What to do about a toilet hard water stain?

I have a bad hard stain ring in my toilets (despite having a water softener system). Would this work on those, or does someone have a solution? I have tried so many options!

    Hi Sharon. I'm Cindy. In between your regular cleaning, try dropping a couple tablets of Polident denture cleaner into the tank of your toilets. It works best over night. Best of luck to you.

    Hello Sharon.


    My solution is the pumice stick. This is excellent way to remove stains and rings in the toilet. When commercial toilet cleaners fail -this is my go to. Great for thick crusted calcium mineral build up that the toilet waterbowl collcts.

    They are found at my local Walmart for less than two dollars -good for multiple uses. Be sure to follow the use instructions, soaking the pumice stone in water for a few minutes. While the stone is soaking, grab your toilet brush and splash water up around the ring. Note: It’s very important to keep both the stone and the surface wet while cleaning to avoid scratching your porcelain.

    Hello, I have always used the works toilet bowl cleaner but not the one that say basic. Get the regular one. Squirt around the bowl, let it set for about 15 minutes and then brush. I have not found a stain in a toilet that it cannot get out. If it is really bad you might have to do it a couple of times.
