Out of all of the places in my house that need cleaning, the bathroom is one of my least favorite. To make the process easier, I rely on cleaning products that make the experience easier. Like every other cleaning product there is half of an aisle at the grocery store dedicated to bathroom cleaner products, but whether you’re looking to clean the grime out of the tub or shine up the toilet we’ve got the scoop on the best bathroom cleaner products.
Tub and Tile Bathroom Cleaners
The shower, tub and tile can all be cleaned with the same cleaners usually. Whether it’s a gel or a cream, Soft Scrub tops the charts for a tub and tile cleaner. The Soft Scrub Gel with Bleach receives an impressive 92/100 rating and the classic Soft Scrub Cream Cleanser with Bleach receives a 91/100 rating. These work great for sinks and counters, but can also be applied to the tub with a sponge. Following close behind is the Scrubbing Bubbles Foaming Cleaner (90/100). Since the foaming cleaner is a spray on it will stick in the shower and tub better than Soft Scrub.
If you are looking for a natural cleaner for your bathroom to cut down on the amount of noxious fumes, Method Antibac Bathroom Cleaner is an au natural favorite with a rating of 90/100.
“I feel that it cleans the toilets and showers effectively and the light fragrance lingers awhile. It feels good knowing that I am using a cleaner that kills bacteria and cleans the bathroom without harming the environment and that I and my family are not inhaling anything that can harm us” — bugze, Reviewer since 2009
Toilet Bowl Cleaners
With four boys in the house, keeping the toilet clean is a challenge. While I usually clean the outside of the toilet with a multi-surface cleaner, I count on a good toilet bowl cleaner to get the inside sparkly clean too. Topping the charts is the Lysol brand of cleaners, with the highest rating for the Lysol Cling Gel Toilet Bowl Cleaner (94/100). The Lysol toilet cleaners are thick and cling nicely to the sides of the bowl. The cleaner then has more time to clean the bowl, making light work of the task.
“There are a lot of reasons to buy Lysol Cling Toilet Bowl Cleaner. It is easy to open, has an angled spout, the thick gel clings nicely, it smells wonderful, and it does an efficient job of cleaning. Two thumbs up on this cleaner.” —Suze51, Reviewer since 2007
Don’t like having a toilet brush hanging around in the bathroom? The Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush 2-in-1 Toilet Cleaning system, features a disposable toilet brush that comes with the cleaner already in it. Those who have used the system rate it almost as highly as Lysol toilet bowl cleaners with a high 92/100 rating.
“I love the fact that the brush holder hangs on the side of the toilet, out of the way, and OFF the floor for no nasty bacteria to grow! I also love the replacement brushes- they are flushable, and already have cleaner on them!” —dierking10, Reviewer since 2010
