    Default How do you get the brown stains off your toilet bowl?

    I'm not talking #2's but the water stain that leaves a brown mark down the back of the toilet where the water runs... I think I have tried all the conventional chemical methods and am now desperate - I hate that my toilet looks 'un clean'... Help!

    My SIL had a place that toilet had it and it was actually worn back to the stone not a stain or buildup etc. Maybe you could replace the toilet bowl. We usually replace toilets when we move into a house.

    If a strong chemical bleach and brush isn't doing it probably need a new toilet cause its just too old. Is an old toilet? The people who used the toilet in the past probably never cleaned it enough
    Also when you put the bleach, make sure its a thick one and leave it on for a while don't brush or flush straight away.

    I use bleach and a toilet brush every time! And they get cleaned regularly... The toilets are just over a year old... Any other ideas?

    It's definately a defective toilet then, you have an issue with the enamel. Take it back where you bought it and demand a new one!!

    Subbing. I might try some of these but I don't think it will help out loo. Our loo is so old.
