I have a ring around the toilet bowl. Itís small but persistent and it was not always there. Thank have done the clorox wand scrubber which faded it, but itís still there. Iíve done maybe four rounds of toilet bowl cleaner, including one of the clingy gel type. Getting fainter but still there. Maybe it will eventually go away? At a loss and it is bothering me!

I cannot get down and scrub it as Iím on still on some surgery restrictions. Thankful for any ideas and help! Thank you!

Try the product called The Works
https://www.homedepot.com/p/The-Work...10WK/202520207

This stuff works when nothing else does on hard water stains.

Baking soda and vinegar. Sprinkle baking soda in. Pour in vinegar. Wait a minute or so. Scrub. Magic! I canít remember how much you are supposed to use of each. I just wing it. Iím sure if you want exact amounts Google could say.

I had a basement bathroom toilet that had the same issue. I used a toilet pumice stone. It worked perfectly. They last a long time. You should be able to find them at Walmart, Home Depot, and of course Amazon.

I will start with the Works. My mom swears by that and I had forgotten!

Then I will try the vinegar/baking soda.

The pumice stone is a great idea, but I can’t bend down and get in there to sustainably work with it right now. So hopefully the other two will do the trick!

Thank you so much for your help!

When you are able to scrub again, or convince someone to scrub for you, try these pumice scrubbers. They are great for getting hard stains.
