Lysol Toilet Bowl Cleaner can be used to rid glass shower doors of hard water stains. Most people aren’t familiar with this shower cleaning hack.
But if you have stains that are left behind on your shower glass doors like the ones in the picture below you’re going to want to pay close attention.
If you have hard water where you live then you already know how difficult it can be to remove the mineral deposits, soap scum, and calcium deposits from your glass shower doors.
But it’s a lot easier than you think when you become armed with the right method.
If you want your shower glass door to look like the picture below then stay with us. (yes, that is the same shower door as in the picture above)
Hard Water Deposits
Hard water deposits are nothing more than calcium carbonate and magnesium deposits that are found in very hard water.
The higher the concentrate of these substances in your water source the harder you water tends to be.
This is precisely why all the limescale accumulates on your glass shower doors.
You could help minimize the amount of hard water stains that build up over time by doing a couple of things.
- Keep an exhaust fan on while taking a shower.
- Open the shower door when you are done showering and leave it open until the door dries.
Although this is a great idea most people just aren’t going to do it on a consistent basis.
When the layers of hard water deposits are thin it’s a lot easier to remove them from the shower doors.
However, as the layers become much thicker it requires vigorous scrubbing (sometimes for hours) just to get the soap scum and other deposits off.
In addition to that, you will probably have a difficult time keeping the solution on the glass long enough without it all running down to the bottom.
So you either have to keep reapplying more cleaning solution or completely remove the shower door and lay it flat while you clean – until now.
