By nature, toilet seats are gross, especially in a shared environment. If you are not properly cleaning, bacteria and germs can build up, causing decreased health and an unsanitary environment. Follow along and learn how to effectively clean your seat without damaging the finish or material.
Your toilet seat should be cleaned frequently to help it stay hygienic, but that doesn’t mean that you have to disassemble it weekly. With an antibacterial wipe, soapy water, or a disinfectant spray, you can thoroughly wipe the surface, sides, and underneath the seat, making sure that you hit every part. Some cleaners may be more effective than others, but as long as you are using an antibacterial soap or cleaner, the effect will be the same.
A quick search will show you several different ways to remove stains from your seat, but many individuals have had success with a simple baking soda and vinegar solution. By combining equal parts of both ingredients, you can use a cleaning brush or old toothbrush to scrub the stain. After scrubbing, let the residual paste sit over the stain for about ten minutes. Rinse the seat with a damp cloth and repeat as needed.
Wooden Toilet Seats
When cleaning wood seats, be careful not to damage the finish or material with harsh chemicals. Antibacterial soap or detergent with a damp cloth will sufficiently clean your toilet seat and remove odors without harming the surface.
Cleaning your toilet seat is typically a simple task, as long as you are thorough, use an antibacterial cleaner, and ensure that your seat will not be damaged by the cleaner. If you have a user manual for your toilet seat, refer to any instructions before you try a different cleaner, as different seats may have restrictions. If you have a bidet toilet seat, cleaning may contain a couple of extra steps, as there are additional components that need to be cared for.
