Lime in the bathroom - these tips will help you


If you live in an area where very hard water comes from the pipe, knows the problem: limescale everywhere. Especially in the bathroom lime can be quite annoying. What you can do in individual places, read our tips.

Problem spots in the bathroom

  • shower cabin
  • fittings
  • Tiles and joints
  • Washbasin and washbasin edges
  • WC

Straight fittings and sinks can be special problem areas. Faucets are also sensitive to acid in some cases - so you have to be particularly careful when removing limescale.

Tips for the shower cubicle

The magic word here is: regular cleaning. Straight shower cubicles made of real glass should be cleaned very often. This prevents limescale from settling and deposits remain minimal. In the trade there are special cleaners, which are also a "recalcification" to prevent - to a very frequent cleaning you can not get around in most cases.

The shower head is best cleansed of calcium deposits by putting a balloon over the entire shower head, which has previously been filled with a lime remover, preferably vinegar essence or citric acid.

Tips for the faucets

In faucets limescale often forms in hard to reach places. These places are best reached with an old toothbrush. To remove the limescale from delicate fittings, you can also take ordinary toothpaste. For light deposits, this usually works very well.

Tips for the toilet

Lime (and often urine stone) can also settle in the toilet. Such deposits can be removed well with coke. Just pour in and let it work in overnight. Also denture cleaners have worked well.

If you descale your coffee machine or your kettle, you can still "secondarily" use the descaling solution in the toilet. This will also keep the toilet lime-free.

Tips & Tricks

Of the many different lime cleaners in the trade are not always the same effect. Just test what works best for you and stick with it.
