How To Get Rid Of The Ring Around The Toilet
I’m gettin’ down & dirty today. Cleaning toilets. Doesn’t get much dirtier than that! So, how do you get rid of that yucky brown ring around the toilet bowl? You’ve cleaned the toilet but it still looks stained and unclean. Well, the ring is not actually a stain but mineral deposits from hard water. So, instead of trying to wipe it clean, it needs to be scraped off. There are two things I know from experience that can remove it. One is a pumice stone. The other method is using sandpaper. Yes, sandpaper!
I get a pack of assorted grit sandpaper from the dollar store and it works great. I love that it is disposable. I just toss the paper in the trash when I am done!
Make sure you are wearing gloves because you’ve got to get your hand inside the toilet bowl. Flush the toilet and while the water level is down, gently rub it on the ring and watch it disappear. Flush again and the ring is gone! Toss the sandpaper and you are done! Amazing, right? This method doesn’t scratch the toilet, it simply removes the buildup without any harsh chemicals.
Now, you can move on to bigger and better things than scrubbing the toilet….like laundry! :)
