Clean Soap Scum and Water Spots from Metal

  • Transcript

    LESLIE: Gary in Oregon, you’ve got The Money Pit. What can we do for you today?

    GARY: I have a shower that probably hasn’t been cleaned in many years.

    TOM: OK.

    GARY: And it has a buildup of water spots on the glass and on the metal framing and also on the – it has cultured marble sides.

    TOM: Right.

    GARY: And we’re doing very well getting the soap scum off but the water spots are terrible and they’re on the metal framing of the glass door and the window.

    TOM: OK, well there’s a product called CLR. Have you heard of that?

    GARY: CLR?

    TOM: CLR. It stands for Calcium-Lime-Rust. It takes off a lot of those mineral deposits, which is what you’re seeing. And that should be all you need.

    LESLIE: Well and also Gary, if you’ve got some white vinegar around the house, I would just put some on a sponge and see how you do with that because the white vinegar does very well at sort of disintegrating all of that mineral buildup as well. Because it’s been there for ages and ages you might need to step it up to the CLR but I would start with vinegar.

    GARY: OK, thank you.

    TOM: You’re welcome. Thanks so much for calling us at 888-MONEY-PIT.
