl of the toilet. I usually leave it for a while and then flush the toilet. I have found that this one does clean the toilet very well and better than I expected it to clean. The nozzle also fits well under the rim with no problems at all. The bottle is easy to get a good grip because the plastic is quite strong and the base of the bottle is quite wide and so sits well in a cupboard or surface and does not tip over etc. It is one that claims to kill 99.9% of germs and lime scale. I have found it does kill germ and does remove limescale too. I do not have such a huge amount of limescale in my toilets and so this gel removes it nicely. For the price of this one I do think it is very good value for money. I think it is cheap enough for most budgets. If you are looking for a good, cheaper toilet cleaner, I think this one would be very suitable. It does leave my toilets smelling nice and fresh with a long lasting smell after the toilets have been flushed. It does take a couple of flushes to remove the gel from the toilet but I don't mind it remaining in the toilet for a while longer. It is not a runny consistency and does not drip from the bottle etc while using it and so the toilet cleaning duty is done in no time at all. I do recommend this cleaner. It is one that I will buy again in the coming months. The bottle can also be recycled after use too. I rate it 5 stars.
With my cleaning business i ask my clients to provide the cleaning products, so i do find myself provided with a variety of cleaning products from all my clients. When it comes to cleaning toilets i have of course been provided with various incarnations of harpic, domestos and toilet duck, but one client this week left this new asda toilet cleaner out which i'd never seen before. I don't personally shop at asda so whether its new or not i'm not too sure. Anyway its called asda ultimate power toilet cleaner, and comes in a black 750ml. All in all its asdas discount version of the harpic powerplus brand. The black bottle resembles the harpic one, and even comes with the red safety cap! Anyway the bottle is listed on asda website for around 80p, which is fairly cheap compared to most loo cleaners such as harpic powrplus which can cost around £1.80 unless its on offer. The bottles front label claims this cleaner will kill 99.9% of germs, remove limescale and clean your loo. The back has the usual list of precautions and instructions, namely to leave to work in your toilet for an hour if you want to kill the germs. Using the product, because it was a new bottle, the safety cap was a bit of a squeeze to get off, which i suppose is good if you want to stop little hand opening it! The bottle is curved to reach under the rim, although its probably not as curved as brands such as toilet duck, with a little manouvering you are able to direct the bottle under the rim which is where you'll find most germs gather. With a good firm squeeze around the loo is imersed in a blue liquid with a citrus fragrance, which again resembles that of the harpic. I lowered the toilet seat and left the cleaner to work and then came back to finish it off when i came to cleaning the bathroom so it had at least a couple of hours application. When i returned i found the liquid had done a fairly good job of clinging to the sides, although it had started drip from below the rim. I flushed the loo and most of the blue liquid had been flushed. With a little bit of a wipe and another flush the loo was left sparkling with the water filled with that just cleaned foam. The fragrance hung around too emphasisng the just cleaned appearance. The toilet was left with no marks and was sparkling so lived to its claims of removing limescale and cleaning. As for germs, i obviously can't see the buggers, but reading the ingreadiants it contains dissinfectant, so you safely assume that they have all been killed off too. All in all, this is a very good toilet cleaner for the price. It seems to clean just aswell as harpic or domestos but is obviously a lot cheaper in price so i would definitely recommend this.
It was normally a brand named product I used for this job until about 6 months ago. I think it was more because at the time there didn't seem to be any Supermarket ones that I could see when looking around but thesedays there is a Supermarket brand version of every product I think. Due to the price of this I thought I may as well have a shot at buying this and if I didn't think it was any good then just don't buy it again. This cost me 78p for the 750ml bottle. I usually buy the brand named one when it is on offer for £1 but haven't seen it for that price for a while. Normally the brand named ones can cost around £1.30 or perhaps more. The bottle for this isn't anything all that interesting. Just a plain black bottle with a label on the front and back. All looks a bit dark and dull really. The neck of this bottle is angled so easy enough to aim this under the rim of the toilet and apply this. So I tipped this up a bit, squeezed the bottle and then applied this around the Toilet bowl. It seems to be a thick Gel but not all that thick and this run down the bowl a bit after applying it. I guess it's meant to do this anyway to clean the bowl as it dribbled down. After a few hours I can't see any of this on the bowl and it is shiny enough. The scent of this is nice enough. It is a kind of Lemon scent and is nice enough and fresh. Not too strong a scent but you can still smell this a little even after you have flushed the Toilet a few times. This does a good Toilet Cleaner which cleaned (as it should have done) and gently scented. I can see my buying this again as it's just as good as the brand named ones but a little cheaper as well.
I love cleaning bathrooms and toilets. You really feel your sense of worth when you are on your hands and knees feverishly rubbing away at dried on stains and dubious lumps around the bowl. One of life's less thankful tasks is rewarded with the satisfaction of having a spankingly clean toilet and a sense of pride. You almost want to invite people around to your house just to show them your handywork. Toilet cleaning can be made easier if you rely on good products. My preferred choices are Toilet Duck and Parazone, but a trip to Asda a few weeks ago resulted in the purchase of this beauty. A snip at seventy odd pence and a generous sized bottle too, rivalling Tesco in the price stakes. You could be forgive for thinking you have just picked up a litre of car oil from the odd packaging. Why don't they make the bottle brown and yellow then at least people will know what it is for? The screw-top lid keeps the liquid locked away and the dispensing of the liquid is pleasing, as it comes out in a controllable burst. The viscosity is thick enough to stick to the toilet bowl and it clings tightly before gradually seeping down into the water at the bottom of the toilet. The blue liquid is bright and exciting and this pleased me also, as I like to see blue in my loo, it gives the toilet that fresh feeling. The smell is not overly clinical, there is a punchy bleachy smell, though I would have hankered one that smells of strawberries and vanilla. It has worked quite well in the times I have used it. The liquid has shifted some tidal marks and also keeps the inner bowl looking new and fresh. I thick Toilet Duck has the edge on overall cleaning performance, but this product does also tackle germs so it is nice to know it is getting rid of bacteria while leaving a pleasant smell. I would buy this again based on the price, but I would like better packaging next time!
When it comes to cleaning, my mate, who I'm staying with at the moment is as bad as me. She's a complete clean freak and I kid you not you would be shocked at all the different bottles and tubs etc of cleaning things we have around and about the place just to clean one house! It's a bit mad really thinking about it lol. However her having four dogs you do feel you have to be extra careful I guess which explains the most part of her habit I think! However this product she picked up in Asda the other day as it was buy one get one free and we both hate nothing more than a grubby smelly toilet and in her house we have two of them! lol. The Packaging: Black plastic bottle with a push down and unscrew red lid/cap to the top of it. On the front of the bottle it has a light grey label and on that I'm told that it is Asda Power Toilet Cleaner 'Removes tough and stubborn stains. Eliminates bad odours in your toilet bowl', and that it is 750ml in size. On the back of the bottle there is a white label and on that I'm told a bit about the product, directions for use, ingredients, warnings and cautions are all given and contact details for Asda are of course listed as they always are on Asda's own brand of products! Nice enough bottle and I do appreciate the angled nozzle to the top of it to get it under the rim of the toilet with total ease! Using It: Well this is a runny dark blue liquid and it has a sort of lemon menthol sort of smell to it. It is a pleasant, clean and fresh smell and does squeeze out of the bottle with total ease. It's glossy but none oily and although runny enough it does look like a gel so it isn't like water or anything like that. All you do with this is squirt it under the rim of the toilet and leave it for a couple of hours or overnight. You can of course use this to spruce up the toilet more quickly and in that case all you do is squirt it on grub or where you feel it's smelly, leave it for a couple of minutes and then scrub it with a toilet brush. To make sure you kill germs though this does need to be left a minimum of 1 hour though. I find this easy to use, have used it for a couple of hours to get the toilet looking and smelling fresher and it's worked. I have left it overnight and the same.... I have felt it to work excellently. I have also had a dirty toilet after using it too and squirted some on and then scrubbed the loo out and flushed it and basically any way you use this makes the toilet look and smell fresher! There's not alot you can say about this though really! It cleans toilets and leaves them looking immaculate though you have to work with it and it does nothing on it's own really. So if you have debris in the toilet it doesn't remove it all by itself and you do need to wipe and rinse of course. I think this is a great product and the reason I like it so much really is the lovely and not too heavy aroma it possesses! Only available in Asda stores costing 75p a bottle unless it's on offer.
