Since it’s Friday, my normal clean house day. I thought I’d have a show and tell post about cleaning bathrooms, well toilets, but they’re in the bathroom. Unless of course you still have an outhouse, then my friend, you are on you’re own.
First off I start with my favorite bathroom cleaner… and oh my .. it’s fantastic. It cleans everything in there. It won’t kill you to smell it, you don’t have to wear gloves, won’t leave little white spots on your clothes, it’s great. Without further ado.. Mrs. Myers and vinegar. Yep, that’s it. I use about a 1/4 of a spray bottle of Mrs. Myers and fill it up the rest of the way with vinegar.
If you have a weak stomach… I’d look away for a minute or two.
So this is the result of telling Snowflake that he is responsible for cleaning his own bathroom. The bathroom that only he uses, but since it’s perfect for this post I’ll let him slide today.
All you gotta do is spray everywhere you want clean… easy enough, am I right? Then let the spray sit there, I let it sit on Snowflake’s bathroom a couple of hours, cuz gross. When the couple of hours was up, (laundry and such) I went back upstairs and scrubbed a bit, but not real hard with the scrubby side of blue sponge, TADA…. Clean!!
On to the toilet part of the post, and OMG!!! I was flipping amazed!!! Something I saw on Pinterest actually worked!! I’ll tell y’all the saga of the glass showers doors another time. All I know is this actually worked!! But of course I didn’t pin it, and now I can’t find the post, so if y’all know who or where…. I so wanna thank the poster!! Cuz it worked. Let me tell y’all what it was that worked, you know that ring you get in your toilet from hard water? Well, I know how to get rid of it and with what. Because I can sure tell you what doesn’t work, bleach, soft scrub, comet, that blue acid stuff, nothing. I had given up and was pretty prepared to just live with the ring. Then on Pinterest at 2 o’clock in the morning, (no I couldn’t sleep, damnit) I found the post that changed all my ringed toilets. Using stuff I already had. See glass shower door post soon.
The 2 things you need are, drywall sandpaper and Bar Keepers Friend. Although I discovered you really don’t need the Bar Keepers. Took under 5 minuets, I was so impressed! I have the pictures to prove it. I cleaned 4 toilets just to make sure it wasn’t a fluke.
That’s it, that’s all, do try it I bet it’ll work for y’all too. But if it doesn’t see the glass shower door post soon.
Oh, by the by… here’s the link to the drywall sandpaper
Till next time…
