Remove water stains from glass using vinegar and baking soda

  1. Make a paste using vinegar and baking soda. The paste should not scratch the glass, but start in a small, inconspicuous spot just to make sure.
  2. Apply the paste to the stains using a scrubbing sponge in a circular motion. Work the stain while applying this paste and allow it to sit for 5 minutes
  3. Wipe off the paste with a damp towel and remove excess water with a squeegee. Your hard water stain(s) should be removed. If your stains have been sitting for several years, you may need to further clean your glass.
  4. Apply a cream hob cleaner to the remaining hard water stains in a circular motion with a scrubbing sponge. Allow the hob cleaner to dry for 15 minutes.
  5. Buff the dried hob cleaner with a towel. Your glass will now be free of hard water deposits. You will need to repeat this process once every six months to keep your glass free of hard water build-up.
