    Hello Shirley,


    I have tried many of the suggested home remedy tips and tricks to include koolaid and they have failed.


    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.



    Additional information can be found here. Hope this helps.

    Hi there, I have not found a stain that the works toilet bowl cleaner cannot get out and I rent so there have been some bad ones that I had to let soak for about an hour. Buy the regular one and not the one that says basic on it as it is too weak.

    Hi Shirley,

    Ours get orange-pink rings, it seems like no matter how often I clean them. I had success using a pumice stick - I got them at Walmart. It's not fun, but no cleaning products worked. It really wasn't too bad and they still look good for the last 3 months since I did it. I have been using a toilet brush and Comet every day to try and keep the rings away.

    Our Go-To has always been plain old vinegar. Use 2 cups vinegar & let it sit then flush. Follow up by putting vinegar in the toilet 🚽 tank. It will dispense vinegar with every flush.
