Cleaning a Toilet Bowl Ring

We have two toilets in the house. The first one on the line is a standard toilet made by Kohler (very recently installed). The second is an American Standard and is several years old. The Kohler has a ring at the water line that we have yet to get it clean, but the second one, there is no ring. What gives?

I have used Bar Keepers Friend (powder cleanser) or Pumice Stone. I buy both from Wal Mart. With the cleanser make sure you buy the powder and not the liguid. With the Pumice Stone make sure you keep it wet while you are scrubbing or it can scratch your toilet. Last but, not least vinegar is great too. Soak paper towels with the vinegar lay on top of the ring close lid and let sit as long as possible. Like 4 hours and the ring should brush off.

Warning! Don't use vinegar and Bar Keepers Friend together on Chrome, it will discolor horribly.

I can only imagine that what's going on with your two toilets is the same thing people complain daily about: The quality of products produced are sub-standard to those manufactured several years ago.


About that ring: The only thing that has ever helped me is to pour a can of Coke or Pepsi down into the toilet. Wait about 20 minutes and hit it with the toilet brush and mild detergent. Mine come clean every time. Good Luck!
