I apologise for the lack of pictures but I am still having computer problems. Anyway, I think this is one post that will benefit from a lack of images!
Generally I consider myself to be a clean and hygienic person but (I will let you into a secret here) I have never really known how to properly clean a toilet! There are many sites on the Internet advising on how to clean the toilet but they don't cover everything I need to know. For example there is a video clip of a woman using colour coded gloves (used specifically for cleaning the toilet) and then she turns the taps on whilst wearing them. Yuk! After she has cleaned the toilet she changes into another pair of gloves to clean the rest of the bathroom touching the same taps that she has touched with the 'toilet' gloves! Could somebody explain to me what you are supposed to do with the 'toilet' gloves after the cleaning session? Where do you store them?
Some sites advise you to wear eye protection whilst carrying out the toilet cleaning procedure. The reader is advised to clean all surrounding objects, bins etc as 'men don't always aim correctly' and items get sprayed! After reading all this I am feeling even more inadequate with my toilet cleaning as I never imagined that things surrounding the toilet were likely to be covered in pee!
I threw out my toilet brush many months ago as I didn't like the thought of the brush sitting in a soup of germs. How do you keep the brush clean? How often are you supposed to clean it?
Armed with eye protection, rubber gloves, paper towels, a sponge (although some people advise against this) cleaning powder, disinfectant, lime scale remover and bleach spray I am now equipped to clean the toilet. Surely I don't need all this paraphernalia to clean the toilet. Do I need to wear special clothes too? Maybe I should set aside some toilet cleaning overalls and put plastic bags over my shoes. Wearing a dust mask might be a good plan of action too, to protect me from breathing in undesirable chemicals!
This post is written tongue in cheek but I would seriously like to know how you clean your toilet, what you use and how you store the 'toilet' rubber gloves! There must be a simpler way to keep the lavvy clean!
