It is very necessary to keep our toilets clean and free from bad odours. Doing this can be difficult as the toilet represents the household body waste dumpster.
Trying to find the right cleaner can cost you your savings, Did you know that you can clean your toilet with simple household items that will work miracles in your bathroom.
Here are 15 ways you can use some of the weirdest things to clean your toilet and to eliminate the foulest odours. I must admit you never heard of these bathroom tricks before.
They may even come off as funny but believe me, they are no joke as they really work.
* PEPSI TOILET BOWL CLEANSER
This may sound cliche, but it is said that using PEPSI to clean your toilet will dissolve rust. Here is the weird way to do it. Pour an entire can of PEPSI into the bowl. Let it sit for an hour.
This will allow the acid to dissolve the stains. Use a toilet brush to scrub the bowl then flush. YOU WON’T BELIEVE YOUR OWN EYES!
*PLASTIC SODA BOTTLE
If your toilet is the older model then it may be missing the features that save on the amount of water it uses to flush. This is not so cool when you are trying to cut back on spending. To make your toilet saves on wastewater, here is how.
Using an empty one-litre plastic bottle, pour in an inch- or two of sand, then add water to fill up the bottle. Replace the lid and place the bottle in your tank, away from the mechanisms. This will reduce the amount of water used each time it flushes.
* REDUCE CONDENSATION WITH BUBBLE WRAPS
Did you know that a thing like bubble wrap can prevent your toilet tank from sweating? Let us see how it is done. The first thing you need to do is to remove the tank lid.
Flush to let the water out. When the tank is empty, go ahead and line the inside with a layer of bubble wrap. This extra layer of insulation will prevent the tank from sweating. Keep those delivery package bubble wraps.
* BOILING WATER UNCLOGS TOILET PIPES

Pour the water into the toilet bowl. It will slowly dissolve the clog and your toilet will be flushing freely again.
