Cleaning toilet is not on the top of the list of most enjoyable things to do, however it mus be done from time to time. Stains and rings inside the toilet bowl from hard water and other contaminants are unsightly and will cause permanent damage to the finish. Using a Brillo pad in the toilet involves using the correct type of pad. The common soap-filled steel wool pad is not suitable for cleaning toilet bowls. The scratchless all-purpose Brillo pad however, is perfect for removing stains and general cleaning inside the toilet.
Things You'll Need
- Commercial non-abrasive cleaner
- Brillo Scratchless pads
Turn off the water supply valve behind the toilet. Rotate the valve handle clockwise with your hand to turn it off. Flush the toilet and allow the water to drain from the bowl. There will be a small amount of water left in the bottom of the bowl.
Lift the toilet bowl lid and apply a non-abrasive cleaner to the stain or ring. Allow the cleaner to soak into the stain for a few minutes.
Dampen the Brillo scratchless pad with cold water. Scrub the stain or ring inside the bowl with the Brillo pad. Unsure that you get under the toilet bowl rim where the water comes through.
Rotate the supply valve behind the toilet counterclockwise to supply water to the tank and bowl. Allow the toilet to fill completely and flush the toilet to rinse away the cleaner.
Wash the Brillo scratchless pad in warm water and set it in a safe place to dry. The Brillo pad is reusable but ensure that you use it only for the toilet.
