Is there any hope for shower glass with hard water etched stains?
Have you tried the product CLR?
@Dawn Anastasi I haven't but I will pick some up tomorrow and see how it goes. Thanks!
Try using vinegar and baking soda to remove the stains. Then try Detailer's Pro Series High Performance Glass Restorer. I have never used it on shower glass but it worked pretty decent on my fathers old car window. Be sure to try it in a little spot before spreading it out
try rainx too. That can do wonders on cleaning showers....and keeping them clean.
Try 220 grit sand paper (the metal screen kind) with a good cleaner. I have had good success with this but it can be pretty labor intensive.
CLR is a very good hard water deposit remover but it's pretty caustic on the skin and don't spray it indoors unless you want to die!
The best, non-toxic water deposit remover is vinegar. I saturate a cloth and put it around faucets and drains. After a few hours the deposits just wipe off. You can remove and soak a shower head overnight and it looks like new. Using on a shower door would work great if you could remove and lay down the door and soak a towel with vinegar over the whole door. The longer you keep the vinegar on the deposits the easier they come off.
The best way to remove the hard water stain ring at the waterline of a toilet bowl is a small block of pumice. You think it's going to scratch the porcelain finish but it only scrapes off the nasty stains and makes it look great. I wouldn't use pumice on glass though.
Hope that helps!
