Our cleaning lady used an SOS pad inside the toilet, and now there are gray stains! I let it soak twice with toilet bowl cleaner and scrubbed, and it helped a little, but is still there. What can I do to remove the stains? It's grayish and you can see where she was scrubbing. Any help is appreciated!

Have you tried the Mr Clean Magic Eraser? Certainly worth a try.

I would try bicarb soda on a damp cloth or magic eraser.

Are you sure that it's stained and not the enamal scratched off by using the SOS pad.

You might try a pumice stone for toilets. Wal*Mart sells them for less than $2.00. Good luck!

I decided to clean the bathtub the other day as there was an ugly ring. I thought that an SOS pad would do the trick, wrong! There are faint grey/black marks everywhere the pad touched the tub. Any ideas on how to get rid of this? I tried bleach, ammonia and comet without success.

baking soda paste should do the trick.. use a damp cloth and sprinkle some baking soda on it and rub a small area at a time... then rinse.


Baking soda will help with that ring around the tub too.

Try Mr. Clean`s Magic Eraser. I had a few black marks in a bathroom sink...tried the Magic Eraser and it worked. Good luck!

I tried the Eraser and the baking soda without much luck. Granted, my tub was shinning but the grey marks were still visible. In a last ditch effort, I tried Fantastik toilet boil cleaner... left it on for a few seconds and scrubbed/ rinsed. Worked like a charm!

A copper Brillo pad will quickly remove steel wool marks from tile surfaces.
