How to Remove a Toilet Ring
Flush the toilet so that the entire inside of the toilet bowl is wet. When the toilet bowl is wet, the powdered cleanser has a surface to stick to and is less likely to fall into the water.
Sprinkle powdered cleaner into the toilet, making sure it sticks to the inner edges of the bowl. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes so that the bleach in the cleanser can begin to work on your toilet bowl ring.
Scrub the toilet bowl ring with the scouring powder. Be sure to get up under the rim so that the bacteria that grows there doesn't make its way down into the toilet bowl.
Flush the toilet again, this time to rinse the cleanser away. Use the scrubbing brush to touch up any spots you might have missed. The flushing water can serve to rinse the scrubber, too.
Spray the inside of the toilet bowl with diluted bleach 2-3 times each day to prevent the growth of another toilet ring. With any luck, you may never have to scrub a toilet again.
Tips & Warnings
- For a natural scouring powder, use baking soda to scrub your toilet bowl ring.
- Make sure that you dilute the bleach according to the label instructions.
