Pumice is volcanic rock that is created when lava and water are mixed. I knew that pumice is used to make lightweight concrete and that it is a major ingredient in laundry soaps and toothpaste. I was not aware that pumice is used as an exfoliant to help remove dead or dry skin.
Most of us that have ever heard of a pumice stone have usually been told it's to remove dead skin, as written above (I thought we all knew that). However, there are other uses for pumice stones that I probably would have never thought of. Did you know you can swipe a pumice stone across your couch, mattress or any other cloth surface to remove pet hair? Because you can. And it works so well. I could make a new dog or cat with the amount of hair those things get off the furniture. Seriously.
Did you also know that in some, not all cases you can use a pumice stone to remove rings in your toilet bowl? Yep, it does that too. Like I said though it doesn't get every ring out. If you've had one in your toilet for like ten years, then it probably won't get that out. But if its a fairly new ring, then just apply whatever cleaner you're using, and take your magic stone and scrub out the ring.
Its amazing how many common and sometimes random objects make helpful tools and tricks in your daily life. If you have a super furry dog or cat (like I do) and their fur being everywhere is bugging you (also, like me), then a pumice stone would be a great investment.
