Toliets

What type of rags do you use to clean public toliets?
Is it the microfiber or disposable rags?
I would think once used you will need to throw them away.
But what works best for yall?

According to me, It depends on the product used.Some chemicals are directly applied to the toilet bowler and wait for sometime and then, flush it.It cleans the toilet completely.
Some chemicals required sponge rags..So, it totally depends on which chemicals you are using.

Use all-purpose cleaner and rags/paper towels or disposable sanitary wipes to give both the lids a quick but thorough cleaning on both sides.

house cleaning services Sacramento

House cleaning typically involves scrubbing and the toilet bowl is no exception. Toilet bowls stains are often caused by hard water. We have hard water in the Sacramento Valley and it can cause rings in the toilet bowl. This has nothing to do with if or if not the toilet is clean.

We use red micro fiber rags dedicated to toilets alone. We don't use harsh chemicals since our Co. mission is all natural cleaners. We find our clients prefer non dangerous cleaners for health reasons. It's all a matter of choice.

We also use color coded micro fiber towels. One color for restrooms, one for desks and so. Helps to avoid cross contamination.

How to Clean Toilets

There seems to be a lot of misconception on cleaning toilets. Whether using microfiber cloths or paper wipes, you still have to insure you are using a good cleaner and a disinfectant.

Micro Fiber is the way to go! They work wonderfully and exactly what you said the fact they are color coded helps so much!

Ya it depends upon the cleaners you are using. Sometimes we do not need to use rags as we can directly apply some chemicals directly.

We use red microfiber cloths. Microfiber doesn't an excellent job of removing soil, are environmentally friendly and can be purchased in various colors to prevent cross contamination.

Microfiber washing / disinfecting

Thank you for your replies to the Toilet Cleaning question. To those who use Microfiber to actually clean the toilet, how do you launder those towels? Do you disinfect? or just hot water wash w/soap?

I used to use the disinfecting wipes, but that $$ cost adds up but claims to disinfect in 5 minutes and have considered going back to using them. I admit using steam is the fastest but only when restrooms are near to each other.

I cant believe people use micro fiber for toilets. I use paper towels only can't fathom using micro fiber on a dirty toilet we clean some pretty dirty toilets in our commercial buss. Oh well that was just a shock to each his own I guess.
