Cleaning the toilet should happen at least once a week, and more frequently if someone is ill. It is important to clean toilets frequently, even if they are not used frequently, to avoid hard water stains building up in the bowl. Cleaning the toilet more often is easier, faster, and less unpleasant than waiting until it gets too dirty.
How To Properly Clean A Toilet
Clear the Space
Everything on the floor around the toilet’s base should be removed, as well as everything from the top of the tank.
Flush and Prep
Closing the toilet lid, flush the bowl. After gathering your cleaning supplies, put on rubber gloves.
Fill the toilet bowl with cleaner
Use a commercial bleach-containing toilet bowl cleaner to completely disinfect the bowl, starting from under the rim. Shut the cover. Before beginning to scrub, give the cleanser at least five minutes to start lifting stains.
Clean the Outside of the Toilet
Go ahead and clean the toilet’s exterior while the cleaner works within the bowl. Dust and dirt can be removed with a microfiber cloth and bathroom cleaning. Wipe down the exterior of the bowl, the flushing handle or button, the edges of the tank, and the tank lid starting at the top. Remember the space between the tank and the seat. Remember the space between the tank and the seat. Lastly, wipe down the toilet seat’s lid and both sides. Take the seat off and give it a thorough cleaning on its own.
Clean the toilet bowl
Starting at the top under the rim, thoroughly clean the bowl with a long-handled bristled brush. Scrubbing this area will not only remove soil but will help keep the water jets free from mineral deposits that can cause jams. Scrub the whole surface of the bowl including the curve or trap. To rinse, flush.
Clean the restroom
It’s time to sanitize the toilet’s exterior surfaces now that everything is clean. Disinfecting wipes or a disinfectant spray are options. Using an adequate amount of product and giving it enough time to do its job is essential for successful disinfection. Examine the labels. For a minimum of five to ten minutes, the majority of disinfectants advise keeping the surface damp. Observe the handle and seat locations with great care.
How to Remove Stains from Toilets
Hard water minerals, rusty plumbing parts, and occasional cleaning can create difficult-to-remove stains in the toilet bowl that need a little more time spent scrubbing than usual.
Drain the Toilet Bowl
In order to prevent water from refilling the tank and bowl, flush the toilet and shut off the water flow valve while the water is still out of the bowl. The water level in the bowl should be as low as feasible.
Remove Hard Water Rings
Put on long rubber gloves and use a long-handled pumice stone (available for purchase) to scrub away the hard water minerals that cause the rings to form in the bowl. Never use the stone dry; it will harm the bowl’s surface. Instead, it must be damp. After rubbing the stone over the deposits, turn on the water again to remove the waste.
Take Out the Rust Streaks
To remove as much water as possible from the bowl, flush and switch off the water once again. After adding two cups of pure white vinegar, use a toilet brush to scrub the stains. Use extra vinegar and let the bowl sit for at least two hours (overnight is best) before scrubbing to remove any stubborn stains; after that, turn the water back on and flush.
