Some cleaners make the job easier.

Cleaning the toilet requires a product that leaves your bowl sparkling and removes any stubborn stains. We've compared gel and liquid cleaners, as well as just water.

How we test

We scan a tile with colour assessment software then stain the tile with simulated faeces, based on a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) formulation. Yes, such a thing does exist.

We then apply the cleaner to the tile and use a mechanical scrubbing arm to clean the tile. The tile is then rescanned to assess how clean the tile is. This is repeated three times and the results are averaged.

Safety first

Always keep your cleaners away from children — ideally in a high or locked cupboard.

If anyone swallows cleaning product, immediately rinse out their mouth with water and phone your doctor or the National Poisons Centre (0800 POISON).
