Believe it or not, but there is a right way to cleaning toilets and a wrong way! And believe it or not again, but many of us do not clean out toilets properly. It might be the Job from hell for most folks, but we can do without our loos about as much as we can cope without a hole in our head, so we should care for them with love and consideration.
Cleaning Toilets is Quick & Easy!
Cleaning toilets is usually one of those jobs that the lady of the house undertakes. The reasons are simple! Men either don't get it, or they make such a botch job of cleaning the loo that they never get asked again. Quite crafty, wouldn't you say? Actually, cleaning the toilet really isn't such a big deal, and so long as it's done regularly, that porcelain will not only gleam, but it'll be so sanitary it'll have less germs than the kitchen table.
The grownup potty is not the topic of casual conversation and it’s usually one product of the home which is quickly decided upon and purchases. But that said there is big business in bogs, and one popular item in the catalogue was that of the portable toilet. Portable toilets and disposable bags! Yuk, whatever next?
Anyway, in our house, we use little more than a bottle of germicide for toilet cleaner and a good old fashioned mop to indulge in cleaning toilets. During the times I have witnessed the cleaning staff in my office or at a mall, I have noticed that they use very similar equipment for cleaning toilets. The exception is our janitor at the office, who uses liberal doses of the same noxious acid in his mission of cleaning toilets on all the floors. Can’t say I disagree with the chap. Cleaning toilets in your home is one thing, but cleaning toilets at places frequented by hordes of other individuals, many of who refuse to flush toilets, is another thing altogether!
Who knows, maybe the chemical fumes are a way for him to knock his senses out before he begins cleaning toilets. He does seem to do a very good job though and I can’t really complain about the maintenance of our office toilets. They invariably sparkle and are always clean and dry. But each time I think about cleaning toilets, I almost sully them all over again!
But getting back to the catalogue, there was a whole range of cleaning equipment and products, especially used for cleaning toilets. Now considering that I hate cleaning toilets as much as the next man, I can only consider it an act of a higher power to find myself browsing through that catalogue. I mean what other reason could there be?
Anyhow, I dutifully went up to the hardware store the catalogue guided me to and bought myself some heavy duty equipment to help me with cleaning toilets. I bought a real sturdy toilet brush, a couple of bathroom exhaust fans, which should help quickly remove any unpleasant odors, and a few other chemical cleaning supplies to assist with hygiene and aromas. After all, my disdain for cleaning toilets had never gone down well with the other members of my family. While each of them took turns at cleaning toilets at home, I ran far away each time they looked for me to help them with the terrible task.
Now, with my newly purchased equipment, I was eager to prove that I too could indulge in cleaning toilets like the next man. Provided I have purchased the right equipment of course, as it really is a battle against the stink bombs in our loos!
