For this helpful cleaning hack, you'll need to gather a few supplies:
- A Plunger
- An Old Towel
- Gallon of Cleaning Vinegar
- Paper Towel Roll
- Scrub Brush
- Thick Cleaning Gloves
Once you have these items rounded up, it's time to tackle the first step! They very first thing you'll need to do is throw on the rubber cleaning gloves and grab the plunger. You'll use the plunger to force water in the toilet bowl away.
It's important that the bowl be dry, so you'll need to wipe away any remaining fluid with the old towel.
Once the toilet bowl is nice and dry, grab the cleaning vinegar and pour it into the toilet! You'll want to use a little more than half of the container - the vinegar should reach higher than the water line that usually fills when you flush!
After you pour in the vinegar, it's time for the next, most important, step.
You'll need to soak pieces of paper towel in the vinegar and apply them around the rim of the toilet bowl, or where the hard water stains are most visible. The longer the paper towels sit on the stains, the easier they'll come off.
After allowing the vinegar to soak into the affected spots, remove them and grab your scrub brush.
Use the scrub brush to carefully remove any remaining hard water stains. This will take a little elbow grease and a fair amount of patience - remember, Rome wasn't built in one day!
Once you see all of the hard water stains are gone, you can allow the vinegar to remain at the bottom of the toilet bowl for a little longer, or you can flush it away! You should do this once every few months to prevent further buildup and other unsightly stains.
