How clean is your bowl?

Toilets flush more than our own waste, and in efforts to clean people often kill beneficial organisms and poison waterways.  It is a common misconception that a toilet bowl must smell like flowers and have blue water.  However, blue toilets mean nothing and they actually create problems for the environment.  Many toilet cleaning products have chlorine, ammonia and hydrochloric acid as ingredients, which kills bacteria that breaks down waste.  There are many more dangerous chemicals to clean toilet bowls that are environmentally damaging.  Often these chemicals are not removed water treatment facilities.

Instead, to keep your toilet clean, the regular use of a toilet brush will only takes a few seconds to do each day.  You can also use baking soda or vinegar to get a good clean feeling.  Thanks to help from this site.
