How to Clean a Toilet

Cleaning a toilet is not the most glamorous task in the world; nor do any of us look forward to it, nonetheless, it has to be done.

One home method in cleaning a toilet is to use vinegar.

It not only gets rid of mold, but it keeps the toilet smelling fresh as well. In addition, you don’t have to worry about using harsh chemicals containing toxins that may be dangerous to you, your family, or your pets.

All it takes is one part vinegar to one part water.  Clean around the circumfrance of the toilet and the cover and seat, too.

   To clean the inside of the toilet, first flush the toilet and then add the same solution of vinegar and water. Pour it into the toilet. Using a brush, clean the inside of the toilet and then flush again.

Or, if you prefer, just pour the vinegar into the bowl (after the first flush) and clean.

You’ll need rubber gloves, paper towels, and a mask (if the bathroom has no ventilation).  If it does, turn on the air vent just in case you or anyone in your family is allergic to vinegar.

It is also recommended that you change seat covers once a year. The reason for this is that if there is a crack in the seat or the cover for that matter, it is a perfect venue for mold to form.

If you clean the toilet frequently, it can be easily maintained each month with a simply wipe down.
