Now that you know the easiest way to unclog a toilet, let's address another unpleasant reality: the buildup on the back of your toilet. (Don’t act like you don’t know what we’re talking about.) Here’s how to erase it from your life forever.
What you need: A clean toilet brush (not the one you use inside the bowl) and all-purpose cleaner.
What you do: Reach around the bowl--really get back there--and spray liberally. Then, with the help of the new toilet brush, go to town scrubbing away. If the crust still won’t budge, turn on your shower and steam up the room to loosen it up.
How often do I do it? Whenever you clean the other parts of the toilet. Or every other time. It’s your clean little secret.
