Stop Lime Scale in Your Toilets

Are you constantly trying to scrub and clean your toilets because of all of the grit and grime in the inside? Even when you clean it, somehow the problem rears its head again. It becomes a cycle and a non-stop task on your cleaning list. This stubborn build up is due to the mineral buildup that occurs during the constant flushing process. As you flush your toilet, hard water hits against the sides of the toilet bowl, leaving mineral deposits. The deposits stick to the side of your toilet bowl like glue and the minerals harden. Every time you flush, the same process happens and the lime scale keeps building up. So how do you clean and stop lime scale from developing in your toilet?

Cleaning Your Toilet Bowl

There are a few items you can use to remove lime scale once you see it forming in your toilet. You can use:

Lime scale remover from the store. There are lime scale cleaning products you can purchase at the grocery store. You usually spray or sprinkle the product onto the surface, let it sit for a specified amount of time, and then wipe it off. You may have to repeat these steps a few times to completely remove the stains around the toilet bowl. Also, whether the product works or not depends on the quality of the brand. You might have to choose a few options and try them out to see which one works best.

Lemon or vinegar trick. You’ve probably heard it before or tried it before. Try using common household items like lemon or vinegar to remove the hard water mineral deposits. But remember, this won’t necessarily stop lime scale from returning. You can put the lemon oil or vinegar into a bottle and spray it on the sides of the toilet. Make sure you let the solution sit for a while before wiping. Additionally, spray your sponge or towel with lemon or vinegar as well to increase the cleaning effectiveness.

After you’ve cleaned everything, you’re probably wondering how can you prevent this from happening again?

Ways to Stop Lime Scale

The most effective ways to decrease the chance of lime scale in your toilet is by treating the water. You’ll want to research products such as water descalers or water conditioner to stop mineral deposits from forming and adhering to your surfaces, including your toilets. By installing a water descaler system in your home, it removes the minerals in water that form lime scale. Preventing lime scale buildup all together, beats the continuous need to scrub your toilet. After all, no one likes the unsightly presence of stains and grime around the toilet.
