How to get an old and filthy toilet back to glory Answered
I moved into a new rental and it was a bit neglected to say it nice.
My longest nouisance however was the old toilet.
Calcium and urine stains turned the bottom, where the water sits, into a black, crusty mass.
Toilet cleaners of all sorts provide a nice smaell, but even bleach or things like jiffy did not do a thing.
Hours were wasted trying to scrape, brush or just swear the filth off but no luck.
All I managed was to turn the black into a slightly grey crust, still ugly.
One day I had the honor to clean my water kettle and to remove the calcium deposits in it.
Of course I was lazy and just some delimer, citric acid, as instructed.
Let it sit a few hours, wipe it out, nice.
Hold on a second, what would happen if I use that stuff in the toilet?!?
So I flushed some hot water through to warm up the bowl, then about 1 liter of boiling hot water with two packs of coffee machine cleaner dissolved in it.
Let it sit over night only to be very disappointed the next morning.
It looked like nothing changed.
Unlike pots and kettles my toilet appeared to still have al crusts stuck in it.
When I flushed however most of it just flushed away!
A little brushing and the rest was gone too - a clean and white toilet again!
No more calcium and other hard deposits :)
