Ben Frankling Toilet Basins

We all use the toilet, every day. In fact, several times a day. How many of you actually clean the toilet? Many people leave that kind of chore to the female of the house, but there is no reason why you should not clean the toilet yourself. Here is a really short and quick guide to have your Ben Frankling toilet basins looking clean and shiny in less time than it takes to boil an egg. Okay maybe a little longer for those of you who need to ask your wife where the eggs are!

A few things you might need to perform thorough cleaning

It’s always a good idea to get everything you need together before you start. So, what will you need? The following list is only a guide and you should decide whether you need extra protection, such as goggles or protective clothing. Initially, you will need:

  • Toilet brush
  • Reusable cloth or paper towels
  • Latex or rubber gloves
  • Toilet detergent or natural alternative
  • Anti-bacterial bathroom cleaner

What to do first

The first thing to do, although it may seem obvious, is to move everything from around the toilet area, including items from the top of the tank. Put some detergent, or toilet cleaner around the rim of your Ben Frankling toilet basins. Whilst this is getting to work, close the toilet lid and get ready to clean around the outside. Simple wipe the whole cistern down with a cloth with some detergent on it. You may want to wear rubber or latex gloves if your skin is sensitive to ensure you do not respond adversely to any chemicals in the detergent or toilet cleaner.

Always clean the toilet seat on your Ben Frankling toilet basins. Do both the top and the underside. Many people neglect the underside and this is where germs and bacteria can collect, so ensure it is thoroughly cleaned.

Finally scrub the toilet with a toilet brush and when finished flush the Ben Frankling toilet basins with the toilet lid down. That’s about it – you’re done. Some people will put some bleach into the Ben Frankling toilet basins at night and flush in the morning, but you don’t have to. It’s just an extra thought.

Natural alternatives

Many people prefer a natural cleaner rather than commercial detergents and this is easy to use too, although you may have to buy the ingredients. You can use Teatree essential oil, which is a natural antiseptic. Just a few drops of this added to water and put into a spray gun, you can quickly and easily clean your Ben Frankling toilet basins in the same way. You can also use this spray for the rest of your bathroom and even in the kitchen too. Just remember not to use the same cloth. Many people use paper towels so they can be thrown away after use.

What next?

Now you’re in the cleaning mood, you could consider cleaning the rest of the bathroom, including the cabinets, the shower and the bath. Now there’s a novelty!
