Brown stains on a toilet bowl can be a big problem. It’s not just an eyesore, it also means that the porcelain is being damaged and may even break down over time. So what can you do to remove brown stains from your toilet?
Well, there are two ways: one is to use chemicals and the other is by scrubbing with abrasive materials.
In this article I’ll show you how to get rid of those pesky brown stains using both methods so that your toilet will look as good as new!
First, I’ll give you a list of the chemicals that you can use to remove brown stains. Then I will show you how to do it!
First method: Using Chemicals To Remove Brown Stains From A Toilet Bowl
This first method is relatively easy and doesn’t require many materials. All you will need is some bleach (or a similar chemical cleaner) and a dry cloth in order to clean up the liquid.
First, pour out about half of the liquid inside your tank in order to empty the bowl. Then, using an ordinary toilet brush, mix one part liquid bleach with three parts water.
Using this mixture, start scrubbing at the brown stains. For tough stains, allow the brush to sit for a few minutes before scrubbing again. For lighter stains, you may have to scrub one to three times in order to remove them completely.
Then flush the toilet and let it fill back up. Once it’s full, scrub the bowl again and then flush one final time to rinse off the bleach.
Second Method: Using Abrasive Materials To Remove Brown Stains From A Toilet Bowl
The second method for removing brown stains from a toilet is much more difficult and requires a lot of elbow grease. It also involves much more risk to the porcelain and may even damage it in the long run so I only recommend this method if you have no other choice.
First, mix one tablespoon of baking soda with one teaspoon of cedar wood oil soap.
Then wet an abrasive cloth, like a sponge or an old piece of sandpaper (which you should not use on anything else), with water.
Scrub the brown stains using this mixture and then rinse off the soap residue.
If the stain is gone now you are all set!
But if it’s still there… continue to scrub until the stain is gone and the rinse out all soapy residue.
