Hard water stains on stainless steel cookware

Sonia | Jan 27, 2005 04:22 PM

Whenever I boil water in my stainless steel cookware (All-Clad, Cuisinart), tiny hard water rings appear where the bubbles came up. Some really vigorous scrubbing with a nylon pad usually gets most of them out but I'd really rather not... I live in an extremely hard water area (LA city) and this is something I have to deal with a lot. I've tried ignoring the problem but it's really unsightly and was wondering if there's an easier, safer way to remove these stains. And please don't say to get a water softener. I'm putting that off until we remodel the kitchen. TIA
