5 Things You Didn’t Know Could Fix a Toilet


1. Did you know that you can remove rust with a pumice stone? Scrub the ring with a pumice stone in light, If there’s rust on your porcelain throne. Don’t forget to keep both the pumice stone and the toilet wet – otherwise, you may scratch the porcelain.

2. Use Coca-Cola to remove stains. Use a 12-ounce can of Coca-Cola to get rid of stubborn toilet bowl stains. Just pour the full can around the rim of your toilet so it coats the toilet bowl and let the soda sit for an hour. Scrub the bowl with a toilet brush and flush, after an hour of waiting.

3. Use vinegar to remove mineral deposits. They are not dangerous but they sure look bad. Simply soak toilet paper in white vinegar and then set the wet paper directly on top of the hard water stain, in order to get rid of these unsightly beasts. Let the vinegar sit for a night and just flush your toilet the next morning and the stains will be gone.

4. Use a soda bottle to reduce water use. Just fill an empty 1-liter soda bottle with water and place it inside the toilet tank. If you want to save on your water bill, put a bottle inside of the tank and the bottle will cut down on the water used with each flush.

5. Use baby oil to polish the porcelain. This is not a fix exactly but a dirty toilet can still be a problem in a way. Use only few drops of baby oil applied on a clean and soft cloth. Buff the toilet bowl and exterior of the toilet tank until the porcelain looks shiny and dry.
