Use Car Wax for Toilet Bowl Stains

After you wax your car, save some for the toilet bowl, too! The easiest way to get rid of toilet bowl rings is to use car wax.

Clear the toilet of water by turning off the valve and flushing. Then apply the wax to the inside of the bowl and let it set for ten minutes before replenishing with water and using.

The slick materials in wax make it so nothing can stick to the surface of the bowl, meaning no more grimy stains.

It leaves a coating on the surface that helps the fixtures, especially stainless steel ones, remain shiny longer.
