There is a good chance that the stains in the toilet bowl are mineral deposits that have solidified over time if cleaning them does not make them go.
Hard water contains a high concentration of minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, which can leave stains on your toilet that get even more ingrained the longer they are allowed to remain there.
So, let's work on cleaning those stains that just won't come out! In due time, your toilet will regain its luster and return to its original white color.
The recipe calls for baking soda and vinegar.
Baking soda and white vinegar are both popular home materials that are utilized in the process of cleaning. You won't need to resort to using harsh chemicals to clean your toilet if you follow this method (and you won't sacrifice effectiveness, either!).
The first step is to pour the vinegar.
To begin, obtain a cup of vinegar, pour it into the toilet bowl, and then scrub the bowl's surface with a toilet brush. After that, let the mixture a minute to rest. Vinegar's naturally acidic composition will work almost immediately, dissolving the mineral deposits.
The second step is to pour in the baking soda.
Baking soda and vinegar should each be added to the toilet bowl in the ratio of one cup baking soda to two cups vinegar. Because a chemical reaction occurs when baking soda and vinegar are combined, you shouldn't be startled if you observe the mixture starting to bubble. Ten minutes should be set aside for the solution to rest.
Third Step Get brushing
To finish, begin circling the solution in the toilet bowl (especially on stubborn stains). The baking soda and vinegar should break up the surface crud. Don't forget that you shouldn't flush the toilet! You're not done yet.
Fourth Step Wait and rinse
Wait half an hour before proceeding with the solution. Then, repeat the process of swishing the mixture around a few more times (doing so will ensure that the stains are removed!).
If any hard water stains are still there, you may scrape them with your toilet brush. After the allotted time has passed and the stains have been removed, flush the toilet to clean it. At this point, the bowl of your toilet should be devoid of any traces of water.
