‘Best results!’: Mrs Hinch fans share ‘30 second’ hack to rid limescale from shower doors


Mrs Hinch rose to fame on Instagram several years ago when she started to share cleaning hacks. The social media sensation now has more than four million followers and shares more of her family life. This means her fans share their own cleaning tips and tricks on dedicated forums, including how to effectively remove limescale stains from shower doors.

Posting on Mrs Hinch Cleaning Tips Facebook page, one woman asked for advice on how to clean her shower glass door after numerous failed attempts using a multitude of cleaning products.

HC Tan wrote: “Can anyone tell me how to clean this shower glass door? It is only on certain parts of the door.

“My shower glass door recently became like this. It was only 10 years old. 

“I’ve tried vinegar, toilet cleaner, baking soda and bleach with water. All no use.”

They said: “If you have a can of WD-40 Multi-Use product on hand, you can remove hard water stains from shower doors quickly and easily.

“You probably didn’t know you could use WD-40 for bathroom cleaning, but because it’s a lubricant that’s not as harsh as most chemicals you use in the bathroom, it’s great for getting rid of hard water stains and other stubborn stains without harming your surfaces.”

Spray some multi-use product on the affected areas, and with a sponge and a bit of elbow grease, you’ll have your glass doors sparkling again, according to the pros. 

What’s more, as WD-40 has water displacement properties, it protects shower doors from further water damage, and rust stains from where metal comes into contact with your doors.
