tough toilet stains

The one place you can be certain your guests will see when they visit your home is your bathroom. And nothing can leave a lasting impression quite like a stained toilet.

You’ve tried using all the normal toilet cleaning products, though, and those stains just won’t go! Now what?

We’ve put together this guide to show you how to remove tough toilet stains with things you already have in your house, so make sure you keep reading below!

Pro Tip: Use a Scrub Brush

You probably have everything you need to remove those tough toilet stains in your house already… except for a scrub brush.

While you can try using a normal toilet brush to wash away the stains, the bristles might not be strong enough to get rid of them completely.

A scrub brush, on the other hand, is sturdier. If you don’t have a scrub brush lying around your house, it’s worth heading to the store to pick one up before you get started. It will make your job a lot easier (and a lot more effective) later.

Cleaning Tough Toilet Stains With Vinegar and Baking Soda

Baking soda and vinegar will eat away at hard water stains, build-ups of calcium, rust stains, and more. And the best part is, you just have to let it sit. No back-breaking scrubbing required.

Here is what you’ll need:

  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Cup measure

Start by pouring a cup of baking soda into your toilet bowl (you can dump it straight in the water). Then pour two cups of vinegar around the lip of the toilet bowl. When it reaches the baking soda, it will create a bubbling creation, which is normal.

This is where the magic happens.

After you let it sit for 30 minutes, come back with your scrub brush and give the toilet a once-over. The stains should lift easily, and you shouldn’t have to put a lot of effort into it.

Coco-Cola Toilet Bowl Cleaning

If you don’t have baking soda and vinegar, you can also clean a stained toilet with a few bottles of Coco-Cola. This method is a bit more involved, though, so you’ll want to do a bit more planning before you try it.

For example, you’ll need to empty all the water out of the toilet bowl. You can do this by turning off the water and then flushing your toilet.

Next, fill up the toilet bowl with Coco-Cola and let it sit as long as possible. If you can, leave it in your toilet overnight. In the morning, flush the soda out of your toilet and scrub any remaining stains away with your brush.
