How to Remove Hard Water Deposits

If you have hard water, you know how hard the deposits can be to remove from showers and baths. There are several commercial cleaners made just for this job; however, they are usually a strong acid and can damage other surfaces by discoloring metals or fading counter tops.

White vinegar is a mild acid and will do wonders on hard water deposits, without damaging other surfaces. You can put some in a spray bottle or use a sponge or rag to directly apply it to the deposit. Apply the vinegar and let stand for a few minutes. Sometimes you will see it bubbling, this is just the chemical reaction that is removing the deposit. Wipe away with clean water and repeat if the deposit remains. If you have any items that are being clogged by hard water deposits you can soak them in white vinegar and hot water. Hot water will help the chemical reaction happen faster.
