Hard water stains on your shower doors can be an eyesore, especially in an otherwise spotless bathroom. You can spend hours scrubbing your shower door, but it just doesn’t look clean. However, with the right tools, those water stains can be removed. Here are three effective ways to clean hard water stains off your shower doors.
Mix one part vinegar with two parts water in a spray bottle. Spray, let sit for a few minutes, and then wipe off with a soft microfiber cloth. For particularly stubborn stains on the shower doors, you can add some grease-cutting dish soap, like Dawn. Also, be sure to use distilled white vinegar as that is the most effective cleaning vinegar. If the vinegar smell is too strong, you can add a few drops of essential oil, like lemon. It not only helps cut the vinegar smell but also smells clean and bright on its own.
Lemons and Baking Soda on Shower Doors
Lemon is a great cleaning agent. Yes, really: lemons. If you cut a lemon in half and coat the cut side with baking soda, it creates foam. The acid in the lemon reacts to the baking soda, and it does wonders when you’re trying to cut through some tough hard water stains. Rub the lemon with baking soda on the stains, let sit for five to ten minutes, and wipe off with a damp, soft cloth.
A magic eraser works wonders on hard water stains as well, and you will not have to scrub hard to make it work. While a magic eraser might streak the glass, it will get rid of those stains. You’ll be able to use a regular window cleaner to remove any streaks. Having a magic eraser on hand is perfect for cleaning not only shower doors, but many other bathroom surfaces, so you really can’t go wrong with it.
