Cleaning a toilet is not a pleasant task, but it’s essential to keep your bathroom germ-free and reduce bad smells. 5-Minute Crafts prepared instructions that will help you get through this chore quickly and efficiently.
❗ Basically, you should clean your toilet every week. But if you, or a member of your family, has had the flu or diarrhea, scrub the toilet more often.
What you’ll need:
Step 1. Drain the water out of the toilet.
✅ Turn off the water at the base of the toilet.
✅ Then flush once so that all the water empties out of the bowl.
Step 2. Spray the toilet with the cleaner.
✅ Put on rubber gloves, take the all-purpose cleaner, and spray the whole toilet with it, starting from the top and working your way down to the bottom, including the tank, handle, lid, seat, and toilet base.
Step 3. Scrub the bowl.
Step 4. Let the cleaners sit.
Step 5. Wipe the toilet clean.
✅ Take some paper towels and wipe the all-purpose cleaner off the toilet’s exterior, starting at the top and moving down to the bottom. Pay close attention to the points of contact like lids and the handle and don’t forget to wipe away the toilet base as well.
✅ Make sure that every surface of your toilet is dry.
Step 6. Clean the hard-to-reach areas.
✅ Take the toothbrush and use it to clean hard-to-reach areas like hinges and the handle.
Step 7. Flush the toilet.
✅ Turn the toilet’s water back on, then flush the toilet to rinse the bowl.
Step 8. Deal with rust stains.
