Swish and Spit :o)

Did you know you can clean a toilet bowl with mouthwash?

Pour about one cup of mouthwash into the toilet bowl. After 15 to 20 minutes, a quick swipe with a toilet brush should be all it takes to make the bowl's surface sparkle.

The disinfectants in mouthwash are designed to make teeth shine and kill germs, but they are equally effective at polishing toilet surfaces and killing toilet germs.

Alternatively, if you regularly use mouthwash, after you swish, spit it into the toilet bowl and give it a quick swipe - viola, always a clean and smiling toilet :o)


  1. In short, we all wake up with a potty mouth!! This is a good tip, though.

  2. Clever, but too expensive- hmmm....maybe I should use toilet bowl cleanser for mouthwash, no, I don't think so!

  3. Certainly a new idea to me. A minty fresh toilet!I always thought mouthwash was a painful procedure, that burning sensation. I know, it means it's working, but I'd rather do the baking soda... it doesn't burn. Surprised to hear from me? I hope this is an indication that I'll be reading more blogs and blogging more in the coming months! I missed you and your wife... is it a coincidence that there is a toothbrush ad and a toilet cleaner ad on your google ads space, or did you choose them?

  4. Hi Ken,
    Thanks for the tip, but I think I'll have to Scope it out a bit more on my own.

  5. Just don't make the mistake of using toilet water as mouthwash...ewwwww!

  6. Hey Ken,
    Your quips make me chuckle.
    You know I never realise we Canucks said eh until the Mackenzie Brothers came along.
    I see they are on a cartoon now.
    Watching some of the semi-finals of the Calgary Stampede.
    Have a hard time imagining sitting on one of those bucking bulls.
    We will go to Calgary early Monday am 4 am and help a friend bring one of their mobile concessions up to the Red Deer Fair,

  7. I never knew that. I do put Borax powder in the toilets, especially when we leave town for a long period of time. Of course I clean them good first. Good old 20 Mule Team Borax also keeps them sparkling clean.

  8. i like the idea of reusing the mouthwash after you swish!


  9. Hmmm, Interesting!! I like the thought of a minty fresh bowl!! = )


Tell Me What You Think, Don't Make me go Rogue on you :o)
