One of the most used rooms in your entire home is the bathroom. With constant traffic from yourself, family members, and guests, it is also the room you need to clean the deepest. Many types of stains find their way into your bathroom, and you may often need to use a little more elbow grease to eliminate them- even with the best products. Whether you’re battling hard water stains, mildew, or toilet bowl stains, there’s a simple solution for each task.
Hard Water Stains
With the right product and technique, it’s easy to remove unwanted water stains in your shower, sink, or toilet. MB Stone Care MB-3 Soap Film and Mineral Deposit Remover is a product designed to get rid of unsightly and unsanitary soap film, scum, and hard water deposits effortlessly and without damaging the surface of your stone. It works also great to clean the inside of that glass shower door from those hard water deposits. Simply spray down the affected area and allow the solution to settle for a few minutes then rinse thoroughly. The hard water stains should wipe clean. MB-3 can be used on all natural stones (honed and polished).
Mold and mildew can be tough to remove from natural stone. There are a lot of products on the market that claim to remove mold and mildew from natural stone, but you will find that MB-9 Mold and Mildew Remover is the easiest and most consistent product to use. Mildew needs to be removed as soon as you notice it accumulating on any hard surface. It has the ability to affect your health as well as your stone surface. MB-9 removes mildew stains and odor from granite, marble, limestone, travertine and all other natural stones without damaging the surface. It cleans mildew stains on contact without scrubbing. For darker (or more stubborn mildew stains) some light scrubbing may be required in order to help break up the build-up. This typically happens with black mildew. We know you will love this product!
Toilet Bowl Stains
When cleaning toilet bowl stains, turn off the water so any chemicals you use can break down stains easily. Once the water stops running, apply your toilet bowl cleaner; in the absence of toilet bowl cleaner, you can use a solution of backing soda, and white vinegar to help settle into the stains. With a pumice stone or sandpaper, you can scrub away most tough buildup. If using vinegar, be sure to protect any calcite based stones around the toilet such as travertine, marble or limestone; any splashes could etch the stone. If you need a stone safe disinfectant, try TrueKleen Ocean Breeze Disinfectant.

This product can be used on all hard surfaces in bathrooms, showers, shower doors, fixtures, commodes, and kitchen counter tops and prep areas. Like any other disinfectant it is not to be considered a daily cleaner.
