Default How to remove hard water stains

You can also try removing hard water stains with a paste made from baking soda and vinegar. Smear the paste over the surface of the stain and let it sit for 15 minutes. After the mixture has settled in, scrub it to clean the surface and rinse with water. Itís important that you immediately wipe dry because you donít want the water sitting on the newly cleaned surface.

Hope this will help also.

White vinegar - is the best tool you can use to combat those every day hard water spots that keep your surfaces from gleaming. Spray the vinegar on the hard water surface. Wipe the surface with a towel.

If it is not a medical environment, use vinegar mixed with bicarbonate of soda and borax.

Thumbs up Hard Water Stain Removal Naturally

Hard water stains, often called lime scale, are chalky white mineral deposits resulting from a build-up of alkaline in hard water.

Lime scale is a chalky white mineral deposit (alkaline) which is a result of hard water. It often occurs on faucets and in tubs and appliances, such as kettles and coffeemakers and can leave silver and chrome with a gray dullness. White vinegar contains acetic acid and is a great place to start for cleaning these pesky stains. Over time, these mineral build-ups can damage sinks, toilets, and tubs and make soap scum harder to remove.

Hi,
1. Make a vinegar solution - Prepare a 50/50 mixture of water and white vinegar in a spray bottle.
2. Spray the vinegar on the scummy surface - Vinegar has a pungent smell but it's completely safe to use on surfaces other than wood. 3. Spray the area thoroughly, making sure you don't miss any spots.
4. Try letting the vinegar sit on the hard water spots.
5. Rinse and squeeze the area clean - Then buff dry with a clean cloth. Make sure it's totally dry - otherwise, the water will leave more spots!

Hope this helps!

Default Cleaning hardwater stains

Although vinegar may work for lighter cleaning applications, it's going to be hard to use it commercially if you are running your own cleaning company where you are restricted by time constraints and the customer wants the job done perfectly.

You really need an acid based cleaner eg. sulfamic acid. This removes all traces of yellow and brown spots and also gets the job done with only 1 application.

Vinegar works but just takes way too many applications. Professional cleaners don't have the luxury of spending hours removing one water spots as the customer usually isn't willing to pay for the time you spend to do it.
