Cleaning mineral deposits in toilet

Step 1
Fill a spray bottle with distilled white vinegar. Spray the calcification liberally. Let the vinegar sit on the deposits for 30 minutes.

Step 2
Scrub the calcification with a stiff-bristled nylon toilet brush. If this removes the deposits, turn the water to the toilet back on and flush the toilet to rinse away the vinegar. Alternatively, if scrubbing doesn't remove all the calcification, scrub off as much as possible, then rinse the brush in the sink.

Step 3
Pour baking soda onto the toilet brush. Scrub the calcification with the baking soda. If this removes the deposits, turn the water back on and flush away the residue. If not, rinse the brush and set it aside.

Step 4
Put on rubber gloves to protect your hands. Use a pumice stone to manually rub the calcification off the surfaces. When all the deposits are gone, turn the water back on and flush the toilet to rinse it.
