How to Remove Hard Water Lime Deposit

I hate looking at the hard, crusty buildup on the porcelain sink and around the faucet. The spots are caused by calcium and other minerals that contribute to hard water stains.

Porcelain is a durable, long-lasting material, but its surface can absorb stains. The best way to deal with calcified hard water stains is to act proactively. The calcium accumulation can leave your porcelain sink looking dirty even after cleaning, but vinegar and other natural materials can safely remove stains. Here is what you need to do:

🛒 You need:

▪ a quarter gallon of white vinegar
▪ baking soda
▪ a bucket
▪ a spoon
▪ paper towels
▪ scouring pad

🧽 Instructions:

1. Pour 16 ounces of hot water into a bucket. Add 16 ounces of white vinegar. Combine the two liquids well.

2. Maintain direct contact between the vinegar and the sink by using paper towels.

After preparing the solution, soak the paper towels in it. Put paper towels on the porcelain sink areas that have hard water spots and scaly mineral formations. To soften the stains, leave the paper towels in place overnight.

3. Take the paper towels out of your porcelain sink. Put them in the trash.

4. Dip the scouring pad into the remaining vinegar solution. Rub the porcelain sink with the soaked pad to remove calcium deposits.

5. If you have hard water stains that are difficult to remove, moisten a sponge in the vinegar solution and sprinkle baking soda on it. It is imperative to rub the stain until all white film and scaly accumulation has been removed.

6. Using water, clean the sink. Take some paper towels and dry the porcelain basin. That’s all! Your porcelain sink should look like new now!
