‘Chemical-free’ 95p method breaks down limescale in toilet bowls

Most households will find limescale in their toilet bowls at some point, especially if they’re located in a hard water area.

Toilet limescale can appear as brown, green and black stains on toilet bowls. The unsightly stains can be difficult to remove and often can’t be tackled using bleach.

While there are a plethora of chemical toilet cleaner options available for removing limescale from toilets, they can be costly and smell strong.

With this in mind, Laura Marsden, a cleaning expert from Marigold, has shared a « low-cost » and « chemical-free » method for removing dirt and limescale from toilets.

Laura suggested using lemons and salt to break down and remove dirt and grime from toilet bowls.

She said: “The reality is everyone’s toilet needs some extra TLC once in a while.

« If you’re looking for a low-cost, chemical-free approach, then definitely give this hack a try.

« You’ll want to don your gloves for this one, to keep your hands protected. 

« You need a lemon, sliced in half and dipped in salt. Take your lemon and give your toilet a really good scrub.

« The salt acts as an abrasive, while the acid from the lemon helps break down the dirt. Not only will your basin shine, it’ll smell pretty good too.”

Salt and lemons can be bought from local supermarkets or online. Stamford Street Co. Unwaxed Lemons cost 81p for five lemons from Sainsbury’s.

Sainsbury’s Lemons also cost 30p each and Asda table salt costs 65p.

Lemon juice contains acids which react with the calcium carbonate in limescale. The acids help to dissolve limescale, making it easier to remove from surfaces like porcelain.

Lemons are often used to remove limescale from kettles as it’s natural and easy and will freshen up the appliance.
