How to Clean That Stubborn Toilet Bowl Ring for .25 Cents

1 Material
Chemical free trick to clean that nasty toilet bowl ring.
After attempting to clean with Comet and Liquid toilet bowl cleaner I still had this nasty hard water build up scuzzy ring.
This is the AFTER picture :)
The lemon Koolaid works in the dishwasher too for removing the soap scum build up from the insides. Just put in in place of the soap and run an empty washer on it's regular cycle. The before and after will amaze you!
I know this looks nasty, but remember it's just Koolaid :)

    Based on comments it appears citric acid is key ingredient. So could I just use lemon juice?

    The active ingredient in Kool-aid is citric acid which you can buy by itself. it's used in many foods and cleaning products. It's just the natural acid found in citrus, just concentrated. Remember, Kool-Aid is drunk diluted with water.


    I’m glad I stop drinking cool aid at an early age. That’s a good idea for the toilet though.🤷🏾‍♀️
