If you live in a hard water area, hard water deposits (limescale) can cause all kinds of problems, ranging from the unsightly build-up around sinks, baths and faucets, all the way through to completely clogging up your heating pipework, in which case, professional plumbing help is required. If we’re just talking the hard water deposits in the bathroom and kitchen, we can sort them out in no time at all, and for very little money.
I tried several hard water deposit busting products and they were all pretty nasty and not one of them did a great job either. The method below is all-natural, costs next to nothing and it gets excellent results!
How To Remove Hard Water Deposits With 2 Natural Ingredients
You will need cheap run-off-the-mill white vinegar and some equally cheap run-off-the-mill table salt.
In a bowl add a tablespoon or two (depending on the area being cleaned) of the salt, and then add a splash of vinegar, enough that you can form a paste with when mixed in with the salt.
Apply your salt/vinegar paste to the affected faucets and plugholes etc, be sure to rub it in a bit and then leave for 15-20 minutes. If you are having difficulty getting the mixture to stay on faucets, soak a paper towel in some of the vinegar and wrap that around the faucet to keep the mixture in place.
Now use a sponge or cloth to rub the mixture into the affected areas to get any stubborn last bits and then rinse and marvel at your shiny hard water deposit free faucets and plugholes.
Note: If you prefer you can substitute the vinegar for lemon juice. I have tried both and I got better results with the vinegar, but I realize that not everyone wants their kitchens/bathrooms smelling of vinegar
