#2 Toilet Body
You probably clean your tank often, but what about all the bits and pieces that surround the tank, and the floor itself?
For porcelain thrones, I recommend a Soft Scrub with bleach to clean the minuscule cracks that form in the glaze over time. For any non-porcelain parts, vinegar will do. Start with the top and spray all the way around — the lid, under the lid, the seat, . ...
