I used Lysol in my toilet bowl and it dyed my bowl. How do I get this out?

I suspect the lysol is dying some lime deposit that is in the toilet. You may want to try some acid to remove this; or just go with the bleach as Klavier suggested. But don't combine cleaners.

Over a 10-14 day period, blue/purple stains develop in the bottom of our toilet bowl. The tank is crystal clear. They do not form in our other toilet. We have soft water. Where are the stains coming from and how can we prevent them from forming?
Here is a possiblity, my mother takes medicine for urinary infection and so forth, the pills, leave blue residue, so if other folks are using your toilet, then maybe. If not cleaned normally, there will be lot of blue.
Same thing happening in one of our toilets (Kohler, about ten years old). Tank is clear. No blue flapper or gaskets. I thought maybe copper piping, but it's only appearing in the bowel and not in the tank.
For years I suffered with the blue stain in the toilet bowl. I went online at different times seeking a solution that would remove the stain but nothing worked. Recently I was in a store looking for a drop in to the water tank and found a 4 pack of Clorox Automatic Toilet Bowl Cleaner. Considering how long I've been trying different methods with no success I wasn't holding out hope. To my utter surprise I began to notice the blue was not as pronounced after a week or so and after a month the ring is completely gone. My bowl is pure white once again. I hope it works for you.
