Toilet cleaning

    I'm helping a friend to clean up a house after tenants left. There's an en-suite toilet that mustn't have been used too often as there are stains that we have failed to remove. We've tried bleach, scrubbing, acid-based products and baking soda - all to no avail. Does anyone have an idea of how to remove these stains. Thanks

    Try pour a bottle of coke down and leave it overnight then black harpic to clean it off next day

    Pour 2 cups of white vinegar into the toilet, close the lid and leave overnight.

    Scrub the next day.

    Some 120 grit sandpaper and elbow grease. It'll get it off.

    Put in a Milton tablet into it. Let id dissolve and remain for a few hours.

    This dealt with similar stains when I bought my house. Nohing else worked!

    Make exceptionally sure to have good ventilation when you go to brush at the end - the stench was incredible
