What is the best way to get hard water marks off my glass shower enclosure? I have tried CLR and Lime-away and they lessen the problem but by no means am I left with a clean glass. If someone hadn't seen it beforehand, they'd never have imagined I'd tried to clean it at all. The glass is only 2 years old so I hope that I'm not already looking at permanent damage. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Here are 3 thangs that I have used and have worked for me. It depends on how hevy the hard water marks are though.

Oven cleaner works miracles to get off the built up gunk on shower doors. Spray, walk away, about a half hour later rinse (scrub if really built up) and then use a squeegee to get off excess .... My kids used to love "washing" the shower doors with bar soap and of course I wasn't able to get to it right away....I tried oven cleaner as a last resort and I have never tried anything else since!!!! It also works great on mildew on the tile!

Use LEMON OIL to remove hard water stains from glass shower doors. Just wipe it on and they are GONE! Always make sure area is completely free of water on any surface before using lemon oil or it will get smudgy-if this happens, just keep wiping with a dry cloth every so often til gone.

Orange hand cleaner with pumice in it. You can find it at auto parts stores or maybe Walmart. Get the stuff with the pumice in it. Apply with bare hands. DO NOT USE WATER until you are ready to rinse. You can feel the water stains and soap scum coming off and your hands will be very clean. Non toxic and smells great.

When I first turn on the hot water to my shower there is a loud noise, then it goes away. Why is this happening?

It could be lime/ calcium deposits in the shower head. Soak shower head in clr and it should be good to go

My rain shower is blocked , only 20% of the holes are working, what do I do, It is two years old and slowly the holes are not working

Your shower head is getting clogged with calicum or lime and will continue to plug up worse until you clean it.
Remove the Shower head from the Shower pipe and submerse it in a bucket mixed with 50% Water and 50% CLR. Let it say submersed for about an hour, then rinse it completly under fresh running water to wash away the CLR and the dissolved calicum/lime.
CLR can be bought at numerous places such as Lowes,Home Depot, and numerous other places.

Soap scum on shower doors

We definitely want to stay away from any cleaning products that have an abrasive. Your local grocery or department store will have products specifically for cleaning soap scum. Some products will work better than others depending on the type of mineral content in your water. The best product is one where you don't have to do an excessive amount of scrubbing to remove the hard water and soap scum stains. Be sure to follow the manufacturers instructions for the best results. Again depending on the mineral content of your water you may have to try a few different products until you find one that works the way you want it to. There are also products you can purchase that you would spray onto the glass after a shower to prohibit the buildup of soap scum.

Steam comes out of the base system reducing the amount of steam that now comes out of the iron. The filter has been changed, could it be block with scale.

Yes it could. Try using CLR, Lime Away, both are Calcium, Lime, and Rust removers. They attack and disolve all 3 types of build ups almost instantly. You can buy eithere at most supermarkets, hardware stores. Use it on your shower heads too, it will improve water flow, Follow instructions to the letter,

Our faucet after working for years now produces very low pressure when turned to hot. Any ideas?

If you have hard water, you probably have lime built up in the head.
Take the shower head off and soak in vinigar or CLR, and re-assemble.

The low pressure light comes on when I try to turn on the shower (it's been three days now); what can I do to resolve this?

Try cleaning the shower head with C.L.R., Lime away or a preferred cleaning product. Remove the shower assembly to thoroughly clean it entirely. There caould be build up form normal use.

Cleaning hard water stains without scratching off new sinks

I would try baking soda and vinegar mix. Just sprinkle the soda in the sink and add the vinegar a bit at a time. Let it sit for awhile,use a soft scrubber,rinse,and wipe with a soft,dry,cloth.
You could also try CLR. Just follow the directions on the package.

Cleaning Tempered Glass

Norwex Descaler is the absolute best thing I've found for hard water build up on any surface, including glass shower doors and shower/sink fixtures. When I moved into my current house last year, the bathtub and shower head were disgusting! They were white with years of built-up hard water residue. Repeated application of CLR and a ton of elbow grease just couldn't get it off. When I tried Norwex DeScaler for the first time, it removed ALL of the soap scum and lime in the FIRST application.

This stuff is enzyme based - free of hazardous chemicals and enviro friendly. The enzymes in the DeScaler actually eat the soap scum! I just spray it on, wait 5 -10 minutes, and wipe off with my wet microfiber cloth (also from Norwex). It's incredible. It works better and faster than CLR, or any other chemical alternative I've tried. It's fume-free and can be used by people with chemical and environmental allergies.

You can buy it from a Norwex Rep, or order it online - a good site is Hope this helps.
