    WARNING: look away now if easily disgusted! We moved into a 1950s house with some distinctive charms (ahem). I had no idea what to do about the basement toilet until I read this suggestion. I wanted to stay away from nasty chemicals--and pumice stones,

    You can actually buy citric acid powder which works also. I find it at my local bulk foods store. There is also a product called Lemishine at some grocery stores in the dishwasher soap section that is primarily citric acid that works.

    I agree with Thelma.......I can't live without the Pumie stick, I keep one in every bathroom for cleaning the toilet. Most people don't know what you are talking about when you ask for one but Walmart does carry and you will not regret ever getting one.

    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.
