Tesco active toilet gel fresh

It seems I am permanently in the aisles where the cleaning products live- summer holidays and lots more cleaning!
I always like to add some toilet cleaner in the toilet because not only does it make the toilet smell fresh and clean but I think it does actually make it cleaner. Having always used some of the more well known brands, i decided to try out tescos own make, mainly because I seem to spend a lot of time in the shop, and it was there!
The toilet cleaner itself comes in a plastic 750ml blue bottle with a kind of curved spout for easy application to under the rim of the toilet. I unscrew the screw on/off cap (with child safety feature) and find that it does smell very fresh and smells of pine, rather like the pine disinfectant. The product itself is blue and quite thick so the bottle needs a bit of a squeeze as it's been used, but this is good because it means that it just doesn't all pour out and be wasted.WHAT DOES IT DO?
It claims to:
  • kill bacteria
  • clean the toilet
  • help remove limescale
  • leave the toilet smelling clean and fresh
    Quite simple...remove cap (obviously!) and direct the liquid around the bowl and under the rim- this is easily achieved because of the curved shape. Leave for at least two hours before flushing so that the product can do its stuff.
    Obviously, this should be kept out of the reach of children, and there are the usual warnings for this type of product:
    • Don't use with bleach or other cleaning products...I find this quite tricky because i like to use it just after I have cleaned the toilet, but have found that it's ok if I clean the toilet then flush it before using the product.
    • Use only in the toilet bowl
    • If it comes into contact with skin or eyes, wash immediately
    • Wash hands after use

  • the product has not been tested on animals
  • it containsdisinfectant and perfume
  • tesco will refund money if not satisfied with the product
    Safe for use in septic tanks
    Available instore at Tesco or online at www.tesco.com. The product costs 72p for 750ml
    The product is easy to use and can be directed wherever needed. Because it's easy to direct I also find that there are no splahes onto me or surrounding surfaces although this could also be due to the fact that it's a thick liquid and so not prone to splashing everywhere.

The toilet cleaner does smell really fresh and clean and fortunately when the toilet is flushed, the liquid flushes away with the water so i am not left with blue streaks down the toilet bowl, and it doesn't require rubbing away.I'm not really sure about the product as a cleaner because I tend to clean the toilet before using it, and don't think I would like to rely on it as a cleaner although i am sure that it does clean the toilet still further.
For a good toilet cleaner which is reasonably priced, smells fresh and clean and is easy to use, i would recommend this.

Thanks for reading.
