How to Get Hard Water Stains Out of Your Toilet
Minerals can be great for the body but not always so great for the toilet, which sounds backward unless talking about hard water. Magnesium and calcium are the main culprits in creating the “hardness” of hard water, and what they leave behind in the bathroom ranges from cement-like, discolored blobs of buildup to brown rust and even black rings and ridges.Good thing the body uses minerals for strength and wellness because that’s what you’ll need to muscle the hard water stains out of your bathroom surfaces and especially the toilet, which is coated in mineralized hard water day and night. This water residue is nearly impossible to remove with just soap and water, and even if you do manage to clean it away, it comes back again and again.
Removing hard water stains from the toilet is possible with the right product or combination of products, and better yet, it’s also possible to avoid having the stains build up as quickly and as thickly. We won’t go soft on hard water stains.
If you already have rings around the toilet bowl, a couple of popular types of products may just disappoint. Bleach and bleach-containing cleansers often make the stains worse or do practically nothing at all depending on the mineral content of your water. Something in the chemical reaction can actually make the stain darker of just completely impenetrable to the power of bleach.
Some soapy, detergent-based commercial cleaners don’t do much more than roll off of the stains and dissolve in the water itself, doing nothing to remove the hard water stains or buildup. Even abrasive powders can be a letdown if they aren’t backed up with a lot of hard and long scrubbing, and scouring pads or rough brushes can damage toilet surfaces over time.
