The tap water where I live is very hard, leaving mineral deposits on everything from my dishes to my shower walls. The hard water stains on my faucets and fixtures are very difficult to remove, and it's probably my least favorite cleaning job. Besides the hardness of the water, it's also a little rusty too. I'm not sure if the rust is from the water supply, or the 50 year old plumbing in our house, or a combination of both. I've been using CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner for years now and haven't found anything that works better.
At first I was just using CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner for the fixtures and my stainless steel kitchen sink. However, I love how it cleans glass stovetop (removing the deposit formed by a pot that boiled over), the mysterious rust stains that appear in my dishwasher, and the mildew that forms on my outdoor canvas awnings.
When I was given the opportunity to blog about CLR, I jumped on it. This stuff really is fast acting and powerful. It cleans quickly and effectively, making short work of stubborn dirt, calcium, lime, hard water stains, and soap scum.
Probably the best thing about CLR Bath & Kitchen Cleaner, besides it's cleaning power, is that it has the Environmental Protection Agency's "DfE" or Designed for the Environment designation. That means it has a safer chemistry and is not harmful to everyone in your home.
I follow CLR brands on Twiiter (@clrcleaners) and encourage you to follow as well. It's a good way to keep an eye out for new products, discounts, and promotions.
