- Gunky Grout Be Gone!
Gross tile grout in your shower is one of the most dissatisfying things to look at, and one of the hardest things to clean in your ENTIRE household. Mix ¼ cup of bleach with ¾ cup of baking soda to form a thick paste. Using an old tooth brush or a paint brush, apply the mixture to the dirty tile grout and allow it to work its magic for 10 minutes. Then, using a little bit of elbow grease, work the paste even deeper into the tile grout, allowing it to sit for a further 10 minutes and then rinsing. Voila! Just wait for the grout to dry and you will be amazed with the results!
3. Pesky Blind Dust
Mix some vinegar and water in a bucket and grab an old cloth, socks or undies and dip into the vinegar/water mixture, wiping down every individual slat. Use a different cloth to dry the slats after wiping over with the solution.
- Eliminating Water Spots from Your Kitchen Sink
Using a little bit of dish detergent and some warm water, wipe faucets, handles and basin of sink with a cloth. For hard to reach areas, use an old toothbrush. Rinse with water, and if any water spots or other dirty marks remain, use some vinegar to wipe over them. Dry with a soft cloth or rag. There you have it! The key to a sparkling kitchen sink.
