I've used rust remover for this problem in the past, but be warned that it can remove some enamel if you're not careful.

Default Stained Toilet

I have used Muriatic Acid also known as Hydrochloric Acid. WORKS LIKE A CHARM!!! You can find it at just about any pool supply store. Just make sure you use gloves, mask and goggles.

I have never heard of a "whink" which has to be a play off of "whisk," does this work?

I wouldn't worry about some of the cleaners being to abrasive. If it was the shower, maybe. But if bleach isn't cutting it, than you need to move to the next step.

I used comet on my toilet seat and it rubbed the finish right off until it was black. I got a new toilet seat and though I cleaned it constantly because of my 11 year old, it still managed to get yellow stains underneath within a month. I cleaned it with Mr. Clean Disinfecting Bath Cleaner (6% Citric Acid, 94% other ingredients?- no phosphate) and it started leaving a white mark apparently disturbing the finish so I stopped cleaning it. The seat has chrome hinges so I don't want to use a hydrochloric based product since that would destroy the chrome. The whink appears to be for rust stains and these are not rust stains. Any advice?
