How Neat's Foaming Cleaner Makes Cleaning Effortless

Welcome to the ultimate guide on how to make your toilet sparkle with minimal effort! Here at neat, we take cleanliness seriously, but we also know how to have some fun AND be kind to the planet while doing it. In this guide, we'll show you how to keep your toilet pristine, tackle those stubborn stains, and even add a touch of nature to your cleaning routine. Plus, get ready to learn how neat's Refillable Foaming Toilet Cleaner can transform your bathroom into a sanctuary of freshness!

Why Embrace Clean Toilets

Let's face it, a sparkling toilet isn't just about looks; it's about creating a healthy and inviting space. Say goodbye to pesky bacteria and unwelcome odour. Regular cleaning not only keeps things hygienic but also ensures a pleasant environment for you and your loved ones to enjoy. Don’t skip bowl cleaning day!

How Often Should You Spruce Up Your Throne?

Cleaning frequency? It's all about finding that sweet spot. While we suggest a weekly scrub-down to keep things in tip-top shape, feel free to adjust based on your bathroom's traffic. Busy households might need a bit more TLC, while quieter ones can get away with a bi-weekly cleanse.

Conquering Stubborn Stains

Enter Neat's foaming cleaner, the superhero of toilet cleaning (and the world’s first refillable foaming toilet cleaner).With its innovative powerfully plant based formula, that kills 99.9% bacteria - tough stains don't stand a chance. And did we mention the nozzle? It's specially designed to spray upside down, reaching those tricky spots under the rim, ensuring a thorough clean every time. Oh, and the sage and mint fragrance? The freshness is real!

Go Au Naturel

Feel like going green? Vinegar, baking soda, lemon juice—your cupboard's full of eco-friendly cleaning wonders! Whip up a DIY solution and watch as those stains fade away. Citric acid? Another natural powerhouse that'll leave your toilet gleaming. Mother Nature approves!

Citric acid is a weak organic acid found naturally in citrus fruits like lemons, oranges, limes, and grapefruits. It can be very effective in treating limescale in a toilet. Limescale, which is a buildup of mineral deposits primarily consisting of calcium carbonate, can be stubborn to remove, especially in areas with hard water. Citric acid's acidic properties help dissolve and break down these mineral deposits, making it an excellent natural cleaner for limescale removal. Here's how you can use it to clean a toilet:

  • Make a Citric Acid Solution: Don’t forget the gloves! Mix citric acid powder or crystalline citric acid with warm water to create a solution. 
  • Apply the Solution: Pour the citric acid solution into the toilet bowl, ensuring that it covers the stains and reaches under the rim. 
  • Let It Sit: Allow the citric acid solution to sit in the toilet bowl for at least 30 minutes to an hour. This gives it time to break down the stains and mineral deposits.
  • Scrub: After the solution has had time to work, use a toilet brush to scrub the bowl thoroughly, paying particular attention to areas with stubborn stains or buildup.
  • Flush: Once you've scrubbed the bowl, flush the toilet to rinse away the loosened debris and citric acid solution.
  • Repeat if Necessary: For especially tough stains or buildup, you may need to repeat the process multiple times until the toilet bowl is clean to your satisfaction.

Using citric acid to clean your toilet is effective, environmentally friendly, and safer than some commercial cleaners that contain harsh chemicals. However, be cautious when using it on surfaces that may be sensitive to acids, such as marble or certain types of metal. Always test in a small, inconspicuous area before applying it to the entire surface
