Toilet Bowl/Sink Cleaner/Scouring Powders (Porcelain)

Many toilet bowl cleaners contain acids, chlorine bleach, ammonia or other chemical that are harmful. Sometimes lime stains, rust, or other stubborn deposits will form in the toilet bowl. Your regular daily cleaner might not remove these materials. You have two choices: use a powdered cleaner and scrub pad to scour the bowl, or use an Acid cleaner. With very few exceptions, Scouring Powders contain Bleach. To prevent the formation of toxic gas, do not use cleansers containing Bleach with other cleaning products

Toilet bowl/sink cleaner and scouring powders should be disposed of as a hazardous waste.
