Friend said they read that if you take all the bits and bobs of leftover solid soap (such as hotel bars and such) and put them in a plastic bottle with holes and place in toilet tank, it will flush with soapy water and help keep the bowl clean.

Could this possible work at all?

Soaps for humans is pretty mild and has emollients (oils) to keep skin from getting dry and scents. It's such a mild cleaning agent that I strongly doubt it will have any effect on keeping the bowl cleaner....and the added chemicals needed to be skin-friendly are only going to be detrimental for a toilet tank. I'm also not a fan of putting anything in the tank except clean water ....anything else (including in-tank toilet tablets etc) seems to mess with the lifespan of the flapper and/or float. --73.2.xx.xx

That's true Tim - so I was hoping plain soap would be helpful instead of harmful. Oh well.

This is for home not a rental! --173.28.xx.xxx

Wonder if it would leave soap scum? --76.129.xxx.xx

I would think it would wreak havoc on your toilet.

Not only the soap scum but think about the smaller pieces floating out and getting stuck in places. Then they collect other things. Maybe more soap, maybe some other stuff.

I hear that most soaps work better with warm water. Something else to consider. --107.147.xx.xx

One of the things I do when I take possession of a unit with stained toilets is to pour in a cup or so of bleach into the bowl, close the toilet lid, and leave it soaking for a day or more. Does wonders.

Yeah this is not for stains or in lieu of regular cleaning. I just wanted something that worked on the daily - not that blue carpola or other stuff that just colors the water without doing anything, really.

Oh well. The point about hot water is well-taken, soap turns to jelly in cold water doesn't it? And we don't even use bar soap, I'd have to buy it. Now I won't. --173.28.xx.xxx

W,

Soap scum, like a tub or that shelf in the shower. Even the bathroom sink.

A surfactant like one drop of Dawn makes water wetter.

The problem we have is CALCIUM/LIME build up. Both come from hard water and urine.

The right blue stuff (not all are worthy) in the tank can help reduce lime and provide a little bleach.

Brad, what blue stuff do you use that doesn't hurt the rubber and plastic in the tank?

Right now I tell tenants they can not put cleaners like that in the tank because of the damage it usually does.

If I found some that wasn't harmful I would probably supply it just to keep the toilets in better shape. --107.147.xx.xx

I used dish soap left overs from air-bnb ville to refill the blue crapola bottles, it takes an hour to refill 12 bottles, these last 4-6 months. Slippery savings hehe, Menards has the Zep Product. --184.59.xxx.xx
