Mold and Limescale stains can be a pain in the neck. The areas around your bathroom and kitchen usually contain moisture, which can face the danger of limescale or develop mold around the surface. The build-up usually leaves a foul smell around the area as well.
If you take a closer look at your sink in the kitchen, your bathroom ceiling, or even your coffee maker, you are likely to find grey or black spots that can ruin the beauty of your home and ruin the overall experience. So, how do we clean them?
Here’s are some quick and easy ways to get rid of limescale, mold, and other stains from your home:
Things you’ll need:
- Baking Soda
- Hot Water
- Lemon Juice
- Scrub or Soft cloth
How to remove limescale & Mold:
Limescale is usually caused due to hard water. They can occur on the sinks, toilets, faucets, etc. One of the methods to get rid of limescale is by mixing lemon juice and baking soda/vinegar. Both lemon juice and vinegar are acidic in nature that will help remove the hard water residue. Mix both the ingredients together and leave it soaking for an hour on the spots. Remove it with a soft cloth. That will do the trick.
Molds are fungi that can appear in fuzzy or flat spots. They occur because of low light and moisture build-up. An excellent method to remove molds from kitchen appliances, hard flooring, etc., is baking powder. Mix one tablespoon of baking powder with soap and water. Spray the mixture on the affected area and scrub off the surface. Now, rinse the surface with water to remove any residue.
Now that you have cleaned the limescale and mold, it might be possible some stains and rust on taps or faucets are still left from the hard water and are hard to clean. But with WD-40, all of these can be wiped off with a straightforward swipe. Spray it on the taps/faucet, bathroom ceiling or sink and wipe with a soft cloth.
Pro tip: clean up any moisture as soon as you notice it.
