The neck of Toilet Duck brand toilet cleaner

Toilet Duck is a brand name toilet cleaner noted for the duck-shape of its bottle, so shaped to assist in dispensing the cleaner under the rim. The design was patented in the 1980s by Walter Düring from Dällikon, Switzerland.[1] It is now produced by S. C. Johnson & Son.

The Toilet Duck brand can also be found in the United Kingdom and in other countries around the world. In Germany, it is known as WC-Ente, previously produced by Henkel,[2] and now by S. C. Johnson (Germany),[3] in the Netherlands and Flanders as "Wc-eend", in France as "Canard-WC", in Spain as "Pato WC", and in Portugal as "WC Pato".

Toilet Duck is now called 'Duck' in the UK and Ireland, as the "Toilet" moniker has been dropped from the name.

In Australia, there were news reports in 2007 that a burglar high on two substances used a Toilet Duck bottle as a sexual aid.[4][5]
