A clean, sanitised and fresh smelling toilet is a sign of healthy living space. The primary objective of keeping your toilet clean is to eliminate germs. Try these cleaning tips and tricks to make this task easier. We’re here with some time-saving tips to help you out.
1) To Clean the Toilet Bowl
Before you begin, we suggest you wear rubber gloves. To clean stains on your toilet bowl, make a paste by mixing 2 cups of baking soda and 2 cups of water. Mix well and liberally apply it on your toilet bowl. You can use your bristled toilet brush to apply the paste. Let the paste sit for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, mix 1 cup of vinegar in 2 cups of water and pour the solution in a spray bottle. Spray it over the paste and wait for 10 minutes. Thoroughly scrub the bowl with your toilet brush and rinse. Your toilet bowl will look bright and clean.
2) To Clean Fungal Growth
Sometimes, you will notice fungal growth in and around the corners of your toilet bowl. To clean it, make a paste by mixing 2 tbsp. of lemon juice and 1 cup of baking soda. With a bristled toilet brush, evenly apply the paste on the affected areas and wait for 20 minutes. Next, mix 1 cup of vinegar in 2 cups of water and pour the solution in a spray bottle. Spray it over the affected areas and wipe clean with a rag. Rinse with plain water.
3) To Unclog Drains
If you see your toilet drain getting clogged, simply mix baking soda and salt, 1 cup each, in a bowl. Pour it in your toilet bowl and wait for 20-25 minutes. Then, pour ½ a bucket of hot water down the drain.
4) To Absorb Odours
To absorb foul odour in your toilet, simply fill a container or a vase with 2 cups of baking soda and place it on your toilet counter. To make your own toilet freshener, make a solution by combining 2 slices of lemon, 2-3 rosemary leaves, ½ a tsp. peppermint essential oil in a bowl of water. Mix well and pour in a spray bottle. Spray as needed.
