Have you noticed that your once bright and shiny tub or shower now has dark spots? You probably tried scrubbing and scrubbing away at them, but to no avail. They are still there. Why? The most likely reason these spots won’t go away is because they are hard water spots. Hard water is water that is high in mineral content and it is formed when water trickles through limestone and chalk deposits, both of which are largely made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates. Hard water is not a health hazard, but it can make soaps and detergents less effective. All you need to know is how to clean hard water spots.
How to Clean Hard Water Spots with Natural Cleaners
If you don’t want to use industrial chemicals, here are some natural ways to rid your tub or shower of hard water spots:
- Half water and half vinegar. Mix both items into a spray bottle. Spray the mixture onto the hard water spot, wait a few minutes to let it soak in, then wipe the spots away.
- Baking soda and vinegar paste. Spread the paste over the water spots, let sit for 15 minutes, then scrub the paste and spots away. Rinse off with water and be sure to immediately dry the area so the water doesn’t sit and form new hard water spots.
- Lemon juice. Apply fresh lemon juice to hard water spots and rinse after 10 minutes.
