Default Super Dooper Vase Cleaning Method

Ok, i dont know if you guys ever had a problem, but one of my vases started getting a line of grime where my water level usually sits at. It was slightly noticeable at first, now it was dirty brown and the ring was getting bigger (wish i took pics).

I tried using everything for it. Beer, water, lemon juice, baking soda, salt, rubbing alcohol. It never removed the ring of dirty and it kept pissing me off (it was also at point where the vase curves in, and the brush couldn't actually rub against it).

So I tried the last thing i could think of...CLR. i added a little CLR, some epsom salt and a bunch of cold water. Then i put in the brush and started shoving it in back and forth till all the clr turned into a white foam. When the foam kept building up, i noticed that it was eating away at the ring. I did it for 5mins, cleared it out, washed it over and over again.

The vase is spotless and looks amazing. Just in case anyone had a similar problem...CLR that bitch!

edit: Be careful, use gloves with CLR and make sure its a vase brush you dont really care about, or will use for this process, it literally eats away at the brush.

I have the same problem.good idea! Just keep the clr from getting on the outside of the vase, It could fuck w/ any finish/paint you may have on the glass.

I use a citrus based product called De-Solv-It , just put in some rocksalt and give it a few squirts then swirl it around for a minute then rinse with soapy water and it's brand new. It also doesn't break down plastic for those who use acrylic vases.

I use 2 or 3 fist fulls of uncooked rice with some water and lemon juice, shake it a few times and that's worked aces for me.

Hmm this is interesting. I dunno if I would want to put CLR, that cant be that good for it. I think I will try martello's idea before I start throwing chemicals all over the place. I like things that don't eat my brushes too lol.

ya i believe it is an abbreviation... but the bottle says CLR really big on it... so if you don't recognize it, you probably haven't seen it lol.
CLR has annoying commercials >.<

haha i live in az so i find it humorous that the best thing i've found is called "Fabuloso".

just a cleaning product. kills the odors really well. couple squirts in the base, water, swish, let sit. Then i hold the base upside down and use my garden hose and shoot water into the base for about a min. all good

also, i try to put limes/lemons in my base water as often as possible.
