Should You Use Dishwasher Tablets To Clean Your Toilets?
If you are out of time, low on cleaning products, or expecting guests, dishwasher tablets could give your toilet a quick clean, as they're designed to dissolve stubborn stains.
Some homeowners claim dishwasher tablets can damage the cistern, but others have used them to unclog their toilet, clean the bowl, and leave a fresh scent with no trouble.
First, pour boiling water into the toilet bowl to soften up any clogs. After a few minutes, drop one or two dishwashing tablets into the toilet bowl and let them dissolve.
Finally, scrub off the stains with a toilet brush. For stubborn stains, put on gloves, add another tablet, scrub off any remaining stains, and finish with a good flush.
