Hard water stain in shower

I live in New England and have a lot of iron in my water and every time I take a shower I noticed the walls of my fiberglass shower keep getting orange. How do I get rid of the hard water stains on my shower walls?

Re: Hard water stain in shower

Question, is your water piping iron or steel. or does the orange come from the water itself.

Try spraying on a 50/50 mix of water and white vingar. Soak it well and let it sit for awhile before scrubbing. May have to repeat several times.

You could also try a paste of Borax but you could scratch the fiberglass if you're not careful.
