Hard water is nothing but water with high concentration of dissolved minerals (usually magnesium and calcium). Areas or locations that get hard water supplies are prone to white mineral deposits near taps, sinks, bathrooms etc. They are most visible on glass, porcelain, enamel, fiberglass, stainless steel, china, enamel, chrome, and tile. Getting rid of hard water stains can be quite tricky, but worry not! You can remove them all using a simple ingredient- salt. Below is how you could use salt to remove hard water stains:
LEMON AND SALT SPRAY
To make this spray you need 1 cup of lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 3 tablespoons of salt. Mix it all together and fill it in a spray bottle. Shake well. Use it to spray n surfaces that have hard water stains and let it stay for 10 minutes. Scrub it away using soapy water.
SALT AND VINEGAR SCRUB
In a bowl, mix together salt and vinegar to make a paste. Make sure it isn’t liquidy. As soon as you mix, apply it on the stained surface and scrub using a sponge. Take more product and repeat if required. Finally, rinse it all off.
FOAMING CLEANSING SOLUTION:
In a bowl, add 1 cup water and to it, add in 6 tablespoons of salt. Mix it well and add in 1 cup of liquid castile soap. Use this with a scrubber to scrub away hard water stains.
In a bowl, mix together equal amounts of salt and baking soda. Put the mixture in moulds and sprinkle little water only to moisten it up. Press them into the moulds and let it sir dry for 6-7 hours. Before using, take one cleansing bomb in a bowl and pour in vinegar. It will start to fizz. Pour it immediately on stained surface. Let it sit for 5 minutes and scrub it using a scrubber.
