Step #5: Clean Toilet Flange and Floor
Put on rubber gloves and remove any gunk left behind from the old toilet flange so the new toilet will seat properly. Cleaning the floor under the toilet is a good idea, too.
How to clean toilet flange and floor:
- Clean Toilet Flange: Wear rubber gloves and use a putty knife to remove what’s left of the old wax ring and any other accumulated mess.
- Clean Floor: Use bathroom cleaner and a scrub brush to clean the floor under the toilet.
