Q&A: Can I clean my toilet with a bleach tablet?

Question: Can I clean my toilet with bleach tablets?


Any bleach cleaning product that makes contact with your toilet for more than 10 minutes comes with risks. Prolonged exposure to bleach can damage the surface of your toilet bowl and perish the working parts in the toilet cistern.

Typically, a drop-in bleach tablet is added to the toilet cistern where it continually releases bleach into the water. The bleach water in the cistern is then moved through the toilet with a flush. While this seems like a convenient way to clean a toilet, the bleach tablets do more harm than good to your toilet system and are best to be avoided.

Be extremely careful when cleaning your toilet with bleach and always refer to the cleaning product use information and safety instructions.
