First of all, toilets are gross. I mean, that's where us humans in the house do our business and I'd rather not have the dog drink out of a toilet. We have five humans in my house and one bathroom. The toilet gets dirty fast. Yuck.
Second, I have to use harsh chemicals to get the toilet clean. I also don't want Shiner to drink after that. We have well water, which has a lot of minerals in it and it leaves buildup and stains the toilet. Scrubbing hard water limescale build-up off of your toilet is no easy task. In fact, I've never been able to get the toilet perfectly free of a ring no matter how hard I try because of the limescale and mineral build-up.

A few weeks ago, I was approached by a company with a product that intrigued me. While this is not the type of product I usually talk about on the blog, I saw it and thought it was a perfect fit for us with the dog's bad habit of drinking from the toilet and all. So, I've been using it for a couple of weeks now.
What is this product? It's Self-Cleen™ Toilet Ring Repellent & Protectant. In short, this stuff is supposed to keep limescale buildup and scum off your toilet for up to 3 months so you can spend less time cleaning with harsh chemicals. It's pet-safe once it's applied to the toilet bowl too, so you can feel a little better if your dog or cat decides they'd like a toilet cocktail every now and then.
Here are a few key points about Self-Cleen Toilet Ring Repellent & Protectant:
- Prevents pet exposure to unhealthy household chemicals found in toilets.
- No chemicals added to toilet-water – pet-safe and septic system safe.
- Eliminates the need to use harsh toilet bowl cleaners, lime remover chemicals and calcium remover chemicals.
- Prevents toilet-rings and hard water build-up for 3-months at a time.
- Toilets become virtually self-cleaning – swish bowl once a month with distilled white vinegar.
- 1 Kit provides protection for 2 toilets for 1 year.
This is definitely one of the most interesting and unique products I've tried before. I'll be honest. At first, I was skeptical. I had a lot of questions and wasn't sure about using it or if it would work. But I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised at how well it's working to keep my toilet clean. The toilet seems oddly clean and more or less the same as it did after I cleaned it a few weeks ago. I'm impressed!
The Self-Cleen Toilet Ring Repellent & Protectant comes with a 2-part kit of spray bottles. It's not a cleaner. You follow the directions and apply a sort of sealant to your toilet bowl after getting it nice and clean. This sealant repels all that stuff you don't want sticking to your toilet bowl.
The only downside I found to the process of using Self-Cleen Toilet Ring Repellent & Protectant was that it needed to dry for a few hours. That can be tricky to time in a household of five with only one toilet.

Even though I'd rather she didn't, I'm a little more relieved when I hear the dog lapping at the toilet bowl. I try to discourage her from doing it as much as possible, but it seems inevitable most of the time. She knows how to open the bathroom door, and no one in the house seems to remember to close the lid on the toilet when they are done.
I'm still quite surprised at how clean the toilet has managed to stay since I've applied the Self-Cleen Toilet Ring Repellent & Proctectant. Usually, it starts getting dirty after about 3-4 days from when I cleaned it last. This is a unique product that I'm happy to have stumbled upon.
