Reuse Tea Bags to Clean Your Toilet

by BrightNest
You've probably heard that a hot cup of Earl Gray is good for your body and soothes your soul, but did you know that it can also help you make a greener home? Reusing tea for these common household tasks is a great way to avoid using chemical-based cleaning products (and save some money, while you're at it).
1) Remove toilet stains. To remove ugly stains from the bottom of your toilet bowl, throw a few used tea bags into the toilet and let them sit for several minutes (if your stains are really bad, give it some extra time). When the bags are flushed down the toilet, the stains will go with them!

    What is removing the stains? The tea or the bags? How? I'd be concerned with clogging the toilet.
