Toilet cleaner for fosse safety

Post by Inkflo on Fri Aug 01, 2014 4:52 pm

Having tried almost every product known to clean the loo with no danger to the fosse, I had yet to find one that actually cleaned the toilet bowl.
This week, I tried one of those little blocks that go in the machine with the wash and help remove stains & keep the whites white, and they worked a treat.
The one I used was K2R and I just left it in the toilet for about four hours, brushed around the bowl, flushed and it came up sparkling white.
It doesn't contain bleach, and I figured that if it's safe for the clothes, it probably can't do a lot of harm to the fosse bugs.
I'm going to carry on using it & keep an eye on the fosse, but fingers crossed that I've found a solution to my loo cleaning.

Interesting, though we've never heard of your little K2R blocks (we just put up with stained and off white clothes!) Loo cleaning is a problem when you have to look after the fosse so we'll be looking to try your idea out.

We were told once by an 'expert' that using French bleach (jarvel) wasn't too detrimental because it's not very strong, but we've been reluctant to go with that theory.

Sadly, we have had loads of problems with using bleach even sparingly, and our fosse is very modern and I never pour fat into the sink, don't flush anything I shouldn't etc. We also renew the enzymes regularly.
Mind you, we do have four loos, so perhaps that doesn't help.
The K2R tablets are from SuperU and can be found with the stain removers in the clothes washing aids.

Local U Express, I assume SuperU have them with the washing stain removers, blue & white box.
Have also seen them in Cora, so I assume they will be in most supermarches.

I sometimes wonder if the old fosses are better.
