American Standard’s ActiClean toilet takes your least liked chore and makes it a breeze because it can clean itself – with the press of a button.

A removable slow close toilet seat makes seat and bowl top cleaning easy.  And, the cleaning components are hidden from view, yet easy to access for battery and cleaning cartridge changes.

Price: Starts at only $350

Availability: ActiClean toilets are sold at showrooms and retailers nationwide, plus are available online.
