How to clean a dirty toilet and make it sparkle

  1. 1. How To Clean A Dirty Toilet And Make It Sparkle
  2. 2. What You’re Going To Need.  Rubber Gloves.  A cloth or sponge (not the kitchen sponge).  A toilet brush.  Antibacterial cleaner.
  3. 3. Step 1: The Gentle Rinse.  Give the exterior (the tank, lid and seat) a good wipe-down with hot water.  This will remove excess dirt and make the cleaning process easier.
  4. 4. Step 2: Clean The Bowl.  Squirt the cleaner around the rim and let it drip down (This will help soften anything that’s managed to harden within the bowl).  Leave the cleaner to settle for a minute and then scrub with a toilet brush.  Pay close attention to the water level (where minerals are prone to settle) and delve deep into the bowl.
  5. 5. Step 3: Clean The Outside.  Close the lid and, with your cleaner, get to work on the toilet’s exterior.  Rinse often and wipe in circular motions to avoid streaks.  Don’t forget: Spray top-down, this is the most hygienic way as it will prevent any unwanted drips onto clean areas.
  6. 6. Step 4: Clean The Toilet Seat.  Spray your cleaner around the lid and hinges and give it a good scrub.  Don’t forget the reverse of your toilet seat  This can be a haven for stains, particularly when living with people who have bad aim!
  7. 7. Step 5: Back To The Bowl.  The cleaning fluid you applied in step 2 will have now settled, so take another look for persistent stains.  If you notice any, grab your toilet brush and give it another scrub.  Now you can flush. If you notice another stain, just repeat this step.
  8. 8. Step 6: Clean The Handle.  Don’t be the person who cleans the toilet, but forgets the handle – No one likes that guy!  With some disinfectant, give the handle a good spray and wipe clean.
  9. 9. Step 7: Clean Your Toilet Brush  This is a simple process: Pour some bleach into a bucket and immerse your brush, ensuring you reach every bristle.  Before placing the brush back, give the container a clean with soapy water.
  10. 10. Useful Tips.  Use a small mirror to spot any hard-to-see stains under the rim.  Before your start cleaning, ensure your bathroom is well ventilated.
  11. 11. The Best Natural Toilet Cleaners. 1. White vinegar: The acidity in vinegar will dissolve any mineral deposits which will prove particularly effective for removing limescale. 2. Coca-Cola: Simply pour it around the bowl’s rim and leave it for a minimum of 1 hour.  Coke has a high acidity level so it will cut through stains with ease and leave your toilet sparkling.
