Gone are the days of using toilet bowl cleaners, all you need is a large bottle of mouthwash, and you can clean your mouth and toilet at the same time. The mouthwash is an antiseptic and will clean away any grime or particles left over from its last use. Let it sit for 30 minutes, and scrub it away when you’re ready.
It works great; your toilet will be as pearly white as your teeth. We know it can sound odd, and the thought of having a ceramic detergent makes us feel a little uncomfortable, however, if it’s good enough for the toilet germs, it is good enough for the ones in our mouths.
