Vinegar, baking soda or bleach

Vinegar is one of the products that almost any household would have either in their kitchen or for cleaning. Stains that are usually caused by alkaline deposits can be removed by emptying three cups of vinegar into the pot and scrubbing the bowl with a toilet brush. To up the effectiveness, add a sprinkle of baking soda on a toilet-bowl brush and scour any remaining stained areas. Vinegar also prevents future stains from occurring. You can prevent toilet rings from forming by pouring two cups of white vinegar in the toilet once a month.

Alternatively, you can also try bleach. Just don’t get them on your hands or clothing.

Trisodium phosphate

Trisodium phosphate is a heavy-duty cleaning powder that can be found at your local store and is also used by many house cleaning services. It is effective in removing tough toilet stains. Start by measuring one gallon of warm water with one tablespoon of trisodium phosphate. Mix well. Use a rag and soak it in the solution. Use the soaked cloth to rub on the stains until they start to fade. Check the directions given by the manufacturer. Make sure to wear gloves throughout the cleaning process.

Borax powder

Borax is often used in detergents, cosmetics and enamel glazes. However, borax powder sold at stores is also effective in removing toilet stains. Start by flushing the toilet after shutting off the water supply to the tank. When the toilet is empty, sprinkle the powder directly onto the stains and scrub the bowl using a toilet brush. Leave to sit for approximately 30 minutes while it does its magic. Turn on the water supply again and flush the toilet. For very tough stains, you could also mix the borax powder with lemon juice until it becomes a paste. Then, use it the same way as just the borax powder but allow to sit for two hours instead.

Pumice stone

If everything else won’t work, try a pumice stone together with a toothbrush. Keep one end of the pumice damp and rub the stone carefully across toilet rings as to not scratch or damage the toilet bowl. Once pumice begins to build up on the sides of the toilet bowl, use a toothbrush to gently rub all deposits away.
