Hard Water Spots

Dear Home Ec 101,
No matter what I do, the hardwater spots on my shower and tub keep coming back?  What am I doing wrong?

Well there are a couple of options.  You could invest in a water softener or be super diligent and use a squeegee after every shower.

Unless your family is unusually cooperative, these spots are simply a fact of life.  If you wipe down the walls frequently with diluted vinegar you will keep those annoying spots from becoming difficult to remove.

In all honesty, it’s these never ending chores that I find most annoying.  Take heart, you aren’t going to suddenly find a Home Ec 101 Seal of Disapproval plastered on your shower stall anytime soon.   Hang in there.

    To Speckled in Spencerton:
    Like Heather, I also recommend that you should get a water softener in your home. Why let yourself wipe the spots hardly, when you can just simply install a water softener and let it do the job for you. A water softener will be a very good investment. 🙂
