Ever notice yellow stains or a brownish color where the toilet seat is bolted to the toilet? You wonder how does that get there? This is where the real germs are. The sprays of water mixed with you know what congregate under the bolts. If you notice a smell coming from the toilet even after you’ve cleaned it this is probably where it’s coming from.
Honey I Need A Screwdriver!
Getting your husband or son’s involved in cleaning the toilets is a good way to give them more purpose in life. So ask them to get a flat head screwdriver with a wide head on it and you’ll peak his interest and soon he’ll be getting that lid off for you. The American Standard ones can be hard to take off as holding the plastic nut underneath can be tricky while unscrewing the bolt. With some newer designs you just twist the plastic piece in the direction of the arrow and lift. They are easy to clean. WARNING if you have not cleaned under these bolts for more than six months it’s going to be yucky guaranteed. Once you have the bolts use a toilet paper or tissue to wipe off the gross yuck. Use your ‘bathroom’ envirocloth (wet and wrung out) to wipe up all the bacteria on this area of toilet and give the seat a good wipe as well. You might want to soak and wash up the plastic nut and bolts before replacing.
