A woman on a Facebook group has wowed internet users, recommending a pumice stone to clean the bowl of her toilet. The £1.49, eco-friendly hack came to light on Facebook group “Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK.”
“Recently I’ve been pricing up new toilets, plumbers and new floors, because the state of the loos just had to change. Then last week while listening to Jenny Eclair and Judith Holders, Older and Wider podcast with Aggie McKenzie they were talking about removing limescale from the toilet.
“A pumice stone! It doesn’t scratch or damage. £1.49 from my local pharmacy has saved me hundreds of pounds! You’re welcome.”
She advised others to use the pumice to scrub the limescale, using rubber gloves. One fan of the Facebook group commented: “Honestly thank you so much for this. I genuinely cannot believe it.
“I’ve even tried brick acid and that didn’t remove ours! It was clean within a few minutes with your technique.”
Another added: “Ohh my gosh, thank you sooooo much for this. Been in my new house since April and I’ve tried every kind of cleaning product and many many home remedies…if this works for me i’ll be over the freaking moon.”
