To ask you to help me clean my toilet?

Well, the underside of the seat to be exact

I'm mortified to say that I've only just noticed that the front of the seat underneath has gone horribly yellow.

In my defence, the cleaners do all the loos and once a week and I rarely do the one in question as it's not used as much. Only my DS really.

Is it from little boy sit down wees?!

Either way, it's yuck. I've scrubbed at it with some bleach to no effect. Blush

Any ideas?!

Try a brillo pad. I'm a cleaner and this works really well. Sometimes though its time for a new loo seat but definitely try the brillo.

Thanks donajimena haven't tried that

Limescale remover will work

You need a magic eraser sponge. That will shift it easily. I use this one <a class="break-all" href="//www.amazon.co.uk/Ecozone-Magic-Stain-Eraser-Quality/dp/B0052L66PU?tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21" rel="nofollow noindex" target="_blank">//www.amazon.co.uk/Ecozone-Magic-Stain-Eraser-Quality/dp/B0052L66PU?tag=mumsnet&ascsubtag=mnforum-21. Really does work like magic.

Limescale remover I will try
I actually have one of those sponges! Never know what to do with it
Actually, hope I haven't chucked it!

Agree with donajimena that sometimes it just won't shift. Which is why when people say they can clean their loos in 2 minutes I don't believe them!
Magic eraser and brillo pads sometimes work. I've not known limescale remover to work on this particular problem though it is the answer to under the rim issues.

Cif cream and a heavy duty scourer.

BabsGanoush · 12/07/2017 09:05

We have this. It's bleach marking it and turning it yellow like urine . Urgh.

daylilies · 12/07/2017 09:09

I agree with Babs, I have had this and realised it was the cleaner turning the white yellow.

80sMum · 12/07/2017 09:10

It's a white plastic seat? Unfortunately the staining is probably permanent. Time for a replacement seat, probably.

SillyMoomin · 12/07/2017 09:12

I had this op. It's the bleach sometimes staining it, in which case, you'll never shift it

Tbf, I just went and bought new seats from B&Q for £14....

Gooseygoosey12345 · 12/07/2017 09:13

I agree with a bit of limescale remover and a Brillo pad but sometimes they are stained beyond rescuing and you just have to get a new one (which is fun when you have a weird shaped toilet)

picklemepopcorn · 12/07/2017 16:22

I think steam gets it off. I thought it was staining or the surface finish of the seat having worn off. I assumed it couldn't be fixed. My new cleaner fixed it. 😳

Aquamarine1029 · 12/07/2017 20:27

But a new seat and then stay on top of keeping it clean. You won't have this problem again.

meladeso · 15/07/2017 20:52

Pan scourer got it off easy! Thank you all
