This Is What Happens When You Put Vinegar In Your Toilet
White vinegar should be at the top of your list when you're looking for a natural cleaning powerhouse, free of harsh fumes and skin irritants. Its acidity can not only cut through grime and eliminate stains, but it kills germs, bacteria, and mold on contact as well.
This makes it a great alternative for cleaning your toilet bowl and tank — to do this pour a generous glug of vinegar, followed by a heavy sprinkling of baking soda, into the bowl. While the mixture is bubbling up, scrub the bowl (get under the rim, too), and let it soak for 30 minutes before flushing.
Additionally, toilet tanks can harbor rust, mold, mildew, and bacteria, which can cause unpleasant odors and reduce toilet longevity. Pour white vinegar into the tank, stopping at least an inch below the top rim, and let it sit for 12 hours. Give the toilet a couple of flushes, turn off the toilet's water valve to drain it, and scrub with a coarse sponge.
