Are you like us and struggle with these ugly, orange water stains on your tubs, showers and sinks? Here’s our amazing solution to clean orange water stains without harsh chemicals.
These little green scrubbies from the dollar store or online for less than a fifty cents each!! I buy a pack and cut them all in half. Each half lasts me for a few months.
All it takes is a little bit of water, some scrub scrub scrubbing, and….
Really. It’s that easy.
I should note that if you have something funky going on with your water, it’s a good idea to get it tested. Ours has been tested and it’s just good ol’ fashioned well water. Completely safe, but even with a big softener system in the basement, still a little bit orange.
*update* Another great tool for well owners that I discovered recently is a cleaner called Universal Stone. I’ve been using this on my tub or anywhere else that I have orange water stains and it works maybe even a little better than the green scrubbies if you’re looking for something that’s still safe and environmentally friendly, but with a little more oomph. 🙂
Avoid Expensive Alternatives
Best news, with this newly-discovered secret, we can avoid the major investment in a whole-home filter system – for now, it will surely be worth it at some point – and look to install inexpensive, under-counter filter systems on select highly visible or hard to clean areas in the meantime. Areas such as the kitchen sink or the clothes washer now that we know how easily we can take care of the bathroom sinks and tubs.
But for now, not a big deal at all!
Try it. You’ll be amazed.
