The closestool is an important part of the bathroom and a part of everyday life that is difficult to clean. The closestool is an intimate contact between our skin and sanitary ware. We must understand how it is cleaned and maintained. For our health, we should clean the closestool every day. This is the protection of family health.
Dr. Philip Tirno of New York University pointed out that if the closestool lid is opened when flushing, the instantaneous cyclone in the toilet can bring bacteria or microorganisms up to 6 meters high and suspend in the air for several hours, then fall on On walls and items. In most families, toothbrushes, mugs, towels, closestooletc. are staying in one bathroom, which is naturally susceptible to bacterial contamination. Therefore, the habit of covering the toilet lid when flushing should be developed.
- Clean the cleaning pipe and the flushing hole
The cleaning pipe and flushing holes are preferably cleaned with a long handle nylon brush and soapy water or a neutral detergent. It is recommended to clean at least once a week.
- Focus on cleaning the closestool seat
The closestool seat is very easy to get on the bacteria, so it should be cleaned in time after using the closestool. In addition, the closestool is easy to be contaminated with dirt. If it is found to have residuals after flushing, it must be cleaned with a toilet brush holder in time, otherwise it will easily form yellow spot stains, and it will also breed mold and bacteria.
- The water outlet and the outside of the base should also be cleaned.
In addition to the pipe mouth, the water outlet at the inner edge of the toilet and the outside of the base are the places where dirt is trapped. When cleaning, first lift the closestool seat and spray the inside with a toilet cleaner. After a few minutes, wash it thoroughly with the toilet brush holder.
- Please cover the closestool when flushing
When flushing, the bacteria will be washed up by the action of the airflow and fall to other items in the bathroom, such as toothbrushes, mugs, towels, etc. Therefore, it is necessary to develop the habit of covering the closestool lid when flushing.
- The glaze of the closestool should be cleaned regularly
It can be cleaned with soapy water or a mild detergent. After cleaning, it is sure to dry the water. It is strictly forbidden to clean with steel brush and strong organic solution to avoid damaging the product and eroding the pipeline.
- The toilet brush holder should be kept clean and dry
The toilet brush holder is the hero of keeping the closestool clean, however, it can also be a source of pollution if you don’t pay attention to cleaning and drying. Every time you brush the dirt, the brush will inevitably get dirty. It is best to rinse the water again, rinse it off, drain the water, spray the disinfectant, or regularly soak it with disinfectant and put it in the right place.
- Try not to set waste paper basket around the closestool.
In normal times, it is also possible to place a gradually-dissolving automatic toilet cleaner or a wall-mounted disinfection plug in the water tank, and to achieve the effects of cleaning, descaling, disinfection and sterilization by each flushing. Most households have a trash can on the toilet to store used toilet paper, but this will cause bacteria to spread with the air, because few people can clean it at any time, at least for a day or two, and the longer The more bacteria that breed. The toilet paper should be thrown into the toilet and washed away. As long as it is not too thick and too tough, the toilet paper can generally soften in the water quickly, so don’t worry about clogging. If necessary, you can prepare a sanitary bag and there is no need to set up a waste basket. If you must use it, you should also choose a waste basket with lid to prevent the bacteria from spreading and handle the used toilet paper in time.
