I can’t say I am over the moon exactly with this latest toilet cleaner my dear other half has decided to buy. For a start, it’s in a pink bottle and is too gaudy looking for my liking. The cleaner in question is Bloo Fruity Burst Toilet Cleaner and she bought it when she went out shopping alone, paid just over a quid for it and has been using it in the loo ever since. There are 750ml of cleaner in this rather large bright pink bottle and it has a shaped ‘head’ to navigate it right round the loo rim. The cap has a child safety lock on it.The reason I am don’t particularly like this toilet cleaner is because it reminds me of the toilet cleaners the cleaning ladies used to use in the boys loos when I was at school. It has a horrible old fashioned sort of chemical floral smell that catches right at the back of my throat and sits in my nostrils. It is well and truly hideous and cloying and seems to permeate the entire house and even manages to travel downstairs when she’s put some in the toilet bowl. It is not pleasant and I’d rather we just switched right back to using the plain bleach we’d been using previously. My other half, on the other hand, loves it. She says the smell is fresh and ‘natural’ but there is no way I could possible describe it as a natural smell – it smells like death (the smell of flowers in a funeral parlor, together with the smell of formaldehyde).
As far as it’s ability to clean is concerned – it does an okay job. No better and no worse than any others we have used in the past. It is a thin liquid, runs down the sides of the bowl easily and won’t cling. If I had my way I personally wouldn’t buy this again and I’d happily chuck this out now, purely and simply because the smell makes me want to gag.Overall, I’m definitely unimpressed and do NOT recommend it under any circumstances.
