Full Answer

Pouring 3 cups of vinegar into a toilet bowl before scrubbing the stains with a toilet brush is an effective stain-removing method. Pouring the vinegar into a spray bottle, draining the water from the toilet, and spraying the stains with vinegar is also effective. Combining a cup of vinegar with a cup of baking soda creates a fizzing reaction in the toilet, which helps to loosen stains. Allow the mixture to fizz for at least 10 minutes before using a toilet brush to scrub the toilet.
