Picture this: You gave your entire house a good scrub and it looks spotless. Well, except for a few pesky stains in the shower that simply won’t go away.
Those are hard water stains and are nothing more than a mineral deposits. While these stains won’t affect your health, they make your bathroom look dirty and unkempt.
So, how can you get rid of them?
Here are some solutions.
How to Remove Hard Water Stains
Numerous cleaning products on the market can help you remove stubborn hard water stains. But, if you are looking for a more natural solution, then vinegar and baking soda can come to your aid.
If you want to remove hard water stains from your bathtub or tiles, then you can mix one part water with one part vinegar to make a natural cleaning solution. Spray the mixture on the stains and leave it for at least 15 minutes. Then use a cloth to wipe the solution.
If you want to remove water stains from the shower glass, you can use the same water-vinegar solution or immerse the glass in warm white vinegar. Let it sit for about ten minutes and then add baking powder to the surface of the glass, where the stains are. Rub the baking powder gently with a cloth to remove the stains then rinse everything with water.
Think Long Term
While you can probably clean hard water stains with these homemade solutions, they can become permanent if left unattended for too long. And, if you live in an area with hard water, these stains will soon become a nuisance as they tend to reappear shortly after you’ve just cleaned them.
So, you need to think of a more long-term solution than scrubbing them the moment they appear.
