How do I get hard to remove ring stains out of a toilet bowl?


Not sure if these stains are rust, iron or other. Have tried CLR, lime away, iron out. None have worked.

  • I just love my Pumie, which you can get off of Amazon!

  • Walmart carries a product called 'Scouring Stick'. It's a pumice stone and works well.

    Hello Lynne,

    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.

      Hadn't thought of Magic Eraser for this even though I use it for other cleaning purposes. Thanks 😊😊
