How do I remove stains from a toilet bowl?


We have 4 toilets that are all on great shape...except for the water rings in each tank. Hoping there is a simple solution so we don't have to replace all of them. Thank you!

    Hello Kim,

    I have tried many of the tips and tricks to include koolaid and many commercial cleaners =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 collects or just a water ring.

    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. I've used it on my new 2015 toilets- it works. Im sure it will solve your situation. I hope this helps!
