Most people don't want to spend their Saturdays cleaning toilets, and many tend to procrastinate on this particular chore.
The result is that discolorations become worse, thicker, and harder to remove.
However, there's a tip that keeps getting repeated on Facebook as almost a miracle cure for discolorations and limescale deposits in toilets: dishwasher tablets.
You might think that this is a joke, but if it is, many people are in on it.
The suggestion is to drop a dishwasher tablet into the toilet and let it sit for an hour. After that, the deposits become easier to remove than ever before.
It's not just about aesthetics; limescale can also damage water pipes and other parts of the home, like heating elements. Although this is probably not an issue with toilets, it would still be nice to have a warm toilet seat!
One user, Susan Eykyn, writes that she used to use bleach but now also swears by the tablet trick. The author of the article has not yet tried this popular advice but is convinced it's worth a shot.
This genius trick for removing limescale in toilets has gained traction among homeowners, offering a simple and effective solution to a common household problem.
