Tea has the ability to break down lime scale and remove bad odor

Keeping your toilet bowl perfectly clean with hard water flowing from the pipes is not an easy task. Besides, it has an unpleasant side effect either because of plaque or because of the destruction of enamel by aggressive chemical cleaning agents. Thus, the sanitary device can start to smell unpleasant.

Unexpected means to combat both problems can be ordinary tea bags. OBOZREVATEL shares how to use them to achieve the best results.

First of all, we note that it is better to use black tea. It has more acidity, which is important when you need to destroy limescale. Tea stains are easily removed by simple friction, so you should not worry about them. In addition, black tea has pronounced deodorizing properties, so it will remove unpleasant odor well.

To harness the power of this remedy, put a few wet tea bags on the dirty spot in the toilet bowl so that they cover the entire area of the stain. Leave them to act for at least 30 minutes, several hours or overnight. After keeping the sachets on the stain, remove them and give the spot a good scrubbing with a brush. Do not flush the sachets down the drain, but throw them in the trash.

If the stain has not completely rubbed off, you can try to complete the cleaning with baking soda and vinegar. Rinse off the water and sprinkle the wet bowl with baking soda, paying more attention to the stains. Leave the remedy for 15 minutes. After that, spray it with vinegar and let the substances interact. When the foaming stops, wipe the toilet bowl with a toilet brush and rinse it well.
