    Before, such an action seemed absurdly stupid.


    Probably, many have seen how the owners of the house used to pour salt into the toilet bowl. Such a method seems absurd and stupid, but in fact it makes sense. You can pour salt into the toilet in order to remove the unpleasant smell from it. This is very relevant if the old pipes have not yet been replaced in the house. As it turned out, salt acts as a disinfectant, able to absorb fat and remove moisture. Salt also removes unpleasant odors, informs Ukr.Media.

    If the toilet is spreading stench through old pipes, such cleaning should be carried out every day for a week. First, a glass of salt, and then once a month it will be enough to pour just one spoonful. First, salt should be poured with boiling water, let it stand for fifteen minutes, and then drain the water. It can also be poured into the sink if it is clogged. However, salt cannot be poured into faience and porcelain sanitary ware, because it must be poured with very hot water, and this sanitary ware does not like high temperatures.
