CLEANING fans online are thrilled to have another weapon in the fight against set-in toilet bowl stains – and it costs only $1.
The surprising solution to longstanding stains might already be nestled around your nail polishes and lotions.
Azure MacCannell is a mom of four, and her New Hampshire–based cleaning and organizing business, Composed, has over 617k followers on TikTok.
On the platform, she shares cleaning and organization tips, including one tool that shocked even dedicated viewers.
"If you scrub your toilet but still have a ring, you need this," MacCannell wrote in the caption.
Then, she took to her toilet bowl with a pumice stone, the porous lava rock many people know as a sure bet for removing rough skin and calluses from feet.

MacCannell scrubbed gently at the dark ring at the base of the bowl, making sure to keep the pumice stone wet.
As she scrubbed, the stain began to wear away. By the time she flushed the dirt and debris, her toilet bowl was sparkling clean.
The pumice stone "easily removes even the toughest hard water stains," MacCannell wrote.
The stone MacCannell used was a toilet-specific pumice stone that comes with a handle for reaching tight spaces, like under the rim of the toilet.

However, big retailers and local dollar stores sell pumice stones for as little as $1 – if you're willing to put on some rubber gloves and scrub away, a clean toilet can be yours for mere pennies per use.
In the comments section, some shocked viewers asked MacCannell about her method, and worried the stone could do damage to their homes.
"I’m afraid it’s gonna scratch my toilet," one person wrote.
"It’s a risk for sure," MacCannell admitted.
"I’ve had great success as long as I keep it wet when using and don’t press too hard."
She also warned a commenter against using the stone in her bathtub, after the viewer wondered if the tool would be effective there.
"Most tubs are fiberglass and in that case no," the expert explained.
"I’ve been trying to take that ring out," one excited viewer wrote, thanking MacCannell for the insight.
MacCannell also clarified in the comments that her home has hard water with high iron content and that the pumice stone works better than many leave-in treatments.
