How To Use Laundry Detergent For Cleaning The Toilet – Excellent Cleaning Hack


I really don’t mind cleaning the house. I always put on my favorite playlist or podcast, and I find that doing my homework is not really that bad. However, there is one place in the house where I always put off cleaning, and that is the bathroom. If you are a parent of children, you know exactly why.

No matter how hard I try, I can never deodorize the toilet enough to make it smell good enough to last, but now that I know this trick, I think that’s going to change! Country Diaries has shared a great laundry detergent tip that will help your bathroom (and especially the toilet) smell clean and fresh for a long time.

Simply pour a cup of laundry detergent directly into the toilet tank. The weight of the detergent will cause it to sink to the bottom and stay there. That way, every time you flush, the clean, fresh smell of detergent will be activated in the tank, making your whole bathroom smell great! And don’t worry, the detergent won’t damage your toilet or septic system.

Pretty smart, right? There are few things as unpleasant as taking care of a smelly bathroom, but it doesn’t have to be that way! Just add a little detergent to the toilet tank and say hello to a clean, smelly bathroom – good “cleaning”!
