- Step 2: Tackle Toilet Stains with Bleach
There’s nothing quite like bleach to tackle those horrible waste stains in your toilet bowl. Bleach cleaners like Domex are very effective at lifting off stubborn stains – simply apply the bleach to the stained areas, leave for 30 minutes, then flush the toilet to rinse. Don’t forget that bleach is very powerful – and very smelly – so always wear gloves to protect your hands, follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and keep your bathroom well ventilated.
- Step 3: Give a Natural Boost
Bleach cleaners can work well on troublesome limescale stains, but these types of stain also respond very well to acid-based cleaners. One of the best acids to use is vinegar. Why? Because you’ve probably already got it in your kitchen cupboards. There’s no need to dilute the vinegar – just pour it onto the stain, leave to soak, and then flush to rinse. For very stubborn limescale marks, use the toilet brush to scour and scrub the inside of the bowl.
Understanding how to clean toilet bowl stains is easy, but remember – there’s no point in making cleaning any more difficult than it needs to be. If you’re using a bleach product without a spout, for example, consider changing to a spouted bottle that can easily reach underneath the toilet rim and get into all those hard-to-reach places. Why do more work than you really need to? Surely it’s better to spend less time cleaning, and more time relaxing.
