Thank you to everyone who read the last quick tip about removing mold from grout in your shower. Hope you got to try it and found it helpful. If you missed it, you can read it here. This week, let’s look at chrome fixtures in the shower. Mine are dull and have visible, horrible soap scum. I’ve tried various of methods I saw online, but none worked to my satisfaction. I guess my hard water stains are extra stubborn! But then I found advice at diyconfessions.com that worked using common household ingredients. First, I removed the mildew around my fixtures using my trusted bleach with paper towel trick.
Worked like a charm!
Then I made a concoction of vinegar, lemon juice, and dishwashing liquid in a spray bottle. I sprayed my chrome fixtures generously and let it soak for 30 minutes. Then I rinsed it with water. Amazing, right? Here’s the recipe so you can try it at home:
1/2 c. white vinegar
juice from 1/2 a lemon
1/4 c. dishwashing liquid
Directions: Add all to a spray bottle. Shake well.
You would think the lemon would make it sticky, but it doesn’t. Also, lemon is a natural disinfectant, which is perfect for the bathroom. Side note: the “after” pictures are so shiny, you can see my reflection. And since I had extra lemons, I couldn’t resist whipping up a batch of lemon bars. What quick cleaning tips do you use? Please share them with us.
Made with love
Good Nights for Great Tomorrows
