    pumice stone. Make sure it is wet while using it.

    Try the Lysol toilet bowl clean in a black squirt bottle and Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It's the only thing that worked on mine and I even tried bleach & pumice stone.

    Honestly...just try pouring in straight bleach and see if that works!

    I have used a pumice stone for a lot of tough stains in the toilet.

    Pumice stone. I clean for a living and would be lost without the pumice stone. And it doesn't hurt the environment, unlike bleach.

    I use drywall screen and a spray cleaner. It totally works and doesn’t scratch. Bleach doesn’t work.

    Those blue cleaners don't work only stain the bowl blue. Waste of money. Try The Works bowl cleaner leaving it on for a while then scrubbing.

    I have a blue ring in one toilet and a lot more blue in a second toilet. I don't know why I have the blue. I tried everything, even muriatic acid. No one I've talked to about it has ever heard of blue in a toilet. If I put about 2 cups of bleach in the worst one, and leave it at least 5-6 hours, it does come out. Not much scrubbing at all. When you put the bleach in do it slowly so it doesn't simply go down the drain. The blue will come back but it takes a few weeks. I would love to know what causes it. We've lived here for almost 42 years and it's only been around the last 6 or 7 years that I've had the problem. I also have well water, and have a softener. Good luck!!

  • A pumice store worked for us to remove the ring.

    I used Bar Keepers Friend is a dry powder cookware scrub similar to comet.

    It’s great on copper pan bottoms & since the blue ring is caused by copper in the water, I tried it with a soft scrub sponge (I didn’t have a pumice stone). The blue ring in my toilet is gone!

    This product is great on pan bottoms that have a heavy build up of grease when used with a chain mail cast iron scrubber.

    It’s also wonderful for stainless steel sinks & appliances. Use a microfiber towel to dry & everything looks brand new !

    Another Really fantastic product is lime away for hard water & rust stains.

    Then there’s Zep tile & grout cleaner, saved me

    $ 2,000.00 to do my 2 bathrooms & floor tiles myself !
