How to Remove Hard Water Stains in your Bathroom

Problems Caused by Hard Water:

Hard water is not bad for you at all, (it’s actually a nice way to get your minerals) but it’s a pain when these minerals cause stains and contribute to other cleaning problems.

What is Hard Water Stains?

  • Limescale is left when water is boiled away as occurs in kettles, heating elements or hot water heaters.
  • Water stains and spots are left when water spots or drips evaporate naturally.
  • Water rings are formed on surfaces when water is left to evaporate from the outside of a glass.

These stains will form on all surfaces. They are most visible on glass, porcelain, enamel, fiberglass, stainless steel, china, enamel, chrome, and tile. Your bathroom shower and sinks will require more frequent cleaning (descaling) to stay ahead of the heavy mineral build-up.

Following are some ways that you can try to Clean your bathroom.

Plain White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

White vinegar and lemon juice are mild and natural acids that I frequently use to remove stains. They take longer to work than the strong acids listed below, but they aren’t toxic and won’t burn or blind you either!

Vinegar and lemon juice are very effective cleaners and will loosen and remove hard water deposits from hard surfaces like tile and glass shower enclosures.

  1. Spray or wipe the area with a 50/50 vinegar or lemon juice solution
  2. Let the cleaning solution work on the stain for 15 minutes.
  3. Use a soft bristle brush or green scrubby to scrub away any stain that remains.
  4. Rinse thoroughly.

Vinegar and Baking Soda

Heavier duty stains can be tackled safely using baking soda and vinegar if you’d like to avoid using toxic acids listed below this section.

Vinegar is an acid and baking soda is a base (alkaline). Don’t use vinegar and baking soda at the same time. These cleaners are effective because each are at the opposite sides of the pH scale.

 Using them together will actually cancel the benefits of using each of them out.

  1. Spray or wipe full strength vinegar on the hard water buildup
  2. Let the vinegar work on the stain for 30 minutes.
  3. Sprinkle baking soda on the stain
  4. Use a green scrubby to scrub away any stain that remains.
  5. Rinse thoroughly.
