Revamp Your Spring Cleaning Routine with a DIY Natural Toilet Cleaner
When was the last time you gave the inside of your toilet a thorough clean? If you’re like me, it’s not a task that often comes to mind. However, taking a closer look at the depths of your toilet tank reveals a breeding ground for hard water stains, mold, mildew, and bacteria. Yuck! It’s time to step up your toilet cleaning game and ensure a cleaner bowl between uses.
To begin, let’s focus on the water tank. Start by pouring 1 cup of vinegar into the tank and let it sit while you tackle the rest of the cleaning. However, be cautious not to leave the vinegar in the tank for too long, as it can erode the metal components. Once you’ve completed the other cleaning tasks, flush the toilet 2-3 times to thoroughly rinse out the tank.

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.
