My boyfriends house is a complete mess?
What is the best cleaning solution that is also cheap that does the job? I need something that will clean really well. His house is by far the nastiest house ever.

A product called The Works is great for toilets, you can get it at the dollar store or walmart. Be sure to wear gloves and have a window open because it's strong.

Get out! While you can. If he can't be bothered to swipe the toilet once and a while, he probably doesn't "swipe" parts of his body either. Disgusting! I can't believe anyone "normal " would even consider staying with such a pig!
