#1. Your Brass Fixtures Are Faded
Brass fixtures can get cloudy looking and faded over time. Don’t waste money buying new fixtures or an expensive brass cleaning agent: You can use household staple items to make them gleam like they’re brand new! Make a paste that’s equal parts lemon juice and baking soda. Dip an old toothbrush in the mix and scrub the fixtures, Give the solution a few minutes to dry and then buff it with a clean cloth.
#2. Mildew On Shower Curtains
Removing mildew from your shower curtain can be a real pain. Luckily there’s a fairly simple way to take care of this problem! Mix a solution that’s one gallon of warm water and ½ cup of bleach into a bucket. Put on some gloves and soak a sponge in this cleaning solution. Give the sponge a squeeze or two to wring out any drips and then use the sponge to wipe the mildew clean. Once the mildew’s been removed, rinse off the curtain using the showerhead.
#3. Mineral Deposits On Your Faucet
Hard water and wear and tear can cause deposits of minerals to build up on your faucets. These can be cleaned off fairly easily. Get a bottle of white vinegar and some paper towels. Soak the towels in the white vinegar and then wrap them around the faucet. Let them remain wrapped around it overnight. The next day you should remove the towels. Fill up your basin with warm water, adding in a bit of dish-washing liquid. Dip an old toothbrush in this solution and use it to scrub down the faucet. The white vinegar should have already softened and worn down the mineral deposits overnight, making them no match for your white vinegar toothbrush.
#4. Your Glass Shower Doors Are Filthy
Minerals can also build up on your shower doors. You can clean the glass doors by spraying them down with white vinegar. Let the vinegar sit for a few minutes. The next step is creating a paste with equal amounts baking soda and salt. Use a damp sponge to apply this paste on the door. Give it a a thorough scrub, and then rinse it off with warm water.
#5. There’s Mildew On Your Grout
Is there mildew growing on your grout? You can clean it with (yep, you guessed it) white vinegar! Spray the grout down with the vinegar and then scrub away at the mildew with a toothbrush. If mildew is settling on tile grout, you can remove it by mixing together a solution of equal parts water and chloride bleach.
