  1. Make a vinegar and water solution

    Dilute 2 cups of white vinegar with 2 cups of warm water in a spray bottle. Shake the bottle vigorously to combine the vinegar and water. Fill another spray bottle with hot water.

  2. Scrub the soap scum

    Spray the affected area with hot water, then spray the vinegar solution over it. Scrub the area using a stiff bristle brush or a sponge. Spray the area again with the vinegar solution, and let the solution soak into it for at least 15 minutes. Combine 1/2 cup of baking soda with enough water to make a paste, then apply the paste to the affected area. Scrub the area using hard, circular motions. Rinse the scrubbed area by spraying it with clean hot water. Use a clean sponge to remove all baking soda residue.

  3. Dry the affected area

    To prevent the appearance of water spots, use a clean washcloth or a towel to dry the scrubbed area immediately after you rinse it.
