In order to increase its efficiency, combiyou can mix salt and lemon juice. This remedy is perfect to treat steel surfaces and make them shinier. Before using it, make sure salt is well dissolved, otherwise you risk to scratch the surfaces. Squeeze a lemon, add salt and a little lukewarm water, mix everything well and pour it directly on the surface to be treated. Let it act for two minutes and dry with a cloth.

If you do not know how to remove persistent limestone from your toilet or shower, you can try with a mix of baking soda and apple cider vinegar. Mix these two ingredients and let sit for about an hour. Finally, remove the residue with a damp cloth.

How to remove limescale from the flatiron

One of the remedies to remove limescale from your flatiron is a mixture of vinegar and coarse salt. In a bowl, pour the white wine vinegar, hot water and two tablespoons of coarse salt. Dip a microfiber cloth or a sponge in the mixture and rub it directly on the cold flatiron. Perform circular movements, in order to gently remove any spot. Repeat until it is completely clean.

Another infallible method is baking soda. Not only it eliminates dirt, but it also dissolves smells. Mix warm water and two tablespoons of baking soda. If you want to give it a particular scent, you can add some lemon juice or a few drops of tea tree oil. With a soft and non-abrasive sponge, rub the mixture on the surface until it is perfectly clean.
