Car polish sounds interesting.
Softscrub - could you ask the wife, which one? They have 6 different cleaners - gel, no gel, Oxi, w/bleach, without.


She uses the one with bleach but for cleaning they all work about the same. The key is it's very very mildly abrasive kinda like toothpaste as mentioned above.

I have used Bar Keeper's Friend. It works well. Most of the time, I am too lazy to do a really good job and just spray Windex around and hope for the best. [emoticon]

Actually, in the toilet, I use a little liquid car wax -- I think it is called Nu Finish. (Too lazy to go to the garage to check --- I am sensing a theme here.) . You wipe it on, wait till it dries, wipe it off.

It does help the staining a little bit. More importantly, it creates a slick finish so that anything that happens to go into the toilet slides right into the drain. And that's a good thing, to quote Martha Stewart, who probably has never waxed the INSIDE of a toilet. (She might've done the outside, though.)

Thetford makes a cleaner called Aqua Klean (sp?) which works well on cleaning all things plastic. Plastics and abrasives of any kind do not mix!

I use a toilet brush and bleach water. I do this just prior to a dump so that bleach is not sitting on the seals anywhere. Then once a year or so we use a toilet bowl cleaner that is for mineral deposits. So far so good and it keeps the seal holding water in the bowl.

Not about stains, but I was having a terrible problem with smell. I tried various cleaners, pet stain remover, isopropyl alcohol, etc. Finally I tried vinegar and it worked instantly! So I just thought I'd post this in case anyone else needed to know.

When I open the blade/shutter, smell from the tank dwarfs any other smell. The only time I notice smell with the blade closed is when I bend down to make a (un)holy cross of toilet paper before #2, if you're familiar with this trick. Vinegar (with baking soda) has its place for sure.

We have had our camper for quite a few years and it has been used a lot including 2 years as full timers. Our rule has been no scrubbing on the toilet, ever. It is still like new. No stains. No scratches, very smooth and the waste just slides right off. One you scratch it, stuff will stick.

Using Clorox Toilet Wand to clean with. Use Odo-Ban from Sam's Club for cleaning and putting in the black tank to control smell and helps clean it...

x3 on Soft Scrub with bleach or Soft Scrub Lemon Cleanser for that fresh lemony smell.


X4
Previous owner of my first MH kept every single piece of paper/documents.

Looking thru them all, he even saved the sticker that was on the toilet!

It said to use only Softscrub! [emoticon]

Almost, I'm not familiar. What is the purpose of the Cross of toilet paper?
