Full Answer

Toilet bolts and other screws may be covered in rust, making them difficult to remove. Individuals should apply penetrating oil to any rust-covered screws or bolts to make them easier to remove. Once removing the bolt, individuals should be very careful. Applying too much might cause the wrench to slip from the bolt and to strike the toilet instead, causing cracks in its surface.
