Household Tip of the Week: Cleaning Hard Water Deposits

Here is a great idea for our area! We live in an area where the water is very hard, which means there are many minerals in the water. This causes problems anywhere water runs or drips such as: faucets, sink or shower drains, windows or shower doors, refrigerator water dispensers and the plates underneath that catch spills. These areas will often will accumulate hard water deposits that make them look dirty. The problem is it usually is hard to scrub off or clean up.
Here is a great solution! Soak a sponge or rag in white vinegar (use an inexpensive kind) and scrub. The water deposits will come off. It may take a minute and if the build up is stubborn soak it for a few minutes and try again! It will clean up the mess and you will have a sparkling clean shine!

A Scotch Brite pad and window cleaner also workes great on windows, and shower doors. Scotch brite pads can be found at "All a Dollar"!
