Limescale is one of the most annoying problems found in the home, especially in the bathroom. Whether your water is hard or not, there will always be lime residue that, if not removed in time, will give rise to true yellow or brownish lime formations that are difficult to remove. In this case let’s see the secret of cleaners to remove limescale in a very short time.

How limestone is formed

Limescale  is one of the most common problems that we can find in the bathroom  . It is formed when water containing minerals, especially calcium and magnesium, evaporates, leaving residue of these minerals. These accumulate on surfaces such as tiles, bathtubs or showers, sinks and toilets, forming a hard, whitish film.

There are several factors that contribute to the formation of lime in the bathroom  , one of them is the hardness of the water. If the water is very hard, that is, it contains a large amount of minerals, more lime will be deposited on the surfaces.

Another factor that contributes to limescale formation is  the temperature of the water  . Hot water evaporates faster than cold water, which means that minerals from hot water settle on surfaces more easily. Additionally, the use of detergents and cleaning products containing chemicals can also contribute to limescale formation. Therefore, as we will discover shortly, the secret of the cleanser is a mixture of ingredients and not a ready-made product.

The secret ingredients of cleansers

Unsurprisingly, it is often the chemicals used for cleaning that contribute to limescale formation. So let’s see how to make a bathroom cleaning detergent that helps remove limescale quickly and easily.

You will need some washing powder, baking soda, concentrated fabric softener with the scent you like, and some toothpaste. Take a bowl and put  7 tablespoons of washing powder and 2 tablespoons of baking soda inside  .

The secret of the cleaners

Mix the two powders well until you obtain a homogeneous mixture without lumps. Measure a small amount of toothpaste onto the tip of the spoon and mix well. As the last ingredient,  add half a cap of concentrated fabric softener  . The concentrated formulation is better as the smell will be more intense. Mix the entire mixture well, it will be a little lumpy.

We take a piece of absorbent paper and  remove a little of the product with our hands  , working it until  it forms very compact balls  to place on the sheet of paper.
You can store the balls created in an airtight glass jar to preserve their properties and aroma.

How to use this remedy

Using these bathroom cleaning balls is very simple. To clean the toilet you will have to  pour a cup of alcohol vinegar into the toilet and then throw a scoop  . Let it sit for a few minutes and then thoroughly clean the entire toilet with the brush, paying special attention to the hardest formations.

Another method of using the balls is to place them in the cistern  , so that with each flush of water the toilet will be clean and fragrant.
These balls  can also be used to clean the bathroom floor  . Simply dissolve them in a bucket of water and use them to clean the floor and tiles.
