Keeping our toilet clean is essential because dirty toilets do not only look nasty and smell disgusting, they can also be a breeding ground of an ecosystem of germs and bacteria. Just imagine how disappointing taking your shower in a bathroom with a dirty toilet! Who would enjoy in that? Nobody, right? So follow these easy and professional steps on how you can ensure a clean toilet.
Make sure you are wearing utility (rubber) gloves whose color is different from the ones you use with household cleaning. This should only be exclusively used for toilet cleaning. Before you start, remove all items placed around and on the top of your items.
Most people like decorating their toilet top with figurines, decorative linens and the like. These must be removed so that we can prevent accidental drops and contaminating these with the chemicals of the cleaning products you will use later.
Proceed by wiping down the toilet with a damp sponge (or rag). Use hot water to moisten the rag and wipe the tank, the lid, base, exterior and the seat of the bowl. This will help loosen dirt and will help scatter the cleaning product.
Squirt toilet cleaner inside the bowl. There are a wide variety of cleaners available. You may want to choose a product that contains low concentration of caustic chemicals. These are natural cleaning products and they are very effective cleaners.
Moving on, start squirting the cleaner at the rim and moving towards the inner surface of the bowl. Make sure to let them soak for they will work better this way. Be sure to follow manufacturer’s directions on the label for safety.
Scrub the bowl hard with the use of a toilet brush. Depending on the graveness of the dirt, repeat brushing until completely clean. Brush around the entire bowl thoroughly. Mineral stains are the number one enemy of toilet bowls and usually accumulate at the back of the bowl and along the water level.
So make sure you pay special attention to these stains. Flush the toilet for easy rinsing. You may want to continue scrubbing while the water drains from the toilet. Repeat a number of times to ensure that you rinse the toilet thoroughly.
Buy Lysol or any bathroom cleaner disinfectant and spray all over the outside of the toilet including the seat, the toilet top and the trunk. Use paper towels to wipe away the cleaner. Do not use the same brush you used in cleaning the interior of the toilet bowl as this will definitely spread the germs on the seat or on to the exterior of the bowl.
Also, do not forget to clean the handle thoroughly. Spray the handle with the same disinfectant. Remember that the handle can be the source of transmission of germs, so really clean it well.
Include cleaning the tiles and floor surrounding the toiled by using your cleaner and a new brush (separate from the one you used in cleaning the toilet!). After which, spray them with a disinfectant spray. Wipe them clean using a rag or paper towels.
You are now ready to re-place the items that were around the toilet. Rinse them first and wipe them dry with a rag or a paper towel before putting them back. Store cleaning materials you used in cleaning the toilet properly especially cleaning products. Keep them out of reach from children.
