Indoor plumbing is a gift for which I am profoundly grateful, even if I sometimes take it for granted.

However, one undeniable downside of the miracle of climate-controlled pooping is keeping those toilets clean.
And even if you're a fastidious bowl-scrubber, there are some stains (lookin' at you, rust) your trusty ol' brush just can't tackle.
You know those pumice stones you can use to scrape callouses off your feet? Turns out they can also get out rust and lime buildup! Probably don't use the same one on your feet, though? Unless you want all your friends to call you toilet feet.
But you do you, toilet feet!
The reviews are one thing, but what really sells
the Pumie (apart from its weirdly cute name) is the before- and-after photos. Seriously, look at this Cinderella story:

"Used this on my toilet and was amazedI We just rented a new apartment and no matter what we tried nothing worked. We tried everything. But with just a little elbow grease and the Pumie we were able to remove the deposits. See for yourself." —
Amazon Customer Oh, and don't worry if you don't have Hulk strength. Reviewers reported that it does the job even when powered by noodle-arms:
"Oh my WOW! Quickly I will say that I, weak little me, was able to scrub the impossible-to-remove ring out of my toilet in under two minutes! In the last seven years, everywhere we have lived has had hard water. The last place we lived had those rings really bad when we moved in. It took my husband over an hour to scrub it all off with a wire scrubber! We quickly found out that if you don't scrub the toilets EVERY DAY it comes back fast! After a few weekends away and coming back to nasty toilets all over again, we tried several different ways to clean it. Even tried a regular pumice stone, but didn't work nearly as well. The place we live at now had the toilets pristine when we moved in, but after being away for over a week, they became disgusting! I was dreading having to clean them for when we host Christmas this year. But now I'm actually excited! Will definitely be buying this over and over!!!" —

"Omg!!! It works!!! After having this toilet buildup I gave up on everything, but I saw this product and decided to give it a try... with a little elbow grease and some music blasting in the background I managed to remove it all!!! I can’t believe it. I’m so happy. I was so embarrassed when company came over and would see that, no more... yay!!!" —
Asdrubal Orantes This thing is so good, it inspires people to acts of unprecedented altruism (i.e., actually writing an Amazon review):
"Let me start by saying that I don't EVER review things. I'm the greedy consumer that reads all of the reviews and makes my decision to purchase things but never contributes to that valuable base of user-generated content. Consider this my payback for years of selfishness.
This product is awesome. For some reason the water at my apartment seems to be harder than warehouse floors and continues to leave a ring around various water sources, toilet included. I've honestly used every chemical in the world to try and correct it. But I simply scrubbed it with this product for 30 seconds and the thing looks new. What an amazing purchase! I can call off the reinforcements." —
Sorry in advance for this, but: hard water's about to get a little easier on the eyes!
