Toilet cleaner

What do most of you use to clean your toilets, I don't like the water line and dingy look I am developing. Basic kitchen cleaner doesn't seem to cut it.

If it is porcelain some folks have used pumice stones to polish out the rings which are typically caused by hard water deposits.

I find myself using baby wipes daily (or even 2-3 times a day) to wipe dust, etc and soap film off the toilet and the sinks and even the shower doors. I of course use Lysol wipes and a Clorox wand in the toilet at least once a trip. The baby wipes don't smear and let me keep things under control in between a deeper clean. I keep a pack of baby wipes and Lysol wipes handy on the counter by the bathroom sink.

Baby wipes and toilet bowl cleaner are hell on RV dump stations septic systems. I use vinegar and water in a spray bottle and toilet paper (single ply) to clean the bowl and sink. Vinegar is a natural smell killer and cuts the crud as well as anythying commercially available.

Bleach is the worst stuff to use on any RV commode. Ruins the seals, ruins the Campsite septic system too.

X2!! We brush ours every couple of days using Kaboom with bleach. Been full time for nearly four years with never a ring.... and don't forget to scrub the rubber gasket while you're in there

Look for aqua Kem it has for Melda Hyde and it really breaks down the waist and really does a good job on regulating odor

Muriatic acid will hurt nothing in the plumbing system. It takes very little to handle a heavy-duty cleaning job.

Ditto - Kaboom or Fantastic and brush. We've done that on our RVs since 2001 and never had a problem.

It'll eventually damage the fluid level sensors in the black water tank.

If "skid marks" are the problem spraying the dried bowl with Pam makes them easier to clear.

If hard water and rust stains are the problem ,daily brushing, no cleaner , will do the job.

Jeez...do you really think that much acid is needed to clean a stained toilet bowl? How about using a little common sense.

Baby wipes shouldn't be flushed. I wipe things off and then dispose of them in the trash. I figure if they are gentle enough for a baby's butt, they can't harm my toilet.
