Say Goodbye to Hard Water Stains

Borewell water has large amounts of mineral content. After each use, it leaves behind a white residue, also known as a hard water stain. Over time, the residue builds up on various surfaces and fixtures. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this article, we explain two easy methods to remove those tough stains from your washbasin.

Let’s get started.

If you are using vinegar for cleaning purpose, always wear rubber gloves for protection.

With Vinegar

Step 1:

In a bowl, create a cleaning solution by mixing vinegar and water, one cup of each. With a sponge, apply the solution to the stained area. Make sure you evenly cover the stained spots. Let the solution sit for 15-20 minutes.

Step 2:

Clean the stained surface with a scrubber in a circular motion. Rinse the basin thoroughly. By now all the stains should be gone.

With Baking Soda

Step 1:

Keep a small bowl of baking soda handy. Dampen your washbasin with water. Now sprinkle the baking soda liberally all over the stained surface. Wait for 10 minutes.

Step 2:

Dampen a clean sponge with water and scrub the area thoroughly. It should form small clumps that take the dirt along with them. Let this sit for 10 minutes.

Step 3:

Rinse the basin thoroughly. Scrub the surface again with a clean sponge for best results.

Using either of these two techniques, you should be able to clean those stubborn stains easily. Bid goodbye to those hard water stains and you’ll be left with a neat, clean and shiny basin.
