Can we just be honest for a second? Does anyone really like cleaning the toilet? I do not. Since I have three boys, cleaning toilets is a frequent chore around my house.
This summer I’m working with Scotch-Brite to share with you some of their awesome cleaning products. I figured I would start with my least favorite thing to clean, toilets!
Let’s start with the bowl, because in a house with three boys this is actually the cleanest part of the toilet. I love the Scotch-Brite toilet bowl brush for a few reasons.
First it comes with a holder. Personally, I prefer to have a toilet brush next to every toilet. It makes for easy cleaning and you don’t have to carry a wet and dripping brush that just came out of your toilet through your house. But if you don’t have room for a brush in every bathroom, the holder allows you to carry the brush without dripping toilet water on the floor.
Second it has bristles. Whoever thought you could clean the toilet with a sponge did not live with my family. We need nice bristles that point in all sorts of directions to thoroughly clean around the bowl and under the rim. The Scotch-Brite toilet bowl brush has nice firm bristles that can get to all those hard to reach places.
Do you know how nervous I was taking a picture over the toilet? Seriously, I’ve dropped my phone in the toilet twice in the past 3 years!
Oh, and for those little boys with really bad aim, Scotch-Brite makes a great grout cleaning tool that works great around the base of the toilet!
So here’s a few toilet cleaning tips and a giveaway for you.
Toilet Cleaning Tips
- Once a day quickly brush the toilet bowl. This should be easy to remember because your brush is right next to the toilet. I know everyone goes in there at least once a day. You don’t even have to use any cleaner. A quick swish with the brush will keep it cleaner longer.
- Once a day have the people who miss the toilet bowl the most (aka the boys) wipe down the seat. You can have them use a baby wipe, a cleaner wipe, or a paper towel. But daily wiping makes a huge difference.
