Buy a new one?

Go to hardware shop and ask for something called spirits of salts. Wear rubber gloves, and pour half the bottle down the loo, making sure the window is open (the stuff smokes rather fiendishly -- you don't want to be breathing it in). Shut the lid and leave for 20 mins, then scrub a bit with loo brush and flush.

Is it under the water line?

If so you need to remove as much water as possible before applying product.

A few good hard shoves round the u-bend with a toilet brush normally makes the water line drop right down. Then use something like Viakel to remove limescale deposits. Leave as long as possible.

Harpic (100% lime scale remover one)?

Neat bleach, leave it for half an hour or so before flushing.

However this only bleaches the limescale, it doesn;t remove it.

I read something somewhere about denture cleaning tabs but noever tried.

Doubt any product will do a brilliant job if you put it in the water, you need to apply neat to the stains.

arfy Wed 17-May-06 14:15:58

oh Meg, I read 'masses of please' and thought that you meant you'd just begged the loo to get clean

arfy Wed 17-May-06 14:17:08

anyhow, is there anyway you can lower the water level and then attack the stains? (need a plumbing expert here, but I'd do something with the ballcock, if that's what it's called)

Spirits of salts is scary, but it works. When we moved into our house it had been empty for 2 years and was practically derelict. The loo was so foul I got a plumber in to rip it out and replace. He did the spirits of salts trick (used a whole bottle) and it came up all nice and sparkly.

arfy Wed 17-May-06 14:24:08

how did I miss that SaintGeorge - sorry!

I think I was blinded by meg's 'clit bang' TBH

SaintGeorge Wed 17-May-06 14:26:46

This thread is getting filthy.

Clit bangs.
Shoves around the u-bend.
And apparently meg is begging for it going by the masses of pleases.

Going to get deleted, you watch.

I've rememebered something else, Kilrock-K descaler, you can get it from hardware shops, it's powerful stuff, and you have to put half the bottle down and leave overnight.

alligator Wed 17-May-06 14:44:57

think I'll pass on the spirit of salts trick to dp. Hes always whinging about our loo.

I have been known to scoop out as much of the water as I can with a paper cup and then blot the rest out with kitchen roll before chucking
C(i)lit Bang down there for an hour or two,then scrubbing it with a scourer.
I do like the sound of Spirit of Salts stuff though.Much more fun.
