Do you have problems with hard water? We have terribly hard water here in Germany. It's awful! Within a day or two, our entire drainboard is white from the deposits. I've tried CLR. I spray it, let it sit, and then scrub the heck out of it. It works…kind of. I've had some trouble with it because it doesn't actually scrub the deposits. I switched to Soft Scrub. I figured it would work better because of the little granules in it. And it works…kind of. I think it works better than CLR because of the scrubbers in it, but in the end, I'm still left with it all over my hands and some residual hard water stains on my drainboard.
As you know, we recently switched to Shaklee products in our home and I was anxious to try their Scour Off paste. It's made from all-natural abrasives and biodegradable cleaning agents, so I don't have to stress when I get it all over my hands. But as great as all-natural and biodegradable sound…would they work on these mineral deposits on my drainboard?? I decided to give it a shot!
Here are a few "before" photos I took:
Ewww…look at this one!
The water always seems to settle in the corners. It's gross.
So I got to work with my Scour Off and scrubber pad. It took some elbow grease, but I needed very little Scour Off! Remember, Shaklee cleaning products are ultra concentrated so you always get more for your money! Instead of paying for something that's already been diluted, you add the water yourself. When I use soft scrub, I always end up squirting it all over because it's too watery and I need more oomph. I only had to use about the size of a marble when I used Scour Off! And look at the results!
No more crusty deposits!!
I was able to clean the drainboard in about 5 minutes without any toxic chemicals. I'm so glad that I can throw out my CLR and Soft Scrub now!Pin It
