Wash it with warm water mixed with white vinegar. Overtime the hard water buildup will disappear. Good luck

White vinegar has been proven to work to remove hard water stains shower walls. See the step by step method below:

Natural Formula to Use:
Pure white vinegar

Method to Use:

1.Fill a clean spray bottle with pure vinegar

2.Spray the vinegar freely over the shower and wait for a few minutes

3.If stains are stubborn spray more vinegar and wait a while longer

4.Simply wipe away with a clean cloth to reveal the shine

Sometimes stains are extra stubborn - for this make a paste of white vinegar and baking soda and scrub gently with a soft brush or sponge. Never use an abrasive cleaner like scouring pads, powders or steel wool as this will scratch the surface.

Also, installing a shower filter will remove all the hard water minerals from your water and prevent the stains from forming again on the shower walls, meaning less cleaning!
