The water line in the toilet bowl should be lowered, and there are at least 4 different ways to accomplish this. A disinfectant or detergent cleaner or bowl cleaner should be applied to a bowl swab and starting under the rim working down, cleaning the bowl. Disinfectant/detergent cleaner should be applied to the outside surfaces including the handle and allowed to remain wet for ten minutes for a total kill of bacteria, fungus and virus. Flush the toilet, and rinse the outer surfaces. A phosphoric bowl cleaner can be used in toilets with hard water or in extreme hard water conditions where the toilet is not cleaned often a hydrogen chloride based (muratic acid) can be used. Be care of the "kick back fumes" and dripping it on nylon clothing and carpeting. Recommended Materials - # Rubber gloves or vinyl work gloves (type worn to wash dishes) # Eye Protection (usually required in cleaning toilets outside the home) # Disinfectant/detergent/cleaner (any chemical that calls itself a disinfectant and has an E.P.A. number on the label to back-up the claim of being a disinfectant) # Disposable toweling or launderable cloth # Bowl Swab (12-inch long plastic handle with a bunny tail material at the end approximately 4-inches in diameter); Optional Materials - Acid based bowl cleaner depending on the hardness of water and/or frequency of cleaning: # citric acid - safest to use but slowest to remove mineral deposits # phosphoric acid - safer than hydrochloric acid, won´t smoke chrome. (Hydrochloric acid is harsh, use only on porcelain with extreme care and only on the worst mineral build-ups. Note: hydrochloric bowl cleaner will "melt" nylon carpet and nylon hose, so be careful.) # Pumice stick (an alternative to harsh bowl cleaners for removing mineral stains and deposits)
