1. Maintain a clean bowl

Mix one part vinegar with one part water and use this spray every day both for the exterior and the interior of the bowl. It will help you keep it clean until the next flush. Always keep pre-moistened disinfecting cleansing wipes on hand, so that you can wipe the exterior bowl between cleanings.

2. Use cleansing pads

In addition, use cleansing pads that can be clipped to the side of the bowl; they are more practical than those put inside of the toilet tank.Evgeny Kabardin / Shutterstock.com

3. Clean the outside area of the bowl

Use a household cleaner around the outer side of the bowl, leave it for a while, then wipe it off with a clean rag or paper towel. To prevent slipping and catch over-sprayings, don't forget to wipe the floor around the toilet bowl as well!

Vinegar isn't toxic, so it's a preferable cleaning solution for families with small children and pets.

4. Clean the area inside the bowl

Pour any household cleaner or toilet cleaner into the bowl, allowing it to do its job for some time. A few minutes later, use the toilet brush to scrub the bowl until it is as bright as a new pin!

Sprinkle baking soda around the bowl's interior, allowing it to work for roughly 5 minutes, then scrub it with a toilet brush.

5. Use homemade toilet bombs

Although these homemade freshening pills consist of just 3 elements, they're an effective solution for spiffing up your toilet bowl until it's spick and span.

All you need to make these bombs is a combination of essential oils, citric acid, and baking soda. Simply put one of these tablets into the bowl and watch how the fizzing process makes the toilet fresh and clean!
