It has stains on it....want to douse it with bleach but do not want to open up can of worms for hubby to fix the seal. He hates plumbing.
Any ideas...I did use clorox clean up beach to no avail...it works great on white sinks though if you let it sit for 10 minutes.

Ours gets mineral deposits from the various water sources used throughout the country. We use a toilet bowl cleaner made by Lime-A-Way to get rid of the deposits and stains. Don't use it every time, just when it gets bad looking.

Pretty sure it's plastic so you might Google what cleans stains from plastic. Read a thread way back which indicated that someone used their denture cleaner to remove the stain.

If those things dont work you might also try Bon Ami, which works surprisingly well on plastic, or car polish.

We have used paper towel with plain baking soda with some water to make a paste. It cleans the bowl real nice, too. Just be sure not to drop the paper towel into the holding tank.

Sometimes the mineral deposits get too thick to clean. We winter in AZ and the water is terrible at one park. The mineral deposits were so bad the flap wouldn’t hold water anymore. I had to disassemble and scrape the flap with a putty knife. I know it’s not the answer your wanted but it worked.

I don't remember what it is DW got but it's marvelous for removing mildew, mold and hard water deposits. It's in a purple trigger-pump spray bottle that sprays out foam. I assume she got it at Walmart, that's where she gets 99.9% of everything.
