Hard water is water with higher-than-usual mineral content. Hard water contains calcium and magnesium ions. Hard water stains occur when hard (mineral-rich) water evaporates, leaving a grimy residue on your surfaces. Most commonly, you’ll find hard water stains in the bathroom on glass, porcelain, tile, and bathroom wall. You may also find hard water stains on your dishes and clothing.
The bathrooms wall get dirty very often. You use expensive paint on your bathroom wall, but with constant exposure to hard water, it gets blemished very easily. These stains are so stuck on the wall that they cannot be removed easily. Eradicating the water stains can give your wall a makeover so that it looks nearly new again.
In fact, you may find that repainting with a semi-gloss, gloss or bathroom paint may be the only way to completely fix this problem. Before you take that step, however, give this one a try.

Before washing walls, make sure that baseboards are properly sealed with caulk at the top and on the floor so water does not infiltrate the wall system. A towel or sheet against the base of the wall can help catch excess moisture. (Be sure to remove it when you’re finished cleaning).
Streaks still there? Try Awesome – it works on almost anything and is available at dollar stores. Just as any cleaning product, test a small area first to ensure that it does not remove the paint or cause discoloration.
To avoid excess moisture on walls in the future, make sure the room is well ventilated. Use fans, if necessary, to prevent the build-up of humidity.
