How To Clean A Toilet Without A Brush
It is worth mentioning that the best way to keep your toilet clean is to try and prevent it from getting very dirty. Leaving stains to accumulate makes it harder to clean later and the more you might need to have to scrub.
Clean your toilet using bleach
This obviously does not help much if you also need to clean the sides and the whole bowl and that is where the next few methods can be helpful. If you prefer to use bleach, you can still use dilute it with water and use a cloth or a sponge to clean the other parts or the toilet seat.
Remember that bleach is a corrosive and an irritant. Avoid direct contact with skin and make sure you are wearing gloves. It can also irritate your eyes and lungs so make sure the area is well ventilated. Read the instructions on the bleach container and the safety precautions. Do not mix it with other chemicals.
Scrubbing bubbles cleaning gelFor the busy (or lazy) people, comes this simple but brilliant solution. It comes with an applicator that you use by squeezing it to stick some gel to the side of the toilet bowl. Each time you flush, it keeps your toilet clean and fresh. It also gives it a nice smell.
It is a very similar idea to the clip-on type of cleaners but much more convenient. This cleaning gel works best if your toilet flushes using water coming from above and the sides. You should replace it every 1-2 weeks.

Kaboom Scrub Free! Toilet Cleaning SystemThis is actually another smart solution that saves you the hassle of scrubbing. All you need is to simply install Kaboom inside the tank and it will pump cleaning material via the filling mechanism every time you flush the toilet. It does not affect the inner parts of the toilet and is also safe to use in septic toilets. You will only need to replace it every 2-3 months depending on how frequently you use the toilet and how hard the water is in your area. It also leaves a fresh scent in the toilet.
The system costs about $16 dollars and you will later need to buy refills, but, I would rather use it to clean the toilet without a brush than traditional scrubbing.

I find that a nicer solution that having to keep the same brush next to your toilet until one day you realize how dirty it is and you have to replace it.
Cleaning your toilet "naturally"There are other methods available online that include using homemade cleaning material with things like borax and baking soda but I have not used those before and to be honest I would be cautious about a) preparing chemicals myself and b)using those chemicals on my toilet or furniture, etc.
With all the methods and products mentioned in this post, make sure you double check that it is safe to use on your toilet. Specially if you have any additional material or a slightly different toilet from the majority in your country. Also, be careful if you have a wooden toilet seat cover because most of these chemicals are designed for the toilet itself, which is made of porcelain.
