    Wouldn't a pumice stick scratch the porcelain? I am going to try both the Kool Aid and the Denture cleaners! Since we have a septic system, I do not like using a lot of harsh chemicals like bleach, etc. Thanks!

      April Lippert I've used a pumice stick/stone for over 20yrs and the only thing is, you need to be sure and keep it good and wet, also I wear disposable gloves. Only way I've ever seen it scratch was when I scrubbed really hard without being good and wet :)

    a warning about pumice stones from my plumber: they create microscopic abrasions in the ceramic of the bowl which allows places for bacteria and further mineral deposits to grow. It is not a recommended method of cleaning toilets or sinks.

    All these great idea's, makes me just want to run in and start on the toilet. LOL. Two young boys have made a toilet a lot nastier than the ones shown here. But at this point I am willing to try anything. Except the pumice stone, thanks Prsimon.

    I think one of the points on this subject that has not been broached is........... What kind of water???? We have a well, not mains water and I have tried everything up to the strongest stuff in the box stores. Anyone have a similar situation and/or a cure?

    You need to be very careful about mixing chemicals. A teacher in our town died from doing this.

    Pumice works wonders on porcelain. Does not scratch. DO NOT USE on any fiberglass or you will end up with unrepairable scratches!
