The Do’s and Don’ts of Cleaning Your Toilet
Posted on September 5th, 2018
Question: when was the last time you cleaned your toilet? Sure, you might do it every week when you scrub your bathroom — but some “throne” owners don’t clean it that often. Although cleaning your toilet might seem like a daunting task, it’s actually quite simple. If you’re not sure what to do and not to do when cleaning your “throne,” then here are some tips:
Do: Clean Your Toilet Weekly
Believe it or not, the most used “furnishing” in your home should be cleaned weekly, if not, more than once a week. The reason being is this: your toilet gets dingey quite fast — especially if guests frequent your home.
When you clean your toilet on a weekly basis, it will prevent any foul smells or any “rings” from building up on the inside of the bowl.
Don’t: Neglect Your Toilet
As mentioned earlier, some homeowners will neglect cleaning their toilet. If you happen to “abandon” your toilet’s hygiene, then it will lead to some more significant problems down the road — such as the buildup of harmful bacteria.
Additionally, your toilet may even have the potential to foster mold growth in some areas, if it’s neglected for too long.
Do: Scrub the Toilet
Fact: we’re all tempted, from time to time, to pour some cleaning detergent in the toilet and let it sit there. Due to popular belief, some “throne” owners think that this will clean and disinfect their toilet — but it’s not doing much.
The solution? You’ll want to pour a cleaning solution in your bowl, and then scrub it all around with a toilet brush. This will not only sanitize your toilet, but it will prevent buildup.
Don’t: Use a Bule Toilet Tank Tablet
You know that tablet that turns your toilet water blue? Although it may claim to clean your “throne” — it’s corroding it.
Believe it or not, these chemical tablets are harmful to your tank and can break down any essential parts, such as the handle. Additionally, if the tablet corrodes the pieces, then you’ll need to replace them on a frequent basis.
