How To Clean Lime Scale From Plumbing Fixtures

Lime scale is a term to describe the mineral deposits that form on plumbing fixtures as water evaporates. If you’ve got “hard water,” you’re probably used to seeing these deposits on faucets, around drains, or even in your coffee maker. White or yellowish stains make your plumbing fixtures look worn down quickly, but we’ve got some advice on how to clean up these tough stains.

Cleaning Various Fixtures/Surfaces

Some items that may already be in your kitchen work well for this task. Lemon juice and vinegar are effective because they are acidic, and the acid dissolves the calcium carbonate—the deposit left behind from the minerals in your water supply. Here’s how we recommend cleaning off some of the parts of your home that may be affected by lime scale buildup:

Consider a Water Softener

We also recommend a water softener if you want to prevent scale buildup in the first place. A water softener helps to keep your home cleaner and, most importantly, protects your plumbing fixtures from the damage of scale buildup.
