What Do Hard Water Stains Look Like

Hard water stains are known by many names - limescale, mineral deposits, mineral buildup, hard water deposits - but the meaning is the same. Hard water stains appear as chalky white residue that results from buildup of excess minerals present in hard water.

You might have noticed these unsightly hard water stains building up on your shower doors, faucets, showerheads, and other places where water is used throughout your home.

How Do Hard Water Stains Form?

These hard water stains are left behind after the water evaporates, leaving only minerals like magnesium and calcium that are the culprit of hard water. Not only is it unpleasant to look at, it's even tougher to remove - it often takes harsh cleaners with bleach and other chemicals, as well as some serious elbow grease.

This is especially troublesome in the bathroom, because when mineral scales combine with soap scum, you're left with increased buildup that forms faster with continued use.
