Removing Water Stains in Your Tub

One of my favorite things in my home is my tub.  I love my tub!  But lately, it has been looking a little dull because of small water stains.  These water stains are due to hard water, which has a high mineral content.  Because of this, many cleaners are not that effective in cleaning the tub.

If your tub lacks beauty because of hard water stains, try these wonderful ideas to get that beautiful shine back.  All you need is water, vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice:

Mix equal parts of water and vinegar in a spray bottle.  Spray the mixture in your tub.  Wait about 3 minutes and wipe clean. 

You can also try removing those stubborn stains with a paste of vinegar and baking soda.  Just spread the paste over the stain and wait for about 15 minutes.  Rinse with water and dry right away so there is no water sitting on the freshly cleaned surface.  

If you love the smell of lemons, try removing the water stains by spraying lemon juice in your tub.  Don’t forget to spray near the faucets too.  Leave on for about 10 minutes.  Rinse and dry.

Your tub will look as beautiful as everin no time!
