4 Strange Ways to Clean Your Toilet

Are you at a loss for how to get your toilet clean? Try these unconventional methods!

Are you at a loss for how to clean your toilet? It’s easy to feel lost even if after you’ve used a commercial cleaning product, and your toilet doesn’t look any different. But don’t lose hope just yet. There are always unconventional ways to solve any problem, so check out these 4 strange ways to clean your toilet. 


You might know this from its distinctive red can. But did you know cola can be effective for cleaning your toilet? As much as you’d like to think it’s not possible, seeing is believing. If you’ve been troubled by rings of rust that you just can’t get rid of any other way, then try pouring a full can of this fizzy drink into the bowl. You’ll need to let it sit for an hour, but the same acid that attacks your teeth can get rid of any grime on your toilet.


Vinegar is well known for its sharp, tangy flavor and as an excellent condiment for your order of fries or your kettle cooked potato chips. But vinegar is also a powerful cleaning solution. Although you might think bleach is better, vinegar isn’t as harsh, especially if you despise the smell of bleach.

Hot Water

Hot water is also good for cleaning your toilet. After all, as comforting as a nice shower or bath are, there are more ways to use the hot water in your home than just to feel better. If your toilet is presenting you with a stubborn clog that you can’t get rid of with a plunger, simply boil some water and pour it into the toilet and see what happens next.

Nail Polish

The bolts and screws that hold your toilet together are probably prone to rust. After all, between all of the flushing and steam, they’re going to be coated with condensation. Luckily, you can use nail polish to get all that nasty rust off.
