Spring cleaning was in the air and our next guest blogger was determined to clean her shower door. It turned out to be easier than she thought. Felicia Baker is an employee at the home office and shared this story with us:

Cleaning shower doors can be one of the house chores you dread the most. It’s continually in use therefore it doesn’t take long for the hard water stains and soap scum to build up. Typically, you’re scrubbing for a long period of time in order to remove all the scum.

My shower doors at home were overdue for a cleaning. I had procrastinated long enough, so off to Orscheln Farm and Home I went. When I arrived in the aisle with the different cleaning agents, I discovered Lime Buster.

I read the label to find that it “quickly dissolves rust and hard water stains on bathroom sinks, tile, shower doors, tubs and toilets.” Seemed like a winner to me, so I took it home and tried it.

First, I prepared for my Lime Buster project by putting on my rubber gloves. I then grabbed a new sponge and applied the lime buster directly onto the sponge. I wiped a good amount of area and kept reapplying the Lime Buster as I went. After I was finished with one door, I let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Next I took hot water and rinsed the door a few times. When suddenly I saw something I hadn’t seen for a while – a clear door!

Needless to say, I was happy with my first Lime Buster project. I’m thinking about tackling a few other ones around the house. The label says it can be used on fiberglass, stainless steel and chrome along with cleaning lime scale buildup from humidifiers, vaporizers, tea kettles and cookware.  The hardest part is narrowing down what I want do next!
