How to Remove Hard Water Residue

Hard water residue can leave flakes and spots on kitchen and bathroom surfaces that are exposed to moisture.This residue is a result of a high concentration of chemicals--namely magnesium and calcium--in the water. Luckily you can remove unsightly residue left by these minerals. You don't even have to spend a lot of money on harsh cleaners. You can use inexpensive, gentle products that you may already have right at home.

Step 1

Fill a plastic spray bottle half full of white vinegar. Fill the bottle the rest of the way up with water.

Step 2

Screw the nozzle onto the spray bottle and shake the bottle gently to mix the ingredients.

Step 3

Spray the mixture directly onto hard water stains.

Step 4

Rub the stains away with rags. For tougher stains, you may need to use a nylon-bristled scrub brush. Toothbrushes can be useful in small areas that aren't easily accessible.

Step 5

Rinse thoroughly. Wipe the area dry if necessary.
