Stains on toilets?

A toilet is present in almost 90% of the world’s bathrooms. The throne, as it is popularly known, is so important in our daily lives that it is estimated that we spend approximately 92 days a year on it. That adds up to a lot of time.

That is why it is important to keep toilets clean, bacteria-free and sparkling, as they play an important role in our daily lives, to the point of influencing our health.

Stained toilet?

Stains are very common in toilets. However, this does not make them any less unpleasant, as an ugly stain implies a lack of hygiene and can become a source of bacteria.

So, if my toilet has a stain, what should I do?

The first thing is to take into account the color of your toilet, since the type of product or element to use to clean it depends on this. For example, chlorine is ideal for white “thrones”, but if you use it on toilets of other colors, you can damage the paint and even discolor and stain it.

Fact: Chlorine and bleach are good for staining and even disinfecting white toilets, but avoid using them on other colors.

It’s worth noting that there are countless cleaning chemicals on the market that promise to remove stains, scale and toilet bacteria.

Which one to choose? The one that suits your needs, taking into account the color of the tile, the ventilation of the bathroom among others. You should also know that these products should be left to act on the affected area before scrubbing with a special soft bristle toilet brush until the stain disappears, rinse with water and that’s it.

Fact: Using a different brush or hard bristles can damage and scratch the tile and a scratch is more difficult to remove than a stain. Be careful.

No chemicals

If chemicals aren’t your thing, there are homemade solutions just as effective. One of them is to use white vinegar and lemon. Two elements that you do have available in your pantry.

To use it, just add the juice of 3 lemons in 150 ml of vinegar, then drop the solution on the affected area, leave it for 5 minutes and start rubbing with a brush.

Another equally effective solution is to mix the lemon juice with 20 milliliters of hydrogen peroxide in 100 grams of baking soda. This should be stirred until you get a pasty consistency, which you should apply to your toilet and clean it with a brush on the inside and a cotton cloth on the outside. This will remove the stains and give it a shine. If you don’t have bicarbonate, you can replace it with the same amount of boric acid.

Black cola soda, myth or reality?

Well, it is not a myth, because the phosphoric acid contained in black cola soda, together with its ph, makes it a good product to remove stains from pots. To use them, just wait until the soda is at room temperature and pour it over the area to be stained, let it act for 30 minutes and then rub with a brush. You can enhance its effect by adding baking soda.

– A bathroom will never be clean until your toilet is gleaming and bacteria-free.
