Cleaning water marks off of stained glass

You can clean water marks off of clear glass with CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover. The question, though, from Rebecca in Spring Grove, Illinois was "Can CLR Calcium, Lime & Rust Remover be used for colored stained glass that has water marks on it from the sprinkler?"

Rebecca, if the glass has been colored in the processing of the glass and not painted or coated after manufacture, CLR is safe to use on the glass only. If you avoid any contact with the lead or frame of the stained glass, CLR is safe to use as a diluted solution of equal parts CLR and warm water. Apply the solution using a damp cloth or sponge to the glass only. After 2 minutes, hand remove the solution from the glass using a damp cloth or sponge and clear cold water. Do not spray the glass directly to ensure that the CLR solution does not come into contact with the other materials in the stained glass piece.

Getting rid of mold under a laminate floor

Any time you get a home from someone else you inherit their problems. Carol from Lewisburg, Tennessee found a problem in her new home under a laminate floor. "I am so excited about CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover. I bought it to get rid of light mold that I found under a cheap laminate floor with foam underlayment. The previous owner had small dogs that peed on it, but to my surprise your product removed the black glue that I thought I was going to have to sand off the original pine wood floors. Thank you to the wonderful women who made this product."

Carol, I am so happy that CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover was able to help. A powerful, bleach-free formula, our product was designed to eliminate tough mold and mildew stains from a variety of surfaces. The foam sprayer will give you a more directed application of our cleaner which will prevent splash back and spores from spreading in the air. CLR Mold & Mildew Stain Remover can be used in your bathroom, kitchen and basement on painted walls, ceramic tile, hardwood floors and baseboards as well as fabrics.
