    Bit discusting - Need help to clean Toilet in new place

    Hi all

    Well as the title says - Need help to clean toilet in my new place.

    So you don't throw up I have not included any pictures.. (can do so at a request)

    Anyway, got the keys to my new place today and was looking forward to getting inside and planning where everyhting will be going..

    One other thing I was looking forward to (without sounding like a sicko who loves toilets) is:

    1) not burning my leg on the toilet as the raidiator is very close

    and

    2) not having to flush the toilet twice for the waist to go away (land lord knowns about this)

    anyway.... We ring the doorbell on the new place incase the landlord was there, as he had been doing the place up and sleeping there... No answer so we open and walk in.

    Place smelt a bit as it had been painted etc so we open a few windows....

    Go up stairs and open more windows and then walk into the bathroom, which is very big. Turned to my girlfriend and said dare you to open the toilet. She does and we are greeted with a very limescaled toilet...

    How can I celan it. Bleach isn't shifting it, bought a big bottle of white vinegar and pour the lot in, that was at 9:30 this morning. Txt my girlfriend to check on the toilet and give it a flush and see what happens.

    Was told nothing, its still there!!! Just a bit lighter in colour...

    Can anyone recommend a good cleaner to use!!!!

    Vinegar is weak...

    Most supermarkets sell Toilet Cleaner with limescale remover, and they work quite well.

    I've tried domestos, harpic, even cheap stuff from pound shop, and even mixing them together. Its like years and years of $hitting and limescale - some one said try muriatic acid but I have know idea where to get it let alone if they would sell something like that to me!!!

    Citric acid will shift it, the kind you dilute when spraying your boots for foot & mouth controlled areas. Obviously make a stronger mix. A bloke at work made a mega strong mix to clean out a cement mixer that he paid £25 for, came up good as new inside
