It can be a real pleasure to update your bathroom or kitchen because the faucets are so beautiful. The same could also be said of our showers, and even our toilets are something to be proud of in an interesting way. As you continue to use those items in an area where hard water is a problem, then some stains are likely to accumulate from mineral deposits and soap scum.

Hard water causes a natural buildup of deposits that are alkaline in nature. Due to the alkaline deposits being difficult to clean, they often tend to build up until they are a serious problem. Once you know the following three tips, however, you can simply wipe away the spots and keep your kitchen and bathroom sparkly clean.

1. Most people tend to run to the store and grab a commercial product that promises to get rid of lime deposits. You can actually do the same thing with some items you may already have in your kitchen. The first thing to have on hand is a lemon, but you would also want some white vinegar and plenty of paper towels.

Rub the lemon rind on the faucet and use paper towels soaked in vinegar to drape directly over where the lemon coated the faucet. The combination of acids will take about an hour to loosen the mineral deposits. Once the time has expired, throw away the paper towels and rinse the faucet clean.

2. White wine can be a real pleasure when you pair it with the right food. As it turns out, the acidity and alcohol can also help you to wash away water residue from the shower area. Empty a spray bottle and then put a glass of white wine into the bottle. Spritz the wine on the area that is experiencing a problem and allow it to sit for up to 10 minutes. Doing so will allow you to wipe the shower clean with the nonabrasive cloth. You will be amazed at how well it works.

3. If you happen to have a can of soda sitting around, it can do more than washing down your meal and making you burp. You can also use it to clean the toilet. The carbon dioxide buildup in the soda makes it more acidic than scrubbing with water alone.

In order to use this method, open a can of soda and pour the contents around the bowl to the areas where the stains are set. You can leave it in the bowl for up to an hour and then give it a quick scrub with a brush. A flush later and you have your toilet as clean as a whistle.
