A piece of equipment in the home which is germ-laden is the toilet, it deserves special care and sanitary attention. When cleaning, you must do the following:
- Use rubber gloves to protect yourself.
- Pour a toilet cleaner and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes until the stains are loosened and dripped down at the base.
- Scrub all areas thoroughly with the use of a toilet brush, including the U-bend as long as you can reach.
- Allow the cleaner to remain in the toilet for five minutes or more before flushing.
- Flush the toilet.
- Pour bleach at the toilet and leave it for one hour or until the next use.

Generally, toilets are made from vitreous china so they are easy to clean but it acquires rust stains especially in the seat hinges. To remove the stains, just dab it with bleach and leave it for an hour or more and scrub it using a steel wool. Never forget to use rubber gloves.
Showers and Baths
The shower and the area around it are prone to mildew. To reduce the growth of mildew, you can open the shower door when not in use. This will allow to dry the area and inhibits the growth of mold. The major concern is how to take away mildew which has been there for a long time. Just spray the walls with a bleach solution, one part bleach mixed with three parts water or mildew inhibitor, let it sit for fifteen minutes and rinse thoroughly. Always make sure to have proper ventilation when using bleach and other cleaning products.
