Ways To Keep Your Toilets Sparkling
Cleaning a toilet is a task that often gets postponed, but it's essential to keep toilets clean. A dirty toilet will look bad, smell bad and breed germs. However, as with many of life's less pleasant tasks, cleaning your toilet now can save you headaches later. With these instructions and help of products from Home Wellness, you'll get through this task quickly and efficiently.
Grab rubber gloves, which are essential, plus as many of the following things as you can find: a toilet brush, toilet cleaner, an all purpose cleaner or disinfectant spray , an old, out-of-use toothbrush, clean rags (or paper towels),tile scrubbing brush(Venus Pro Tile Scrubber).
1). Wipe down the toilet with a damp sponge. It can be handy to give your toilet an initial once-over with hot water. While you're cleaning the rest of the toilet, this will sink in, loosening up dirt and grime and making your later efforts easier. Moisten a sponge with hot water and wipe around the tank, lid, seat, base, and exterior of the bowl. Often, this will be enough to completely remove dirt without the need for special cleaning products.
2). Cleaning the toilet bowl- Its smartest to start with the bowl. This way, if you splash any dirty water out of the bowl while you're cleaning it, it won't get parts of the toilet that you've already cleaned dirty.First splash half a bucket full of water with force in one go to. This gets the water inside the toilet bowl.This exposes dry the stains at the water line on a toilet.
a).Apply toilet cleaner to the inside of the bowl. Specially-formulated toilet cleaners like WONDER FRESH DISINFECTANT TOILET CLEANER can help you eliminate stains, rings, and mineral deposits in your toilet. Squirt or dab cleaner on the inside of the rim of the bowl, allowing it to drip down the sides of the bowl and into the water. It's important to apply cleaner to the inside of the bowl's rim - this area is often ignored, which can lead to gross brown mineral buildup along the rim.
b).Scrub the bowl with a toilet brush. Using a firm-bristled MEGA WESTERN ROUND TOILET BRUSH WITH HOLDER OR MEGA CLASSIC DOUBLE SIDED TOILET BRUSH WITH HOLDER scrub the entire bowl thoroughly, paying special attention to any mineral stains that may accumulate along the water level and at the back of the bowl. The more thoroughly (and firmly) you scrub the bowl, the cleaner it will get. You may need to apply some pressure to eliminate caked-on stains. Make the most of your toilet cleaner - since it's accumulated in the water at the bottom of the bowl, dip your brush in it a few times to work up some suds, which will give your scrubbing extra cleaning power.
Always use a toilet brush with a container or a holder as after using the brush, the water dripping from the brush if allowed to fall on the toilet floor, may lead to the spread of germs all around the washroom.One of the most common sources of nastiness and smells in your bathroom is your toilet brush,but it goes unnoticed. Ensure regular cleaning of the toilet brush too.The best way to deal with this is to pour some sort of all purpose cleaner (You can also make your own cleaning solution by adding 1 tbsp WONDER FRESH DISH WASH LIQUID soap to 6 oz of water) at the bottom of the holder.Just make sure to top it off every now and then to keep your brush nice and sparkly clean.Keep separate toilet brushes for each toilet.Waling the same toilet brush around the house can again be reason for spreading the germs and infection around the entire house
3).Flush the toilet. Flushing rinses the bowl and the brush. Continue to scrub as the water drains from the toilet, as the motion of the water may not be enough to rinse all of the dirt away.
Now that you've cleaned the bowl, it's time to :-
4).Clean the lids and Clean the rest of the toilet with a disinfectant cleaner. After you've cleaned the bowl, you should clean the rest of the toilet, especially the main points of contact, the top and bottom lids. Use all-purpose cleaner(You can also make your own cleaning solution by adding 1 tbsp WONDER FRESH DISH WASH LIQUID soap to 6 oz of water) to mist the entire toilet. Make sure to get both the top and bottom of the seat and the entire exterior of the bowl, including its base. Use light pressure with a cloth or paper towel to work in and wipe away the cleaner. Use rags/paper towels (or disposable sanitary wipes) to give both the lids a quick but thorough cleaning on both sides. If you want to, use an old toothbrush to scrub the hard-to-reach spots between the lid and the body of the toilet as well as the hinges .When you're done, not only will your toilet have a beautiful, even sheen - it'll also be free of harmful bacteria
5). Use a spray bottle of "all-purpose" or "bathroom" disinfectant cleaner (You can also make your own cleaning solution by adding 1 tbsp WONDER FRESH DISH WASH LIQUID soap to 6 oz of water) to Clean the handle thoroughly. The handle needs to be extra-clean because you touch it every time you use the toilet. If it's a breeding place for bacteria, that bacteria will be on your fingers after you flush! Be sure to give the handle a generous coat of disinfectant spray. You're more likely to give yourself germs from the handle than you are from any other part of the toilet, so clean it well.
6).Spray the floor around the toilet with the disinfectant spray (You can also make your own cleaning solution by adding 1 tbsp WONDER FRESH DISH WASH LIQUID soap to 6 oz of water). Often, if your toilet's dirty, the floor around it is too. You don't want to get your feet dirty every time you use the toilet, so take the opportunity to clean the surrounding section of floor. Don't forget to clean hard-to-see areas like the base of the toilet with VENUS PRO TILE SCRUBBER Use a brush or broom to sweep up any loose hair or debris around, and especially behind, the body of the toilet. Wipe the back of the tank, which faces the wall clean with wet paper towels, disposable wipes, or a cloth.
