Do It Yourself Hard Water Stain Remover! Only TWO Ingredients!!!
A few years ago, I showed you how to make your own glass stove top stain remover using some pretty unconventional stuff! That stain remover madness and victory motivated me to tackle my other huge eye-sore: the outside glass door! I decided it was time to rid myself of the dreaded hard water stain! And guess what, I decided to use things you’d never imagine to get rid of these stains! This awesome DIY Hard Water Stain Remover does wonders!
Let me explain a little. All of my water comes from a well. This well produces nothing but hard water. Hard water tends to be FULL of minerals and is always such a pain to remove. Even though I have a water softener system, I’m still plagued with horribly hard water!
Now, I’m very lucky to have an automatic sprinkler system on my lawn, but the sprinkler somehow manages to spray the door off my back porch. For the last year this thick, disgusting, layer of hard water has developed. It’s so bad, it’s almost impossible to see out of! See?
I’ve tried everything to remove it! No Windex, Scrubbing Bubble or Lime-A-Way could make this stain budge! After my success with a potato as a stain remover, I decided to try some of the other crazy concoctions I’ve read about.
I’m sure many of you find hard water stains all over as well! They can cover your car, any window at work or at home, and many other places. I have only tested this solution on windows so before trying it on the paint of your car, do a little test spot to make sure it is safe!
I can hardly wait to share with you what I found. It was one of those INSPIRATION moments that I seriously cannot get over how amazing it worked.
So, guess what?
I found a Hard Water Stain Remover that is AMAZING!! You’re going to love this one too…I promise!
Here’s what you’re going to need:
Yes, that’s it!
Now, I promise you we’re not making cocktails! I read about the cleaning power of Coke and then another article about the cleaning power of Vodka so I decided, “why not try both at the same time”?! (Light-bulb moment!)
All you have to do is pour a half and half mixture of Coca-Cola and Vodka into a spray bottle.
Now, spray your mixture on your worst hard water stain. Cover each part of the window or area that you are spraying. Make sure to get a good layer on it so there is enough to do the job.
After that, Do not wipe it! Let it sit! You will begin to see the hard water breaking up just like this… You just simply need to walk away and pretend that NOTHING is happening. Let the solution do the work for you. Come back in a few minutes.
Let your mixture dry on the surface you are working on. Chances are, the stain won’t come off in one shot! I sprayed my glass at least three times! After the third dousing, I walked away. This is what I found an hour later…
AWESOME right?! You can even see where the paint has come clean underneath the glass! It literally did all that work without me having to do ONE scrub. It honestly does miracles.
Just FYI, I did not clean the glass with anything other than the Coke/Vodka mixture before I took that last shot! I didn’t even wipe it down!
Now that the hard water has been “eaten away” you can resume cleaning the glass with your normal cleaner.
That is all you have to do! This Hard Water Stain Remover is awesome guys, trust me! You do not have to break your arm/back scrubbing until your hands are raw. All you have to do is spray and walk away! That is it!
I hope this post saves you money on useless products and hours spent scrubbing till your arm falls off! That is why I decided to do it! There are some things you simply cannot JUST SCRUB OFF. This hard water stain was one of them. I just sprayed (3 times), waited until it dried, and let it do the work! After that, I headed back to see that all the hard work had already been done for me. All I had to do was use my normal window cleaning product, I prefer Windex, to finish off the clean! I’m serious guys, this is AWESOME!
