Hi there all.   We’ve been advised to buy toilet teabags from hardware store.  Tried two they’ve no clue what we are on about.   Can anyone advise on Spanish name for these and best place to buy?

I had to google this as I had never heard of them. From what I have read on Utube, you just put ordinary teabags in the tank to clean it.

Hi Jenni really I didn’t realise.   I couldn’t find anything on Google specifically for ‘toilet’ teabags.   So a good old PG tips does the job?   Before a cuppa (dry) or not?   Seems like a daft question but I don’t drink tea so no clue at all 😂

Hi there,  you can get the proper tea bags at Consum, they are down the aisle with toilet cleaners, they are in a green and white tub.  It has WC Net on it. And fosas septicas written on.

Mercadona has 'teabags' for 'fossas septicas' put them down once a month job done.  They are in the aisle with washing powder etc.  Predominant green box

Hi, you don't use ordinary teabags, there are special ones which have various chemicals in them to clean your toilet but they don't upset the balance in your pozzo.

Mercadona sell them, down the aisle with toilet cleaners and if I remember correctly they are called something like fossas septicas and they are around €7 for a box of about 10 or 12. Don't think you want to make an ordinary brew in the loo lol.

Best wishes,

Paul.

So seems I am the only one never to have heard of these, so can you tell me where you put them, in the loo or in the septic tank??
