Toilet cleaners contain the chemicals sodium hypochlorite or hydrochloric acid, or bleach. Citric acid is in a number of "natural" toilet bowl cleaners that rely on the slightly acidic properties of citrus fruits such as lemons and oranges. Citrus acid binds well with minerals and helps remove them from the toilet surface. Bleach and ammonia are two common household cleaners that should never be mixed. They react together to form toxic chloramine vapors and may lead to the production of poisonous hydrazine. What It Does: Chloramine burns your eyes and respiratory system and can lead to internal organ damage. Product ingredients Ingredient. SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE. HYDROCHLORIC ACID.
