.....to clean the toilet bowl??

My sister seems to think I have all the answers to toilet bowl cleaning for some reason grin

I know she doesn't have white vinegar in the house and she asked if she can use normal vinegar instead.

I have absolutely no idea grin grin

There is a board dedicated to housekeeping tips or even chat would be more appropriate , there really is no need to clutter up AIBU

Sorry, I'd like to answer, but can't see the OP for all the clutter grin

How does one become a toilet cleaning afficianado?

Any substance with an acidic ph will help breakdown the limescale especially if left on for a considerable length of time!

Brown will work, it's just more expensive. It doesn't smell any more than the white one to me.

Coca cola will be more expensive still.

The best way is to try and remove as much water out of the toilet bowl first so that the vinegar isn't too diluted when it is against the limescale.

Agree with PP that brown will work

How much coke. And can it be the cheap morrisons one?

Iv got a whole bottle which might not be used before dsd leaves and I don't drink it

Any cola will work. The cheapest rubbish you can find.

How about diet pepsi? Would that work?

Writerwannabe83 Sun 28-Dec-14 21:54:59

My sister said the coke has had little effect. She left it in there for about 3 hours and she asked if that was long enough so I told her I have no idea and to Google it grin
