However, to maintain a clean, bacteria-free toilet, you should try to repeat the cleaning process once every week.

It obviously depends on how much you use your cleaner or your plunger; yet, if you use it on a regular or a semi-regular basis, once a week would be an appropriate rate.

Last, please bare in mind that you cannot clean your brush or your plunger without cleaning the holder, as well. It’s like showering then working out.
