Way № 1

Before doing this, make sure the pipes can handle such pressure.

1️⃣ If your toilet is clogged, put some food film onto it as the photo shows.

2️⃣ Make sure there are no cracks so that the air doesn’t come through the film.

3️⃣ Flush the water to make the film go up.

4️⃣ Push the film with your hands. If the clog doesn’t go away, do it again.

Way № 2

1️⃣ To get rid of unpleasant smells from the toilet, prepare these ingredients:

✅ 2 glasses of baking soda
✅ 1/3 glass of lemon acid
✅ 2 tbsp of 3% hydrogen peroxide
✅ 15 drops of lemon essential oil
✅ 5 drops of peppermint essential oil

2️⃣ You can omit the essential oils if you’d like.

3️⃣ Mix all the ingredients.

4️⃣ Put the mix into an ice tray and dry it. Put it into the toilet after each time you use it.

Way № 3

1️⃣ Use toothpaste. Make 2 small cuts on the sides of the toothpaste tube.

2️⃣ Put the toothpaste into the tank. Fix the paste so that it doesn’t get into the mechanism.

3️⃣ Put the tank back and use it as usual.

Way № 4

1️⃣ If there are some old stains on the toilet, you can remove them with pumice. Put on gloves and wet the pumice — it has to be wet to work.

2️⃣ Carefully rub it on the stains.

3️⃣ Be careful in order not to scratch the surface.

4️⃣ When all the stains are removed, flush the water.

Way № 5

1️⃣ To clean the toilet’s surface, get some soda.

2️⃣ Pour it into the toilet so that it gets on the walls.

3️⃣ Leave it there overnight and wash it off in the morning.

Way № 6

1️⃣ First, place toothpaste all over where you wish to clean.

2️⃣ Then, with the help of a scrubbing brush, spread it evenly all around.

3️⃣ Now let the brushed toothpaste sit for a while.

4️⃣ Lastly, wash everything off with water.

Bonus: how to use less water when flushing

Pour some water into an empty plastic bottle and put it into the toilet tank. This simple trick will help you reduce the amount of water in the tank and the amount of water you use.
