Yes, I admit the toilet is a task I least enjoy. It is best to set a routine to clean the toilet so I won’t be as unpleasant.
Routine is not only important because if you do not clean the toilet properly in every cycle then it will accumulate.
Now how do you clean toilets? Do you DIY your bathroom cleaner or do you have a favorite brand?
Regardless, clean the toilet at least weekly.
Materials needed to clean the toilet are the following:
– Bathroom (disinfectant) cleaner
– microfiber cloth or paper towels (only use wipes if you are at a time deadline)
– toilet bowl cleaner and toilet brush
Step 1: Get your bathroom cleaner and spray the toilet surfaces.
If you would like to DIY your bathroom cleaner here is what is recommended:
1 1/4 cup of water
1/4 cup of white vinegar
1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol (alternative is vodka!)
10-15 drops of your favorite essential oil
Combine all these in a spray bottle and that is it!
Step 2: Squirt the toilet with toilet bowl cleaner or you can always try the disposable toilet bowl cleaner.
Step 3: Let these cleaners sit on the toilet for at least 10 minutes (10 minutes is the recommendation to disinfect the surfaces properly).
Step 4: Wipe all parts of the toilet. ALWAYS begin from the top of the toilet to the base.
Step 5: Scrub the toilet bowl, flush, and rinse the brush in the toilet water (you can keep the brush held under the toilet seat and allow it to drip dry for a bit).
Where does the pumice stone come into play?
A pumice stone is a life-saver! It will remove any toilet bowl rings. Toilet bowl rings are caused by hard water and mineral deposits. Due to this, not even bleach can remove these stains. A pumice stone will remove surface stains without scratching. Do take caution when using a pumice stone.
You see! Cleaning a toilet does not require expensive products or too many tools. Simply have a disinfectant cleaner, toilet bowl cleaner, and a pumice stone. You will see how easier it gets to maintain your bathrooms!
