To really get your loo clean, use your toilet brush/swab to remove all the water from the bowl. This way your cleanser will come in direct contact with the surface and not get watered down.
To do this, simply take the toilet brush and insert it into the large drain hole at the bottom of the loo. Very quickly pump it up and down while aiming back toward the "throat" of the loo. The motion is similar to that of plunging. Pretty soon your bowl will be empty and ready for a super duper cleaning!
Dump a pail of water in the toilet and the water will go down and stay down until you flush. Do this when you go away to avoid the ring around the bowl.
There is an easier way to empty your bowl for cleaning. Take the lid off the tank. Take a wire hanger and put the float thru it. With the hangerresting on the tank, holding up the float, you can flush the toilet and it will drain but not refill until you remove the hanger and let the float frop.
If your loo is one without a float I wouldn't know what to tell you for emptying your tank and bowl.
Just turn the shut off valve next to the toilet off and flush. No water in toilet bowl and then you can clean. Turn it back on and the bowl fills back up and flush. How simple and fast was that?
Hey there. I tried the pail of water trick and it did not work too well in my loo. Just lowered the water a bit, didn't empty it. Using the brush is easy peasy for me and I already have it right there ready to go. Thank you!
