    I've been surprised how "Exit Mould" can shift something that sounds similar. Also, someone once told me a house they rented had a problem like that and they plungered the water out of the bowl and used caustic soda to completely remove stains on old toilet porcelain. you'd need to be careful with both of those products.

    Have you tried using a pumice stone?

    I use a pumice stone as well. You can find then at your local hardware store.. Just glove up and rub the stone over the hard water stain. It also works well on sinks and bath tubs.

    Try putting coca cola down the toilet and leaving it for a couple of hours , surprisingly effective !

    Pumice ston, don't use toilet cleaner with blue/green coloring in future. I switched to straight bleach for cleaning.

    Denture Soaking Tablets. Use a few packets the 1st time & let it sit a few hours to overnight. Flush 2ce & repeat if necessary. :)

    Paper towels soaked in vinegar - make sure to wear rubber gloves - leave soaked paper towels tucked in around rim for at least an hour - don't flush paper towels down toilet....

    There is a wire mesh charcoal impregnated screen in my grocery of Wal-Mart store. I wear rubber gloves and use it to scrub the toilet. We have heavy minerals in our well water and it leaves mineral ring in our toilet. It takes off all the minerals that cause the ring and leaves my porcelain sparkling.

    I have not tried this but someone said to turn the water off and flush to get remaining water out. Fill with Coke until you are above the mineral ring. Let sit overnight. Let me know if it works.

    PS: Someone also told me not to use bleach as it will eat up the wax ring under the toilet base.
