Toilet cleaning is often a laborious task, with challenges like yellowed stains, calcified bowls, and unpleasant odors frequently resulting from inadequate maintenance. However, there is a simple and effective solution to keep your toilet clean and fresh, and it involves an item commonly found in every household: soap. Discover how to use different types of soap in your toilet to effortlessly achieve a sparkling clean bowl.
Choosing Your Soap
Whether it’s black soap, liquid soap, or dishwashing liquid, you have the flexibility to choose a cleaning agent that suits your needs for an easy and cost-effective way to clean your toilet bowl.
Different Ways to Use Soap in the Toilet
Cleaning with Soap Chips
For effective cleaning and odor elimination, take a bar of soap and cut it into chips.
Boil these chips in water until they dissolve.
Let the mixture cool, then add a few drops of tea tree oil for its antifungal and antibacterial properties.
Pour the solution into a spray bottle and apply it to the toilet bowl. Use a toilet brush to scrub the surfaces.
Toilet Tablets Made with Liquid Soap
Mix 30g of citric acid, 130g of baking soda, and a few drops of your preferred essential oil in a container.
Add a teaspoon of liquid soap, combine thoroughly, and pour into an ice cube tray.
Let it set overnight, then store the tablets in an airtight container.
To use, drop a tablet into the toilet bowl, let it sit overnight, then scrub and flush. The citric acid effectively removes lime scale, while baking soda targets stains and odors.
Using Black Soap for Cleaning
Natural and biodegradable black soap is an excellent cleaner for the entire house, especially toilets.
Mix a teaspoon of liquid black soap and two tablespoons of white vinegar in a liter of water.
The vinegar also acts as a powerful natural cleaner for disinfecting surfaces and eliminating stains and odors.
Pour this mixture into a spray bottle, apply it to the toilet bowl, and scrub with a toilet brush.
This mix can also be used for cleaning and disinfecting the toilet seat.
Dish Soap for Sparkling Toilets
Dish soap’s degreasing properties make it suitable for toilet cleaning.
Pour a small amount into the toilet bowl, scrub with a toilet brush, and flush.
For a deeper clean, mix two tablespoons of dish soap, three cups of white vinegar, and a cup of Epsom salt. Let the solution sit in the bowl for 30 minutes, then scrub and flush. Epsom salt, or magnesium sulfate, is a gentle abrasive perfect for removing stains without damaging the bowl.
A Simple Mixture for Overnight Cleaning
Combine ¼ cup of dish soap, ¼ cup of baking soda, and ¼ cup of water.
Pour this mixture into the toilet bowl, let it sit overnight, and scrub the next day to remove stains and dirt.
Using these soap-based methods, you can effectively and economically clean your toilet with ease.”
