The morning shower experience is a real treat. But then limescale deposits and stubborn water stains come into view and cloud the refreshing start to the day. With a few simple tricks and the use of home remedies, you can tackle limescale and stains and bring the shower back to a high gloss.
1. Secret weapon against limescale in the shower: vinegar and water
Limescale deposits are the archenemy of any clean shower. But before you reach for expensive cleaning products, try this proven trick: mix water and vinegar in equal parts in a spray bottle. Spray the solution generously on the affected areas and leave for about 10 minutes. With a sponge or brush you can now simply wipe off the limescale. You can also easily get rid of annoying fruit flies with the help of vinegar.
2. Baking soda for stain removal in the shower
Stubborn stains, whether it's soap residue or rust, can spoil the joy of a clean shower. But don't worry, baking soda is your ally! Mix some water with baking soda to a paste-like consistency. Apply this mixture to the stains and leave it on for about 15 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly. If the drain is clogged, vinegar and baking soda also work wonders.
