As one of the frequently used seats, the toilet bowl which is considered to be the "throne" needs some extra attention and care when it comes to cleaning. However, it is one of the loathed household chores there is because compared to simple tasks like sweeping the floor, there is somewhat a negative image attached to the toilet that could be summed up in one word - dirty.

No matter how expensive your cleaner is, if its formula is not good then it could not effectively clean your toilet bowl. A good formula will sanitize, eliminate bacteria, reduce stains, and fight odor.
Liquid, gel, and tablet are the most common types of toilet bowl cleaners. Each type has its own way of application and ease of use.
Liquid cleaners often come in squirt or spray bottles. Squirt bottles usually have an angled nozzle that allows you to put the product on rims or areas that are quite hard to reach. Spray bottles also allow quick and easy application over the area needed to be cleaned and then just scrub away.
Depending how dirty you think your toilet bowl is, you may need to do scrub a little more.
Tablets usually just require you to drop it in the tank and it will do its job during every flush. Note, however, that some tablets have a very strong formula that may cause the rubber in the tank to be damaged.
