Proper toilet cleaning goes beyond dousing the bowl with chlorine-infused gels. It also demands thorough attention to the external parts of the toilet, particularly the seat. Harmful bacteria in the millions, if not billions, accumulate on it daily. Discover a trick that simplifies your bathroom cleaning routine and emits a pleasant aroma from your toilet without the need for a block.

Apply it to the toilet bowl, and bid farewell to unpleasant odors

Regardless of size, cleaning the bathroom usually requires much time compared to the other rooms in your house. All sanitary fittings, including bathroom fixtures, must be thoroughly washed. However, despite frequent cleaning, an unpleasant smell can sometimes persist from the toilet bowl. If it's not due to a blocked drain, the problem probably originates from the external surface.

It's essential to clean both sides of the toilet—inside and outside. Although the inside of the toilet is usually cleaned more frequently, many people neglect the outside, which can harbor bacteria and remnants of urine, mainly if men also use the bathroom.

Decaying urine gives off an extraordinarily intense and unpleasant aroma. Thankfully, an effective solution exists. To eliminate toilet odors, apply shaving foam to the exterior of the toilet, including the base. Don't forget the toilet seat and the area between the seat and the toilet bowl.

Allow the foam to sit for 10 minutes, then wipe it off with a cloth soaked in warm water. The shaving foam not only cleans the seat but also absorbs the unpleasant odor. In addition, it creates a protective layer that prevents excess fluids, including urine, from hardening on the toilet. Many hotels use this useful trick.
