How To Remove Toilet Bowl Stains

(photo credit)
I like to make everything in my house sparkling clean - including my toilet!   Lime deposits from water can cause brown rings in your toilet bowl that are extremely difficult to remove, and embarrassing to leave.  Use the easy recipe below to get rid of these unsightly stains!

The 3 things you need:
  • Borax
  • Vinegar
  • Sand Paper


  1. Hmm. . . love this! I use a pumice bar and that works well too instead of the sandpaper. Then it can get wet if needed.

  2. Great idea. Thankfully, we have pretty soft water here, but my parents are out in the country with well water and this is a big problem!

    Thanks for linking up at Thrifty Thursday! :)

  3. Ooh, I am so going to try this...our toilet bowl is quite ugly from the city water. Would you recommend using a really fine grit sandpaper (like 100 or above?) Thanks also for linking up at our Thrifty Thursday!

  4. The sandpaper I used was 60 coarse and it worked well. I had to use about 3 small sheets and a lot of muscles! :) Thank you Anna and Jen for hosting!!!

  5. So last week our well ran dry. It happens with some frequency as their seems to be a leak somewhere in the underground piping that they just can't locate. When the water was restored this time, it wasn' clear. We aren't sure what is in it (we aren't currently drinking it!) but it stained the toilets. This is truly very timely information...I can't stand how it looks! Thanks, Jill!
