Removing Tobacco Stains from a Toilet Bowl

How can I remove chewing tobacco stains from a toilet bowl? The stains are very strong and a deep dark brown. I have tried a variety of toilet cleaners, nothing worked.

Try a wet pumice stone and rub very gently.

Make a paste of salt, baking soda and vinegar (1/4 cup salt, 1/2 cup soda and 1/4 to 1/2 cup of vinegar--mix salt and soda and add vinegar until it becomes like toothpaste--you may NOT need all of it.

Use a sponge and rub it on the stains, let it soak as long as you can--at least an hour, then flush. You may need to repeat a few times. If it still doesn't work after the second time, add a few squirts of Tide or Dawn dish soap to the vinegar and try one more time.

I don't know if it will work on that but...I had a toilet that was terribly stained permanent with the usual stains a toilet gets and no ordinary toilet bowl cleaner ever worked to get rid of the stains. I thought, I clean the toilet all the time, I guess it's just going to be this color forever. Then I used a not so ordinary toilet bowl cleaner...Clorox Toilet Bowl Cleaner with Bleach, I let it set for 10 minutes and scrubbed with a scrub brush...but I didn't need to hardly scrub because it all came off.

The bowl was white and looked new. I have been using it ever since and still have not had to scrub any stains...the only downside is the smell of a swimming pool for a while and the need to use a lot of the cleaner because it's very watery. Don't use this cleaner if you just flushed. I hope this helps!

When I had rental property (my family did the clean-up) these types of stains were always a problem.
Of course no one really wanted to be the one doing the cleaning so we took a different approach.
I poured white vinegar into the bowl, used a toilet bowl brush to swish it around, especially under the rim, and just left it for several hours. I would then add more vinegar and do the same thing.
Clean up usually took several days (part time) so, if possible, we did not flush this particular toilet over that time period but continued to add fresh vinegar.

Sometimes we would flush the commode because the water would be almost black and we needed to see how well the vinegar was doing.

This always worked for me and now my sons (who are single and not particularly fond of cleaning their commodes) use some white vinegar almost every night.
Usually keeps everything clean without much extra effort.
