Whitening and Disinfecting Your Toilet!

If your bathroom is completely spotless and smells wonderful but you lift the lid on your toilet and it is a bit grubby - it just makes your entire bathroom seem dirty and unkempt.

Wet your pumice stone and then scrub (gently) to remove the stain.

White Vinegar: Yes, vinegar is a great stain remover for your toilet. You will need to shut the water off and flush the toilet to remove the water from the bowl. Soak several paper towels (or old rags you want to throw away anyway.) in the vinegar.
