My ceramic walk in shower has dulled thru the years b/c of hard water . I have tried just about everything, including a razor, and yet there are still some areas that are so dull...how do I get the shiny back?

    You might try spraying it with peroxide and then sprinkling baking soda on it. Let set about 5 minutes, then scrub with a non-scratchy brush, sponge, or something. Let me know. That usually helps just about anything.

    Hard water deposits are often dissolved with acids, vinegar being the most common. try a green kitchen scrubbie and some distilled white vinegar.

    my wife, just recently, used a mixture of vinegar, lemon juice some baking soda and water and it worked extremely well. a gal of water, a cup of vinegar and a cup of lemon juice and a quarter cup of baking soda.

    a brush is not "aggressive enough" pick up a green kitchen scrubbie sponge. The green "scothbrite" side is what you need. The acidity in lemon juice is ok but not too active either. Some CLR would boost the power of the scrubbie.

    seems baking soda mixed w/ blue Dawn detergent and green scotchbrite does the best job....thanks for all of the ideas everyone ♥

    Vinegar. There is a "Cleaning Vinegar" now on the market. I have tried everything to no avail. Then I heard about this from a friend, Worked great, smelled horrible, but did the trick.
