Bleach can help

You can also usebleach in case of very stubborn stains. In fact, bleach can be used as a substitute to on-the-market chemical cleaners when in a pinch. Half-a-cup of bleach with water should be enough to clean a toilet bowl. However, bleach should not be mixed with any other chemicals without properly reading the label or proper instructions. This is because bleach can be toxic when used in combination with other chemicals.

Use vinegar and baking soda

The combination of white vinegar with baking soda can be very effective in removing yellow stains, no matter if they are located inside your toilet or around your toilet bowl. Use a brush to coat your toilet with this mixture, let it sit and then flush away the stains and debris.

Vinegar is also super effective in removing stains caused by hard water.

Baking soda and Coke hack

As reported by Cleanup Geek, a combination of baking soda and Coca-Cola can also help in getting rid of yellow stains from the toilet.
