Getting rid of mineral deposits 2.1

Do you have mineral deposits you need to get rid of? I want to start by saying this works on Corian counters, I don’t know how well it works on other surfaces. Be cautious when using a razor blade because it could scratch some surfaces.

We’ve lived in this house about 5 months and if you remember, about 2 months ago we put in a new kitchen faucet. The base isn’t the same size or shape as the previous one and it left mineral deposits showing where the base of the faucet would be. I tried using a few natural methods to remove it, but nothing worked.

So I bought a package of razor blades with a holder for less than $2. Test a small area you want to scrape before completing this project.

Gently scrape the mineral deposits using a light touch. Wipe the area frequently so you can see where you have missed and take special care around you new faucet. Ideally, remove the mineral build-up before you install the new faucet but if that is not an option always scrape away from your new faucet to prevent scratching.

Vinegar works very well also. Just leave it sit on the effective area for awhile.

Vinegar has usually worked for me but in this instance it didn’t. I’m not sure how long the deposits have been building up since we just moved in. It’s probably been years.
