    Yes, use a pumice stone. I had my husband round the edges of the 'stone' and it works better against the curve of the toilet bowl.

    The stone isn't for stains, but for the build up of minerals from your water. We're on well and I get a white/clear build up. The stone works fine. :-)

    100 grit wet/dry sanding paper will also work.

    It may take a little longer but it is effective. Usually 2 sheets wild handle the job. I'd suggest you do a decontamination of the bowl with some bleach. The bowl is going to be within inches of your face and you will be breathing.

    I use a product called CLR. It removes the mineral build up that causes the ring. Pour some product directly on the stain and use one of the scrubbing pads made for toilets. This will take care of the build up.

    No, no, no! Don't scrub the enamel with harsh scrubbers! It just scrapes the enamel off for more grit to get in.
    Sno-Bol gets it perfectly clean in one fell swoop! It is the best ever. Not always easy to find, Way-Mart used to carry it but don't now. Public has it and probably others. You just squirt it around the edge and the ring, wait 15 minutes, brush around with the toilet brush a little and it looks brand new! Sometimes takes a second round, but you end up with a spotlessly clean toilet!!! It is amazing!!

    empty water out of bowl section and fill with straight vinegar..let stand overnight or at least several hours...should take it right off.

    Barkeepers Friend. It makes my toilet sparkle.

    I haven't tried this, but I heard pouring in a can of diet cola and baking soda does the trick. It bubbles up and cleans it right up, so I've been told.

    Twice per week and before I go to bed I spray the walls of the bowl with Clorox, it works perfectly.
