Borewell water leaving yellow stains on your washbasin? Here’s a quick home fix!

Over time, unruly, yellow stains appear on your washbasin due to the hardwater residue.

Using ingredients easily available in your kitchen, you can get rid of hardwater stains from your basin.

 

With vinegar

Step 1:

Mix equal parts of vinegar and water to create a cleansing solution. Apply it to the stained area with a sponge and let it sit for 15-20 minutes.

Step 2:

Wipe the stained surface with a scrubber in a circular motion. Rinse the basin thoroughly.

 

With baking soda

Step 1:

Sprinkle baking soda liberally on the stained surface. The basin should only be slightly damp.

Step 2:

Scrub the area with a damp sponge. It should form small clumps that take the dirt along with them. Let it sit for a while.

Step 3:

Rinse the basin thoroughly and scrub the surface with a clean sponge for best results.

Using either of the two techniques, you should be able to clean those silly yellow stains and have a neat, clean and shiny basin.

Top Tip

While doing this, rub a lemon slice on the stains for an acidic reaction.
