Clean It, Fix It: Maxine reveals how best to remove toilet limescale
Limescale is a hard, chalky substance mainly made up of calcium carbonate. It is a common problem in areas with hard water, i.e. water with high dissolved mineral content.
Once limescale builds it can turn a funny colour. The colours can vary from off-white to a range of greys and pink or reddish browns.
In addition to being hard to clean and not so pleasing to the eye, it can cause serious damage to plumbing and heating components.
A Mrs Hinch fan has come up with a great solution to banish the grim stains without any scrubbing.
Posting on the Hinch Army Cleaning Tips Facebook group, one woman shared how she was able to remove stubborn brown limescale from her toilet in minutes.

“I drained most of the toilet water first, I poured this [Domestos Zero Limescale Toilet Cleaner] inside my toilet and left for 10 minutes before flushing. Very pleased with myself.
“The toilet bowl is now sparkling white and there are no more traces of limescale.”
Julie Slater said: “I love this toilet cleaner. It will sort it out without even scrubbing. I swear by it.”

Vicki Williams commented: “Bleach never removes limescale, but this works so well.”
Jane Keane said: “Yeah I’m with you girl, the limescale is so bad here. I found that Domestos works wonders.”
Jacquline mentioned that she had to Darin the toilet bowl before pouring in the toilet cleaner, one Mrs Hinch fan asked how to do this.
According to the Domestos website, this limescale remover is “three times thicker than ordinary toilet limescale removers” and “works quickly” to remove limescale from toilet bowls and kill germs.
The product can be picked up from Ocado for £2 or at Sainsbury’s for £2.15.
Jacquline replied: “I kept pushing the toilet brush in and out it gets rid of most the water back through the pipe but when you flush the water will fill back up as normal.”
