    WD-40 is the best and easiest way I have found. I had rust stains in a toilet and it worked like a charm. Just spray it on before, scrub with a scrub budand spray some on after for waterproofing. Hope this helps!

      When I lived in Michigan I had rust in my water. It would leave everything rusty. BarKeepers Friend is the best for any mineral deposit. Just used it on my glasses. Put it on as a paste and let it dry for a couple of hours. Then rinse!

    An 20/80 mixture of muriatic acid to water will work. Wear proper protective gear when using.

    I have had a lot of success with BarKeeper's Friend. It will clean about anything. You can find it in stores beside the cleansers like comet, etc.

    I've found that dabbing a little bit of toilet bowl cleaner w/bleach and letting it sit about 30 min to an hour takes it away.

    Remove Stain Using Vinegar

    Take some paper towels or cleaning rags and immerse them in vinger. Now, take out the saturated towel and put it over the stain. Let the towels sit on the stain for around 10 to 15 minutes and follow it by wiping the area clean.
