The Holiday season is upon us; bring on the parties, bring on good cheer and bring on the out of town guests! It is time to ratchet up the cleaning regime. A good place to begin is in the guest bathroom. I routinely swish out the toilet bowl but because my water is full of minerals and some rust (we have a well), my sinks and toilets get hard water rings. Regular cleaners do not do much to get rid of this grunge.
The first time I tried this solution, I was afraid that I would ruin my toilet but it really works. It requires no chemicals, only a bit of elbow grease. Here is what to do…
Get a pumice stone. You can buy one in the cosmetic section of the drug store. Make sure that it is made of 100% pumice. Pumice is organic rock formed from lava. It is softer than the vitreous china that makes up a toilet bowl.
Put on cleaning gloves
Scrub the offending stain and hard crusty ring in the bowl.
Swish the bowl and flush.
Step back and be amazed!
