Hard water stains are an unfortunate reality in just about any home. They can show up on your sink, counters, tub and even your toilet bowl. Although you might scrub and scrub, these stains are difficult to remove without using the right tools and the right methods.
Hard water stains are formed on porcelain when calcium, lime. and mineral deposits build up on the surface over time. In many cases, just scrubbing with water or soap alone won't take the deposits off. This irritating film takes some work to get rid of.
If your porcelain surfaces are starting to look cloudy or dirty from hard water, use these ideas to remove the stains:
Try to prevent hard water stains from forming in the first place. If that isn't possible, there are some products that you can, for example, spray in the shower to help stop stains from developing into big problems. Clean your porcelain surfaces often so the hard water stains don't have a chance to build up and become more difficult to clean.
