Hydrochloric acid, chlorine bleach, sodium lauryl sulphate, and citric acid are the primary components of The Works toilet bowl cleaning. The Works is intended to disinfect and clean toilet bowls.
The Works toilet bowl cleaning eliminates common household pathogens such as salmonella and E. coli. It also eliminates rust, lime scale, and hard water stains. The Works is compatible with plumbing, septic, and sewage systems.
Originally, The Works was produced in Indiana and sold by door-to-door salesmen. They combined the solution, placed it in clear plastic bottles, and sold it from the trunks of their vehicles.
