I used Lysol toilet bowl cleaner, and some of the liquid got on the toilet seat, leaving a blue stain. The seat is injection molded plastic. Any ideas about how to remove this stain? Thanks.
I had a similar thing happen with dye from clothes when I put a load of freshly washed (but not dry) clothes on top of the closed toilet lid. This is what I did and it worked.
Pour some straight bleach onto a large rag to saturate. Lay the saturated rag over the stain and then cover with a plastic bag to keep the fumes and bleaching power in. Leave it for about an hour and then check on it.
how about a Magic Eraser they have removed many stains for us from a magic marker to koolaid
Thank you all!! The stains are mostly gone (there's a little one that resists to go)
I tried a combination of two tips: bleach and magic eraser. (BTW, I had tried magic eraser alone and bleach alone, and they didn't work)
Maybe peroxide will take the stain off the toilet seat. I use it instead of bleach in doing laundry & etc. It's much cheaper. It will also bleach your teeth.
Since we are sharing thrifty ideas..here's a way to avoid that in the future. I use either Ajax or Comet, whichever I have, to clean my toilet bowls.
I have used baking soda on a kitchen counter that got some on it and it worked like a charm just mix a paste with water and leave it for a day and it pulled it right out. I came here because it just happened to my tub. The hubby thought it was good to use. Sigh. I have no baking soda... hopefully it will work in the tub.
