HOW DO I GET RID OF HARD WATER STAINS FROM A PORCELAIN TOILET?
No matter how much and how well or how often you clean your toilet, if you live in an area with hard water then your toilet bowl will definitely stain from time to time. Most often a brown ring will form around the bowl’s waterline.
Hard water stains in a toilet are caused by presence of minerals like iron, manganese and calcium in the water. The minerals reacts with oxygen to form a brown stains which stick on the bowl, mostly around the waterline where they form what is called a toilet ring.
Brown toilet stains are caused by a high concentration of manganese and iron in the toilet water. When iron reacts with oxygen it forms a brown substance which is what is commonly referred to as rust.
Calcium deposits on a toilet bowl are prevalent in areas where water has a high concentration of lime. They appear as an ugly cloudy or off-white deposit that make your toilet look dirty and older than it really is.
To remove hard water stains from a toilet bowl, pour a cup of baking soda or half a cup borax followed by another cup of vinegar. Swish the solution around the bowl every five minutes for 30 minutes then scrub the stains away with a toilet brush. Alternatively, use a pumice stone, Shaw’s pads or dryer sheets to scrub to scrub the bowl.
