Hard Water Stains or Spots, Try Pumice!!

To use a pumice stone to remove hard water stains, follow these steps:

  1. Prepare the surface: Ensure that the surface you're working on is compatible with the pumice stone. It should be a hard, non-porous surface like porcelain, ceramic, or glass. Do not use a pumice stone on delicate surfaces like marble or painted surfaces, as it can cause scratches.

  2. Wet the surface: Wet the area with hard water stains thoroughly. You can use plain water or a mixture of water and mild soap to dampen the surface.

  3. Wet the pumice stone: Soak the pumice stone in water for a few minutes. This helps soften it and makes it more effective for scrubbing.

  4. Gently rub the stain: Take the wet pumice stone and gently rub it back and forth on the hard water stains. Use light to medium pressure and keep the stone and the surface wet while you work. This helps prevent scratching. Avoid applying excessive pressure as it can damage the surface.

  5. Rinse frequently: Rinse the area frequently with water to remove any residue and to check your progress. This will also help keep the surface and the pumice stone wet, preventing scratching.

  6. Continue scrubbing: If the stain persists, continue gently scrubbing with the pumice stone until you achieve the desired result. It may take some time and effort depending on the severity of the stain.

  7. Clean and dry the surface: Once you have removed the hard water stains, thoroughly clean the surface with water and a mild soap to remove any residue. Dry the area completely using a clean towel.

  8. Rinse the pumice stone: After use, rinse the pumice stone with water to remove any debris or residue. Allow it to dry completely before storing it for future use.

Remember to always test the pumice stone on a small, inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn't cause any damage to the surface. Additionally, avoid using a pumice stone on surfaces that are sensitive to scratching or prone to damage.
