Step 1. Safety First!

Always put on the appropriate personal protective equipment first before you start cleaning the toilet such as waterproof rubber gloves, goggles if you are using sprays of any kind and apron to avoid germs and bacteria.

Step 2. Apply Toilet Cleaner

Before applying a toilet cleaner, flush the toilet first to moisten the bowl. Then grab your toilet cleaner and don’t forget to read the manufacturer’s instructions before using it. After, spray some on the inside of the rim and let it drop down to the sides of the bowl. Make sure there’s a lot of it under the rim. Allow for a few minutes for it to absorb.

Step 3. Use Damp Sponge to Wipe the External Surfaces of the Bowl

While waiting for the toilet cleaner to absorb, wipe all external surfaces with a damp sponge. Everything should be wiped clean, including the tank, lid, toilet seat, base, and exterior of the bowl.

Step 4. Scrub the Inside of the Bowl

Use your toilet brush to clean the bowl. Scrub it thoroughly with the use of water from the sides to the bottom of the bowl. To work up the bubbles from your toilet cleaner, dip your brush into the water and make sure you’re working your muscles. After cleaning the bowl, it is essential to always close the lid when flushing to avoid any splatter from the chemically loaded water.

If there are still stains, you can use a pumice stone to remove any remaining stains from the bowl. A damp pumice stone is rough enough to remove mineral deposits stains while being soft enough not to damage surfaces.

Step 5. Disinfect the Exterior with a Disinfectant Spray

When the stain is removed,use a hot damp sponge to wipe the surface and you can now start disinfecting the exterior part of the toilet using the disinfectant spray with your paper towel or rag. Make certain that every surface is well-cleaned.
