Urine stains on a toilet seat can be a mess and can occur for various reasons. One reason is that small boys learning to use the toilet may miss on occasion. It is important to clean urine stains as soon as possible. You can use bathroom cleaning products to assist in cleaning the grime from the seat. Clean the seat within a couple of days for easy removal. More scrubbing may be required if the urine remains on the seat for a long time.

  1. 1

    Purchase a bathroom cleaner, such as Clorox Clean-Up, WD-40 X-14 Mold & Mildew Stain Remover or Comet Cleaner with Bleach. Use a bathroom cleaning product that has colour-safe bleach, especially if your toilet seat is not white.

  2. 2

    Spray the seat thoroughly. This may take four or five squirts of the product. Let the cleaner soak in for about 15 minutes.

  3. 3

    Use a scrub brush to scour the toilet seat. Scrub the area fiercely in a circular motion around the seat.

  4. 4

    Spray another layer of the bathroom-cleaning product. Scour again.

  5. 5

    Damp a cloth with warm water and wipe the toilet seat completely. This will remove all of the cleaning chemicals.

  6. 6

    Towel-dry the seat. Wipe off any water or cleaner that seeped over the side of the seat.

Tips and warnings

  • For added protection to your hands and eyes, open a window and wear gloves and goggles.
