What to use on this toilet bowl...(photo warning)
I've read the very informative post about toilet bowl cleaners/how to get rid of the ring.
I don't have a problem with a ring, but DO have a problem with the very very bottom of the toilet bowl, that little inverted "valley" in the bottom of it and it's brown (ick). See photo (how can you miss it?) Once I get rid of this "stain" I'll remove the photo cuz it's just too ewwwww for me!
I've gloved up and emptied the bowl as much as I could, and used the following (not all at once): Bleach, Scrubbing Bubbles, white vinegar, magic eraser, Bon Ami, Ka-Boom, Awesome, Castile Soap, and something called ZEP.
I've used a plastic scrubbie, Golden Fleece, microfiber cloth, and Magic Eraser, all with elbow grease.
When I'm scrubbin this area, it's like the porcelain is embossed because I can feel the texture through my rubber glove and whatever other scrubbing choice I'm holding. If the area is always wet--because it's in the bottom of the toilet-what IS it? (Please don't say poo--how would poo get there and be all stuck to the porcelain when it's always wet AND we flush when we're done!???)
