Toilet cleaning


That might be black mold on your rim; if it is then you can try this method for cleaning:
This method will also help to clean your toilet as well as kill black mold in the toilet bowl, pour 1 cup of vinegar in the toilet bowl and 1 cup in the tank with the water. Sprinkle baking soda all around the inside of the toilet bowl and into the water in the bowl as well. This will create some fizzing as the vinegar and baking soda interact. Allow this to stay in the bowl with the lid closed for about an hour.

When you return to the bathroom in about an hour and open the toilet bowl lid, you will see that the mold still appears to be there. Use a toilet bowl brush and scrub the mold stains. Be sure to splash the vinegar water all around the bowl and brush under the rim well with it. Allow the toilet to stay undisturbed for another 15 minutes.

When you return to the bathroom after 15 minutes, flush the toilet and wipe around the seat and rim with a vinegar-soaked cloth. Use the toilet brush to tackle any mold stains that may remain. Remember that you put vinegar in the tank so that when you flushed, it infused the toilet with the mold-killing power of vinegar all over again. Close the toilet lid and leave it for a few hours. Flush it. The toilet will now be mold free. To prevent mold from coming back, simply add 1 cup vinegar to your toilet tank a few times a week this is a cheap and environmentally friendly way to clean your toilet.
