    we have two loos that usually get a wipe down with loo paper or a quick scrub with the brush each day (for drips and skiddies)

    Then when ever I clean the bathrooms (can vary from every week to every fortnight) I wipe down the icky bits on seat/rim with loo paper and flush then squirt some method lil' bowl cleaner (lovely eucalyptus & mint fragrance)in around the bowl, wipe down the cistern, outside, seat under seat and rim with enjo glove - follow in that order with enjo miracle, use enjo flexi to get up under rim and base of bowl - then flush.

    If there has been a virus through teh house it gets done every day with tea tree or eucalyptus oil.

    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.

    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.
    This is me. I also put bleach or pineoclean or the like in while it sits waiting.

    After I spray the toilet, I only wipe down with toilet paper. I hate the thought of washing the rag/sponge or wasting money on wipes.

    probably not often enough to be honest.... but I do try to give more like the rim and lid a wipe and spray down frequently because jasper touches it. I had trouble toilet training him and part of it was sooooo many times telling him to not touch the toilet!!! so I try to do that often.

    but cleaning the whole thing top to bottom... we have three of the bloody things so probably only fortnightly because it's a reasonably annoying task now! plus I have to do it when jasper isn't around - because he's very helpful :-/ and when I wont have to touch the baby (wahhh I just typed newborn but she's not any more!!!!)

I then lift up the lid and spray n wipe on top of the bowl and along all connector joints. I then spray n wipe the bottom and top of the actual seat. I then spray n wipe the back box and top and around the flush button. It takes a good 10 minutes and then it's done.
    (thank goodness we only have 2 toilets) I do have issues with getting any rusty looking bits around any of the latch thingies that lift the lids... Ha ha
    Lol I take it one step further...

    I remove the whole seat/lid part, and soak in hot water with domestos in the laundry tub. I hate the idea of grossness hiding in the hinges.

    The rest gets spray n wipe (outside) and domestos (inside).

    2 or 3 times a week, but in a little over a week I start home daycare so it will be twice a day. I spray and wipr over the outside and use a cleaner for the inside. Weekends will be a full disinfectant from top to bottom.

    1-3 times a week. Only takes a minute to duck and scrub with the toilet brush. I'll also wipe over the outside with toilet paper or paper towel probably weekly.

    Eta - I HATE blue-loo! Smells like public toilet, but dh keeps buying it & using it
