3 effective ways to remove hard water stains from shower glass doors

Keeping the shower glass doors clean is complex due to high heat, continuous exposure to moisture, and the residue of soap and shampoo. But even worse than these are the minerals in the water, which can deposit turbid deposits on the surface, especially on glass. Even in well-ventilated bathrooms and places where you regularly wipe water after a shower, hard water stains can leave their marks, making your glass doors look dull and dirty. Let's learn how to remove hard water stains from the surface of bathroom glass.

Method 1 - White vinegar

Vinegar is one of the most effective and non-toxic methods for removing hard water stains. White vinegar is strong enough to handle stubborn stains, while being gentle enough not to harm family members. To remove these spots, mix a portion of water and a portion of vinegar together. Spray an appropriate amount of mixture onto a clean microfiber cloth, and then gently scrub the glass with a small circular motion.

The effect of vinegar is to break down mineral deposits, while the texture of towels is a mild abrasive. When scrubbing and washing the bathroom glass door, if the stains are relatively stubborn, it is possible to allow the mixture to stand longer. After completing these tasks, wipe off the mixture with a scraper and then wipe with a clean dry towel. For more challenging spots or additional decontamination capabilities, try using a larger amount of vinegar and sprinkle baking soda on the water vinegar mixture.

Method 2 - Lemon

If you want to use a natural, non-toxic method to remove stains, you can try using lemons. Like vinegar, the acidity of lemons helps break down hard water spots. Add fresh or shop bought lemon juice to a spray bottle filled with water, spray onto a towel, and then start gently scrubbing the affected area. Alternatively, you can cut the lemon in half and wipe all the flesh off the hard water stain. Soak the area, then rinse and dry with a clean microfiber cloth.

Method 3 - Cleaners Products

If you prefer to use shop purchased cleaners, you can purchase various hard water detergent products at your local grocery store or home improvement store. If you decide to use this method, please ensure that you carefully follow the instructions and confirm that the product you choose can be safely used for glass.
