I never thought I'd get so excited about a toilet cleaner, but I just discovered the Icky Stick by Groom Industries - a 100% natural pumice stone that removes rust, hard water, calcium, and mildew rings without any chemicals. Here's why I'm so excited:
For several years there were these couple rust spots right under the rim of my toilet that I've never been able to remove. I've tried scrubbing, using chemicals, everything - but still, no matter how hard I tried to clean it, you could still see those dang spots under the rim. Now granted, the only time you could see them was when walking into the bathroom from the hallway. And maybe nobody else noticed... But I did! And it never quite felt like my bathroom was clean with those stinkin spots. So to say that the Icky Stick is my miracle cleaner is an understatement!
First off, it was really easy - Just dip the stone in water and then gently rub the stain using a sanding motion. I may have rubbed those stubborn spots under the rim a little more than I needed to, but guess what? They're gone!! I ended up getting the entire area below the rim totally clean and free of rust stains and buildup. Plus I used the Icky Stick to clean the ring around the waterline that appears every week or so. For the first time in a long time, I have a truly sparkling toilet!
Since the first time I removed the stains under the rim, they haven't come back, but when they do, I'll be prepared. I do still use the Icky Stick every week on the ring that forms on the waterline. But I haven't used any chemical cleaners since I started using the stone, and my toilet looks great.
The Icky Stick works on toilets, pools, hot tubs, and ceramic and porcelain tiles. It shapes to curved surfaces; Mine ended up with a nub-type shape at the top since I constantly use it under the rim of my toilet. To clean it after using, you just stir it in clean toilet-bowl water to remove residue and then put it away. The one thing this product is missing is a place to store it, so I just throw mine in the toilet brush bucket I have next to the toilet.
The Icky Stick is $5.49 but you can get it for just $1 with coupon code: ICKY$1 at www.groomindustries.com. Plus, you'll save money by not buying any more chemical toilet cleaners!
