How do I clean my toilet around the inside rim?


I'm talking about where the new water comes in. It brown around the under rim where all the little holes are.

    Patricia, I am so glad you asked. Some people just ignore it because a toilet brush doesn’t normally go there. But some toilet brushes have what looks like a bottle brush attached to them, and that is exactly what the little brush is for. You can also wipe it with toilet paper every time you flush and the grime won’t build up. If I am doing a deep cleaning, I use a sponge with detergent on it to clean under the entire rim, including that elusive area at the front. Happy cleaning! ☺️

    Hi Patricia,

    That was a helpful post from Jewell, they have these little brushes at Amazon with really fast shipping.

    Hello, Why not use a toilet cleaner that gets rid of Scale especially under the Rim!

    I have good results from a pumice stone and a little Barkeepers Friend.

    Try spraying WD40, let set a few minutes and brush gunk away. Merry Christmas

    Using an old toothbrush with some toilet bowl cleaner on it works very well for me.

    The Pumice stone will DO the job, for sure!!

    Spray it with vinegar first, then use a pipe cleaner. Worked for me.
