White vinegar is the perfect tool for combating all these hard water spots that can ruin the gleaming look of any surface. All you have to do is to pour a few cups of it right onto the walls of the toilet bowl. Give it a minute to start doing its magic, then clean the surface with a toilet scrubber or brush. When there are no more stains, flush the toilet to wash off the remains of vinegar.

Keep in mind that this trick works only on fresh stains.

2. Baking soda

Baking soda helps turn vinegar into a more effective weapon against the hard water spots and stains. First, you need to pour a cup or two of vinegar into the toilet bowl, spread it all over the surface with a scrubber, and let it soak for a couple of minutes.

Next, pour a cup of baking soda into the toilet and add one more cup of vinegar. Brush the walls slightly to spread the mix and leave it there for a few minutes. Finally, scrub the surface until it is completely stains-free and flush the toilet.

3. Kool-Aid
