Window Cleaning Tulsa DIY Tips We made this page to inform the average homeowner about how to approach properly removing hard water stains from either the windows around your house or the glass enclosure in your shower. You might think twice before going all willy-nilly in following the advice of some random person in a YouTube video who claims to have the latest greatest Secret on how to remove hard water stains. They will claim everything from applying lemon juice, baking soda, salt, sandpaper, and even rubbing the dust from a ground-up unicorn’s horn with a scrubby sponge in the shape of SpongeBob. Here is some basic commonsense tulsa window cleaning tips, focusing more so on the removal of hard water stains.
Hard water stain removal from glass shower doors or your home’s windows may look like an easy task if the homeowner watches videos like these:

They make it look so easy in the videos, when in reality, these methods will quite literally take 1-2 hours of nonstop scrubbing to even make a dent in the stains. Just read the comments section in each of these videos. Everyone who left a comment under these videos said something similar to, “I tried this, and it didn’t work at all.” After wasting hours on trying to remove these unsightly stains, the novice DIYer will do one of two things:
1) Out of desperation they will look for more abrasive or powerful chemicals to get the stains off. This WILL result in either causing fine scratches on the glass or even acid etching the glass. Either way, the glass now has even more damage, and they will most likely end up having to replace the glass as a result.
2) They’ll realize DIY techniques aren’t going to remove the stains, no matter how hard they try, and they end up hiring a professional to do it. The only problem is, they’ve already wasted 1-2 hours and now they’re having to pay someone to produce the results they couldn’t.
