Dealing with Hard Water Stains in the Bathroom
Hard water can leave behind tell tale mineral deposits in your bathroom – this brown or white scum comes from a build-up of minerals such as lime, calcium or silica. However, with a little bit of effort and some nifty cleaning solutions, you can banish those streaks and hard water stains in your bathroom. Read on to find out how.
How to Remove Hard Water Stains from Glass Shower Doors
- Cleaning shower glass and getting rid of hard water stains is pretty straightforward once you have the right tools. Try an all-purpose cream cleaner, such as Cif, and work into the stain with a microfiber cloth. Once all traces of the stain have been removed, rinse down with clean water, and then wipe up any remaining water with a dry cloth. Always check the label instructions before you use a new cleaning product.
- For an all-natural solution to cleaning hard water stains in your shower, mix together equal parts white vinegar and water (ideally filtered). Using a spray bottle, squirt directly onto the stain, and then wipe down with a lint-free cloth until the scale deposits have been removed. To tackle on-going hard water stains in your bathroom, keep the vinegar solution handy and spray it around the shower after every use.
