    I found a conversation that gives a lot of solutions used by real people like you and me. If you read them all the recommendation is to start with vinegar and baking soda. It's under a 'Warning' heading because some thing, like bleach can cause rust stains. Here's the link:


    Good luck & HTH

    I have found that cleaning them with vinegar works great. The main key is to take the time to wipe the entire area dry after every shower. I know it is a time consuming issue however, if the water doesn't get a chance to dry, it won't leave spots.

    believe it apple cider vinegar straight. Wipe on let sit a bit and wash off with water. Personally I won't do the baking soda and vinegar because that foams up greatly and the odor is strong. Try organic apple cider vinegar you'll be surprised.

    We have hard water, too. As Lynn states above, the easiest way to prevent hard water stains is to be vigilant about wiping down the tub, doors, walls and faucet. I found it easier to get (at least) the shower doors and walls dried by having a squeegee available.

    First clean any water stains off the doors with something like CLR, CalciumRustLimeCleaner. Then apply a water replellent such as Rain X or Rain Away water treatment. Should work. Good luck!

    First clean the door with something like CLR (Calcium Lime Rust) remover. When dry, apply a water repellant such as Rain X or Rain Away. The water should just run off and never dry on the doors. Re-apply every couple of months. Good Luck!!

    I also have well water. I use RedOut pellets in my water softener which cuts the iron content by 90%. The iron that does get through and stain my showers tubs and sinks, I use a product called The Works. You buy it at the dollar store and IT IS AWESOME!! Works great. Just spray wait and rinse! (And no I am not compensated from the company.) I just know it works.
