Tip You can use an old toothbrush to clean any cracks and crevices that are hard to reach. Step 8: Scrub toilet The bowl should be ready to clean by now. Scrub it thoroughly with the toilet brush, especially under the rim. Tip Scrub vigorously along the waterline, but if a ring remains, rub it with a wet pumice stone. Step 9: Flush toilet Flush the toilet and use the clean water to rinse the brush before you put it away. Just think: If you did this again soon, your toilet would never have the chance to get dirty... Did You Know?
