‘Bleach destroys toilets!’ Remove ‘yellow’ toilet seat stains without chemicals in minutes


Share post:

Yellow stains on a toilet seat are most likely caused by hard water, the type of cleaning products used or an irregular cleaning routine. If you keep them unattended for a long period of time, the stains keep getting nastier and more difficult to deal with. This is why it is important to get rid of the stains on your toilet seat as soon as you encounter them.

Posting on a Facebook cleaning page, one Mrs Hinch fan was short of ideas on how to clean her toilet seat that had been ridden with yellow stains.

Stephanie Britten wrote: “How do I remove yellow staining on the underside of a white toilet seat please?”

Yellow toilet staining is commonplace in homes. No matter how much you clean and how careful you are, those stains can just keep coming back.

Homeowners may assume that the cause is automatically urine staining, and whilst this is a common cause, it isn’t the only one.

Some Mrs Hinch fans were urging their fellow cleaning enthusiasts against using bleach to remove these stains and even claimed that bleach could be the cause of toilet seats yellowing.

Monic Bosworth explained: “It may have been discoloured by bleach.  We were told not to use bleach then flush with the lid down when we bought our new bathroom. If that’s the case, then more bleach will make it worse.”

Glen Powell said: “Bleach destroys toilets and it doesn’t even get rid of the stains, it merely masks it.”

Jean Hillsop added: “Don’t use bleach. I used it on my toilet seat and it made the stains even worse. I had to end up chucking it.”

Bleach is an extremely harsh chemical. For those who use undiluted bleach to clean their toilet seats, they will probably damage their seat beyond repair.

This cleaning product is a very harsh and corrosive chemical. For example, if you have a plastic toilet seat and try to clean it with bleach, homeowners might see more yellow stains due to the bleach eating away at the plastic.

For those who want to use bleach to clean their toilet seat, dilute it with water. Use at least one part bleach to five parts water.

Of course, homeowners could dilute it, even more, to be on the safe side. Also, do not leave the bleach on a plastic toilet seat for more than an hour due to its corrosive nature.
