How to clean inside of the toilet


Apply toilet cleaner to the bowl and let it soak in. Once it soaked in, spread the cleaner into the bowl with a brush.


How to clean outside of the toilet


Spray the outside of the toilet with an all-purpose cleaner. Then use a sponge to clean the outside of the toilet. Also, pay attention to the base and the floor around the toilet. If you have a modern toilet with a quick detachable toilet seat, take the seat off and clean it separately.

Once the outside is clean, use a toilet brush to clean the basin. If you have rings or stains from hard water, use a pumice stone to remove them.

Accessories for toilet cleaning


Keep these utensils in a container or bucket to separate them from the rest of the detergents. It is not a good idea to use the toilet sponge to clean the sink or to wash the dishes with the same rubber gloves.


Waterproof rubber gloves

Scrub sponge

Toilet cleaner or vinegar

Toilet brush

All-purpose disinfectant spray

Cloth

Pumice stone

Cleaning the toilet water tank


Take the lid off and take a look inside. If you see limescale or mud, pour four cups of vinegar into the tank. Leave this on for up to an hour. Then turn off the tap on your toilet and flush the toilet. This will empty the tank. Use a sponge or toilet brush to scrub the walls of the tank while the tank is empty. Turn the water back on, refill the tank, and flush the toilet several times to flush the tank out.
