Introduction:Vinegar is an inexpensive alternative to bathroom cleaning supplies and provides the added benefit of protecting the environment from nasty chemicals and additives. Use vinegar in the bathroom to solve common cleaning problems.

  • 01

    Use Vinegar For Bathtub Cleaning

    Use vinegar to clean through soap scum and remove hard water stains and deposits from the tub. Saturate a cloth with vinegar and place over hard to remove buildup. Allow to sit for 20 minutes. The vinegar dissolves hard water deposits allowing you to scrub the area clean. Use an old electric toothbrush to scrub in tight places. The rotating motion lifts dirt and grime free.

    Use Vinegar to Remove Hard Water Stains on Chrome

    Use white vinegar to remove hard water stains and deposits from chrome faucets and showerheads. Place a saturated cloth over the hard water stain and let the vinegar go to work dissolving the hard water deposits. To clean showerhead with vinegar, fill a food storage bag with undiluted vinegar and place over the showerhead. Secure with an elastic band and allow to rest for ½ hour. Remove and scrub the remaining debris with an old toothbrush.

    Use Vinegar For Cleaning Glass Shower Doors

    Use a soft cloth saturated with white vinegar to clean glass shower doors. For severely stained doors or glass shower doors with excessive soap scum buildup, pour vinegar in spray bottle and wet down the shower door. Allow to sit for 20 minutes. Scrub with a stiff brush and rinse for a sparkling clean shine.

    Use Vinegar For Toilet Bowl Cleaner

    Use vinegar to keep toilets fresh and free of ugly hard water stains. Pour a bottle of white vinegar into the toilet and allow to sit for 30 minutes. Swish the inside of the toilet with your toilet wand to remove stains and flush away. To use vinegar in place of your regular toilet cleaner add 1 cup vinegar to the toilet weekly before cleaning with a toilet brush

    Use Vinegar As a Shower Cleaner

    Don't be fooled by the claims of expensive shower cleaners. Use vinegar instead to keep your shower tiles sparkling clean. Pour vinegar in a spray bottle. Spray down the tiles daily with the vinegar and wipe down with a soft cloth to keep shower tiles free from icky soap scum and hard water stains.




Final Thoughts

By using vinegar to clean your bathroom, you save the expense of buying several bathroom cleaning products-but best of all, you are doing your part to save the environment by using a natural green product free of artificial chemicals that may pose risks to you and your family.
