After cleaning windows with tap water it can leave hard water spots or stains on the glass which we all know do not look particularly appealing! This is likely to come from the tap water that has been used containing dissolved calcium or magnesium minerals that have been left on the surface of the glass once the water has dried. This is a common problem and is easily solved.
Knowing that these minerals were present in the water initially, and that they can be removed using an acid, is the first step to getting rid of them. Secondly, it's a matter of knowing how to get hold of an acid that is readily available. Well, the chances are you have the solution in your cupboard at home right now. Vinegar is a great household cleaner and has been used for centuries to clean a variety of things, and can be used to easily get rid of hard water stains and limescale.
Below is a tried and tested method that has been used time and again to get rid of stubborn hard water spots and stains from windows and has been proven to work.
Natural Formula to Use:
1/2 liter white vinegar and 1/4 liter of water
Method to Use:
1. Fill a clean spray bottle with pure vinegar
2. Spray the vinegar/water solution over the window and wait for a few minutes
3. If stains are stubborn spray more solution and wait a while longer
4. Scrub lightly with a soft sponge or cloth and rinse
Tip: - Try to deal with the water spots straight away as the solution works best with newly formed or mild hard water spots.
