The toilet cleaner is sprayed around the rim and the bowl of the toilet prior to the use of the toilet brush. The toilet brush is used to scrub at the toilet, removing stubborn stains, and residue biological debris. In recent times, automatic toilet bowl cleaners that clip onto the rim of the toilet and clean with every flush have become more prevalent.
Toilet cleaners tend to be fairly poisonous, and need to be treated with care since they contain disinfectants which can cause skin irritations.
