China Commode cleaning

I've noticed some water stains on our commode under the rim. I understand I can't use bleach in the coach because of the lines. So, what are others doing to remove and clean the commodes on their coaches? Can you use any regular toilet bowl cleaner that doesn't contain bleach?

Thanks!

I have been using The Works Toilet bowl Cleaner for years upon years.

Works for us!

I hate to fly in the face of accepted knowledge, but here goes.

RV toilets (ceramic), piping and tanks are all made out of the same materials as residential plumbing.

Have been using bleach products in our RV's and boats since our first RV in 1969.

Also bleach is easy to use and it is important to keep things easy for the "toilet brush" operator.

What about after it leave it the plumbing system of the RV?

It's in the sewer just like the chlorine in the water supply. Chlorine is the active component of most bleaches and the major water purification chemical. ;-)

One of the steps in sanitizing water tanks is to use bleach for the lines and tanks. The tanks are designed to be compatible with bleach. Use it with no problems!
