How to get rid of rust in the toilet bowl: a grandma's trick

Acid remedies cope with rust in a few minutes

Yellow traces of rust in the toilet bowl seem to be an insurmountable obstacle for lovers of cleanliness. After all, this contamination is capable of penetrating the surface. However, in fact, it is quite possible to get rid of rust. And without any extra effort.

Sante Plus collected a few tricks that were used by our grandmothers. They knew how to destroy ugly stains, which appear due to the contact of water with iron impurities in the air. Here are a few remedies to get rid of the problem quickly and easily.

Oxalic acid

This product is often used to bleach textiles and leather, it is even used to restore yellowed marble. It will also cope with stains on the toilet bowl. To do this, take 10 ml of acid in 90 ml of water and pour the solution on the areas you want to clean. Next, you'll need to scrub the stains with a rough side of a sponge or brush. Work with the product can only be done with protective gloves.

Hydrochloric Acid

It can be used in the same way as oxalic acid. But you have to protect yourself more carefully. In addition to gloves, you'll need goggles and a respirator because hydrochloric acid can cause chemical burns.

Citric Acid and Soda

Citric acid combined with baking soda is very effective. You can prepare a paste mixture of these substances with water and apply it to the stains and then scrub them with a brush. For the best effect, the paste can be left on the surface under clingfilm to keep it moist. Or you can use fresh lemon. Apply baking soda or coarse salt to the cut and thoroughly rub the stain with this cut, then leave the product for 15 minutes and wash off.

Wine Stone

This acidic product is often used in cooking to make dough. It can also be sprinkled on rust stains. And not only on the toilet bowl, but also on sinks or bathtubs. To clean dirt with tartar, it is best to use a brush moistened in water. Also, acid powder mixed with water can break down difficult deposits. Especially if left to act under a film.

Soda or salt

Baking soda powder or table salt can act as a mild abrasive that will mechanically remove rust without scratching the earthenware. Wet the surface you want to clean, then sprinkle the abrasive over it. Allow a few minutes for the abrasive to work, then scrub and rinse.
