Hard water causes rust and gives stains to the shower door, faucets, sinks, and other appliances. Read the blog to know the protective measures to avoid stains and rust.

The bathroom is probably the most visited place in a home, however, it is the dirtiest one too if you don’t pay attention to it. Therefore, you always try to keep your bath clean and tidy. Sometimes, it is not you who is responsible for the bad shape of the bathroom. There are some hidden factors that most people are unaware of it. 

In our bathrooms, we face some hard stains and limescale buildup that tarnishes the look of our place. What is the reason behind this? The reason is the hard water in the home that is highly enriched with minerals, such as magnesium, calcium, and limestone that is perfectly safe to use but causes some damage to the place over time.

Whatever thing is in contact with the hard water, it causes trouble by giving hard water stains. It put stains and spots on everything including the dishes, glasses, toilets, showers, sinks, and even clothes too.

Keeping these problems in view, Fab Glass and Mirror decided to come up with a solution to protect your bath area from hard water stains. So, here we go.

Protect it from stains

Since most of the water in the home is used in the bathroom, it is the place that gets more affected by hard water. Hard water stains mostly occur on showers, sinks, and tubs. It typically appears as a thin film of gritty powder on the surfaces of glass, plastic, and porcelain, since mineral-based water is hard to dissolve. 

However, this problem is not just limited to your bathroom shower door or bathroom appliances. If the water at your home is so hard that it is not able to clean the soap, then it can leave stains on the dishes, clothes, and ultimately damage your appliances too.

How to remove hard water stains?

The easiest solution to deal with hard water stains is to buy an abrasive cleaner from a supermarket or market that can clear all the unwanted stains. Since you are here to get some inexpensive solutions for this problem, here are some simple home remedies that give you a clean shower door and remove the rust and stains from other materials too.

  • Ammonia and Vinegar

Vinegar is easily available in the pantry of every house. Get a dilute vinegar, add some ammonia to it, and create a mixture. This solution is a great remedy to fight the unwanted minerals at your place. 

  • Use lemon juice

Another easiest home remedy to kill the rust and hard water stains on the bathtub, sink, faucets, or shower door is to use lemon juice. Add some lemon juice into the spray bottle and apply it to the bathroom appliances and let it stand for a few minutes then wipe it off.

Note: This remedy may take a few applications to give results.

  • White vinegar

Get the white vinegar and pour a couple of cups into your toilet and scrub it to remove the stains. Another idea is to pour the vinegar into the tank and flush, it will take away the buildup.

  • Install a water softener

You can install the water softener in your home to get rid of the hard water stains. It works as a filtration service that removes the minerals from your water supply. Although it is a long process and a bit costly too, it gives proper results. Moreover, every home is not suitable to install a water softener.

  • Regular cleaning is a must

Yes, the regular cleaning of the appliances is a must-do thing. You can clean your bath appliances such as shower door, sink, faucets, etc. every week. However, if the scale builds upon a fixture, then it is very hard to clean it; and at times, it causes severe damage to your bathroom too. 

  • Dry it before it evaporates

The rust of hard water stains occurs when the water evaporates and minerals are left. So, you can avoid it by using a towel. Every time you use a faucet, shower door, or shower handle, dry the area completely using a towel. This remedy takes a bit more time while you are running to your office or somewhere else, but in the long run, it saves you a huge amount of money and time.
