We have all had issues with spots on our cars after it rains, and dust on our furniture when we open doors or windows. We all know that various types of air filters are available to help relieve the issue of dust particles and allergens to provide a healthier breathing environment and less dust on the furniture.
Water – like air – also leaves particles behind, as it contains naturally found minerals like calcium and magnesium that will leave a residue when left to dry on its own.
So how do you get rid of these unsightly water spots? Here are 3 fast solutions:
Install a Water Filter
In our homes we can take a similar approach as an air filter and install a water filter/conditioner at our home’s main water service line to make cleanup of soap and water residue quick and easy, and also prevent buildup in our home’s pipes and appliances. Our home is our biggest investment, so why not take care of the plumbing and fixtures like we take care of our heating and air conditioning units?

Use a Topical Sealant
Outside windows pose a unique issue as mineral laden rain combined with the UV rays from the sun bakes the rain spots onto the glass. This can also be an issue in bathrooms that get direct sunlight. You can solve this problem by sealing glass shower enclosures and outside windows with topical products. This can be a real time saver when it comes to spring-cleaning and teenagers that often forget to squeegee down a shower. There are many helpful products out there, from using a paste car wax on glass blocks and glass doors, to one of the many spray-on products made specifically for treating and sealing glass, mirrors, and windows. Some products that we have personally used with much success are Rain-X and Magic Shower Glass & Mirror Spray.
Wipe it Up
Simply wiping things down or using a squeegee in the shower helps in the long run to keep cleanups simple and easy.
