You Want To Banish Hard Water Stains
At times, regular cleaning products won't be enough
to remove tough rust marks formed by water, but you can easily remove these unsightly stains by using aspirin.
Dampen the rusty area, crush one to two tablets into a fine powder, and apply the powder to the stain. Allow
it to sit and eat away at the blotch for at least 10 minutes.
Wipe it clean with a damp cloth, or use the abrasive side of a sponge for a better result. If it's a stubborn mark, repeat the process a second time.
Not only does the acid in aspirin break down the rust mark by creating a chemical reaction, but the crushed aspirin powder is also abrasive enough to remove any stuck-on gunk.
