Hard Water Stains on Your Bathroom Tap? We have an Easy Fix!

We all want to keep our home shining and stain-free. However, sometimes hard water can make this task difficult, as it tends to leave stubborn stains around the taps in your home.

When hard water evaporates, what is left behind is limescale deposits, a white, chalky, hard substance that builds up around your tap and makes it look unsightly.

Though limescale is not harmful, it reduces the water flow by blocking the tap. Keep calm, there’s no need to worry.

Here are 3 simple steps to remove those hard water stains from your tap like a pro.

A mixture of vinegar and lime juice is more acidic and can be used for cleaning really stubborn deposits. Remember to wear gloves while using vinegar.

Step 1:

Start by applying some undiluted vinegar around your bathroom tap using an old but clean bristled brush. For easy application, pour the vinegar into a spray bottle. Alternatively, you can also use ½ cup of lemon juice. Remember to wear protective gloves whenever you’re using vinegar for cleaning purposes.

Step 2:

Let it sit on the stains for 15-30 minutes, depending on the stubbornness of the stains. If the stains are too stubborn, wait for an hour.

Step 3:

Using an old but clean toothbrush, thoroughly scrub the area. Don’t use a brush that’s too abrasive as it can damage the surface of your bathroom tap.

Step 4:

Once the stains have disappeared, take a clean rag and wipe the area to remove excess water.

There you have it! Hard-water stains can be difficult, but you must know how to attack those stains from the right angle to win the battle!

It’s simple. It’s quick.
