How To Remove Mold From Your Faucet Troughs

You’re not a good person if you skip the bathroom. I’m just saying. If you want to avoid having your toilet water turned into a slurry of mold over time, here’s a few tips that might help.

How many times have you spent an hour scrubbing the spongy inside of a toilet bowl or tub? You didn’t? I did, every time. But the problem was always the faucet or sink drain. The problem only gets worse when you try using a drain cleaner on that spot. Not a good idea. Instead, I prefer a slightly cheaper solution: the toilet toilet bowl drain cleaner.

The good thing about toilet bowl drain cleaners is that they’re pretty small. One of these will take care of the inside of a to-go cup holder and the inside of the lid of a bowl. A lot of places sell toilet bowl cleaners, but I don’t like buying them, because usually they’re the cheap stuff. I really can’t tell the difference between a 10cent box and a 50cent box.

Most toilet bowl cleaner (THC) solutions contain some kind of oil, which is a little slippery. The stuff used in most toilet bowl cleaners usually has a hard, oil-like consistency. Use with caution, because the hard stuff can do some damage to your carpet if spilled.

I’ve been using this stuff for years. There are some really nice brands, such as the brand I used, but a lot of other ones are cheap and nasty. I don’t want the hard stuff on my carpet, so I use the smaller stuff. You could use anything for the job, but I use an expensive brand that’s made in the USA.¬†

In terms of the amount of product, the THC solution contains only about 0.25 to 0.5 grams. Some stuff comes in little bottles, but a 10 cent box seems like a lot to me. You can also find it at a lot of stores.

When using this stuff on the inside, I have a little plastic funnel attached to a hose. I get the drain cleaner at the hardware store, then scoop out about a cup of the stuff into the funnel. Then, I use spray bottles to put it all in. The nice thing is that the spray bottles have a little spout on the bottom, so you can throw the stuff on the ground, rather than squirting it all in the toilet.

When you’re done, rinse the inside of the toilet bowl area with warm water. Don’t use harsh water; it’s too rough. This stuff is a little tricky to work with, but if you read the label, you should probably follow the instructions, even though it’s labeled “Diluted”.
