There are several frugal cleaners you can use to save money from buying multiple cleaners. You could simply use a multi-purpose cleaner, apply to the toilet, scrub and flush. You could use baking soda and vinegar. This is a safe and gentle cleaner. It will foam a bit. It is safe, non-toxic and no fumes. Plus it's cheap. If it's really stained, you can let it sit a bit after scrubbing and before you flush. I sometimes add a drop of dawn or dish soap for foaming action and a fresh scent. Hope this helps!

Pour a can of cola type drink in the loo and leave overnight, I am not sure how it works but it really does shift marks!

I found this quite by accident when I had just brought DH home from the hospital after abdominal surgery. I had spent a lot of time staying with him and my potties were a disgrace. He is one of these people who will cough at the drop of a hat, so I didn't want to use strong smelling stuff. I got out my Joy dish liquid (any brand will do), and it made those 30 year old potties look like fine china! We have since replaced the potties, but I am still using dish liquid. You can also use a cheap brand of dishwasher liquid too. I had some I didn't like for the dishes and didn't want to waste it. Worked great on the toilets.

Any kind of soap will do to clean the toilet. I will often use the dregs of shampoo for this. Add a little water to the bottle, swish around and squirt into the bowl. Just use a small amount, then brush and flush. Add a tablespoon of bleach occasionally to remove stains and kill germs.

Believe it or not, one of the best cleaners I've found for a truly grubby, stained toilet bowl is between 4 and 8 Polident denture tablets(or any discount brant that has the same foaming action). Drop them in one at a time, let them do their foaming thing for about half an hour, scrub with toilet brush, then flush.
