Need some advice on the best and safest way to clear my toilet from chlorine gas smell. I think it must be stuck in the trap.

Are you on public water or well water? – Jack May 26 '14 at 0:12
Is there a chlorine-dispensing device in the toilet tank? That would seem to be the most likely cause of a persistent chlorine smell in a toilet - "2000 Flushes" or something like that. I had a housemate who loved those things. I was not overly fond of what it did to all the rubber parts over time. – Ecnerwal May 26 '14 at 0:40
