Hi, I'm Ann Myrick, and today I'm going to show you, how to clean a toilet bowl ring. A lot of times what happens, is on a toilet bowl ring, if the toilet has been sitting, and it either hasn't been cleaned or its just been sitting, and then the water makes a ring around it, what you want to do is really go in and clean that really well. So what I would do, is I would start off and flush it, in flushing it, it gets all the water all around the bowl of the toilet. And then I really like using a powder because it has a little bit of grit to it, so it scrubs better. But another thing that you could use if you're in a hurry, you could drop a few of the denture tablets in your water and leave it, and it will foam and clean, and then when you come back- this is a good one for people that work and they want to clean a little bit while they're gone, and then they come back and just swish around. But today I'm going to take the powder, and I'm going to use a little bit of elbow grease and just scrub. If you have time, sometimes you get let it sit and absorb into the stain, and then you're going to need to flush to see if you get it all, because the water, in this case, my water turned blue, and if I still see a little bit of stain still there, I'll just scrub. And whenever you use a cleaner in your toilet, you want to be sure that you continue to flush it out, (so I'm going to have to wait for my toilet to fill again) and then you just want to keep flushing out to be sure you get the dirt out, the dirt and the chemical out. This is Ann Myrick, and that is how you clean a toilet ring.
