Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to show you how to clean a toilet. What you want to do first is, you want to- we're going to do the whole toilet, so what you want to do first is, you want to just come with a paper towel, and then just get- anything that's loose, you want to get up off the toilet, and then you start with the top of the toilet. And there are many products out there you can use, I'm just going to use a spray like Fantastic or 409, and I'm just going to spray. You want to be sure and hit where the seat is joined, there's a lot of times dirt, and urine will get into those cracks, so you just want to give a really good spray to the top, you also don't want to miss the base of the toilet, going all the way around, up in all the cracks, and then with a sponge or paper towel, and I'm going to dip my paper towel, and just start, I'm going clean the top, and then go around the base, I'm just going to go all the way around. You want to clean the seat, the bottom of the seat around the bowl, and then I'm just going to throw this dirty one in the bucket and start with a clean one, and do the same thing down in the base. Then you want to rinse, and really get all- you want to be sure that you get all the soap or the chemical off your toilet. Then with- I like using a powder when I do the bowl, and that way the cleaner will cling to the water and cling to the walls of the toilet, and then you just go around, starting with the back, and you want to be sure that you get up around the ridge, you flush. And you might want to flush several times, and then with the clean water that comes in, I just like to take it to be sure that I don't have any residue of soap, and then going back and drying the seat, the bowl, and you now have a clean toilet. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how you clean a toilet.
