Comments about Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Teflon Surface Protector:

Cleaning the toilet is a disgustingly necessary job - unless you want to expose yourself to countless bacterium and horrific odors (imagine what the guests will say...), you must do it no matter what. Thankfully, I found Clorox's *Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner* to get around scrubbing and having to get a bit too close to the latrine.

These are not miniscule little Alka-Seltzer style tablets that you drop in and let dissolve. Nope, these are pebble-sized clunkers of bleach and bromine that you dunk into the rear corner of your water tank; within five to ten minutes you should begin to notice the effects. My toilet bowl looks a lot shinier, and the hard-water stains are beginning to fade, though gradually. Instead of the musty odor which was beginning to proliferate my bathroom now during these humid summer months, I have a light, refreshing aroma of bleach.

The first time you add it, I suggest flush two to three times in 15 - 20 minutes intervals, just to get it into your toilet's water system. *Use only in toilets that you use, especially ones that get a lot of traffic! These are highly corrosive if let to sit too long.* Also do yourself a favor and DO NOT buy the 'Rain Scent' tablets - they are way, way too strong. Just the plain ones, it'll save you lots of headaches.

Performance
It's not going to get my toilet amazingly shiny brand-new white, but it has gotten it pretty clean all-in-all. We have pretty hard water here in Southern California, but this is lightening up the stains, though it takes a few days for them to completely disappear.

Scent
It's 100 times better than the Rain Scent tablets. Unless you hate the smell of bleach, don't buy the scented ones - they are sickeningly strong.

Stick to the toilet brush and cleaner.

Comments about Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Teflon Surface Protector:

Not good if you have minerals in your water.

Performance
I bought it hoping that this will keep my toilet bowl clean. After all it is a Clorox product. I dropped them in after cleaning the toilet one night. Within a month, we have ring stain again from our water. I'll just stick to the toilet brush and cleaner next time.

Scent
The fumes are overwhelming. Don't use it if you bathroom is near your bedroom, kitchen, or dining room.

Clorox Auto Toilet Bowl Cleaner Freshens up the Bathroom

By 

from Houston, TX

Comments about Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Teflon Surface Protector:

Cleaning the toilet is probably the most disgusting of all household chores but one way to make the task a little more bearable is by using an automatic cleaner. I have tried just about every one of them at some point and one that is as good as any is **Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner.**

**Cleaner Facts and Commentary:**

Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner is a tablet- style automatic toilet bowl cleaner. It is dropped directly into the tank where it combines with the water to release its toilet- bowl cleaning chemicals. With each flush, the chemically treated water is flushed into the bowl, helping to keep it clean between scrubbings and helping to make the bathroom smell fresher.

Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner works well at keeping the bathroom smelling fresh and this is reason alone to give the product a try. You don’t have to remember to do anything because it does the work for you, releasing itself with each flush. As long as a good amount of time (at least 30 minutes) has passed between flushes, the next flush will pack a good amount of freshening power. Flush too quickly and the tablet will not have enough time to send its chemicals through the water. It also helps keep the bowl a little cleaner than usual so that less scrubbing is necessary when it comes time to clean.

Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner is relatively inexpensive and each tablet is good for about three weeks. The tablet is designed to dissolve slowly and last up to a month, but I find that it doesn’t last quite this long. Still, it does remain strong for three weeks and it makes the bathroom smell fresh and clean.

**My Bottom Line:**

Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner is yet another quality product from Clorox and one that earns an easy recommendation. It helps keep the toilet bowl reasonably clean, but its best feature is its ability to keep the bathroom smelling fresh. Regardless of your living arrangements, a little added freshness to the bathroom is always welcome and this Clorox product helps you achieve that goal.

Performance
Help to keep the bowl looking clean between scrubbings

Scent
Chemical scent not the greatest, but better than the alternative

Like A Clean Toilet

Comments about Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Teflon Surface Protector:

I like this product.   First I clean my toilet, flush and let the water level drop and then place the tablet.  I keep it away from my working toilet parts like the directions state and never have had a problem.  I like lifting my lid and the toilet smelling nice and being clean.  Clorox has great products.  This one keeps my toilet smelling fresh and looking clean.  I feel it cuts down on having to clean it manually.  Each tablet lasts about a month.  I normally buy this product when it is on sale and try to use a coupon too.  I think it is a good value to help cut down on manually cleaning toilets.

Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner keeps bathrom fresh.

By 

from small town, OH

Comments about Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Teflon Surface Protector:

I use the Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Teflon Surface Protector in all of my bathrooms.  You need to clean the toilet first, then flush and then drop the tablet into the toilet tank just being careful that it does not interfere with the movement of the plunger and whatever else the mechanism is called.  Do not flush for half an hour.  What I especially like is that it keeps my bathroom and toilet comparatively clean and fresh smelling.  Because we have well water, I do not get any of the hard water mineral build up.  I prefer to use the white tablets, but I know that a lot of people like the blue, but just give me the white tablets with bleach.  I have three bathrooms and keep spare Clorox Tablets stocked in each of them.  As far as the claim that they last 4 months, it just depends on how many people are in your house and just how often the toilets are flushed.  We do not get the 4 months, but that is not a concern I have.  I just want the freshness the Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaners imparts to my bathrooms.  I have found that the Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaners do last longer than other brands and I do believe that they do a better job.  I am very happy with them and will continue to use them and I feel they are well worth the cost.
