tread marks on the bottom of the toilet

I brushed as hard as I could and it would not come off. What can I use to get off?

I personally use a piece of fine grain sandpaper that is made for metal... It is obviously very abrasive so don't get carried away... You can dull the surface with it... However, even a mildly dulled surface looks far better than 'tread marks'...

I have used Bon Ami and Comet to clean marks off the bottom of toilets.
Scoop out standing water with foam cup or something you no longer want. Wear good rubber gloves and clean away. Flush when done and see results.

Cool

I use pumice stone, too.
It is solidified volcanic bubble "rock" that gets soft when wet, and it scrubs off things on porcelain without harming it.
Good luck!

I third that! Pumice stone is the way to go. It made my old American Standard Lexington 2007's like new again. It will not scratch porcelain. This stick is packaged under different names: "Pumie", "Heavy-Duty Scouring Stick" - all are made by United States Pumice Company.
