Can muriatic acid be used in toilets to clean calcium build up?
Muriatic acid can be effectively used to clean calcium deposits, but extreme caution should be used. Only use it if you have plastic plumming, as it is corrosive to metal pipes used generally in older homes. Muriatic acid will burn skin and if it gets in the eyes, it can cause blindness. When using muriatic acid to clean calcium deposits in toilets, the results will be immediate. Your toilets will look brand new!
