    Default Cleaning dried stuff off toliets


    I just started cleaning a house for somebody yesterday and they have

    something all over the toliets. i am assuming it is dried urine( it is

    a boys' only bathroom). The trouble was is most of my cleaners did

    nothing for this stuff. Has anyone dealt with this before? I explained

    yesterday that it would not come off and the mom admitted that she

    tried in the past but had no luck. It isreally caked on and looks

    horrible. I want to do the best job possible but do not know what to

    do. Can anyone give me a suggestion? Thanks Marsha

    Have you tried the Mr. Clean Eraser? Those things work magic! I think I

    would spray with a bleach water mix, and start scrubbing with the Mr. Clean

    Eraser after about 10 minutes. Another thing that might work is a paste of

    salt and water, scrubbed again with the Mr. Clean Eraser.

    First, spray something like vinegar/water mix on it to soak into it,

    and let it sit for a while. Spray it every 15-20 minutes in between

    cleaning other things up.



    After about an hour, sprinkle it with an abrasive powder cleaner-

    Comet, Barkeepers Friend, etc. Use a stiff scrub brush on it.

    the works toilet bowl cleaner is the best stuff you can find. i was sick

    and in the hospital once and for 2 months my boys bathroom at the time did

    not get cleaned. the works was the only thing that worked. pour it on

    wherever there is a problem and let it sit for about an hour, than just wipe

    it off. its harsh stuff so wear gloves and DO NOT USE ON PLASTIC. i

    learned this the hard way. there was rust in the back of our toilet (well

    water) and i thought "hey, this will clean it up real nice" uh, no, it ate

    all the plastic parts in there and i woke up at 3 in the morning to a

    flooded bathroom.

    A pumice stone should work and it won't scratch. Or a white scrubby, the

    kind for cleaning teflon pans. You don't have to use a cleanser just water

    and some elbow grease.

    Steam?



    Lysol, full strength, let it sit, then, wash as normal.



    You can get the kind in the dark brown bottle, still, I

    think.

    I bought a house with a toliet like this...I ended up chipping away at it with a scraper and the tub also...hard water built up......it looked like a completley new toilet and sink but took alot of hard work...Also the pumice stone is the greatest and inexpensive....(once the worst of it was gone...) Have fun....UGH!

    I am a huge fan of vinegar, a 50/50 mixture works great. Spray, let sit for 10 minutes then go back with a razor blade to the crusties. yuck! The vinegar will also deodorize. Super cheap too!!!! Jeanne

    not sure if you found your answer or not, but to me it sounds like you

    have a "hard" water calcium build-up. Most people have hard water, when

    they have a well, in the ground, to get their water, and they don't

    have county water or city water (water that comes from a tank somewhere

    and is treated with chlorine and stuff) They make a scrubber, that is

    specifically for this type of clean up. It may be the pumice stones

    spoke of in the earlier replies. The "gadget" has a handle, and last

    forever. It doesn't scratch the bowl. Probably look for them in the

    toilet bowl cleaning section at the store.
