Hands down the best toilet bowl cleaner ever. Yes, it's cheaper than the popular brands. No, it doesn't have fancy scents to choose from. No, it doesn't have the gel liquid consistency that will "cling" to the bowl. But this stuff will clean even the grossest and stubborn toilet bowl stains. For a really tough job, let it sit for at least a half hour before scrubbing. You will be impressed and you'll never go back to crappy Clorox or scrubbing bubbles again. I guarantee it.

This is the best toilet bowl cleaner I have ever used. It cleans everything out of the bowl even without scrubbing. I have hard water and I have been searching for so long for a cleaner that would effectively remove rust and the works is by far the best I have found.

It Works! I like to use this as a finishing toilet cleaner so after I use a gel cleaner or something else because this really just gives the toilet that ending cleaning it needs.

The only toilet bowl cleaned I’ll use! It’s the only one that actually works. Never have had any issues with this stuff. It may not smell the greatest but it does clean well. The other name brand ones are horrible. I’ve tried them all and always still have a ring left.

I am not a fan of this toilet bowl cleaner. It has a very thin consistency and doesn't do a good job of cleaning. The one thing I liked is that it doesn't have a strong smell. I bought it at Walmart .

This product is amazing. We had stubborn iron deposits in our tub, sink and toilet. I literally used everything from bleach to 'CLR' to 'Awesome' to try to get the yellow out and nothing worked. My neighbor recommended The Works (I hadn't heard of it before). I wasn't sure if it was worth it because I bought it at Dollar General lol. I was blown away. I used a few squirts and let it sit in the toilet bowl and sink....the yellow washed itself away. I didn't even use any of the sponges and scrub rags I bought! I really don't get excited about cleaning products but I texted pics to my boyfriend to show him how clean everything was. This is a really strong chemical so I would use it for heavy jobs. This would literally replace all of these extra cleaners I have in my utility closet. My neighbor rehabs houses for a living so this explains how he knew about this product. I'm so surprised it's not more popular.

My family has owned a cleaning business for well over 30 years. "The Works" has been a staple cleaner for as long as I can recall. Why? Because it works...REALLY WELL! With out any effort on your behalf. Have you wondered how to get the grout in your shower clean? Maybe the grout in the tiles where coffee has been spilt over and over not the kitchen tile? Stains near the front door (once again grout) it can cost $$THOUSANDS$$ to have grout professionally cleaned. And the chemicals are always $$$$ if you check at the hardware p/tile store. Apply "The Works" in a think line along the grout and let it sit... varies depending on the stain. (10-30 minutes) while with a wet cloth to remove cleaner and scrub the grout w water to get up any last bits. This is e easiest and least expensive answer. WORKS EVERY TIME!!!

The works is the best toilet bowl cleaner I have ever used! Where I live I am on a well for water and when you are on a well there is a huge possibility you will have high levels of rust in your tap water. This product removed all of the rust and hard water stains from my toilet and from my shower. It does have to be used in a well ventilated area. I have never used a product that is so inexpensive but works so well. I will always repurchase this product

This is the only cleaner that cuts through line and rust left behind by my hard well water.
It's the only product I buy to get the hard ester stains out of my toilet, tub and sink.
It's smell is harsh so I wear gloves and a mask so it doesn't touch my skin either.
You can find this at the dollar tree for literally a buck. Lasts me 3 weeks per bottle though.

How effective is this on hard water build-up? We are dealing with this in the bowl and nothing seems to get them off.
