Cleaning Mineral Deposits From Vases


Can anyone tell me how to clean water/mineral deposits from a vase? I have an antique bud vase - glass - that has deposits. I've tried vinegar thinking that if it works in irons and coffee machines it would work here, but it didn't.

Judi, you might want to try denture cleaning tablets (the kind that fizz), and let it soak quite awhile. (01/14/2005)

Try wetting a paper towel with vinegar and then laying the towels over the lip of the vase, or where ever stains are. Leave on for an hour or two, this may have to be repeated. (01/14/2005)

If any of the soaking methods don't work try a bit of water and washing up liquid and a spoon or two of sand. Swish around gently. Keep pouring out and rinsing to check if its clean so you don't overdo it and scratch the glass.

A denture cleaning tablet and some hot (not boiling) water and soaking for a while like a previous poster stated, worked wonders for me in a similar situation when vinegar didn't work very well.

Pour in some Lime Away and let it really sit. (01/15/2005)

Judi,
Try putting aquarium gravel in with the vinegar. Swoosh it around until it removes the deposits.

Try filling the vase with water and drop in a couple of Efferdent (denture cleaner) tablets. (05/27/2006)

Have you tried baking soda? It's not abrasive and might do the trick. (08/05/2007)

There is a product called "The Original Buddy" it's a mini scrubber that you drop into the vase - then control it from the outside with a patented magnetic handle.

You scrub out the entire inside then just pull the mini scrubber back out - make sense? For tough stains use Buddy with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. www.TheOriginalBuddy.com or go to Google and type "Vase Cleaner" (05/06/2008)
