Cleaning the toilet can be a tough job, but what if I told you that there’s a super easy way to get it sparkling clean? All you need is a box of baking soda and some patience!

First, pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl. Make sure it’s all spread out and covering the bottom of the bowl. Then, take a brush and scrub the sides of the bowl, making sure to get all the yucky stuff off. Once you’re done scrubbing, it’s time to let the baking soda sit overnight.

While the baking soda sits in the bowl, it works its magic by breaking down all the germs and stains. In the morning, all you have to do is give the bowl a quick scrub with the brush and flush it away. 

Ta-da! Your toilet will be shining like new!

So next time you’re faced with a dirty toilet, don’t stress! Just grab some baking soda and let it do the work for you. Trust me, your bathroom will thank you.

How Often Should You Do This Method?

You can use this method of cleaning your toilet with baking soda once a week, or as often as you like to keep your toilet looking and smelling fresh. The frequency of cleaning depends on how often the toilet is used, by how many people, and also by personal preference. 

If you find that you’re noticing stains or odors more frequently, you can clean your toilet with baking soda more often. It’s a great alternative to harsh chemicals and it’s safe to use regularly without any negative effects on the toilet or the environment. It is a cost-effective solution as well.

Important Reminder:

Please be careful when using baking soda in the toilet, as it can be abrasive. If you have a porcelain toilet bowl, it’s best to use a soft-bristled brush to scrub the bowl to avoid any scratches. 

Additionally, it’s important to keep in mind that baking soda should not be mixed with chlorine bleach as it can create toxic fumes. 

Also, before you start, it’s important to check the manufacturer’s instructions for your toilet bowl, some of them may have different types of coating or material that could be damaged with baking soda.


In conclusion, using baking soda to clean your toilet is an easy, effective, and safe way to keep your bathroom smelling fresh and looking clean.

It’s a cost-effective alternative to harsh chemicals and it is safe to use regularly without any negative effects on your toilet or the environment.
