Do you use blue tablets for your toilet tank?
I do, and I think it’s classy. They say it’s not good for the environment but, oh well. Gives the water a nice color (not the one from the link’s picture) and also helps to clean the toilet.
If you do, what’s your favorite brand? If you don’t use blue tablets, which toilet disinfectants or products do you use?
If you don’t use any, you need to know that you are a pig and your toilet is unhappy :(

I just use the white ones. I continue using them, even though a plumber once came to fix my toilet and said they erode the tank components, and to quit using them.

Most plumbers will tell you not to use toilet tank drop ins (blue or not) as they can degrade the seals in your toilet.
I don't use them, because they are toxic, I don't just say "oh well" to the environment, and if I forget to put the lid down on the toilet, I don't want the dog or cat to drink from it.
I just actually clean my toilet.

I received the same guidance from my plumber. It's not true for all toilets, but for ones that have rubber components, the chemicals erode the rubber and will cause your toilet to malfunction.

You shouldn't use them.
It is important to be able to 'inspect' your piss or shit for any changes and those colours can and do distort what you see.

My mom and sister used them. My roommate thinks it a great idea to put isopropyl alcohol into the toilet after you clean it. We have little isopropyl alcohol bottles all over. She insists we rub down our keys and phones before we enter the house. She wipes the egg carton with it. Once we clean something, she sprays the alcohol and wipes it...one last shot to save us from certain death by plague. 🤦♀️

I use Duck brand blue + fragrance. I had no idea they were bad for the environment or my toilet. I use them in hopes that they will cut down on the mold/scum that grows inside the toilet tanks.

If you have rubber seals in your toilet tank, the bleach in the cleanser tabs will cause them to harden and curl.
Then the seals won’t seal, and your toilet will run no matter how many times jiggle the handle.
Running toilet = spike in your water bill.

They seem so Hyacinth Bucket Striver Class, tinted water to show you —in color— that it's clean.
The toilets are cleaned every day or two, first wiping down the exterior/dry parts with disinfectant; then applying bleach gel under the rim, let it sit, and later brush and flush. The tanks are the high, wall-mounted sort; I'm not getting a ladder every month or however often to put something in the upper tanks that will erode the rubber gaskets opening to the toilet.
Carry on with your blue scented signaling and I'll carry on with my method.

R15 - you aren't supposed to if there is a draught. Some greenies in LA don't flush all day, but I flush after 2 or if I know I will be peeing elsewhere all day. Also before I go to bed and I wash and air the bathroom. I mean, it's what I did in LA. Now, I am in a place with lots of rain and also I live with a roommate so in the off chance she needs to use my bathroom, I flush every time.

OP is a relic from the 1950s.
The blue tabs are environmentally toxic. They are also toxic to human bodies.
And as others have stated, are associated with a time long in the past when society did not have more efficient, healthy and appropriate ways to clean the toilet (not to mention degrading toilet seals....if it breaks down the toilet, what is it doing to your body and the environment?)
“Oh well”, if the last four years have shown us anything, stupidity is clearly present in some individuals.

I use a toilet squeegee, and keep in in a utensil crock next to the toilet that I bought for that purpose. It works great, doesn't get nasty like nylon brushes, doesn't splash all over - unless you are trying to, and doesn't hold water, so it dries quickly. I give the toilet a quick clean daily, and use Mrs Meyers or Method toilet bowl cleaner weekly.
No need for toxic blue discs.

There should be nothing about the toilet that brings to the user’s mind any thoughts about cleanliness or the lack thereof.* Blue toilet water is like keeping a vacuum prominently displayed in the living room.
*A bidet or bidet attachment is the only exception to this, because its usefulness outweighs the awkwardness of providing a guest with a water gun to shoot at their heinie.

I use those sticky gel things you chunk onto the inside of your bowl. They keep it clean longer in between actual cleanings with Lysol toilet bowl cleaner. Don't use Clorox toilet bowl cleaner because that cheap slop won't cling to the sides of the bowl.
We used to use the clear bleach pucks that dissolved in the tank until we realized they were eating away at the inside bits of the terlet.
