Get Rid of Unsightly Lime and Calcium Build Up With This Handy Tool

Adults BrentwoodHome Pillow

If you’ve hosted holiday gatherings before I’m sure the days leading up to the big day, were spent cleaning, buying and preparing food and ironing linens for fancy table displays.  When I start preparing for a holiday gathering, which is always at our home, I start looking a little deeper than simply cleaning the surface of things. Sometimes things require some time to make them shine. 

As you probably read, we just got done hosting Thanksgiving and from Monday until Thursday morning I spent cleaning and cooking up a storm. Part of that cleaning involved cleaning areas that collect a lot sediment like calcium and salt water build up or just plain old grime in crevices that are hard to reach or hard to clean unless you have the right tool!

This is where the scrigit scraper can help. 

I was cleaning bathrooms and used this handy tool around the base of my faucet and where calcium builds up where it comes out of the spout. I used the scrigit to scrape away the build up with the help of a bathroom cleaner and it did so much better than my scrubbing sponge. 


See below? Its gone!


Seeing how well it worked on this part of the sink, I decided to tackle something a little harder!


Check this out: 


The fridge’s ice and water dispenser has the worst build up! It was gross looking and I knew I needed to get this cleaned up before Thanksgiving!

With the tray below, I used the scrigit and some CLR and it cleaned up pretty nicely. But with the water dispensing part, I wasn’t sure I wanted to use such a toxic chemical right there where it dispenses water, so I decided on a concoction of lemon juice, vinegar and baking soda and the help of the scrigit scraper!

IMG_5405The scrigit scraper helped get rid of all that residue, it helped save my hands from scrubbing too! 

Here’s the before and after: 



Aren’t you impressed!? The good news is you can buy the scrigit scraper on at a very affordable price! I think every household needs many of these for all of its uses, such as letter opening, cleaning up adhesive or label residue, or like I did water build up and bathroom grime! Save your hands and get this handy tool!

  1. Great little scraper, I am so amaze how well it help clean water stains and build up. Scrigit scraper is definitely a great tool to help get rid of stains and help prepare us for the big holiday gathering 🙂

  2. That is really impressive. We do get hard water build up sometimes and it’s no fun to clean off. This looks like it would be a great help for cleaning up!

  3. I think one of the reason I don’t really like hosting parties at my house is because of the days before lol All that cleaning and prepping can be exhausting! I wish this giveaway was open to Canada, would totally enter! Good luck to everyone.

  4. I would use the Scrigit Scraper to scrape dried food from my kitchen table. We have a ridge that runs underneath the table lip that my kids wipe their hands on and dried food is difficult to get off from. I think this tool could help.

  5. I would use this at my house! We have such hard water it ruins our coffee pots and washers. I would use this on my faucets that get that build up on them.

  6. I’d use it to clean the narrow space between the sink and the backsplash in the kitchen, and between the sink and the vanity in bathrooms.
    Thank you!

  7. Early in the morning I’m in such a hurry to get my daughter breakfast and get my coffee that I often spill a little sugar on the counter and a little coffee as I stir my full-to-the-brim cup. No big deal if I wipe it up right away, but who has time for that? Or paper towels? Not me. This scraper would be so handy for my end of the day clean up when that sugar has crusted and become one with the counter top. I would also use it for the hard water deposits on the bottom of the water dispenser on my fridge.

  8. I would use this to get junk off of my floor! There’s always something I’m cleaning and scraping up, especially with a dog around!

  9. I would use it to remove stickers – there are always things I buy with stickers that I can’t get off. I also like that it can remove the hard water residue. That would come in handy too.

  10. These look like they’d be really handy to have around! They’re perfect for those nit picky little jobs that I always end up trying to use my fingernails for, like taking off sticker residue!!

  11. This would be a great tool for my cubicle area particularly for cleaning my keyboard — All kinds of junk gets stuck between the keys.

  12. I would use it on my showerheads and bathroom faucets. They’ve got a lot of hard water build-up. I would also use it on dried food pieces in my fridge.

  13. I bought new windows last year and I still have residue on them from the stickers that came on them. I’d use it to finally get that off.

  14. I have several ways in mind to use The Scrigit Scraper’s, but the ones I am most excited about are the very two that you pointed out! I hate the crusty stuff that forms on my water dispenser and the little plate that catches it underneath! I can never get it off and I feel like I have tried everything! It make the whole fridge look unclean and drives me crazy, same as the junk that forms around every water faucet in my house!

  15. I have two uses for this that come to mind right away. First one would be to scrape the dried food or junk off of the bottom shelf of my fridge. That shelf for some crazy reason has grooves in it and its so hard to get that stuck on stuff out of there. The second use would be to take this to work with me to peel old price labels of off our shelves and pricing hooks.

  16. I would use this to remove hard water stains from our refrigerator’s ice & water reservoir as well as the hard water stains around our kitchen & bathroom faucets! We have very hard water!!
