No matter how clean your toilet is, keeping the lid down at home makes it feel cleaner and the air is a lot fresher. After preparing a simple scrub with baking soda and vinegar in equal parts (I use about ½ a cup of each, let it sit for 30 or 40 minutes in the toilet, and then scrub well) close the lid. This strengthens positive vibes in the bathroom.
This is actually more for your mental clarity. Nobody wants to live in a dusty house. It’s definitely unhygienic either.. By stimulating metal elemental energy, you can reach some sort of a clearer mental state. Microfiber cloths can be helpful and eco-friendly to dust well!
