Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by damonord Clean toilet in 5 minutes
I have had a ring in my toilet for 2 years that I couldn't get rid of.. even tried sand paper. The pumice got rid of all the deposits in my toilet in 5-10 minutes. It is soft enough that it won't damage your porcelain but you will use a whole stick to do one toilet. awesome.

Expensive when compared to a tin of Ajax, because you just might use an entire stick to clean the hard-water ring from one toilet, but definitely worth it because it will clean it off completely, and Ajax won't do that.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by luvsdaheat Wears away way too quickly - not like it used to be
This scouring stick used to last MUCH longer. It must have been reformulated -- the composition looks and feels' softer', where it used to look and feel coarse; you could see different particle sizes - cinders..
I've used this brand for many years (not much choice, actually), and I'll give you an example of its performance just today when scrubbing a sink and toilet:
1. In the past, it would leave those 'streaks', or scrub marks, where you cleaned. They'd go away, of course, but were evidence that it was working.... Not anymore! This new stick leaves nothing like that.
2. The stick was ground down to about 2" long after 1 pretty clean sink and 1 toilet with the light calcium ring and average scum. I am not exaggerating one bit! It wore away to a nub that quickly.
3. Because it feels (is) softer, you don't feel the stick "bite" into the calcium like it used to.
I'm bummed and frustrated about this. I think that folks who use the product could expect to have a half-stick laying around, ready for use - but not with this current product (I am presuming the composition has changed, because it wears away like putting lipstick on a hippo!).
And, yes, I get that pumice is soft to begin with! Unfortunately, I believe this isn't the same Pumie.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by KP99 Works well, but kind of expensive.
My toilet was pretty disgusting. Gas station toilets had nothing on mine. I tried CLR Lime Remover, but it didn't do anything. Maybe if I'd bought enough to fill the bowl and let it sit for a long time it might have worked. Nylon scouring pads didn't do anything either. I was afraid it was time for a new toilet, but since I have an old bathroom with a yellow toilet, that wasn't going to be an easy task either. I was afraid to try steel wool or other metallic pads for fear of scratching. I did some googling and found out about the Pumie stick. I tried one and got a lot of nasty brown lime deposit off the bowl and it didn't seem to be scratching the surface. With 1.5 sticks I'd gotten most of it except some at the bottom of the bowl where it's harder to scrub. I removed most of the water from the bowl and poured in some vinegar and let it sit overnight. I scrubbed with the remaining half stick and that got more of it. The vinegar definitely helped, but I'll need a third stick and perhaps another vinegar soak to get it all. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because it seems like a pretty fair amount of work and it's fairly expensive. $7.50 for 3 sticks plus vinegar plus having to get in there and scrub my nasty toilet, but 4 stars ain't bad. So far it's the best solution I've come across next to buying a new toilet. Of course, if your toilet isn't as nasty as I allowed mine to get, it wouldn't require so much. I think I could have saved a lot of scrubbing and used fewer Pumie sticks by removing as much water from the bowl as possible and filling it with vinegar and letting it sit overnight. I really didn't use a very strong vinegar solution, but could still see that it helped. A stronger vinegar solution and scrubbing with a toilet brush every so often while it soaks would probably do a lot. You still would need the Pumie stick for stains above the water line.

I've tried everything to get the hard water rings out of a toilet! This pumie stick works amazing and now we don't have to replace the toilet! Well worth the money.

I tried everything get rid the ring in the toilet. Cleaners, bleach, scrubbing pads of all kinds and nothing ever worked. No matter how clean the toilet was it still looked dirty and was so embarrassing!! With this and not even 60 seconds later and hardly any tough work the ring was completely gone!!!!! I could not be any happier with this product, it is fantastic and way better than expected!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OCGirl If you want your toilet to look brand new...
I've had awful rust & calcium stains in my toilet for years & I've tried everything...CLR, Lysol, bleach, rust remover, Comet, you name it. Stains went nowhere. So, I just found out (like an ago) about this pumice thing when I did a Google search for "toilet stain remover." Hopped in my car & picked one up from Home Depot. I cleaned my toilet 1st, then put on gloves, wet the stick thoroughly in my sink, then went to work. Within 20 min, my toilet was sparkling like brand new!
-I recommend starting with a clean toilet bowl
-Wear gloves! It is a toilet bowl, afterall!
-Flush periodically. Debris from the stick may make it hard to see what you're doing.
-Ocassionally dip the part of the stick that you're using in the toilet bowl water...helps keep it wet & it'll scrub better!
