Removing Hard Water Stains

That’s right, a lemon!  I just cut it in half and use the actual lemon to scrub the hard water stains on any fixture. 

Like I said, just rub the lemon on the fixture and rinse.  The spots will magically disappear before your eyes and you’ll be left with this!

No more ring around the tub!
Next, I put the baking soda and white vinegar to work on the sinks and this time I remembered to take pictures of it in action.  Check it out.
This is my sink before I cleaned it.
Here the baking soda and vinegar are working their magic.
Once I started scrubbing, the baking soda and vinegar mixed together into a paste that really made the sink and faucet shine!
Like new!  Again, make sure to rinse well with hot water or the baking soda will leave a cloudy white residue.
The last thing I tackled was the toilet.  I saved it for last because it’s my least favorite job and it’s probably the most embarrassing photo to share with you.  First, a few tips. I sprinkle the inside of the bowl with baking soda then I spray it with vinegar.  I let the foam work for a few minutes then scrub with a toilet brush.  Next, I spray down the whole toilet with vinegar and wipe it clean.  That’s it.  It only takes a few minutes and the vinegar acts as a disinfectant killing the germs, neutralizing odors and removing all evidence of accidents from little boys who still have trouble aiming.  Here’s the proof.
As much as I hate to admit it, this is the before photo of the toilet.
And here is the after.  All clean!
That’s it.  Three inexpensive, easy to find, all natural ingredients to clean, deodorize and disinfect the bathroom.
