Well, we live in the country and have spring water and a septic tank, and our house was vacant for many years before we bought it. Besides which the house was built in the 1800’s and obviously indoor plumbing installed whenever such things became fashionable in TN, 1989 maybe? Just kidding, leftover joke from my Dad cause my mom was from TN. Seriously though there are still outhouses in TN. But we do not have one. Anyway, when we bought this house the toilets looked like they had been here since 1940, and like they had not been cleaned ever. That is what you get when you buy a farm for under $110 grand. You get nasty toilets. Among other things.
Now on a normal day I would just put a gallon of bleach in it and let it soak until the cows come home. But the cows ARE home, and folks here gotta use things and bleach kills the good live stuff in the septic. So when I got the opportunity to try some CLR I did not hesitate. It said on the bottle
So we called the janitor in, AKA daddy, he is good at nasty stuff with strong cleaners. Even though the bathrooms are cleaned daily they were nasty and stained.
The toilets went from this
and it made the soap scummy shower that is so hard to clean from this
a definite improvement.
Since the younger girls won’t be using it daily we will see how it does used weekly with the regular stuff used daily. I will keep you posted. find out what others are tackling here
