CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner Beat My Hard Water Stains!

This post brought to you by CLR. All opinions are 100% mine.

Spring fever is starting to hit hard! After months of being in the house, I’m getting antsy about getting outside. That usually means I start thinking about spring cleaning. One area of our house that seems to never be clean enough is the kitchen. Something always needs to be scrubbed or picked up.

Since we don’t live in town, we have hard well water that wreaks havoc on our sinks and tubs. I am forever trying to scrub the hard water stains out of the sink. 

CLR bathroom kitchen cleaner review

I recently tried out the CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner on the stains in my kitchen sink. CLR claims to be able to cut through lime deposits, calcium and hard water build up. Sounded promising! So, I put it to the test with my ugly kitchen sink!

Check out the stains, especially in the back right corner.

I followed the directions to spray the area with the CLR cleaner. Then let it sit for 2 minutes. The cleaner is a foam that stays put fairly well when sprayed on.

I came back after a few minutes and used a sponge to scrub away the hard water stain. I have to say I’m pretty impressed with how easy the stain came off using the CLR cleaner. I didn’t really have to use much elbow grease, so I cleaned the whole sink and it’s now bright and shiny! Plus, it smells great from the light fresh scent of the cleaner.

  1. 1

    I use CLR regularly! I love that stuff.

  2. 2

    I wonder if it will clean the ugly well water stains off of my shower!! It’s got to be worth a shot (and for the record, I HATE well water).

  3. 4

    I make my own homemade cleaner, mixing half water and half Vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray the mixture in the tub and shower and wait a few minutes before wiping clean. I love to use eco-friendly products, so I can see this works.
