I am not finding much about using denture cleaning tablets online, other than that "green" groups like them. They say to drop two in at night. But even if they should clean and disinfect, the area above the water line and under the rim aren't cleaned or disinfected. And brushing would put the water and tablet solution onto those areas, but if the tablets need to stay in the water overnight to clean and disinfect, then a swish isn't going to do it. What I see is using a half cup of bleach in the toilet, swish around, let sit for 10 minutes and flush. Then the bowl is cleaned and disinfected.
So my conclusion is that a couple denture tablets won't do it- too much water for the tablets to disinfect, but that I'll continue dropping a couple in at night just to keep the toilet smelling fresh between cleanings.
