Have an unsightly toilet bowl? Hard-water stains, lime, and minerals can leave your commode not looking so fresh — even after serious scrubbing. We found this cleaning suggestion on Pinterest and had to give it a try. But does pouring a bit of a popular beverage in your toilet bowl really work? We put it to the test to find out.
- Start by giving your toilet bowl a quick scrub, and then pour a 16-ounce bottle of cola in the bowl. Let it sit for an hour.
- Cola is acidic and contains phosphoric acid, which breaks down stains and buildup, leaving a sparkling clean toilet bowl. After another quick scrub and a flush, we couldn't believe how clean our commode was — no harsh chemicals or scrubbing involved!
- This cleaning method is safe to use as often as needed and can be finished with a spritz of your favorite air freshener for a really fabulously clean bathroom.
