I'm a cleaning expert and here's why you don't need to scrub your toilet | The Sun

A CLEANING expert has revealed why you don't need to be on your hands and knees scrubbing your toilet.

While you may think it helps keep it clean, it can actually cause damage.

If you do have limescale build up in your toilet or bathroom you may be tempted to try and scrub it away.

But Howard Moss, CEO at Astonish told the Express that delicate and easy to scratch surfaces shouldn't be scrubbed with abrasive cleaners as it may cause damage.

He added: “We recommend using tough cleaning products that do the job for you, meaning minimal physical effort is required and surfaces won’t get damaged.” 

Limescale can appear as a chalky white residue on wet surfaces but in toilets can appear brown because of the the mineral deposits in the toilet such as iron, calcium, magnesium and lime.

To remove the brown marks you need a targeted cleaner like Astonish's Toilet Bowl Fizz & Fresh Tabs, which come in a variety of fragrances.

The package costs £2.49 on Astonish's website and comes with eight tablets that work to clean away limescale.

The cleaning expert said: "Simply drop the tab into the bowl and allow the deep cleaning foam action to do its job, no scrubbing required."

And customers who have bought the tabs have been left seriously impressed by its cleaning skills.
