Getting Iron Stains Off From the Toilet

Many households get iron stains in their toilet bowls that leave an unsightly sight. They not only look bad, but can be very difficult to remove, until now. Read this article and try using this technique to get rid of the stains in your toilet.

1.) Drain the water out of the toilet and turn the water off so that it can not refill the bowl.

2.) Make sure that you put gloves on before you begin, for you will be using harsh chemicals and you do not want to burn your skin.

3.) Get a toilet ring remover pad. You can find these pads in any store where cleaning supplies are sold.

4.) Start by spraying the stain with a rust remover. Consider purchasing a stain remover that is very strong and is recommended for iron stains.

5.) Scrub the stain with the pad and continue adding rust remover as you move along the inside of the bowl.

6.) Repeat the process until you get the results that you desire.

7.) Turn the water back on and let the toilet refill.

It can take a lot of time and elbow grease to get rust stains out of your toilet. Because of this, you will want to keep your toilet cleaned once the stain is gone. Repeat the steps above, but with not as strong chemical, once a month to ensure the iron stains do not come back. You do not want to have to go through this entire process again with a strong stain.

Harsh water can cause rust stains on a regular basis and continuing to use harsh chemicals for cleaning your toilet can be damaging for your septic system. So, you will want to clean your toilet regularly in order to avoid rust build up in the toilet.
