I’m a cleaning mad mom – how to remove that gross stain from the floor of your toilet with a $2 product and no scrubbing

SOME household stains are so ingrained that they seem permanent, and even the most savvy cleaners know better than to try to address them.

The secret to removing stubborn bathroom stains isn’t in the plumbing supplies aisle, it’s in another part of the supermarket — and it doesn’t cost a fortune.

Australian mom Cheyenne Williams has tried countless treatments for her toilet’s hard water stains.

When none of them worked, she had given up hope until she found the holy grail at her local grocery store and shared the shocking before and after photos on TikTok.

“I’ve tried so many things,” Williams said. “It would take way too long to list all the things I’ve tried to fix those tough water stains.”

Williams explained that no matter how much she scrubbed, the sides of her toilet would come out clean while the bottom of the bowl would remain stained.

Then her sister mentioned a post she saw online about removing the stains with a cheap household item: citric acid.

The sour powder is sold in sachets or jars and is typically used at home for preserving fruit or making sour candy.

“I’ve spent hundreds of dollars on cleaning products,” an outraged Williams replied.

In fact, she had a closet full of abandoned, ineffective treatments, but her sister’s suggestion wasn’t among them.

“Citric acid isn’t what I tried,” Williams admitted.

She bought a small can from the store for A$2.40 – about $1.68 – and left it in the toilet overnight.

When she woke up, she quickly scrubbed the toilet with the brush to dissolve any remaining dirt and flushed.

“Come and see the before and after. The delighted mother invited her followers.

Williams shared a before photo, noting the clean sides of the toilet and the accumulated stains on the bottom of the bowl.

“What is that? It won’t go away,” she lamented.

The next photo was a sparkling, all-white toilet bowl with no visible stains.

“That, ladies and gentlemen, is after,” Williams said. “Simple, no elbow grease required.”

Williams bought a 75-gram can of citric acid from her supermarket for less than $2, which was good for one use.

You can find citric acid on your local store’s spice or canning aisles, or buy it online — a pound of the powder is $12 on eBay, which will get you six uses for just under $2 each.
