The Importance of Regular Toilet Cleaning

Before we get into the nitty-gritty of toilet cleaning, it's crucial to understand why regular maintenance is essential. A clean toilet not only contributes to a fresh-smelling bathroom but also helps prevent the buildup of germs and bacteria that can lead to health issues.

How often should you be cleaning your toilet?

Experts say cleaning your toilet once every week or every other week is enough. But, if anyone in your house is sick, it's best to clean your toilet every two to three days to prevent the spread of germs.

How often should you clean a toilet brush?

Don't forget to clean your toilet cleaning tools as well! To clean your toilet brush, pour boiling water over it and let it air dry in an open space so it's not left to sit in water which could grow mold.
