How to Clean Your Toilet with Little Effort

3. Do it Regularly

The biggest trick to making toilet cleaning as effortless as possible is to do it frequently. Avoiding the buildup of germs and grime makes the job much easier and means you won’t have to scrub too hard to get it clean. Do a quick wipe down twice a week, and give the bowl a light scrub with your cleaner of choice at least once a week so the job never gets too cumbersome.
