Re: UGH :***(

Orange stains are definitely iron & possibly manganese . we have it, too.. though luckily not to an extreme degree. We live on a lake and the minerals in our water is ridiculous. I scrub our toilets and tubs once every couple of weeks cause the buildup is so bad. I agree a filter system or a softener is probably the only thing that will help..

Not sure what your laundry detergent is, and I'm not about to start this war but if you don't have a water softening agent or a filter system, try using a detergent that's compatible with hard water...
