Default How do you make your toilet cleaner?

We've got nasty water in Pittsburgh, so my toilet gets that yummy pink stuff. And mildew freckles.

Anyways, I'd eventually like to transition all cleaning products to homemade/green cleaners, but am only doing so as things run out. So, I'm out of toilet cleaner, but I need something that is abrasive and ultra bleachy-like because of how gross our water turns my toilet. (As in, after a year, my brand new toilet already had permanent stains. Grrr!)

Please share recipes and tips!

TIA!

A can of soda works. Just pour it in and the fizzies work on the stains. Let it sit for a bit then use a toilet brush like normal.

Have you tried sprinkling bicarb. in and then pouring vinegar on top? That fizzes up nicely and the acid will help shift stuff.

I do the disposable clorox wands I have my green limits. When I am puking, I want a sparkling bowl with absolutely no left over funk or smell.
