Safe + Natural, but need frequent re-cleaning
on September 4, 2011
I use many 7th Generation products and love them, so after reading the dire warnings on my conventional toilet cleaner, I decided to try this product. Turns out it works okay...but the results don't last.
For our household of two adults, three toilets, and everybody flushes, the pink ring at the water-line seemed to return within 2-4 days, versus 1-3 weeks with conventional cleaners like Lysol or Clorox. And while the 7th-gen cleaner does leave the bowl clean, it's not as sparkling white as Clorox (my choice of conventional toilet cleaner). So the end-result was the more expensive 7th-Gen cleaner required more work for less-clean toilets. Bad combination, even if it's no longer a poison-control situation if the cleaner splatters on you.
So now I normally (carefully) use the cheaper conventional product, and use the 7th Gen Cypress+Fir only for random in-between cleanings that don't need to last.
7th Generation makes many effective natural products, is an ethical company, and deserves the responsible consumer's support. But while I love their products, I can't recommend this one.
