Toilet Cleaning Tips

On today’s cleaning tips we will share some information on how to keep your toilet bowl grime free. There is no doubt that the toilet bowl can be the ugliest and most embarrassing picture in your house, specially when you have visitors. In this issue we will unveil the reason of dirt accumulation on the bowl, and easy prevention thereof. Water and moist tend to enhance the existence of moulds, algae and even stony minerals, that once accumulated can even damage at the act of scrubbing it. If your cleanings occur regularly, then it should not be difficult to remove by just scrubbing the bowl with the toilet brush. However if the sediments have resided for so long that now are so stubborn to the toilet brush, then we advise materials that are tough on the cleaning surface, but not harmful when exposed to humans. Choosing natural materials will also help you posses your bowl for longer period.  Here are some tips on how to clean your toilet bowl with risk free natural materials.

You will be needing a bottle of white vinegar and a toilet bowl plunger.

  1. Since you will need to pour the white vinegar on the bowl, remove any previously used chlorine or any other kind of deodorizing automatic cleaners. Flush the toilet real good and make sure there are no remains on the chlorine thereupon, for it will produce chlorine gas.
  2. The next step is emptying the bowl, in which it is required to use the toilet plunger to be put over the hole of the bottom of the toilet bowl. In doing so you will gently push the plunger towards the water, which will cause the water to slowly empty the bowl. Release and do so again as many times as needed to empty the bowl.
  3. Then apply enough amount of the white vinegar on the bowl, filling it to the normal level. If you are measuring the vinegar in gallons (which would be better) then half a gallon or a gallon will be sufficient. After applying the vinegar you might leave the toilet bowl overnight, this will allow the vinegar to completely loosen the sediments attachment to your bowl.
  4. After the process above, the sediments will be softened and loosened form the toilet bowl, which will ease scrubbing by just a toilet brush. Depending on the age of the toilet bowl and the corrosiveness of the materials you have previously used, your bowl might be severely roughened enough to hold sediments very hard to remove. In such cases you might need to apply more gallons of white vinegar and give it plenty of time to process.
  5. And last but not least flush your bowl real good, enough to dissipate any trace of vinegar odor.

Vinegar will not only help you heal your severely grime marked toilet bowl, but it will also dissipate any unpleasant odour from the surrounding. The best way to prevent your toilet bowl from any corrosions of any kind is to keep it clean and flush it constantly.
