How to Keep Your Toilet Looking Like New

How to Keep Your Toilet Looking Like New

The bathroom may not be the most glamourous room in your home but it should be kept clean to look and feel sanitary. One of the main components of a clean restroom is a clean and new looking toilet. You want your guests to feel comfortable when using your restroom. If your toilet looks old, rusted or unhygienic they may become hesitant to use it. It is important for your restroom and toilet to look nice not only for you and your family but also potential house guests. At Richardson Plumbing we are always looking for new ways to bring convenience to our customers which is why we have provided a few tips to help keep your toilet looking like new.

The first thing to remember when making your toilet appear new and fresh is to keep it clean. This means cleaning it often.  Part water and part vinegar mixtures are a great and easy way to leave your toilet with a sparkle. Baking soda also cleans and deodorizes your toilet efficiently. Both of these mixtures work well for the inside and the outside of your toilet. By removing rust stains and rings around the toilet bowl you will make your toilet look new. To remove rust, try scrubbing vigorously to the inside of the toilet bowl with hydrogen peroxide for a couple of minutes. Make sure you are using the correct toilet bowl brush. Purchasing a sturdy and easier to use brush is the way to go.

If you have been scrubbing and cleaning and you find your toilet does not look sparkling it may be time to replace it altogether especially if it also has scratches or cracks. Scratches in the toilet bowl will become harder to maintain as time goes by and they get larger. A toilet with many scratches should be replaced to save you time and money with maintenance in the long run.  If your toilet has cracks it does not only look unattractive and old but it can also result in a huge mess such as leaking. If your toilet is older, it most likely does not have the advancements that a newer model has. Newer style toilets are made differently to ensure complete simplicity and comfort.  If you are wanting your toilet to look new, you may need to replace it.
