 How in the world do you ladies keep your toliet clean?  I clean it every single day, and it still reeks.

I have tried every cleaner out there.  I cannot get rid of the smell.

What do you guys do?  Help!

I gave my oldest a thing of clorox wipes - any mess that appears while using, he has to wipe up.  It's great!

the hinges catch a lot of pee--make sure you are taking the plastic caps off and scrubbing them at least once a week.

My current plan of action is bleaching the floor and lower bowl at least once a week. Half way through the week, I use a Mr.Clean with Febreeze, and spray down the bowl and the floor again. I will often spray the wall beside the toilet as well with this. And the inside of the lid, and the "ring".

I use Toilet duck once a week. And then put a gob of the Scrubbing bubbles stuff under the rim. That really helps deodorize!

Hope that helps.

PS-I am going to repaint the loo this summer to a really really high quality scrubbable paint for kitchen bath or whatever is guaranteed to non-stain. I hate smelling like a public washroom!

A lot of great kids, and a full time job mean very little time to play! Miss you all!!
Thank you In-Gender and Maureen for giving me a place to dream, and the tools to chase those dreams<3

From my experience, older toiets will have a build up way under the rim where you can't or barely see unless you really get in there. If this is your problem, maybe with those bleach tablets that sit in the back tank, you know when you have to lift the heavy lid, it will help get rid of it. You need to add more over time b/c they do dissolve, keep an eye on them. This is only if this is what you have, of course.

 Have you checked it is flushing out properly, we had this problem at our last rental house the toilet flushed the big things down (yuck) but didn't actually flush out. My dad suggested putting food colouring in after I did a TMI and sure enough there was red at the bottom of the bowl. Also the covering shinny stuff chipping off can hold smells. Yuck that toilet was foul I hated having friends use it they probley thought I never cleaned it.

A few things:

Toilet tabs with bleach. I drop a new one in once a month even if the other one hasn't completely dissolved.

I wipe it down with bleach and water every day.

I steam shark the bathroom once a week.

I make DH and DS drink lots of water. Lots.

I ask DH and DS to only use one toilet in the house so that I don't have to do all that cleaning with all 3 toilets every day/week.

My best wishes to all TTC and congrats to all that get their babies

Spray with straight white vinegar!!! The tiles, grout and toilet!!! Let it sit a while before wiping away with wet ones, seems to work!
