    How can you stop a toilet tank from sweating?

    A:

    Stop a toilet from sweating by decreasing the humidity in the bathroom or by increasing the water temperature in the tank. Water from warm, humid air condenses when it comes in contact with a cold tank. While toilet tank insulation kits claim to help, they are often ineffective.

    What is toilet tank cleaner?

    A:

    Toilet tank cleaner is a solution deposited into the tank of the toilet, as opposed to the bowl. It is used to remove the build up of rust, calcium and hard water that forms over time inside the tank. This process also helps a toilet tank last longer, and look and smell cleaner.
