Toilet bowl rims comprise the outer edge of the inside of the toilet bowl. The underside of the rim can be difficult to clean because it is largely obstructed from view.
Supplies required to clean the toilet bowl rim include a toilet brush, a toilet cleaner, a wash cloth, disinfectant and rubber gloves.
Apply the toilet cleaner under the rim prior to using a brush. Then use the toilet brush to scrub underneath the rim until all grime is removed.
Proper ventilation is a safety consideration. The bathroom fan should be on and windows opened, so the fumes from all disinfectants and cleaning supplies can be removed.
To ensure that germs and bacteria are not a factor, wear rubber gloves while cleaning a toilet bowl rim. Goggles are also a good way to keep germs, bacteria and chemicals away from the eyes.
Do not wear any nice clothing or have any nice items nearby when cleaning the toilet bowl rim. Cleaning supplies can sometimes stain these types of items if they come in contact.
