Procedure for Toilet Cleaning

Recommended Supplies and Cleaning Equipment:

EPA Registered Cleaner/Disinfectant

Acid Bowl Cleaner

Wiping Material (Rags, Paper Towels, Sponge, Etc.)

Sprayer Trigger (labeled) Pump-Up, Aerosol, Foam, etc.

Bowl Brush or Swab

Rubber Gloves


The need of an acid bowl cleaner is determined by the hardness of the water in your area. The routine use of an acid bowl cleaner is NOT recommended unless hard water deposits are present or where, as a result of not cleaning on a routine basis, a build-up results.

You may only need to use an acid bowl cleaner once a week, once a month or perhaps, in some areas, once every other day. Try a 1 in 5 method first; using an acid bowl cleaner one (1) day out of five (5) and using an EPA registered cleaner/disinfectant four (4) days out of five (5). Increase or decrease depending on your results.

Recommended Method:

As in all cleaning procedures, the first step is to gather the recommended cleaning equipment and supplies together and bring to the area to be cleaned.

EPA Registered Cleaner/Disinfectant

Wear gloves and any other protective cleaning equipment that is recommended by the manufacturer or your facility. Check with your supervisor.

Flush toilet. Force the water past the toilet trap. If bowl cleaner is needed, dispense and let stand for a few minutes. If bowl cleaner is used, be sure that it is rinsed thoroughly with water before using any other chemical for cleaning or disinfecting. Mixing bowl cleaner with any other chemical can be extremely dangerous or fatal.

If no bowl cleaner is needed, use the EPA registered cleaner/disinfectant to spray the entire toilet.

Wash outside of toilet with the EPA registered cleaner/disinfectant. Start with the seat, top and bottom. Include adjoining pipes, hinges and entire base of the bowl. Check for loose bolts.

Wash inside of toilet with bowl brush or swab. Flush to rinse. Then dry outside, seat and rim of toilet.

Be sure to inspect your work and correct any steps you might have missed.

Alternate Method: Acid Bowl Cleaner

Follow the same procedure as EPA registered Cleaner/Disinfectant.

Allow time to clean up and return the cleaning equipment to the storage area.

Finally, when you are finished, wash hands and dry thoroughly.
