When removing hard water stains and limescale, the most common solution to use is an acid, such as white vinegar or lemon juice. These have been proven to easily dissolve away hard water stains in no time at all. However, there are some circumstances where is it not advisable to use an acid solution depending on the particular type of fixture or fitting being cleaned.
An example of this would be porcelain enamel. As it is a glass surface fused to a metal base it is advisable not to use acid cleaners on these types of surfaces. Porcelain enamel is acid resistant but not acid proof, the glass coating can be gradually dissolved by acids and expose the metal underneath and cause a lot of damage.
If you have a porcelain enamel sink or tub in your home, then I think the technique below will interest you as it gently removes hard water stains and limescale from your surfaces and leaves them sparkling like new!
Natural Formula to Use:
A mixture of baking soda and warm water
Method to Use:
1. Make up the mixture of water and baking soda
2. Scrub stains with a soft brush or sponge
3. Rinse thoroughly with water to remove all residue
When scrubbing the water stains be careful to rub gently as once the porcelain surface has been scratched it easily picks up any grease, dirt or soap residue. Then harsh abrasives really are necessary to remove debris that has become ingrained within the surface!
