Scum & Mineral Deposit Remover

Product Description
$14.95
Maximum quantity available reached.

Supreme Surface Scum & Mineral Deposit Remover was developed as a safer alternative to other products that include harsh chemicals and abrasives.  


  • ADVANCED TIME-RELEASE FORMULA - Capable of removing difficult issues such as wax, soap scum buildup, light to moderate mineral deposits, hard water stains, calcium, lime, and more, without damaging the surface beneath it.
  • POWERFUL SURFACTANT - Penetrate the surface, separating grease, oil, wax residue, and lifting them to get rinsed away.
  • REMOVE HARD WATER SPOTS - Formulated with all natural fruit acids to break down mineral deposits (calcium and lime) that cause hard water spots.
  • MULTI-SURFACE - Recommended surface use on glass shower doors, granite countertops, granite composite sinks, stainless steel sinks, appliances, solid surface, most plumbing fixtures, fiberglass, shower stalls, ceramic, porcelain, tile, grout, cultured marble, and more.
  • FOR BEST RESULTS & PREVENTION - When used to deep clean composite granite sinks, quartz sinks, and granite countertops, follow with Supreme Surface Granite Quartz & Marble Treatment with ioSeal; For glass shower doors follow with CTP Multi-Surface Steak-Free cleaner; For stone showers and fiberglass shower stalls follow with Supreme Surface Stone Shower Treatment with ioSeal.
  • 🚫 WHAT NOT TO EXPECT 🚫 - This product is not for use on polished or honed quartz, marble, travertine, or other calcareous stones. Additionally, this product will not remove chemical or physical damage from etching, abrasion, or scratching. Does not make surfaces smoother, add shine, or provide additional protection beyond its cleaning capabilities. Not as effective on rust.

HOW TO USE: Our natural fruit acid (Malic Acid) is a natural enemy to mineral deposits (calcium and lime), but less effective on iron and rust. 

For light water spots, spray on to a dry surface and allow to sit for 1-5 minutes, agitate, then rinse. If you have a heavy build-up, allow sitting for longer periods of time: 15 minutes or more, while keeping it moist. Agitate and rinse.

Supreme Surface

Found this online. We had some hard water scale in the sink, and this worked well in removing it. Was pleased with the results.

Magic in a bottle

Top notch customer service and prompt delivery. I absolutely love the **** and mineral removal. Makes cleaning effortless without vigorous scrubbing on tub and tile. .

Whose fault is it???

Not good. I read the directions and watched the video. The spots are worse now than they were before. I guess it’s the wrong product for my engineered stone.

Supreme Surface Cleaners

The product detail page clearly says: WHAT NOT TO EXPECT - This product is not for use on polished or honed quartz, marble, travertine, or other calcareous stones. Additionally, this product will not remove chemical or physical damage from etching, abrasion, or scratching. Does not make surfaces smoother, add shine, or provide additional protection beyond its cleaning capabilities. Not as effective on rust. I think you'll find this link helpful: https://www.supremesurfacecleaners.com/blogs/stonecare/remove-water-spots-calcium-lime-from-quartz-countertops.

Better than New

I love this product!!! I have tried many different products trying to get rid of the fog of white on our black granite sink nothing worked. I went on Youtube and found a video on Supreme Surface products. I ordered all 3 Supreme products used in video. I followed the directions that came with products and I was amazed at how our sink looked. So happy to have our beautiful black granite sink back. My husband says it looks better than when we bought it.

Wonderful products!

We have new quartz counters in our kitchen and I was nervous about the upkeep and potential staining. Since I learned of these products I have no fears cooking in my kitchen! The products work well, smell great, and make my counters shine while protecting them. I couldn't be happier! I enjoy knowing my counters and kitchen will stay safe for years to come.

Help with ****

This item worked very good on the hard water deposit, ****, etc. on my black composite granite sink. It was starting to look pretty **** but a few applications of this product started bringing back the look of my sink when it was first installed. Now I want to buy the other products that go along with this.
