Tips and Tricks for a Clean Commode

White Distilled Vinegar

White distilled vinegar is a miracle worker that can clean just about anything, including your toilet.  Pour some vinegar (about a half cup)  into the commode and let it sit for, at the very least, ten to fifteen minutes.  Once the natural acid has worked its magic dissolving stains and build-up, scrub, flush, and done!

Baking Soda

Baking soda is another marvelous product that can also be used to keep toilet rings at bay.  Simply sprinkle a bit of this powder into your toilet bowl between deep cleanings to minimize scrubbing later.  Working as a gentle abrasive, baking soda will help to keep your potty pretty by tackling those stains with every flush.

Baking Soda PLUS Lemon Juice

Baking soda PLUS lemon juice is a powerful combo cleaner for the commode.  Create a paste by mixing baking soda with lemon juice.  Scrub the mixture all over the commode and let sit for about fifteen minutes.  When time is up, give it a wipe down and a quick flush for a sparkly clean with a fresh scent!

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is not only great for disinfecting minor cuts, but this well-loved bacteria fighter is also a terrific toilet cleaner.  Pour about half a cup of peroxide in the bowl, let it sit for about 40 minutes and flush to rinse.

Toilet Cleaning Hacks


Coca-cola is a surprising, yet excellent, toilet bowl cleaner.  The phosphoric acid in soda pop can break down any yucky stains and gunk that have accrued over time in your potty.  Simply pour a can of cola in the bowl at night, and in the morning, use a scrubby brush.  All there is to do next is flush to see the results!

Pumice Stone

Pumice stone is a handy stain remover that is odorless and non-toxic.  Its rough and tough exterior will easily get rid of stains on porcelain and ceramic without leaving a scratch.  Before using, simply dampen the stone and rub all over to gently remove stains.
