Clean the toilet with home remedies instead of expensive toilet cleaners
Although more and more manufacturers of toilet cleaners are promising that their products can work wonders and make the toilet spotless with little effort, this is not always the case. Often these cleaning agents are also quite expensive. We bring you the best life hacks that will make scrubbing those hard-to-reach places easier and save you money.
You can really simplify the annoying cleaning of the toilet with a few tips and tricks and thus save valuable time.
1. Denture cleaning tabs remove limescale
Use a denture cleanser tablet and simply throw it in the toilet bowl. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes and then rinse off.
2. Baking soda or baking soda for sparkling toilets
Baking powder or baking soda also give your toilet a glow and make the famous gray haze disappear. Sprinkle a little baking soda or baking soda on areas that have brown edges. Let the powder work for some time. Then rinse thoroughly.
By the way, baking powder helps not only in this case. In the video below we show you where baking powder has turned out to be a real insider tip!
3. Vinegar or vinegar essence against urine scale
Stubborn limescale and urine scale are a common occurrence in the toilet. Pour a small amount of neutral white vinegar or vinegar essence into the toilet. Leave on and then rinse.
4. Detergents dissolve toilet dirt
Powdered detergent for white laundry is a great way to brighten up the toilet. It is best to pour half a cup of detergent down the toilet in the evening. You simply leave it on overnight. So-called surfactants are contained in the detergent, which dissolve unsightly dirt particles. Limescale deposits are removed by the water softener contained in the detergent.
7. Different toilet cleaning supplies
Remember that you use different cleaning supplies for different parts of the toilet. You should clean the toilet seat with different means than the inside of the toilet. This must not be cleaned with caustic chemicals or cleaning agents. You should also use different sponges.
8. Toilet stone for smell
A toilet block usually ensures a permanently pleasant smell. This brings a good smell, but does not save cleaning.
9. Dishwashing tablets also clean toilets
No denture cleaner available in the house? But dishwasher tabs for the machine instead? Great – because these are also suitable for cleaning the toilet. Throw two pills into the toilet bowl, let sit and rinse.
10. Curved toilet brush gets into the corners
Most toilet brushes have a straight handle, but it’s worth getting a toilet brush with a wire. You can bend this well and you can get under the inner edge of the toilet much better with it than with a conventional brush.
