Toilets and urinals: to remove lime and urine deposits use a special cleaner.
Apply the liquid disinfectant by squirting it under the rim of the toilet bowl and around it as well. Make sure that the cleaner reaches the area under the lip of the bowl.
Let the liquid start running down the sides of the bowl. Allow it to soak for a while
Scrub the interiors of the bowl with the help of a toilet brush. Brush the bowl thoroughly, so that you get rid of the mineral stains accumulated along the water level.
Flush the toilet bowl to rinse it. Continue scrubbing the bowl as the water drains from the bowl. Repeat the process of brushing, for a couple of times, to rinse the seat thoroughly.
The need of an acid bowl cleaner is determined by the hardness of the water in the area.
The routine use of an acid bowl cleaner is not recommended unless hard water deposits are present or where, as a result of not cleaning on a routine basis, a build-up results.
You may only need to use an acid bowl cleaner once a week, once a month or perhaps, in some areas, once every other day. Increase or decrease depending on the results.
