Easy Green Toilet Bowl Cleaners

There's a reason why most conventional toilet bowl cleaners say "caution" or "danger" in bold letters on the back of their containers. Toilet bowl cleaners sold in big retailers like Walmart are incredibly toxic. Standard toilet bowl cleaners contain corrosive chemicals such as hydrochloric acid and chlorine bleach.
