If You Clean Your Toilet This Way, You're Doing it Wrong (3 Toilet Cleaning Techniques to AVOID!)

If You Clean Your Toilet This Way, You're Doing it Wrong (3 Toilet Cleaning Techniques to AVOID!)

Maintaining a sparkling clean toilet not only ensures a hygienic home but also prolongs the life of your loo. Have you been cleaning your toilet the right way or does your cleaning routine fall into the trap of including these 3 common toilet cleaning mistakes?

1. Using harsh chemicals

One of the most common mistakes homeowners make is using harsh chemical cleaners to tackle toilet stains. These products might promise a quick fix, but they often contain harmful chemicals that can damage your toilet's surface and harm the environment with every flush. Instead, opt for environmentally friendly cleaning products that are gentle yet effective.

“But they don’t work as well as harsh chemicals on stains!” That’s where you’re wrong. If you look around online, there are plenty of quality cleaning products on the market that are formulated to break down stains and grime without harming your toilet or the planet.

2. Using abrasive cleaning tools

Vigorous scrubbing with abrasive brushes or scouring pads is usually the go-to method for toilet cleaning. This can scratch and wear down your toilet's surface over time, leading to a dull appearance and making it more susceptible to staining. A cleaning tool with a silicone or microfibre cleaning attachment may prove to be a gentler toilet cleaning solution than other abrasive products.

3. Neglecting to protect

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: “When cleaning is involved, protection is the best prevention.”

We recommend coating your toilet with a nanocoat solution. This will form a hydrophobic barrier, making it harder for stains to stick and reducing the amount of time you’ll need to spend bent over the loo with a toilet brush in hand.

By using less harsh chemicals, choosing gentler cleaning tools, and protecting your toilet with nanocoat, you can ensure a cleaner, more environmentally friendly home. Your toilet and the planet will thank you.
