Hard Water Stains – Get It Done – Ask THE Handyman St. Louis

Help! I have been researching how best to remove hard water stains from my glass shower doors. Most of the solutions I have found concern me because they have a warning not to use it on chrome. Since chrome surrounds the doors, it’s difficult to keep it from running onto the chrome. I hope you have a solution!

Great question! I’ve run up against the same issues. Here is what I have found to be the best way to take care of this. The best product I have found is CLR (calcium – lime – rust). It is available in the hardware stores, but you might even find it in the cleaning isle of grocery stores.

Although this product does caution about its use on chrome, I used it anyway, but used caution not to get the product on the chrome. I use a small bucket, along with a sponge and protective gloves. I simply wash the shower door with the sponge. If I do get any of the liquid on the chrome, I use a paper towel to wipe it off, then another towel to rinse the area. Once the glass is cleaned with CLR and dried, I then use an ordinary glass cleaner for the finishing stage. CLR is also a great product for the cleaning of shower floors.
