So... my lovely Kohler toilet has finally been fixed, but after it was snaked by a local plumber, it has a black (grease?) stain at the bottom of the bowl, where the water sits. The plumber suggested using bleach by pouring it into the bowl and letting it sit for a while before scrubbing and flushing, but that did absolutely NO good. Any ideas?

I would never sell my accounts a Kohler plumbing product as I read "the bold look" but never saw anything in print about Quality.

This is my opinion.

The poor public is brain washed by advertising.

Try soft scrub it may remove the stains

Soft Scrub didn't work; just tried it. The reason is that the stain is BELOW the water line, so any product's power is necessarily diluted. Perhaps I should try leaving Soft Scrub in the toilet overnight?

First you need to get the water out.

Use a spong or a a wet/dry shop vac.

Then try the SoftScrub.

If that does not work then try Barkeepers Friend.

You have to empty the bowl with a sponge or wet dry vacuum for it to work

Tried the Soft Scrub last night... got the stain partially removed. Shall I simply try it again, letting it set for longer this time? Or is there another product that will work well on this type of stain?

In addition to the abrasive it has a mild oxalic acid with has a bleaching affect.
