Cleaning hard water stanes, what do you use?

my shower has hard water stains that need removed, I;ve tried CLR and the results aren't that good

Whatever you recommend I want it to be fumeless

Mrs Danger uses boiling vinegar. You can buy it for about $4 per gallon. It does give off fumes when it hits the deposits, but only a strong vinegar odor.

Stannous stains are tin compunds.

I use the Mr. Clean cleaning sponge thing. A green scratchy pad works, too but not on the shower doors, unless you don't mind scratch marks.

Will not clean your shower, but may stop a deadly viper.

If stanes are anything like stains....you'll definately need Kaboom.

Depending on how large an area, I use these things. They work great but for the whole shower I think you'd need something else.

install a new shower stall or don't shower at all will certainly help
