O.k., now remember what I said at the beginning, we clean from the cleanest part to the dirtiest part. So now that we got all of this clean, we've got the back of it, the toilet, the cover, the seat, the lid's all clean. We don't want to go inside the toilet yet and so we've cleaned the cleaner parts around the outside o.k. because we don't want to bring any of the dirtier things outside of the toilet. So what I'm going to do is again I'm going to get a concentrated amount of disinfectant on the toothbrush because we need to scrub one more area very very well, o.k. Now down here this is where we're going to have a build up, things that when, when you splash when you go to the bathroom if it runs over you're going to have a build up in two areas, around the base of the toilet and around here. I don't know if you, if you notice on your toilets but around this knob so you see these dark, these dark, the dark circle that's around that knob? Well that is a build up of bacteria right there. When you see any kind of dark colors or lines that is bacteria. So you want to make sure you scrub that area with a toothbrush. Again look how easy that is, so quick, so easy. The disinfectant is killing everything it's touching gone, alright. So you're going to do that to both sides because you've got one down on this side as well. And, and that's just a way of having a clean base to your toilet.
