Before you work with any chemical always wear hand and eye protection and it’s always smart to do a test in a small area to make sure you are not going to cause an unwanted result.
1. Clean That Film Off Your Dishes
Over time it seems your dishes and glasses start to build up some residue even after running in the dishwasher. Pour one cup of white vinegar in your washer before you run it and it will not only clean that film off your dishes, it will clean the inside of your dishwasher.
2. Get Rid of That Stain Around Your Faucet
To clean that stain around your bathroom and kitchen sink faucet I use an old toothbrush and a mild acid toilet bowl cleaner. Just apply some evenly around the entire base then let it sit for a few minutes. Scrub with the old toothbrush then rinse with water. If the cleaner has too much acid it can tarnish your fixture. Most of the cleaners you buy at the department store today are going to be safe to use. Just be aware so that you don’t use too strong of a cleaner by accident.
3. Remove the Tuff Grease Stain from your Favorite Garment
Do you ever get grease on your favorite piece of clothing but the Spray and Wash won’t remove it? For years I have used citrus or orange-based degreaser on those tough spots. I just spray a little on the spot and let it soak for a few minutes before I throw it in the washer. Cleans it like new every time. Here is a link to the one I use.
4. Clean That Gray Out of the Bottom of Your Tub
These days it’s so hard to find a chemical that will work well on cleaning the base of the bathtub. I use a stiff brush with some old-fashioned powder Comet. I work it into a foamy paste and let it sit on the area for about 5 minutes. Then scrub and rinse, this takes a little bit of work, scrub in a circular motion and try to only scrub the area of the tub where the slip-resistant pattern is. After this step, I apply a mild acid toilet bowl cleaner and let it sit for a few minutes then scrub and rinse. Comes out like new every time.
