Earthwise Toilet Cleaner

Pros

Childproof top. Felt it was safer for my respiratory condition.

Cons

Have often lost the nozzle into the bowl

Recommend it?

Maybe, it depends on what you're after.

Spout sucks

Pros

Ecological.

Cons

The bottle cap was stuck to the bottle dispensing spout. Had to remove the whole dispensing spout in order to use it. Thus, wasted heaps of product with each squirt. Didn't much like the smell either.

Recommend it?

No, this product has too many drawbacks.

Very Good on several counts

Pros

It cleans well and smells good and is a NZ product. In an earlier Consumer Survey I recall it being high up on the list and that's why I switched. I'm surprised to see it so low down the list on this new survey.

Cons

Not aware of any

Recommend it?

Yes, I recommend this product.

Seems to encourage stains

Pros

Bowl looks really clean immediately after cleaning

Cons

Within a day or two stains appear which seem to be caused by the cleaner as this did not used to happen with previous cleaners. They are easily removed, but not what I want from a toilet cleaner.

Recommend it?

No, this product has too many drawbacks.

Is the tile test realistic?

Pros

Smell quite pleasant.

Cons

Despite regular cleaning there was a build up of discolouration in the toilet pan over a number of weeks. This discolouration was easily removed by a previously used cleaner.

Recommend it?

No, this product has too many drawbacks.
