Water stains on glass shower walls
Q. I’m very happy to see that you are still publishing your blog. Very many people benefit from your knowledge, including me a few years ago. I now have a new problem; hard water stains on my shower glass walls. The well water seems to have almost etched the glass. Do you know of any way to fix this? In advance, thank you once again.
A. Try the most ecological way first. Spray lemon juice onto the glass, let it stand for 20 to 30 minutes and rinse off with a squeegee. Or cut a lemon in half and rub the stains with it, let it stand for 30 minutes and rinse and squeegee. Or spray white vinegar and carry on as above.
If this is not successful, spray white vinegar, let stand for 30 minutes and then, gently rub the stains with baking soda applied with a soft, non-abrasive pad. Rinse thoroughly and squeegee. You can also add lemon juice to the vinegar to increase its potency.
There are many commercial cleaners, but they need ventilation and should be applied with rubber gloves. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully. Some effective commercial cleaners are also toilet bowl cleaners, The Works, Kaboom, etc.by
