    You need to pass the water line in the tiolet. Flush, then wait for the bowl to fill up. Pour slowly bleach until it's past the line. Wait a half hour scrub and flush. Aloha!

    de water the toilet. you push it down the drain with the toilet brush, then hit the ring with a pummis stone. it's most likely a lime/calcium build up. the minerals collect as water evaporates from the toilet.

    When they are really bad is when I use the Muriatic Acid with many precautions for safety in place. You have to make sure it is the full strength, not what you usually find in the pool supply section, it is much weaker. Let it sit on the stain for a few and then try scrubbing. It always came out sparkling clean with that.

    I use a pumice stone. You can get one at any hardware store for just a few dollars.

    Pumice stone. A soap making friend of mine told me to rub a pumice stone over the stain. It does not harm the porcelain. It works. I use it all the time.

    Have you tried Efferdent tabs? I understand they work very well to remove stains from the porcelain

    My solution was 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.

    Try downy fabric softener sheets

    Pumice is definitely your answer. Flush the toilet, turn off the tap, scrub the ring with the pumice stone, turn on the tap - voila. Easy and costs very little. Make sure you buy lots of pumice stones because they are sometimes difficult to find.
