        This also works well.
        Wal-Mart has it.

        Is it rust stain you have?
        Do you have a water softner?

        As Re-mdlr posted above.

        The Pumie, pumice stick, is probably the easiest and most successful way to get rid of the rings that I ever found. Usually the rings are hard water mineral deposits at or near the waterline (or below waterline) in the toilet bowl. The mineral surface is a bit rough, so stains stick to it...even iron from the water for rust stains. They are often a couple of dollars for a bar/stick at hardware, home stores and some large grocery stores.
        They last a long time too, just keep them wet and dipping in the water when using...sounds like they are scratching, but are softer than the porcelain...but harder than the mineral deposit.

        I used to have the toilet ring problem all the time because we have very hard water. The pumice stone always worked best for me. I never found a liquid that would fully remove a real toilet ring - not even industrial strength acids.

        After you get the ring off, make sure you coat the toilet bowl with that new self-cleaning coating. I did and I have been ring free for half a year and I don't barely have to clean it at all. You can find it at SelfCleen.com

        Good luck
