How to remove hard water stains on your glass shower doors.

The Country life has inspired me to find new ways to clean old things.

If like me you have a gungy, hard to clean shower doors, mainly because of hard water deposits and soap scum, I am going to let you in on a little known secret!

You have the tools right in your kitchen, without all the chemicals!
So buckle up here we go, grab your sponge and get ready to motor!

  Lemon juice is the answer. Yep Lemon, plain and simple!
Squirt it directly on the shower door, or I like to use a sponge, less aim required.

If you are fancy, and have a real live lemon you can cut it in half and scrub it on the door. ( I only ever have the yellow bottle) It lasts for years!

 OK so like I said Spray or squirt the lemon juice on the sponge, let the acidity of the lemon juice really overpower those hard water stains. Go lemon juice!

Get it all over the shower door. Then, make a paste using vinegar and baking soda. (I know I said it was going to be easy, but I lied, and your still reading)

This paste is about the consistency of a Soft Scrub, wipe down the shower,  you can even use a toothbrush for those corners and edges.
This is a great abrasive material that will really scrub out those hard water stains.

Now, use vinegar and water to spray and rinse. You will hear a little fizzing noise. This is because of the vinegar, and the baking soda, and the lemon juice they kind of bubble up a little bit when they're together.

Almost done,

 Wipe it with a paper towel.
Shammy with a soft cloth, and there you have it, your hard water stains will be gone, your shower is sparkling, with no expensive, chemical laden store bought products, just good ol' kitchen ingredients.
Your Grandma would be proud!

Hugs, my friends!
