Having a sparkling toilet that smells fresh and clean can be a great mood uplifter. However many times, we have had to deal with bad odour emanating from the toilet which makes us reluctant to clean the toilet. Also at times, we end up spending a lot of time scrubbing away to get rid of limescale build-up and other stains. We all know that the toilet seat is a frequently touched surface which makes it a hotbed for germs, viruses, and bacteria that could cause infection and illnesses. To address all these concerns, we not only need to clean our toilet properly, but also require the right products to do so. To help you keep your toilet smelling consistently fresh and clean for 2 to 3 days, we have listed some easy-to-follow tips below.
1. Select the Right Toilet Cleaning Products
We have tried several products to keep our toilet smelling fresh, but have always been disappointed with the malodour that would crop up just after a couple of hours of cleaning. But when we tried out Domex Fresh Guard Disinfectant Toilet Cleaner, we were pleasantly surprised by the fragrance and freshness that lasted for three days! We also found it extremely convenient to use as it has a bent bottleneck that helps the toilet cleaner reach even deep corners under the toilet rim. Its thick consistency helps in evenly spreading across the toilet bowl and rim.
2. Pour Some Toilet Cleaner in the Flush Tank
This is a tip we have tried and loved. It is simple and brings down the amount of attention your toilet bowl needs. After the routine cleaning of your toilet, just add a couple of drops of the toilet cleaner into the flush tank. We have seen that because of this, with each flush, the toilet cleaner makes its way into the toilet bowl thereby eliminating any residue after use. If done consistently, it also helps break down any mineral and limescale deposits and one does not have to spend time scrubbing the toilet to get rid of stains. We used Domex Fresh Guard Disinfectant Toilet Cleaner for this purpose as we loved the fact that it helped the toilet not only smell fresh but also look sparkling clean. On checking its label, we learnt that it contains acid for killing germs effectively which made it greatly appealing to us.
3. Don’t Forget to Clean the Exterior of the Toilet
While we might be scrubbing the toilet bowl regularly, we may miss out on cleaning the outer part of the toilet, especially the toilet seat. We need to ensure that while cleaning the toilet, the entire porcelain of the toilet is wiped down with a cleaning product. Also, with the pandemic in full swing, we suggest you spray the toilet seat and flush handle with a disinfectant regularly to prevent the spread of germs and viruses.
4. Repeat Cleaning after 2-3 Days
We have seen that the best way to keep the toilet clean is to not let it get out of hand in the first place. The more we try to put it off, the dirtier it gets and the worse it smells.
To keep the toilet clean and hygienic at all times, we ensure that we follow a diligent routine of scrubbing the toilet bowl with a toilet cleaner like Domex Fresh Guard Disinfectant Toilet Cleaner every three days. We noticed that this product leaves the toilet looking clean and leaves behind a refreshing fragrance in the toilet for three days in a row!
5. Disinfect your Toilet Brush
It doesn’t matter how often you scrub and clean your toilet if you are doing it with a dirty brush. We recommend soaking the brush and holder in a solution of vinegar and water in equal proportions overnight each time after it’s used. The next day you need to use rubber gloves while taking out the brush and holder. For thorough cleaning, we suggest that you sprinkle some baking soda over the surface area of the brush and use a separate brush to clean between the bristles. Lastly, hold the brush and holder under the hottest water you have access to until the water running off them is clear. We have seen that it’s best to air dry the holder and brush properly before storing them again.
These tips will help you easily achieve a toilet smelling consistently fresh and clean for three days at a stretch.
