You can only really smell the scent when the water has been sitting overnight. However, it does keep the bad scents that tend to come with bathrooms in humid areas at bay. It also prevents the buildup where the water ring is. I honestly haven't had to clean the inside of my toilet bowl in a while- it's still sparkling. It lasts a good while. The color will stick to the toilet bowl if you leave it in for over a day- but the directions do say that the toilet you're putting it into should be flushed daily, so don't say they didn't warn you! Overall, I will be buying this again. :) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
DO NOT BUY!! This product caused extreme mold/bacteria growth on the inside of both the tanks I used it in. Before using, there was absolutely no growth of any kind in either of my toilets, and we've been here for three years. Now, I have to spend hours cleaning and disinfecting each tank to get rid of this horrible growth!!
After putting these into both toilet tanks, I noticed how extremely blue they were. It was like dumping paint through the toilet. No I���m noticing fungal type growth when the toilet is flushed so I looked in the tank. Sure enough I have some sort of algae growing in the tank and a gross blue blob on the bottom where the tablet was. Absolute garbage. Total waste of money. Never cleaned well, just hid stains under water too dark to see through.
We put 4 of these into our toilets about a month ago and now all 4 toilets are barely flushing. I have to use a plunger to get them cleared nearly after every flush. I am not attempting to remove the blue goo that remains in each tank, its a disaster. Avoid at all costs.
The worst ever. Smells like going into a stadium urinal. Do not buy. The regular Clorox tab is great.
I got this by mistake . Horrible. Don't keep the toilet bowl clean or the smell . I try to take it out it was already gone . Never buying this again . Recommen for sure Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner Tablets with Bleach
So not only did this not do the typical "turn the water blue, make it smell good and stay clean" thing it's supposed to do, but it turned into a blob of slime in the toilet tank and I'm not sure how to get it out now. Lovely. And the phone number they keep providing everyone doesn't work at it's only 330pm in the middle of the week. So disappointed, will not buy again and will be warning all my friends and family about the defective product.
