    Hard water stains are a calcium build-up. Try using white vinegar mixed with water and adab of dawn dish soap. Leave the solution on long enough to break down the calcium. With that you can use Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

    Make a 50/50 mix of blue Dawn dish soap and white vinegar. Spray that on the shower stall and let it sit. Then, scrub with a dry, used dryer sheet. This sounds funky but it works! Once all is clean, spray down the stall after each shower.

    I use a magic eraser in all of my showers. It takes the hard water stains from off the glass doors and tiles. It takes a little bit of elbow grease, but it works.

    Magic Erasers ARE the best invention of the century, but I would still use a little vinegar and baking soda first. Depending on where the stains are, like if the vinegar wont stay in place, go to someplace like Sally's Beauty supply and get some cotton on the roll. Place the cotton in the hard to soak area and pour the vinegar on it so it can soak. Then make a paste with the baking soda and use it, with the magic eraser to scrub. The cotton works great with hard to soak places with mold or mildew.
