If in the end the limescale seems more difficult to remove than expected, the effect of baking soda, lemon or vinegar will be slower and we are not all endowed with patience. In this case, a little more manual labor won’t hurt! If you want a faster result, sandpaper is the way to go. Only warning just be careful not to damage the porcelain. Here’s how to proceed:

  • We start by polishing the mineral layers so that the superficial part is weakened. Focus only on the tartar plates and also opt for a medium grit sandpaper.
  • Once you have sanded the limestone, it is better to use a fine grit sandpaper so as not to damage the porcelain. Of course, we remain careful and stay on the areas to be treated, taking care not to touch the unaffected areas.
  • Flush the toilet as soon as the lime deposits are gone.
