Do It Yourself Hard Water Stain Remover! Only TWO Ingredients!!!
Ok. Yesterday 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!
Let me explain a little. All of my water comes from a well. This well produces nothing but hard water. 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 potato as a stain remover, I decided to try some of the other crazy concoctions I’ve read about.
I found one 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 the bartender in me 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.
Do not wipe it! Let it sit! You will begin to see the hard water breaking up just like this…
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!!! You can even see where the paint has come clean underneath the glass!
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.
I hope this post saves you money on useless products and hours spent scrubbing till your arm falls off!
