There are no words to describe a dirty toilet bowl. It is, perhaps, one of the house items anyone should pay the most attention to, when it comes to keeping it clean. Not to mention, that, due to its use, that is one spot where all germs and bacteria gather, if not kept clean, or properly cleaned.
Make sure you wipe the toilet seat daily with rubbing alcohol or any other disinfectant of your choice.
To clean the inside of the toiled bowl, that is a whole other deal.
The best way to clean the toilet bowl is to make a rub out of baking soda and vinegar. But you can just use baking soda for scrubbing, if the toilet bowl is not very dirty.
To make it smell good, just use your favorite essential oil to add it to the mix.
You can also use unrefined salt to scrub. Or borax if it looks really bad.
The best way to get results is, before using any cleaning method, make sure you get all the water out of the bowl and pour in a generous amount of boiled water. That will ensure that the hardened goo dissolves and that the toilet bowl is properly cleaned right from the start.
Here’s one way to mix your own toiled bowl cleaner:
- 1/4 cup liquid Castile soap
- 1 3/4 cup water
- 2 tablespoons baking soda
- 8-10 drops of essential oils to kill bacteria and freshen – you can use tea tree, lemon, lavender, orange or eucalyptus, or any other essential oil you please
