Need to remove hard water stains from an Indianapolis kitchen or baths?

“Hard water” refers to water with high mineral levels — mainly magnesium and calcium. Those minerals are good for overall health, but unfortunately, they can also leave a chalky residue on shower glass and bathroom fixtures.

How do you get rid of it?

Here are some DIY tips!

Shower Glass — Create a cocktail of plain vodka and Coca-Cola. The combination of ethanol and carbonation is super effective for removing hard water stains. Just don’t press too hard or it might scratch the glass.

Faucets & Showerheads — Start by rubbing lemon rind on the faucet. Then soak paper towels with vinegar and hang them over the faucet for a little while. Finally, rinse and dry everything.

Toilets — Baking soda and vinegar works wonders for removing hard water stains from a toilet.

Dishes — Soak your dishes in hot water and vinegar. That’ll remove hard water stains like magic.

Countertops — Creating a paste out of baking soda and water, and then applying it with a soft-bristle brush, works wonders for removing hard water from countertops.

Install Water Softening System — To be proactive and remove hard water stains before they happen, consider installing a water softening system. That costs about $3,000.
