The technique to remove stubborn lime stains

For a new toilet bowl, we suggest you follow these instructions:
You will need the following ingredients:

  • a suction cup
  • White vinegar
  • rubber gloves
  • clean towels
  • a toilet brush
  • toilet paper
  • Before starting, empty the water from the container with a suction cup and then try to remove all the water if you think it is necessary. Then, spread white vinegar on the bottom of the container and then on the walls  to better cover difficult and particularly embedded stains.

    Next, soak  a handful of toilet paper with vinegar  and rub the stained areas. You will then let it sit overnight and then in the morning you will scrub the entire bowl with a toilet brush. If necessary, apply more force to deeply embedded stains.

    Keep in mind that the longer you let the household product sit, the more effective the trick will be. In fact, white vinegar can remove and disinfect all types of surfaces. Also, don’t hesitate to repeat the process if the stains persist. It is also good to remember that white vinegar is a notable anti-limescale agent and that is why it is advisable to use it to descale all affected surfaces in the house.
