This post has very little to do with running, but I just had
to share my new discovery!(Okay, I didn’t
discover it – a running buddy shared it with me.) Anytime I learn something
that makes my life easier or better I want to tell the world about it. This is
the easiest way to remove hard water stains from porcelain and stainless steel
I have ever used.
Yes, I think I tried the bottle of Coca Cola in the toilet
bowl overnight. No, it did not work!
Pumice stones are effective, but they are messy and make a
terrible sound. Save them for removing foot callouses. (If you are a runner,
you have those!)
Strong chemicals are smelly, expensive, and potentially
hazardous if they splash or spill, or are ingested by small children. They
haven’t proved very effective, either.
Drywall screens. That’s right. I didn’t even know they
existed until my running buddy told me about them. She learned their usefulness
from a friend with a cleaning service. I was skeptical, but I gave it a try.
The screens were more effective and required less muscle
power than a pumice stone! They are also less abrasive. That’s exciting to me,
so I’m telling my friends. You can find them at your local home improvement
store. They’ll be near painting, wall repair, and sand paper supplies. They ought
to be near the cleaning supplies as well!
No more smelly splashing concoctions. Now more sodas poured
down the drain. No more earplugs to avoid the scraping sound of a pumice stone.
Just cut off a piece of drywall screen and buff those hard water stains away! You'll have more time for running or other worthy pursuits.
Seriously, it works!
