Disposable toilet cleaning wand pads

Anyone use the toilet cleaning wand that has the throw away pads? The only one we could find has bleach in the pad. Would this bleach be detrimental to the rubber seals on the toilet valve or the dump valves?

Even with the pads that contain bleach there won't be enough of it to harm the seals or valves.

Having said that. We use the Scrubbing Bubbles Fresh Brush Flushables. They work well and we just flush them when done.

We use the Clorox toilet wand with about 2 cups of water in the bowl. Just drop the cleaning pad in the trash when finished and flush the toilet. After 2 years no problems.

We also use the Clorox cleaning pad and have no issues with them.

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I read somewhere that you couldn't use these type brushes due to the fact they would scratch the plastic up.

New to the forum btw.. But been lurking since we bought our TT a couple months ago... Great forum!

i would imagine the plastic brush could scratch the plastic bowl,
we have a china bowl and only use scrubby bubbles spray or similar and dare i say a disposable diaper wipe to clean the bowl.
we also use a toilet brush to clean the seal area and then when its all sparkly we
fill the bowl 1/2 with water and add a table spoon of mineral oil ( like the kind you would take for irregularity)
the flush slowly so the oil can lubricate the seal area.

mineral oil wont hurt it because the seals are designed the handle what a human could eat.......even jalapenos
plus the oil lubes the inner seal on the drain valve
