Step 1 - Apply Baking Soda

Begin this process by covering your toilet bowl stains with baking soda, although lime remover should work just as well. After giving the baking soda a few minutes to sit, use your bristle brush to give the freshly-covered stains a vigorous scrubbing. If the stains have been removed from your toilet bowl, you'll all finished. However, should the stains prove stubborn, proceed with the next step.

Step 2 - Apply Cola

If baking soda didn't do the trick, you may be able to lay waste to your toilet bowl stains with nothing more than soda pop. Start this step by pouring roughly a can's worth of cola into the stained toilet bowl. After giving it ample time to fizz up, use your bristle brush to once again thoroughly scrub the stained areas.

Step 3- use Borax

If the above steps did not work, take 1/2 cup of Borax powder and pour it into the toilet bowl. Leave it in overnight or for 30 minutes if you are pressed for time. Most, if not all the stains should be gone at this point. If not, use your toilet brush to scrub the remaining stains and flush to rinse.

By following these steps, and using items you likely already have in your house, you will be able to remove blue mineral toilet bowl stains in no time.
