How to Choose a Toilet Deodorizer - Buying Guide

Before purchasing your toilet deodorizer, we would like you to consider the following four points

Choose One Made Specifically for Bathrooms

Choose One Made Specifically for Bathrooms

Odors arise because of a number of different reasons. 


Most bathroom odors are caused by nitrogen compounds like ammonia or sulfuric compounds like hydrogen sulfide. Toilet deodorizers are specifically manufactured to deal with these types of odors so they would be wisest to choose.

Decide What You Need it for

Decide What You Need it for

For those of you wishing to freshen up your whole bathroom space and rid it of unwanted odors, we recommend getting a stand-up type. 


Stand-up toilet deodorizers come in liquid, bead, and gel types, so you can choose the one that's right for you. Some come in the form of well-designed bottles or card-types, allowing you to choose the one that best accents your bathroom decor. 

Choose between Deodorizers, Aromatic Deodorizers, and Deodorizing Absorbent

There are a few types of deodorizer you can purchase: a regular deodorizer, an aromatic deodorizer, or a deodorizing absorbent.

Regular Deodorizers are Effective at Odor Control

Regular Deodorizers are Effective at Odor Control

These deodorizers suppress the bacteria that cause odors in the first place. Unscented deodorizers are usually of this type. We recommend this type for those of you who don't like the fragrant smell that usually accompanies deodorizers

Aromatic Deodorizers Can Control and Cover Odors

Aromatic Deodorizers Can Control and Cover Odors

These deodorizers come in two types: ones that also suppress the bacteria that cause odors, and ones that only release fragrant chemicals to mask them. In other words, the latter doesn't get rid of bacteria or odor at all but just covers smells.


We recommend this kind of deodorizer for those of you who would like to replace the odors found in their bathroom with a scent of their liking. 


Note that these are different from ordinary air fresheners, which only have strong scents.

Absorbent Deodorizers Trap Bad Smells

Absorbent Deodorizers Trap Bad Smells

These deodorizers use activated carbon or clay to absorb the bacteria molecules that cause odor. We find that these work the best in smaller spaces

Air Fresheners

Air Fresheners

All air fresheners do is mask unwanted odors with a strong scent of their own. 


These don't get to the root of the cause like other deodorizers do. Placing one of these in an enclosed space like a bathroom would inundate it with its scent, making it almost unbearable. We don't recommend purchasing one of these. 

Check How Long They Last

Check How Long They Last

Most products will have how long they last written right on the label. 


This will of course affect cost per day so choose one that suits both your spending needs as well as how long you'd like to continue using the product itself

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

And why they didn't. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

LEC Chemical's Shoshugeki uses the lovable yet irritable Gekiochi-kun character for its package. It uses unscented beads so the deodorizing effect isn't fast acting. Even so, the cost per day ratio on this product is great.

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Hal Industry's Airsophia Hyper Unscented Toilet Deodorizer is unscented but the deodorizer itself has a unique scent to it. We found it rather pleasant but we weren't impressed with its deodorizing ability


The slits in the cap are small enough that the beads won't fall out. It also doesn't take up too much space and will last for about two months. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Chaff Scalop's Pakkun Gel is an environmentally friendly deodorizer that uses a gel made from natto bacteria. The gel is unscented and it does a good job of getting rid of unwanted smells, but it is not fast acting


There have been reviews online saying that it prevents against outbreaks of mold so it's recommended for those of you hoping to get that bonus out of their toilet deodorizer. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Activate Companies' Air Brighten has the ability to not only eliminate odors but also formaldehyde, making it the number one choice for hotels in Japan. Despite that, it rated below average in deodorizing ability. 


The disinfecting alcohol-like smell that comes with it is rather unpleasant when mixed with the smell of ammonia. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Natural Balance's Refreshing Gel is made from an all natural plant extract and has a unique scent similar to that of a mentholated compress


It rated rather low in deodorizing ability overall and wasn't fast-acting. It also needs to be used with the cap off, which doesn't look too appealing. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Daiso's Bathroom Air Freshener was a rather unique one in that it uses its own fragrance to mask unwanted odors, but it doesn't do that good of a job. Most people expressed an opinion of "Well, it's better than nothing."

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

A2 Care's Gel-Type Toilet Deodorizer is a decent product if you're aiming to use it for about two months but we didn't really feel it had an amazing effect. 


It was able to suppress unwanted odors but there were times it would just mix with them, creating quite an unpleasantness. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

S.T.'s Sanity is an unscented bead-type deodorizer, but doesn't work quickly and doesn't suppress odors as much as we had hoped


Since it's made more for industrial use, we found it a little too large for a normal household bathroom. Although there's little fear of it falling over, the slits are a bit wide so be careful not to spill it. 

Products That Didn't Make the Cut

Komaru Binchozumi's Toilet Deodorizer was the only deodorizer-type in the whole examination. The deodorants released need to attach to and absorb odors so it would work wonderfully in tight areas but didn't seem to do a good job at all in spaces about the size of a normal bathroom. 


There's also no change to the look of it at all so there's no way of telling if it's still working or not. We also weren't too pleased with the charcoal scent. 

How We Tested the Products

How We Tested the Products

We purchased the top best-selling Japanese toilet deodorizers from Japanese websites like Amazon and Rakuten and put them to the test!


We tested each product for the following two criteria.


① Deodorizing ability

Pleasantness of scent

Test ① Deodorizing Ability

Test ① Deodorizing Ability

First, we tested each deodorizer for its ability to get rid of odors. 


We placed a sheet of paper soaked in ammonia in a plastic bag, sealed it, then put each deodorizer in it. We then waited a few minutes and had our expert smell inside the bag to see just how good their deodorizing power was. We rated each with a score of A+ to D

The Unscented Gel and Bead-Types Were Slow to Work

The Unscented Gel and Bead-Types Were Slow to Work

The effect of the gel and bead-type deodorizers (the ones that absorb the odor first to deodorize it) was difficult to measure since they usually aren't fast acting and each test was done in only a few minutes' time. 


On the other hand, liquid-type deodorizers were exceptionally fast-acting. For those of you not into fragrant deodorizers, go with an unscented one. 

Koji Matsubayashi
Odor Judge and Specialist
Koji Matsubayashi

"Gel and bead-type deodorizers absorb odors and freshen the room over time, so we couldn't count on them to eliminate odors in such a short period of time. Also, eliminating these odors is not only a question of time but also space. The smaller your bathroom is, the easier it will be for the deodorizer to eliminate odors.


Odor molecules are heavier than normal air molecules so unscented deodorizers should be kept somewhere on the bathroom floor whereas scented ones should be kept on a window sill or other elevated location."

Test ② Was it Pleasant to Use?

Test ② Was it Pleasant to Use?

Next, we tested each deodorizer for how good or bad they smelled after being mixed in with bathroom odors


After recreating odors found in the bathroom and mixing them with our deodorizers, we tested each mixture to see just how awful each smell became and gave them a rating of A+ to D

Strong-Smelling Deodorizers Had a Negative Effect

Strong-Smelling Deodorizers Had a Negative Effect

You can instantly feel the effects of a strong-smelling deodorizer, but the fragrance itself mixed in with the scent of ammonia is less than desirable. Even unscented deodorizers can have a strong smell of alcohol or other active ingredients. We recommend getting yourself one with just a hint of fragrance. 


S.T.'s Citric Acid Plus, coming in first in our examination, is the perfect example of a mild-smelling deodorizer, giving us absolutely no sense of unpleasantness at all

Koji Matsubayashi
Odor Judge and Specialist
Koji Matsubayashi

"There are a lot of overbearing deodorizers out there, made in hopes that they'll be able to mask the unwanted smells in your bathroom, thereby proving themselves a good product. Even some unscented ones have a certain chemical smell to them.


The level of unpleasantness will differ depending on the scent of the deodorizer. Soap-like scents prove to be much more unpleasant than citrus.


Yet, of course, whether a scent is pleasant or not solely depends on the person smelling it. Just make sure you purchase one that suits your liking."
