If you have a septic tank you might want to have someone come look to see if your septic needs emptying. If you take care of it and feed it RidEx every month you should not have to.. If you don't have a septic tank, I'd call the local water municipality.
Follow the care label instructions. Just wash it as normal. By funking it up with special cleaners, that will only make itworse. Just toss it in the washer, warm, or even cold wash. HOTwill "set" the stain in. I would suggest pre-rinsing it first in a sink/basin... just putwhatever it is on in the …washer, wash it then put it in the dryer. if you think it's that gross, then repeat a wash cycle BEFORE youdry it. Easy. (MORE)
Answer . that's easy just use a cleaner called Mr Muscle or you can use another cleaner called Demestos.
try using Dial soap (the old gold kind) as a spot remover. Dampen the stain, rub the soap in, and hand scrub before you put in the wash. Wash like normal.
Behind and/or under the toilet is a shut off valve. You only need to turn it like turning the faucet off. If that doesn't work, you'll have to turn off the main valve located outside the house in some cases.
You either just flush it down (this may take a LONG time) or, unfortunately, hand-wash it. XP
I have used Cif (in England) Soft Scrub (in America) or any cleaning agent with grains in that can scrub the stain off. This is the only way. For a more natural cleaner, try a paste of bicarbonate of soda, this may work too, but Soft Scrub definitely did the job when I had to clean the toilets in a …house I moved into. This basically scrubs the stain off so if the toilet is colored it may take the color off ! (MORE)
Someone may have used color dye in the machine. Make sure to separate the color clothing from the white. Or get a live in girlfriend to help you do lundry.
If the stained clothes went through the wash, some of the staining may not come out. If there is any waxiness, start by scraping off as much chapstick as you can without damaging the fabric. Then rub both sides of the stain with detergent and wash it in hot water.
The age of a toilet doesn't matter. As long as it retains its integrity it is okay. The insides of the tank workings may need replacing. And the seal around the base of the toilet may need to be replaced as well.
Skidmarks account for 84.7% of all brown marks in a toilet bowl . Followed in a distant second place by Iron in your water.

For toilet bowls add 1 liter of vinegar to the bowl itself and scrub with a toilet brush to dissolve away hard water stains that has built up over time. Also, by adding 1 liter of pure vinegar to the cistern (tank at back of toilet) this not only removes any stains from there but also removes any fr…om underneath the rim on the next flush!. Sometimes stains are extra stubborn - for this make a paste of white vinegar and baking soda and scrub gently with a soft brush or sponge. Never use an abrasive cleaner like scouring pads, powders or steel wool as this will scratch the surface. (MORE)
If there are urine stains in your toilet bowl, pour a generousamount of bleach into the toilet bowl and under the rim, then leaveovernight. The next morning, flush the toilet and pour more bleachinto the bowl and scrub with a toilet brush.
a toilet is about 50 millon years old even though they were not always flushing but they are 50millon years old. kayleigh. i don't agree that a toilet is 50millon years i think a toilet is about how long you had it for example:if you had a toilet for 5 years then the toilet is about 5 years
Barkeeper's Friend sold in most grocery stores will rub away most stains, even the ones created by using a lousy toilet brush that has scratched the inside of the bowl - you just gotta turn off the water at the wall, fluch, then sponge out the water to get to the aluminum looking scratches. If it is… a CALCIUM buildup, boiling vinegar or CLR cleaner may help. Most cleansers, dropped out the abrasive when home builders started putting in these plastic fake marble countertops in the john. Oh, if your plastic fake marble top bathroom countertop shows wear, scratches or has cigarette burns on the side near the bowl - do not freak out. It can be refinished. Go to an auto parts store and buy some RUBBING COMPOUND and some POLISHING COMPOUND and either rub the heck out of the countertop or get smart and buy a buffer. . Voila - looks brand new with a mirror like surface - just don't tell your neighbors the trick. Make 'em buy new countertops. (tee-hee!) (MORE)

yes you can. You need to prep the wood correctly first. Start off be applying chlorine to the wood and pressure clean, running the length of the boards so you dont make marks. Stopping in the middle will make a mark so run fully across. Then apply a conditioner to the wood, Behr conditioner for deck…s to open the pores on the wood and brighten back to original, in areas that the stain has wore off. Then apply 2 coats evenly. After first coat, apply second when the first is tacky. If not the stain will repel the second coat. If your deck has existing stain and spots have wore completely off, you will see the difference, so go darker, of go to a solid for of stain, percect consistance, lasts long time. Remember stain semi or solid, no paint. Hope this helps. Jason . I would not recommend staining over stained wood. First of all, it all depends on the type of stain that is covering the wood deck. There are three types of deck stains out there: . Oil-based . Latex-based . Waterborne Although it is okay to stain on top of oil-based and latex-based stains, there is a possibility that the result will be darker than you expect it to be. Personally, I would never stain on top of the old stain. I would remove the old stain first. To remove the old stain . Clean the wood from any dirt or mildew (use pressure-washer for that) . Apply stain stripper with the use of a regular brush and let it there for up to 15 minutes. . Use a hard bristle to take the old stain off. . Neutralize the stain stripper either with a ready made chemical, or by using a mixture of vinegar and water. After that you just need to apply a new coat of stain. There is no need to sand the wood surface as stain stripper does the job pretty well. Source: http://www.elgatopainting.com/how-restain-wood-deck/ (MORE)
Assuming you have tried all the normal toilet cleaning products, the last resort is to use muriatic acid. It is normally used for adjusting the pH in swimming pools and can be found in the pool section of your hardware store. However, this is dangerous. You must use long rubber gloves and LOTS of ve…ntilation. I have used this myself but only with the toilet outside while I was remodeling the bathroom. It works like you wouldn't believe though. Ten year old toilet looked like brand new.. White vinegar has been proven to work time and again to remove hard water stains.

It is not easy! Try alcohol soaks if it does not hurt your fabric. Also, you can lit the area sit overnight in something like easywash.
Turn off the water to the toilet and flush so that no water is in the bowl. Add CLR (available at most stores) and let it sit for the rec commended time. Brush to clean. Turn the water back on and flush.
because our hands would be full of bateri, and if we eat after we would be eating bacteria from maybe our feices. catherines coool! haha
yes you can and the stain can change colors if there is a juice stain for example thats red and a grass stain the stain color could change
Acetone is added to remove the violet stain. Then the last stain is added. If the bacteria is a Gram+, the acetone can not remove the violet.

u can remove the orange stain around your toilot by leavin bleach in there for about and hour or two then scrubbing it out
Not if you care at all about the life of the poor cat. Cats don't normally need to be bathed, anyway. They are very clean animals. They only need to be cleaned if they get into grease or something they can't remove from their own fur.
Yes its very simple. Put the cat in the toilet and flush it. this provides a rinse. Then open the lid and add dish washing liquid. Flush 3 times. Hang the cat and the toilet on the washing line. The cat and the toilet will be sparkling in no time. This is not from Samantha Thompson.
Because there are millions and millions of germs on your toilet multiplying at a very rapid rate. Germs make us sick. Therefor we wash our hands to get rid of the germs.
Women remove their tampons above the toilet this means that blood leaks out of their vagina.
You are probably referring to a bidet, which is not a toilet, but a fixture of similar shape that typically sits next to the toilet.
The biggest difference from an old toilet to a new one is the water consumption. An older toilet can use up to 16L of water per flush! A modern toilet only uses between 3-5L per flush. A big money saver!
Spray the stain with Mela PreSpot then use 1/4 oz of MelaPower plus 1/4 oz of MelaBright to wash by hand. Email me if you want to know how to get these awesome products
No. Time, warm water, and drying the garment before the stain is removed can set stains in.
The best would be to use a bleach-based spray or liquid. the recommended product differs from country to country so just make sure it is recommended for toilets.
because it will wash all bacteria off your hands for when you eat food and do anything
okay, it is hygienic for one, there could be all sorts of bacteria on your hands after using the toilet, especially for a male who is peeing, you can get all kinds of diseases from not washing your hands properly. you could also get worms (which isn't very fun) and especially if you are about to eat…! do you really want what is coming out of your anus or urethra in your mouth? its disgusting.

Mascara stains are not likely to come out in the wash alone, unless you pretreat them. Start by scraping off as much mascara as you can. Then use a pretreatment, which you can find at your local grocery store, by following the directions. Rinse the stain, rub a little liquid detergent into it, and t…hen wash normally. (MORE)
Hand washing is not always better than machine washing, but when it comes to stains it is likely a better choice. Machines use hot water, which can set some stains, and wash many clothes at once, which can re-deposit stains on another piece of clothing. Hand washing allows the washer to treat each s…tain depending on the type of stain and the fabric. (MORE)
What is causing when the toilet is flushed or when the water is shut off at the sink faucet sound like door knocking come from shower wall upstairs main wash room thank you?
It sounds as if you are describing "hammering" caused by air trapped in the supply lines. There is a "hammering" add on for your pipes that can be installed by a DIY person yet usually a plumber might be your best answer. Water travels through supply lines faster than you would suspect and the abrup…t stopping (when a faucet is closed) can have the water continue, momentarily, causing the sound you mentioned, the device helps cushion the water/airflow.

I manage to get rid of stains in many toilets with chlorine (as in granular chlorine, used in swimming pools. ) I have also used a product called CLR with good results. After getting rid of stains, put a cleaner tablet in the tank to avoid further staining.
Partially obstructed drain or vent line. Could also be improperly tied into the toilet drain/vent. In most codes wet venting for more than 1 fixture unit (i.e. a sink) is illegal. Washing machines have their own section of code due to suds relief, air breaks, and the fact that they discharge a large… amount of water into the drainage system very quickly. (MORE)
Hard water is a term that means the water has lots of minerals - hard water stains are solid deposits of those minerals left behind when the water evaporates. The water initially dissolved those minerals because it was acidic - a weak acid such as lemon juice or vinegar is usually pretty good at rem…oving these stains; or a scrubbing paste made of baking soda and water.

Can sperm be washed off a toilet seat cause you ejaculated on the toilet seat and washed it with soap and water and dried it but if your toilet m.y is wooden and some could get into cracks on the seat?
It is not a problem, don't worry about it. Any small amount that might possibly have got into a crack will quickly die and dry up. Even if it was fresh and a female were to come into contact with it, she can not get pregnant from it.
Gently scrape (the method of using a scraping tool to gently lift off excess solid or caked-on stains) any excess spill. Sponge (the method of using light strokes with a dampened pad working outward from the center of the stain) the area with a dry-cleaning solvent, K2r Spot Lifter (except on acetat…e blends) or Afta Cleaning Fluid. Apply a dry spotter to the stain and cover with an absorbent pad dampened with dry spotter. Let it stand as long as any stain is being removed. Change the pad as it begins to pick up the stain. Keep both the stain and pad moist with dry spotter. Flush (the method of applying stain remover to loosen staining materials and residue from stain removers) with one of the liquid dry-cleaning solvents. If any stain persists, use an enzyme presoak (follow directions on label; caution, some enzyme presoaks are not designed for use on wool or silk). Cover with a clean pad that has been dipped in the solution and wrung dry. Let it remain for 30 minutes. Add enough solution to keep the area warm and moist, but do not let the stained area spread. When no more stain is being lifted, flush thoroughly with water and let dry (MORE)
Wow... this just... wow, its like asking what happens to the soap when you do your laundry. it just mixes witht the water, and disperses. Actually...no, it doesn't. According to the Wikipedia page entitled "deinking": "The unusable material left over, mainly ink [emphasis added], plastics, f…iller and short fibers, is called sludge . The sludge is buried in a landfill, burned to create energy at the paper mill or used as a fertilizer by local farmers." (MORE)
Unless you feel like eating your own sh*t I would highly recommend washing your hands.
I wouldn't suggest it but if you did it you're hands wouldn't get clean. They'd get wet, but not clean.
This is because the hands are the most exposed part of the body that are carriers of germs that can later cause infection. The toilet carriers a lot of germs on the flash handle or door knobs. This is because the toilets are used by more than one person. This germs can cause infections. That is the …reason as to why one should wash hand should be washed after visiting the toilet. (MORE)
