Why You Should Clean Your Toilet With Kool-Aid (And Other Cleaning Hacks)

Remove Toilet Bowl Rings

You know those nasty rings you sometimes get around your toilet bowl? Sometimes it seems like no matter how much you scrub, they just don’t go away! Next time, try this odd but effective solution… lemonade-flavored Kool-Aid. Yes, you read that right! Sprinkle the Kool-Aid packet around the toilet bowl and let it sit for a few hours. Then, just scrub it away to reveal a nice, clean bowl! The citric acid in the Kool-Aid breaks down grime and hard water deposits. Plus, your toilet will smell like lemonade. It’s a win-win.

Dry Toilet Brush

Like it or not, most of us have a toilet brush because it really is still the easiest, most efficient way to scrub dowl the toilet bowl. However, the idea of dripping toilet water back into the holder and then letting the brush sit there until you use it again is pretty nasty, don’t you agree? Instead, just place the brush between the bowl and the lid while it drips dry. You can also add a bit of Pine Sol or another cleaner to the toilet brush holder when putting the brush back so it is sanitizing while it sits there, waiting to be used again!
