How to prepare a spray that removes limescale from the shower

The shower is undoubtedly the area of ​​the bathroom most exposed to  limescale buildup  , which, in turn, traps dirt and soap scum, creating annoying white or brown stains. Luckily, it is possible  to remove limescale  using only natural ingredients.

When  lime accumulates on the walls of the shower  and hardens, we usually resort to specific products that, however, are full of chemicals that are harmful to health. There are some natural alternatives that are equally effective and below we suggest more than one recipe.

Periodically cleaning all parts of the shower, from the tiles to the glass and the shower head, is very important to avoid the build-up of limescale and dirt. A clean bathroom is a fundamental condition for proper hygiene.

The ingredients of the  homemade spray to remove limescale from the shower  are vinegar and baking soda. The first has ideal properties for disinfecting and removing dirt and, combined with the second ingredient, generates a chemical reaction capable of removing dirt and leaving surfaces perfectly clean.

In a container, mix 3 parts white vinegar and one part water. Add 2 tablespoons of baking soda and wait for the effervescent reaction to finish. It will take about 30 seconds. Finally, add the juice of one lemon and pour into a spray bottle.

Spray the solution over the entire surface of the shower, wait 10 minutes, and then scrub with a sponge or toothbrush to  remove dirt and limescale  .

Finally, rinse with water and dry well with a clean cloth. It is important to leave the shower perfectly dry and therefore, if possible, it is advisable to leave the windows open for a few minutes.
