Soap, shaving cream, toothpaste and make-up are just some of the things spilled on a bathroom vanity. The mineral buildups in hard water can also cause unsightly blemishes, stains and spots that need to be removed. Various synthetic cleaners on the market can wipe away these spots, but there are also homemade concoctions that work without the harsh chemical fumes. Some spots will take some more scrubbing and soaking if they have been sitting for awhile.
