An enzymatic automatic bowl cleaner is a type of toilet cleaning product that utilizes enzymes to break down and eliminate stains, deposits, and odors in a toilet bowl. Enzymes are biological molecules that act as catalysts, facilitating chemical reactions. In the context of toilet bowl cleaners, enzymes can target and break down organic matter, such as bacteria and other substances that contribute to stains and unpleasant odors.
The term "automatic" implies that the cleaner is designed to work continuously over time with each flush. These cleaners often come in the form of tablets, gel discs, or other similar configurations that can be placed in the toilet tank or directly in the bowl. When the toilet is flushed, water activates the cleaner, releasing the enzymatic formula into the bowl to help keep it clean and fresh.
