Hard water stain removal

There are some really simple ways to remove hard water stains and limescale to make your fixtures and fittings sparkle like new again!

If you have used a scrubbing brush, expensive cleaners, harsh bleach or abrasives to remove hard water stains in the past, and they have just not worked...well, why not go natural? Using common household ingredients you already have in your home, you can easily remove stubborn hard water stains using proven techniques, and make your surfaces shine like never before!


Baking soda (optional)

Soft cloth
Soft brush or sponge (optional)

Step 1

Get some warm water. Put some warm water into a bucket.

Step 2

Juice the lemon. Squeeze the juice from the lemon. Sieve the lemon juice well to remove any pulp.

Step 3

Mix a cup (240ml) of warm water and white vinegar, plus a tablespoon (15ml) of the lemon juice.

Step 4

Fill a clean spray bottle with the solution. Use a funnel to pour the mixture into a spray bottle.

Step 5

Spray the mixture freely over the surface and wait for a few minutes.

Step 6

If stains are stubborn, wait a while longer...or spray some pure white vinegar on its own.

Step 7

Simply wipe away with a clean cloth to reveal the shine.

Sometimes, stains are extra stubborn. In this case, make a paste of white vinegar and baking soda and scrub gently with a soft brush or sponge. Never use an abrasive cleaner like scouring pads, powders or steel wool, as these will scratch the surface.
