How do I descale a shower or a bath?

It is because the tap water is too hard that in the long term scale forms on the walls of the shower and in the tub. But how to effectively get rid of these very unsightly yellowish traces ?

Tartar invades our sanitary facilities

For a few months now, you have noticed that the beautiful white bathtub that you have just bought, expensive what is more, begins to yellow in some places, whereas after each use you pay particular attention to its cleaning?

Don’t get upset, as scaling in tubs and showers is simply unavoidable. Yes, as the water we use is too rich in limestone, scale automatically forms on the walls of bathtubs and showers, over time, without our being able to avoid it.

The phenomenon is amplified even more, if one takes a bath regularly in the bathtub and this even if its cleaning is done in the rules of art. Moreover, if you carefully observe the sanitary equipment in your bathroom, you will notice that the scale does not only become encrusted on the walls of the shower, the sink and the bathtub, but also invades tiling and earthenware, not to mention the faucets, especially the shower head. But how to remedy it effectively?

Some tips for successfully descaling your bathtub and shower

There are several tips to effectively get rid of these traces of lime. There are of course the chemicals intended primarily for descaling the bathtub. However, in addition to their toxicity, these products often also leave unpleasant, often repulsive odors in the bathroom. What’s more, anything chemical is harmful to the environment.

This is why I have always used entirely natural products, which I remind you are also very affordable. So for a successful descaling of a bath or shower, you will need: white alcohol vinegar, lemons, and coarse salt. And above all, do not forget an abrasive sponge to rub well with your “homemade” descaling product on the affected areas and household gloves to protect your hands.

Start by heating a liter of bench vinegar in a saucepan, cover the scaled parts with coarse salt soaked in lemon and leave to act for half an hour. Using the abrasive sponge, gently and regularly brush the walls of the tub and shower with the warm white vinegar and rinse with plenty of water.

Repeat the operation until the traces of limescale disappear permanently. And open the windows wide, otherwise you risk suffocation!
