To remove toilet bowl stains, you can follow these steps:

  1. Gather your cleaning supplies: You will need rubber gloves, a toilet brush or scrub brush, toilet bowl cleaner, white vinegar or lemon juice, baking soda, and a pumice stone (optional).
  2. Put on rubber gloves: It’s important to protect your hands from the cleaning chemicals and bacteria present in the toilet bowl.
  3. Apply toilet bowl cleaner: Squirt a generous amount of toilet bowl cleaner around the rim and sides of the bowl, making sure to cover the stained areas. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the cleaner to penetrate the stains.
  4. Scrub the bowl: Take a toilet brush or scrub brush and vigorously scrub the inside of the bowl, paying special attention to the stained areas. Use a circular motion to remove the stains.
  5. Flush the toilet: After scrubbing, flush the toilet to rinse away the cleaner and any loosened debris.
  6. Use vinegar or lemon juice: If the stains persist, you can try using natural acidic cleaners like white vinegar or lemon juice. Pour about a cup of vinegar or lemon juice into the toilet bowl and let it sit for several hours, or overnight if possible. The acid will help dissolve and break down the stains.
  7. Scrub again: After the vinegar or lemon juice has had time to work, scrub the bowl again with the toilet brush or scrub brush. This should help remove any remaining stains.
  8. Flush and assess: Flush the toilet to rinse away the vinegar or lemon juice. Take a look at the bowl and see if the stains have been removed. If not, you can try the next step.
  9. Baking soda paste: Make a paste by mixing baking soda with a small amount of water. Apply the paste directly to the stained areas and let it sit for a few minutes. Then, scrub the bowl once more with the toilet brush or scrub brush. Baking soda is mildly abrasive and can help lift stubborn stains.
  10. Pumice stone (optional): If the stains still persist, you can use a pumice stone to gently scrub the stained areas. Wet the pumice stone and rub it against the stains, being careful not to apply too much pressure as it can scratch the porcelain. Always keep the stone and the toilet bowl wet while using it.
  11. Final rinse: Flush the toilet again to rinse away any remaining cleaning agents, debris, or residue.

Remember to follow any safety precautions mentioned on the cleaning products you use and to ventilate the bathroom properly during the cleaning process.
