How Do I Clean a Toilet with Rust?

What is Toilet Rust?

There are “more complicated” answers that can be found on the internet, but for our purposes, let’s just say that Toilet Rust is caused by the “Iron” in the water.  Some areas have more “Iron” than others; therefore, the toilets have more rust.

How Do I Get Rid of Toilet Rust?

A few years ago, I learned about the power of Lysol Power Toilet Bowl Cleaner.

My name is Adam Johnson, and I own TurnClean Services.  Our company cleans hundreds of Rental Properties every year.  A few years ago, I had a cleaner in an “Older Home” outside of Athens, Ga.

The inside of the toilet is this home was Orange!

The cleaner, who was in charge of this home, worked hard to clean the toilet, but to be frank, it still looked Orange and Awful.  I came by the home, and tried myself, but to no avail.

So I went to the store and bought Toilet Bowl Cleaner.  I am almost certain is was Lysol Power Toilet Bowl Cleaner.

I was amazed how well it worked!

I am a big fan of Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner for Rust.

There are two in particular that I would suggest:

The “Lime and Rust Toilet Bowl Cleaner” is more expensive than the Lysol Power Toilet Bowl Cleaner.  I would suggest trying the “Power” version first.  Its great stuff, and you may not even need the more expensive “Lime and Rust” version.

Want to See “Lysol Power” in action? Look at the video at the top of this page.

My assumption is that  the “Lime and Rust” version is more expensive because its a superior product for “Tough Rust Stains.”

To see it in the “Lime and Rust” version in action, check out the video below…

Final Thoughts About Toilet Rust

If the toilet bowl cleaner you are currently using isn’t removing the rust, use the LYSOL POWER!  Its really good stuff.  Often being a cleaner doesn’t mean “Scrubbing Really Hard,” it means having the “Correct Cleaning Chemical” for the job at hand.
