HurriClean Review

HurriClean is a pour-in toilet cleaner. While drop-in toilet cleaning products have existed for decades, HurriClean is a one-time use packet of “real fruit acids and washing sodas” which supposedly clean your tank and bowl with a single flush. Although it sounds too good to be true, it might actually work if your expectations are realistic and the type of water in your area cooperates.

Unlike common toilet bowl disks which last hundreds or thousands of flushes, HurriClean is a one-time use powder which is poured into the toilet’s tank. After it foams, you’ll let it sit for at least six hours, then flush. How much improvement your tank shows will vary greatly. The bowl probably benefit as much, but that will depend on the kind of stains present there.

Mold, iron stains, and hard water stains should be reduced in some cases. If you don’t find that the first treatment works, you may want to extend the amount of time that HurriClean remains in the tank before flushing – or perhaps pour all three packets in for a “shock” treatment.

Because HurriClean soaks in the tank, that is where you should expect the most improvement. It merely flows over the bowl once, and may not provide as much deep cleaning there as in the tank.

HurriClean can be found in stores and on Amazon, where it holds a rather unimpressive 2.4 star rating among online reviewers. There seems to be a rather wide range of opinions on whether or not this product actually works. I have heard that it “did nothing” as well as some who said it “is a very good product.” The differences in opinion seem to be affected by the amount and type of of buildup in the tank, as well as the type of water in your area.

As you can see in my video below, I was able to get two flappers which were covered in a green buildup to revert to white, although the sediment in the bottom and the bowl didn’t show much improvement.

In this before and after, you can see that the flapper and bolt were both cleaner after a treatment.

If your expectations are realistic, you may find that HurriClean gets the job done, and at least improves your toilet tank. From reading various reviews, it is obvious that a wide array of opinions exist on HurriClean. In my case, I saw some cleaning occur in the tank, but no improvement in the bowl. I assume that minerals and water hardness may play a key role in HurriClean’s effectiveness.

If you’re on the fence, you can find HurriClean in some stores for about $10 for a three pack, which should allow you to try it without much of an investment.

Alternatives

There aren’t many tank drop in products like this, although some customers have had luck with Clorox Control Bleach Crystals, which can be used for a wide variety of applications.

  • Gladys Adriaanse

    Just wondering if you put a little in the bowl and the rest in the tank, if that might make a difference for the bowl ring?

    • Linda Surface

      I think that’s what I’d try, why not, couldn’t hurt!!!!

  • Stan

    It works like crap

  • Louise Ebbelaar Kerr

    Did a great job on the tank BUT nothing for the bowl. And how can it since it has no contact until you flush and then zip!! it is gone without a chance todo anything. I am sorry I bought it. I DO like Gladys’ question, tho.

  • Kitty Duggan

    I bought Hurriclean, followed directions. It ddn’t foam at all and my water is not hard nor does it have a lot of minerals (Chicago regular water). It didn’t whiten anything, it was a total waste of money

  • Mike Thompson

    Save your $$$$$ Go buy some vinegar for cheap and it will do a better job. This product does NOT deliver!!!

  • Carolyn Morgan

    Wow thanks for showing how it works. After seeing that, I would probably try pouring the powder in the toilet bowl, if I had a way of blocking the water – to make the level of the water go up to the rim. A wadded up old shower curtain, or similar object. Then taking it out before flushing. The toilet I’m trying to whiten is badly stained from the water line up (rent house)

  • Carolyn Morgan

    To get the sediment out of the bottom of the tank, get a long handle cleaning brush and sweep the sediment toward the flapper, as you flush. Then pour 1/4 cup of bleach after wards and just let it sit for 30 minutes.
