"The flush toilet looks like it could be better. Perhaps some vinegar will break up what looks like mineral deposits?"
Please attempt to re-clean the toilet and report results.
I've busted out the bottle of vinegar and went to work on the mineral deposits. Here is my adjusted toilet cleaning results. Those were hard water deposits you were seeing. I soaked some toilet paper with vinegar and packed it onto the deposits to slowly soften up and eat them away, then wiped with a rag. If needed here is the direct link to the initial submission.
(1 of 2) Its my husband's job to clean the wetroom everyday and I always wash the sink once or twice a day so nothing really builds up...however I did a bit of a more thorough clean today and let my husband off his duty of doing the wetroom. I caught a few patches where pink mold was starting to accumulate but it was minimal so came clean with just warm water and a giant tawashi. A few places where dust was gathering too. I used warm water and brushes for almost all things. Sprayed a little diluted citric acid for use in the toilet room floor (because I have 5 year old and 2 year old boys and there is no way there is no pee on the floor). Use a splash of alcohol on a rag to do the mirror which I never really let get dirty either so wasn't more than a few splashes to clean off. I will say that the house is new (about 2-3 years old and we've been here for 3 months) but I like to keep on top of everything before it builds up. Once it is built up it takes a lot longer to get off and you need harsher chemicals. I always only use water or diluted citric acid or baking soda or alcohol for all cleaning purposes. We don't own anything else.

Hi Mike, I certainly did NOT use muriatic acid. I used CITRIC acid, the one found in citrus fruits (though mine is chemically made and in powder form). It seems a waste to use actual fruit for cleaning. You use a teaspoon in 250ml of water and can use like lemon juice. It is also found in many processed foods. Very popular to use as a cleaning product in Japan.
