A mother of three has shocked hundreds on social media after sharing images of her ‘blown up’ toilet – but has not explained how the incident happened.
Sarah posted images of the aftermath to the Australian Facebook group ‘Mums Who Clean’ to seek advice on cleaning up the damaged area.
Photos show that the toilet bowl has been completely blown to pieces and scattered across the floor, rendering it unusable.
The wall, toilet and floor were blackened by the impact and a fire-related incident is believed to have taken place.

Others online seemed concerned and asked what caused the incident. Unfortunately the toilet needs to be replaced and the walls probably need to be painted
“Soooo our house had a little incident. Do you have any tips for removing the soot/smoke from the walls without needing a full paint job?’ Sarah captioned the message.
“Obviously the toilet is being replaced, but I’m not trying to demolish the whole bathroom.”
Others online seemed concerned and asked what caused the incident.
‘How did this happen? As an aside, your insurance can help arrange the cleaning,” one person commented.
A firefighter also offered her help regarding the damage to the walls, saying: ‘If it’s not just wiped off with sugar soap, which I can guarantee it won’t, you’ll have to repaint as the heat from the fire will have. the paint actually burned.’
Another person said, ‘Insurance must cover and there is a possibility that the entire wall will need to be re-gybrocked as the smell and residue are carcinogenic.’
A few others have recommended Bunnings Warehouse’s Tricleanium All Purpose Cleaner.
A third said: ‘There is a special cleaner for ‘fire’ damaged walls, call a cleaning service. Don’t use anything on it beforehand, otherwise you won’t get the stain and smell out and you’ll have to replace drywall as well.”
The update will likely cost hundreds of dollars to restore the toilet to working order.
