Toilet Cleaning: Pumice Style

Toilet Cleaning: Pumice Style

– Hacked by Sasha M. –

Here's what you need:

  • Pumice Stone
  • Cleaning Gloves

I recently came across a post on Pinterest about cleaning your toilet with a pumice stone. I know what you are thinking. It is kind of weird to use an item dedicated to making our feet feel and look beautiful to clean out our dirty toilets. Full disclosure, I’m kind of desperate. We are trying to sell our home. Trying to keep our bathrooms clean for showings with 6 little kids running around is, well, difficult. I was kind of hoping this would get our toilets sparkling in no time flat.

There are only two steps involved:

Step 1: Put a pumice stone in the toilet water.

Step 2: Scrub your toilet with the stone.

I included wearing cleaning gloves, in this post, because I’m not sticking my hands in toilet water. I have to admit I felt kind of weird getting that close to my toilet in order to clean it. I’m used to grabbing some cleaner and a toilet brush or even those disposable refillable scrub brushes that our on the market now. This was my first time sticking my hand in the toilet…and I can’t say I liked it.

This hack does clean the toilet with no chemicals, and it is fairly cheap (it cost less than $2 for the pumice stone). However, if you are like me and don’t want to be that up close and personal with your toilet bowl, you aren’t going to like this one! It does take a good amount of elbow grease to scrub off the rings around the toilet water. Being that up close and personal with the toilet might make you feel rather sick … or maybe that’s just me.

Verdict: Do not throw stones at this porcelain house.
