Offensive Toilet Odor

If your toilet is giving off offensive odors, despite your best efforts at cleaning, it could be that there is a broken sewage pipe below the toilet.  So then the problem is below the toilet and no amount of cleaning of the toilet bowl itself will matter.

Check the base of the toilet and see if there is any leaking, which can be another cause of odor; in particular this can develop over time.

The 3rd possibility is that the wax ring, which is a seal between the waste pipe and toilet, could be bad.  Again, this can happen gradually.

Call your local licensed plumber if the odors persist.
