is extremely powerful, dangerous to use in confined spaces without proper protective equipment (face shield, respiratory protection, rubber gloves and apron) and is a temporary fix for your stains. It will clean up a commode or bath tub shiny white, but it also etches the porcelain leaving a porous surface that will quickly absorb dirt and or staining materials. (That's why the existing fixtures are stained and rough feeling...time, water and chemistry have etched the original surface glaze of the porcelain).I suggest you find a way to replace the fixtures. Your worry and common sense are serving you well in my opinion. Luck, Kizmet
