Toilet bowls are one household item that is used every single day, which adds up to plenty of stains that can be challenging to remove. Although some of the stains can be easily washed away, some of the most difficult stains to remove are caused by mineral deposits from water sitting in the toilet. The removal of this type of stain requires stronger cleaning methods. The stains need to be scrubbed off using a safe method that will not harm the toilet bowl surface. Here is how to clean toilet bowl stains effectively.

Detailed Step By Step Instructions

The easiest way to clean a dirty toilet bowl is to empty out the water before cleaning. It is simple to empty the water out of the bowl. Turn off the water and then keep flushing the toiled until it no longer fills up with water after it is flushed.

Before cleaning the toilet bowl, you should put on a pair of rubber gloves to protect your hands from germs and the cleaning products that you are using.

"The Works" cleaning product is sold at most stores that sell toilet cleaning products. Begin by applying the cleaning product around the whole toilet bowl. Next, use a pumice stone to scrub stains away. It will take a bit of effort to scrub but the pumice stone will do a fantastic job of removing any stains.

If you do not have a pumice stone then you can use a piece of wet/dry sandpaper, which also works well. A pumice stone or sandpaper will not damage the surface of the toilet. If you notice that the surface of the bowl is becoming scratched during the cleaning process you may be using the wrong type of products.

Continue scrubbing the toilet bowl until all of the stains are gone.

Once you are finished, remember to turn the water on again, filling up the toilet tank and sparkling clean bowl with water so it is ready for use again.
