Tips to Remove Stains on Toilets, Urinals and Tiled Surfaces

A dirty toilet bowl or urinal not only looks and smells bad but is also unhygienic. Over here we have jotted down a few simple techniques that can help you keep your toilet bowl, urinal and tiles surfaces in the washroom sparkling.

First thing first - Wear clean gloves. Germs like to hangout inside dirty commodes. While cleaning the toilet bowl and bathroom surfaces generally you don’t want your skin to come into contact with them.

Stain remover - Use Vinegar. Are you surprised? The most effective stain remover is in your kitchen. It is one of the most economical ways to get rid of stains on toilets and urinals. Apply vinegar to your toilet bowl or urinal, let it sit for some hours and scrub it with a brush for some time to see the magic.

There are other stain removers. Here’s how to use them -

  1. Mix one litre of water with a spoon of trisodium phosphate, dip a piece of cloth into the mixture and wipe off the stain.
  2. You can also use borax powder. Sprinkle borax powder into the toilet bowl, scrub it properly, wait for 10 mins and then flush water.
  3. Take half cup of bleach powder and allow it to sit on the stain for a while. Then simply flush it with water.
  4. Pumice Stone is the best stain remover. Be very careful while rubbing as pumice stones are hard and you can damage your toilet permanently bowl by scratching it. Also get rid of the pumice deposits as soon as the cleaning is done.


However, remember these stain removers are toxic, acidic, will corrode pipes and plumbing, will destroy the natural pH in your drains and the good bacteria causing organic waste decomposition and are not environmentally friendly.

Apply disinfectant cleaner to the remaining portion of the toilet.

Clean other parts of the toilet (even if they don’t look dirty). Use towels soaked in disinfectants to clean the entire area. You can also use spray cleaners and use a brush to clean the area.

Don’t forget to clean the flush handle.

You touch it every time you use the commode. Thus cleaning it is important. It’s where most of the germs live. Wipe the handle regularly with disinfectant solutions.
