Stubborn Toilet Stain?

I have a brown stain at the bottom of a toilet (it looks like someone had not flushed) that I cannot get it off with a regular brush and Ajax. Can any one tell me how to remove this stain?

Pour 1 cup of vinegar into the toilet bowl. Swish the solution around with your toilet brush and leave to sit for a minute. Add about 1 cup of baking soda and then add another 1-2 cups of vinegar. The solution should fizz and create a bubbly concoction. Leave to sit for about 5 minutes, and then scrub the toilet making sure the solution reaches all the stains in the toilet.

You may have to carefully rub with a pumice stone.

This problem is not pleasant to deal with so once it is clean you can pour a small amount of vinegar in the bowl every few days (or more often if water is bad) and that will keep the stain from building up.

Attosa has a very good suggestion.

One little known way to clean away this ugly stain is with WD-40. Just spray a SMALL amount in the bowl and swish around with your toilet brush.

But there are other ways in case you want to try something else.

Normally brown toilet bowl stains are caused by hard water and a lime buildup. The minerals build up in your toilet bowl and leave a stain. The dirt is picked up in the stain. The stain slowly builds up layers and layers on the inside or your toilet bowl.

In order to get rid of these stains you will need muriatic acid. However, this is very dangerous and shouldn't be used at all. The good news is that CLR (calcium-lime-rust) cleaner or Lime-A-Way will do the trick for you. If you are looking for a cheaper solution try using vinegar and coke in your toilet. This will eat away the lime buildup in the toilet bowl.

the only way i was able to remove a stain of that sort was with a pumice stone. I tried every other product out there and in the end the only thing that would take was getting my arm all up in there and rubbing away.

Hard work and sort of icky, but if you clean the toilet bowl first and turn off the water & wear gloves it shoudl come off but it does take like 10 - 20 minutes depending on the stain variety

I ended up replacing a toilet due to brown stain. It would not come off at all. After quizzing my tenant, she finally told me she had poured brown hair dye in it. Also I had to replace the flooring in that room. Had I known first what I was dealing with, it would have saved me a lot of time and money. So, if you can narrow down the stain and the cause if it, that helps you know how or if it can be cleaned.

Drop 3 or 4 Efferdent tablets in the toilet bowl last thing before you go to bed. Put the lid down and leave all night. The next morning scrub and flush. Also works to get tomato stain out of tupperware dishes.

Lysol Brand makes a toilet bowl cleaner in a black bottle for lime and rust. I use it because we have well water and the porcelain gets an awful brown/red coating that can't be scrubbed off.

Let it sit for 30 minutes or so, use the brush then apply it again if needed. I got the toilet at work so clean, everyone thought they put in a new toilet.

Put a liter of coke and let sit for about 30 minutes. Then brush it off and flush it out.
