Top Tips for Cleaning Toilets
If you are like me in the fact that I just don’t like cleaning toilets, I’ve got a bit of good news. That is if there is any thing good about cleaning toilets.
What is the #1 issue when it comes to cleaning your toilet? Actually the top 2 issues would be a better statement. For me, it’s the dreaded water stains and ring around the bowl.
You may be asking why not 10 or 12 tips. Because you only need 2 tips that work to take care of the rings and stains. There’s no need to go overboard here. It’s just a toilet.
The Process to Cleaning your Toilet
Clean your toilet as you normally would. Squirt some bowl cleaner around inside the toilet bowl, get your brush and scrub it well. No this is not one of the tips but you need to clean it first so you can see the tougher stains and ring.
1. The Bowl Cleaning Chemical – Simple thing here. Start with a toilet bowl cleaner that has some grit. I’m not talking about “True Grit” from a John Wayne movie here. Using a grit toilet bowl cleaner will help to scour out the stains. Many times this will remove the stain so no further cleaning is required. However, if this does not completely remove the stains and ring, move onto step two.
2. Using the Stick – If the stain is still visible, you will need a
pumice stick or stone. This is a porous material specifically for cleaning tough toilet rings and stains. All you do is rub it across the stains as though you are erasing with a pencil. Depending on how bad the stain is, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to completely remove any trace of the toilet bowl ring.
I suggest after you use the pumice stick, take your toilet bowl brush and wash away any material that became dislodged. Now flush.
These two simple tips for cleaning toilets are all you need to get your bowl looking like new.
