Learn how to remove hard water stains from your faucets, bathtub, toilet, and more! It’s so easy, you’ll wonder why you didn’t do it sooner. Try either of these methods:
Epsom salt scrub. Ingredients: small mixing bowl, 1 cup Epsom salts, 1/2 cup baking soda, 1/4 cup liquid dish soap. Put all ingredients in a small mixing bowl and blend them well. The result is your eco-friendly Epsom salt scrub that will remove hard water stains in seconds!
Make a vinegar solution. Vinegar – cheap, natural, white vinegar – is the best tool you can use to combat those every day hard water spots that keep your surfaces from gleaming. Prepare a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle.
If you’re using a spray bottle that used to contain chemicals or other ingredients, make sure you wash it out thoroughly before you add the vinegar and water mixture.
Be sure to use regular white vinegar. Apple cider vinegar and other types of vinegar won’t do the trick.
For Tougher Stains try letting the vinegar sit on the hard water spots. If you let it sit and soak in for a few minutes instead of wiping it off right away, it’ll have more time to break down the mineral deposits holding the scum in place. Let it soak in for a good 5 – 10 minutes before you try to wipe it off. Use a scrub brush to loosen thicker deposits.
You can also soak a towel in the vinegar solution and drape it over the stained surface. This works well for shower floors and bathtubs.
