How do you clean and store a plunger? Drop the rubber end of the plunger in the toilet bowl and let is soak in the vinegar-water mixture for a few minutes. Then, swirl the plunger around in the water. Flush several times to let running water rinse the plunger. Let the plunger dry and then store it away.

How often should I clean my plunger? It’s not exactly a cleaning tool, but your plunger definitely needs the proper attention considering the messes it gets itself into—you want to clean it thoroughly every time it’s used. You can start off by flushing the toilet and using the running water to give the plunger a first rinse. Then, do a bleach soak.
Where should I store my plunger? Toilet brushes and plungers are items best kept close to where they’re used. Not every bathroom has a nearby under-sink cabinet with room to stash this stuff—and not everyone would want to store these items in such a cabinet, anyway.
