How to Clean Toilet like a Pro

Toilets are an essential part of our everyday routine. Thus, they should be adequately cleaned to keep hygiene. There are tons of germs in the toilet, and not cleaning your bathroom regularly can cause health trouble.

But most people avoid cleaning the toilets themselves. If you have decided to DIY your toilet cleaning to ensure hygiene, then I have some good news for you. In this article, I am going to teach you about cleaning your toilet like a pro. So, without further ado, let’s get right into it.


Cleaning toilet tools

First things first, make sure you have gotten all the following necessary equipment for great results. So, grab the following items first:

  • Toilet brush
  • External cleaning agent
  • Internal Cleaning agent
  • Cleaning clothes
  • Mask
  • Gloves and goggles

You can also have bleach and baking soda if you wish to use them. Also, some cleaning agents are 2-in-1, i.e., go with both internal and external cleaning of your toilet. So according to your convenience, you have got a choice there as well.

External Cleaning

The right way to clean your toilet is the first to go inside. First off, remove all the stuff from your toilet. This is important because you won’t want any hindrance in your cleaning due to objects placed. Also, if stuff is placed for longer, it leaves stains under it. So, they should be essentially cleaned.

To avoid germs, flush the toilet and wear a mask to inhale nothing unwanted. Now you have to grab your external cleaning agent and spread it everywhere. Once spread properly, let it rest for some time, and then pick your external cleaning brush or suitable tool. Now, rub it over the stains and try to get off with all the dirt. Now, using water everywhere, remove the cleaner from the surface.

The toilet seat should also be cleaned from both the upside and bottom. For this, use the cleaner and clothe and remove all the dirt.

Remember, external cleaning also includes cleaning the floor and walls (if tiled) if you are going like a pro. For that also, you have to spread the cleaning agent and let it rest for a while. After that, use a good cloth for the walls while a good brush for the floor and remove all the stains. After that, flush with water everywhere and wipe to dry.

Internal Cleaning

This step includes cleaning the bowl. This is a crucial step, and you have to beware of germs as well. I would prefer you to wear goggles, a mask, and gloves mandatorily in this step.

The cleaning will be followed from top to bottom all the way. Use the cleaning agent and spread it properly inside. The cleaning agent, due to good viscosity, will drag towards down. Let it spread properly and after that, give it some time for a chemical reaction. The reaction will loosen the stains and kill the germs. Use a proper internal cleaning brush and apply it well inside the bowl.

After some time, flush the toilet, and it will all go to the drain. You can also use a cloth to dry the bowl to avoid the stains of water as well.

For extra shine, there are sprays available that will provide gloss to your cleaned toilet. It would help if you had the spray and a soft and dry cloth for this purpose. Just spray and wipe, and you will get great shine in return.

Things to Do After


Once the toilet is clean and dry, the next step is to place all the items back in their places. I would prefer you to clean the stuff as well before placing it back in place.

I would suggest you go for the best products in terms of cleaning agents to achieve remarkable results. There is usually a difference in water quality at places. Bad quality of water can leave irremovable stains, and for those, you would need special chemical agents. Chemicals like borax can help you in situations where there are hard water, lime, or rust stains.


Cleaning like a pro is not easy because you have to go for perfection. I would recommend you use the best cleaning products and the right steps that I have already mentioned.

For great results, follow the right sequence in the right way. I hope that this article would have given you all that is necessary to know. Rest is up to you. Do not wait any longer and clean your toilet like a pro.
