There are several household chores that need to be done regularly to ensure your home remains sanitary. One of the less enjoyable chores is cleaning the bathroom.
Having to get on your hands and knees to scrub your toilet or clean another part of the bathroom doesn’t sound like fun to anyone. A great solution is to hire the professionals to handle this for you; however, in between pro cleanings, you may have to take matters into your own hands.
If this is the case, a must-have ingredient for clean and sanitized bathrooms is vinegar. In fact, ordinary household vinegar can help you with all sorts of tasks. Keep reading to learn its role in helping you create a clean, shiny, and sanitary bathroom.
Remove Mineral Deposits from Your Faucet and Showerhead
Have you noticed a white substance that has accumulated on your showerhead or faucet? If so, it is probably mineral deposits being left behind by your water.
To remove this substance, fill up a plastic bag with a cup of vinegar and put it over the showerhead. Keep the bag in place overnight using a twist tie or rubber band. As time passes, the acidity in the vinegar will begin reacting with the minerals, which will allow you to remove them using a toothbrush in the morning.
While this is a helpful cleaning hack, it’s not all vinegar has to offer.
Create a Homemade Toilet Disinfectant
Vinegar is one of the primary ingredients in homemade cleansers that is capable of eliminating both odors and germs. To create the disinfectant, mix a cup of distilled white vinegar with a half of a teaspoon of tea tree essential oil. Put the mixture into a spray bottle.
Once you shake up the mixture, spray it in the bowl and on the surfaces of the toilet (the handle, lid, and seat). After a few minutes have passed, sprinkle half of a cup of baking soda into your toilet bowl, and scrub the area using a toilet brush. Wipe down the handle, lid, and seat using a dry cloth.
Sanitize the Bathroom Floor
Vinegar can also be used for sanitizing your bathroom floor. The materials it works on include hardwood flooring, laminate, vinyl, and ceramic tile. To create this cleaning agent, get a bucket full of hot water and add a cup of white vinegar along with 15 drops of any essential oil.
Sometimes it will require more than just vinegar to get your bathroom clean. This is when help from professional house cleaners can come in handy.
Keeping Your Bathroom Clean
As you can see, there are several ways that vinegar can be used for cleaning and disinfecting your bathroom. Be sure to try it on other surfaces, too, as it is a handy product to have on-hand.
