The Best Way to Combat Water Spots

September 24, 2013 | By | Comments (8)


If you have a shower with a glass door, then there’s a good chance you’ve got water spots. How to get rid of them once and for all? The only thing you really need is a bottle of distilled white vinegar.

Simply soak a few paper towels in the substance, then lay them over the splotches in a single layer. Let sit for 15 minutes, remove the towels, rinse the area, and wipe dry. You won’t believe how the door sparkles!

    How would this work exactly without taking the shower doors off the hinges, since you obviously cant layer paper towels sideways!

    Highly recommend wearing rubber gloves when doing this unless you want to smell like you’ve been dying Easter eggs all day. :)

    I believe you would not want to do this if your shower has marble.

    Lynn – You are correct. Any kind of acid, of which are vinegar and lemon juice, will dissolve marble, which is calcium carbonate.
