Easiest hard water stain removal!



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!
