DIY Natural Toilet Cleaner + 6 Bathroom Toilet Cleaning Tips


You use your trusty toilet brush to clean the bowl, and that deserves applause. But have you ever considered cleaning the brush itself? Well, it's a common oversight. While your bowl may appear sparkling clean, you're inadvertently spreading germs from previous cleanings, including those from your friend, Mr. Toilet Brush. Not the most pleasant thought, right? To address this issue, I recommend soaking the entire brush in vinegar overnight to start with. For a more thorough clean, consider soaking it in bleach as well. And if it's been a while since you last changed your brush (once or twice a year is ideal), it might be time to do so.

Now, let's move on to cleaning the entire toilet, beyond just the bowl and seat. Picture this: when you flush the toilet, particles of bacteria, water, and other unpleasant substances can be found floating around your bathroom. Therefore, it's crucial to clean every surface of the toilet, from the bowl to the base, to maintain a truly sanitized environment.

Speaking of surfaces, have you ever thought about how many times your hands touch the toilet paper holder? It's quite unsettling, isn't it? Make it a point to disinfect the entire toilet paper holder regularly, and why not take the opportunity to replace the roll while you're at it?

Maybe it's due to my background as a pediatric nurse, but I'm rather obsessed with cleanliness, especially when it comes to handles and knobs. The toilet handle, in particular, is one of the most frequently touched areas in your bathroom. Even if you think you've thoroughly cleaned the entire toilet flusher handle area, it's worth giving it another quick clean before you leave. Trust me, it's for the best—because, well, it's pretty gross.

I hope you take these six tips to heart and truly achieve a thoroughly clean toilet in your bathroom. For more insightful tips, including a recipe for DIY Natural Toilet Cleaner, be sure to visit my blog, Raising Whasians, for all the details!
