How can I get rid of shower stains?

A. The best way to remove rust stains depends on the material from which your sink and shower are made. Using products on porcelain that are meant for stainless steel, and vice versa, can ruin the finish permanently. With a little knowledge and elbow grease, it's easy to restore the sparkle.

If you have porcelain, lightly rub a wet pumice stone over the rust stain in circular motion. This will release a pasty substance that acts as a gentle abrasive. Rinse with water, inspect the stain and repeat until it's gone. If any remains won't come off with the pumice, use a soft brush and baking soda to scrub it off. Rinse well.

If you have stainless steel, mix together vinegar and baking soda to create a paste. Then apply with a soft cloth and rub to remove any discoloration. Rinse well.
