Q: I have recently been using Seventh Generation toilet bowl cleaner, and I've noticed that a ring of mold and/or mildew or something yucky is developing in the bowl after just a few days. I'm concerned that the cleaner is not getting rid of the nasties in there well enough, and I am now scrubbing my toilet 2-3 times a week. What other green options do I have for a sparkling toilet bowl?

Laura, we hear you. Check out this post we wrote on some top-rated eco-friendly toilet bowl cleaners. From this test lab run by Grist, it appears that Clorox Green Works Natural Toilet Bowl Cleaner came out the front-runner, with Mrs. Meyers coming in second. The comments in the above post also give quite a few shout-outs to dumping Borax in the bowl, swishing it around and leaving it to set, and voila! Clean, sparkling bowl.

I can say that I am currently using Mrs. Meyers in my home and, while I love the scent, I'm not blown away by the cleaning ability. I, too, feel that I need to clean my bowl fairly frequently in order to prevent a build-up, so I'll be interested in what our readers have to say about this.

Suggestions, anyone?
