    Default How often do you clean the toilet?

    So... Just a general query, How often? And also... Wondering if I am using the most efficient technique... What do you use and whats your toilet cleaning technique?

    I clean the toilet every few days.

    I use a baby wipe to wipe from the top to the bottom (including lid and seat), put toilet duck (or similar generic brand) under the rim and leave that to sit for a few minutes then come back and flush the toilet whilst scrubbing with the toilet brush.

    Maybe once a month I'll wipe down the outside of the bowl too. I always have a flushy thing hanging off the side of the bowl too and it gets changed once a month or as needed.

    Flylady says 'nothing says I love you like a clean toilet to throw up in' LOL.

    Once a week. We have 2 and they get used equally so I figure it's the same as cleaning it twice a week
    I use bleach. Pour it around the bowl and use a brush with one of those bits that goes up under the rim as well. I also use bleach on the seat, cistern and outside the bowl.

    I wipe it with an antibacterial wipe, give it a scrub with a brush (no product though) sploosh some antiseptic stuff and bicarb in there and leave it until I need to pee next, then flush and go. Oh - once a week at least, unless we have guests then more often. There are only 2 of us and we're both girls so it doesn't get pee in strange places

    And here I was feeling silly for asking.. But clearly there is more than one way to clean a toilet lol. Your method is completely different to mine :-)

    I clean once every 4 days, I use toilet paper to wipe up wee and yucky guck under the seat and around the outside of bowl. I then use a cloth & sugar soap spray or similar starting at top working down, I finish off with bleach in the bowl with toilet brush.

    THIS!!!!
    only difference is I use antibacterial wipes and instead of the hanging flush I use the loo blue which you put in the cistern. Had to many of the hanging ones disappear down the loo.

    If we are unwell or anyone has diahorrea is clean the loo daily.

    I wipe the seat, underneath the seat and the rim of the bowl with flushable wipes daily. Every couple of days I scrub with a brush and use some nice scented toilet cleaner.

    Every weekend, or more if DS pees all over it

    I leave some Seventh Generation toilet cleaner in the bowl for a bit, then give it a good scrub. Then wipe it all over with disinfectant, including the bottom of the toilet.. then flush.

    It gets scrubbed as required and floors cleaned the same (little boys...)

    But generally

    Pineoclean wiped often
    Loo duck and scrubbed twice a week.

    Antibac wipes are the best thing ever as you can just flush!
