  • Lysol foam spray for bathrooms, it is in a tall can with a pink label. It really does work!

  • Mr. Clean magic eraser. Makes the job effortless. The generic ones work just as well.

  • best way is to abvoid it building up to begin with. Depending on the kind of water you have diffrent products will work. I agree with the easy magic sponges they are great and dont scratch the surfface which makes the problem more visible.

  • I've tried EVERYTHING. We have really really hard water and dont have a water softener put in yet, so we get hard water deposits really bad. It is impossible to get off. I've tried Magic Erasers and they just tear apart. I've tried home made stuff, vinegar, lemon juice, all the cleaners i can find, NOTHING works. Someone suggested to go to a commercial cleaning place and get some of what they use. Haven't tried it yet, but it's next on my to-do list!

  • For the hard water stains, rust stains use toilet bowl cleaner. Just regular soap scum I use The Works tub & tile cleaner. Dollar Tree stores carry it.

  • I don't know if ithis would work for you but once someone told me to use fabric softener sheets (if a new one does not work try a used one, not as abrasive) to scrub the glass shower doors and tub and it worked for me.
