Home Hacks – How to Have a Gleaming Clean Toilet

modern toilet - how to clean the toilt

A clean toilet is the cornerstone of a clean house. Given how often we visit this room, and it’s purpose, it is one room that needs regular attention. This is a valuable life skill that a lot of people don’t learn to do. Or at least none of my flatmates over the years. 

Steps to a sparkling clean toilet

  1. Put on disposable gloves (for hygiene) 
  2. Dust all horizontal surfaces: cistern, lid, area behind the lids with a dry cloth. Put this cloth in the washing.
  3. Spray all surfaces (cistern, lip, under lid, seat, under seat and outside of bowl
  4. Apply a toilet duck cleaner under where the water comes out around bowl (just get the cheapest one at the supermarket – otherwise, you are flushing your money down the drain – bad pun I know)
  5. Leave for 15 minutes for a super clean toilet
  6. With a wet clean cloth and a bucket of warm water, wipe each external area, rinsing cloth between areas, until everything except the bowel is clean
  7. With you toilet brush scrub inside the bowl
  8. Flush toilet and rinse loo brush with the water
  9. Tap the brush over the bowl to dry and replace in its stand
  10. Mop floor.

Other steps to ensure your loo is tip top:

Make Sure toilet paper is plentiful

Nothing worse than running out of loo roll. 

Ensure there is plenty of toilet paper. Our family recently discovered “Who Gives A Crap” – which is a company who donates 50% of profits to provide toilets and sanitation across the world. 

“2.4 billion people across the world don’t have access to a toilet. That’s roughly 40% of the global population and means that diarrhoea related diseases fill over half of sub-Saharan African hospital beds and kill 900 children under 5 every day.”
