The Ultimate way to clean your Toilet!
When we first moved into our home, something about the Kitchen bench tops wasn’t quite right. I didn’t know why I thought that, but I did, and after a few weeks, I wondered if the gloomyness of the 90’s teal Laminex was dirt…
So I cleaned it, and again and again. Still gloomy looking. Then, I thought why not…I am getting the steel wool onto it!! lol lol So…I did, and the filth that came off it was kinda disturbing…
Now I am only telling you this, to maybe make myself feel better about the real reason I am writing this…and it is not about the bench tops…
Should I also mention a Dad and his teenage boys lived here? Would that also make me feel better as to why I didnt realsie what was lurking in my toilet? Should the neighbourhood urban party house stories make me feel better?
Well they do!!!
I love my house was loved! I love my house was really, really lived in before we moved in there. I love, that a really great guy raised his kids there – and they stayed till they all bought their own homes, and he moved to be closer to them.
My dirty bench tops made me feel the happiness that created them…but…I wasn’t to joyous about the toilet…lol
Out toilet is old, and I have scrubbed it in every way possible. But still the black marks on the sides of the lower part of the bowl remained. I resigned myself to believe it was concrete, as the bowls of some old toilets are not fully coated with porcelain.
But an accidential experiment proved me wrong!
I wanted to see if Sodium Percarbonate was any good at cleaning the toilet – just general cleaning – as I was convinced the black marks were concrete.
So I pushed all the water out of the bowl with the toilet brush, and scooped the remainder of the water out. I then sprinkled a lid full of Sodium Percarbonate just below the rim line and the rest went in the bowl. I boiled the jug and poured in 2L.
If you do this – don’t freak out…the Sodium Percarbonate will go crazy and fizz up.
Then…I left it.
Once it had cooled…I noticed…little black flecks sitting at the bottom on the bowl, sort of floating around…and it hit me…
OMG it was POO!!!!
So I got a really sharp pointy knife and the ‘black stuff’ I can now officially call poo, came away from the porcelain in one go!!
I really couldn’t believe it, and can now say if you want to absolutely and thoroughly clean your toilet bowl…give it a Sodium Percarbonate treatment.
N.B Sodium Percarbonate is biodegradable and septic safe.
Love your home and Inspire your Inner Neat!
