While the cleansing solution soaks into the toilet in the bowl, clean the outside of the toilet. Start at the top to prevent dripping on already clean surfaces. Spray the tank, handle, and tank edges with cleaner and wipe down. Next do the outside lid of the toilet. Finally, wipe down the entire outside of the bowl. Start with the sides and front before cleaning the bottom edges of the toilet where it meets the floor.

Wipe the entire seat with a cloth moistened with clean water to remove any traces of bleach or chemicals from the sitting surface.
Clean the Inside of the Toilet Bowl
