How do I clean a really dirty toilet?

Hey all. So one of my neighbors are paying me to clean their rental house. The former people moved out recently. I've got about a week before the inspectors come cause she wants to rent it out again. In any case, the toilet is super dirty. Obviously the person never cleaned this thing. The crap is so caked on that I just can't seem to get it clean. I scrubbed for like 20 minutes and it while it helped, it's still not coming clean. Btw, I used a toilet bowl disinfector and I tried Comet.

Anyone else have any better suggestions?

A pumice stone? Where's the best place to find this? I went to Walmart last night and the only thing I could find was for feet. I asked the employees and they were clueless.

First off, that sounds disgusting. Secondly, I've heard that oven cleaner works for that as it is super potent. Never tried it myself so have no idea if it works but thought I would throw it out there.

Yeah, that sounds disgusting. But when I do a hard to clean surface I always use muriatic acid. But you have to be careful when using this acid. Must have to use gloves as well. Afterwards, you can use Lysol with Hydrogen Peroxide to kills the bacteria.

Kling Ons

re-moisturize the Kling Ons then it is easier to remove. Re-moisturize Water works, water & bleach 1 part bleach to 10 parts water, keep spraying it with liquid and it will loosen up. Brad BDJanitorial

HELP NEEDED: DAYCARE PRICING

Hi, i just started my cleaning business,(licensed, insured and bonded) and i got a prospect (daycare center) who is dissatisfied with their current cleaning service, the day care floor area is 14,066 sq ft, they have several rugs totaling an area of 1,787 sq ft. We will clean it 5 times a week, dusting, sweeping and mopping every night.

My questions are the following:

We live in Tampa, FL to give you more information.

How much should we charge per square foot (vinyl floors)?
How much should we charge per square foot for cleaning the carpets ?
Should we charge hourly also on top of the price for square footage? ( we are 2 employees/owners)
How much should we charge for stripping and waxing?, they want the vinyl floors stripped and waxed twice a year.

What formula should i use to take into account the frequency of the cleaning...3 times a week for example?

Thank you so much for your assistance, i definitely don't want to loose or come up high with my very first customer!, any help would be much appreciated.

Pumice Stone + These Tips Work Great

I agree with what a lot of people here said. It's all about the pumice stone when it comes to removing rings around a toilet. NOTHING does it better. One tip I will add is that the pumice stone is most effective when there is no water in the toilet. Before cleaning the bowl, I always dump in a bucket of water into the toilet to make all the toilet water go down. Another thing I do is dip the pumice stone in a solution of 1 part Fabuloso (any all purpose cleaner will work) and 3 parts water. This will get almost any bowl looking brand new!

Citric acid and boiled water and then scrub with the toilet brush. That stuff will kill anything.

Another vote for Pumice Stone

It works - no chemicals needed.

It's up to you anyway. There are lots of ways to do it, just better search some and eventually follow instructions then.

Hi,

Pumice stone is nothing but a stone used for pedicure purpose. It is often used for other home cleaning purposes as well. I used it for car cleaning, because I have a pet.
