Removing Scratches from Inside the Toilet Bowl

A customer recently commented that they scratched their toilet bowl when taking matters into their own hands with a clogged drain. Seattle is an area of DIYers, so he went to his local home store and bought an toilet auger. Faced with new residential plumbing problems, he has asked if there is anything he can use to clean marks in the toilet bowl left from the toilet auger.

Toilet auger marks are made from the steel cable scraping the china surface of the bowl,  which deposit rust.

To remove marks left from a toilet auger:

• Remove the water from the bowl
• Use a little rust remover, such as CLR or ZAP
