Anything that makes cleaning your toilet quicker and easier will be a welcome addition to any bathroom. But toilet cleaners aren't all created equal – the best ones can remove stubborn stains as well as particle matter, but the bad ones are no better than cleaning with plain water. 

We've tested most of the toilet cleaners on the market to tell you which ones:

  • give you the best soiling removal performance
  • are good value for money.

We've also partnered with Shop Ethical on this update to show the ratings the Ethical Consumer Group gives to each company.
