Posting on Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one woman asked for advice on how to remove “brown stains” in her toilet bowl after moving into her new property.
Karen Adams wrote: “When we moved into the property where we are now, the toilet upstairs has terrible brown stains in the bottom of the bowl and looks like it completely removed the ceramic.
“I’ve tried all sorts but it won’t shift, any ideas would be great thanks.”

Posting a picture of the toilet cleaner, Sarah Degabriele commented: “This is brilliant for getting the brown stains off and you can buy it in Poundland.
“Just squeeze it all around the bowl and put a bit extra in the bottom and leave overnight.”
Debbie Simpson replied: “I asked this question couple of weeks ago and was advised to use black Harpic.
“Amazing results, put it in the toilet bowl overnight, did this over a few nights and it’s sparkling now.”
Alison Perkins added: “Black Harpic! We had a similar issue when we moved to our new home. Black Harpic has cleared it now.”
Harpic Powerplus toilet cleaner can be picked up from Poundland for £1, as well as local supermarkets such as Asda for £1.05.
Karen responded to her post the following morning to share how she managed to remove the “brown stains” from her toilet bow.
She said: “Morning! Just thought I would pop an update on. I used the black Harpic last night, and it has removed almost all of the stain!
“Really impressed and thank you all for the tips.”
