Each surface in your home has particular cleaning needs. Depending on the type of material the surface is made of and its uses, you will need to choose different cleaners and cleaning methods.
It seems that the bathroom is one of the rooms in your home that is most prone to messes. You might think that this area gets dirty easily, and it certainly isn't fun to clean. There are various cleansers, sprays, and natural cleaning methods out there that can help make cleaning the bathroom easier on you, and tools that allow you to get the job done quickly.
When you think of bathroom cleaning, one of the first things you might consider is cleaning the toilet. Toilets are synonymous with germs and unsightly stains, and most of us absolutely hate to clean it. However, it is important to clean it regularly to ensure a sparkling clean look and to reduce the spread of germs. Fortunately, getting the toilet clean and free of gross build-up isn't as difficult as you might expect.
To get a clean toilet, you have some different options. First, you can use a toilet bowl cleaner that is made especially for this job. You could also try a natural cleaning method to remove stains in the bowl. Most methods using natural ingredients that you have at home won't cause harsh fumes or hurt your skin like other cleaning products can Another possibility is to use an automatic bowl cleaner to keep things tidy and clean without you needing to scrub as often.
There are many kinds of toilet cleaners available, and many even feature angled spouts for easy spraying to get at hard to reach spots. Once you apply this cleaner, use a toilet brush to scrub away stains. Be sure to get under the rim of the toilet bowl, and if the instructions say to, you should let the cleanser sit for a few minutes so it can work more effectively.
To try a more natural way to clean, use vinegar and baking soda. Pour some white vinegar into the toilet bowl and let it sit for several minutes. Using the toilet brush, scrub with some baking soda until the bowl is clean, and then flush.
Automatic bowl cleaners can be handy when it comes to preventing buildup. These sanitize and clean with each flush, and can be a great way to keep this fixture looking great.
With just a little effort and a few minutes, you can keep the toilet clean without having to take up too much time.
