How to get rid of stubborn toilet stains


The normal bleach you have in your home can get rid of just about any stains, including the stubborn ones in your toilet bowl. Simply pour half a cup of bleach into the toilet bowl and leave for a few hours before flushing.


Vinegar is a must have in every home and is very effective in getting rid of the lime scale and hard water deposits found in toilet bowls. Simply pour a huge amount of it into the bowl. Leave it that way for one night, and then do the cleaning in the morning.

Borax Powder

Look for this one in any major supermarket’s hardware section. All you need to do is sprinkle some powder directly onto the affected area. Leave it that way for at least 30 minutes then scrub with a toilet brush and then flush. Toilet bowls cleaned with borax powder turn out gleaming white

Pumice stone

It probably would not be your first choice, but it does do the job. It is important to first wet the stone before scrubbing off the stains to avoid scratching the porcelain.

Baking Soda and vinegar

The baking soda on your kitchen shelf is more than a cooking aid; combined with vinegar, it is also an effective toilet cleaner. Empty the water from the toilet bowl by quickly pouring a bucket of water into the bowl. Add a mixture of white vinegar and baking soda until it covers the stain. It works best when allowed to sit through the night.
