Vinegar Hard Water Stain Removal

Save

Although beyond their control, homeowners often battle hard water with its accompanying dingy laundry and unattractive hard water stains. While water softening equipment and supplies cost many households a huge part of their budgets, a heavy hitter against hard water stains resides in most kitchen pantries.

Hard Water Stain Causes

Commonly Affected Objects

  • Showers, toilets and bathroom fixtures often present hard water stains in the form of white spots or film, but glass, china, porcelain and any other surfaces in common contact with water may show deposits as well.

Why Vinegar Works

  • Acid counters alkaline stains. At 5 percent acetic acid, vinegar removes deposits while working more gently on surfaces than stronger acids.
