What is good for cleaning toilets and keeping them clean longer than a day?
By Terri from Baton Rouge, LA
If they get dirty in just one day, it's probably an issue with the type of water in your area. We've got really hard water, and even our toilets don't get dirty again that fast.
Soft water might be the way to go, to eliminate this problem for good. Because there's no household cleaner that can keep anything clean for a longer period of time. Something besides common household usage is making your toilets get dirty. If you're having to clean them every day, and there's nothing staining them (like a brick in the tank, etc.), then the water is your culprit.
For cleaning the inside, put straight bleach in to a well marked squirt bottle & CAREFULLY squirt the bleach all around the inside of the toilet, then shut the toilet lid & wait for half an hour. Afterward, flush toilet & air out the bathroom. Like any strong cleaning products or using bleach in the wash, this is not good for a septic tank if done often, but once a week is usually okay. I hate cleaning my toilet, but doing this once a week kills the germs & keeps my toilet clean inside. Be careful, don't wear your best jeans or dark clothes when using bleach!
I so wish people would stop using bleach to clean :-( It's harmful for lungs of humans and pets and harmful for the environment as a whole including septic systems and city sewer water systems) :-( Even hospitals are beginning to steer away from the use of bleach for disinfecting!
All you need to do is get a toilet brush that has attached but separate additional hard bristles that face upwards (I found mine at Wal-Mart about three years ago). Those extra bristles clean off the mold from under the toilet bowel seat area. If you use the brush just once every day and then just pour some distilled vinegar once a week and let it stand in the toilet bowl for a few minutes to disinfect you'll be good to go (no pun intended) :-)
You have to catch the boys that are not aiming right.
It's a fact that bleach only covers the issue when it starts getting the black in the bowl make sure you use a pumice stone to get clean along with your toilet cleaner you get a break for a bit. Except for those misses lol
