5 Ways to use white vinegar when cleaning your bathroom


1. Paper towels + white vinegar= Clean shower heads

Do you have flaky shower heads thanks to mineral buildup? Spray straight white vinegar on your shower head will break down the mineral buildup. Allow the white vinegar to take effect for about 60-90 seconds then wipe away with paper towels. Repeat if needed.

2. Spray white vinegar on toilet bowl

White vinegar is a natural disinfectant. Spraying straight white vinegar on your toilet bowl (including the rim and seat) will reduce total germ count and break down any grime buildup. Follow up the spray of white vinegar by wiping down your toilet with a microfiber cloth.

3. Spotless mirrors

Foggy, grimy mirrors with scattered water stains makes it difficult for you to see your beautiful face every morning. To get the spotless results you want, spray white vinegar directly on paper towel and wipe your bathroom mirror in a circular motion. Follow up the wiping of your bathroom mirror with a dry paper towel.

4. Eliminate soap scum from shower tiles and countertops

White vinegar proves over and over again as powerful solution in anyone's bathroom closet arsenal. Sprinkle baking soda over your shower tile then spray straight white vinegar on the shower tile. Allow the baking soda and white vinegar to fizz and do their thing much like your second grade volcano. Let the solution to sit for 5-7 minutes then wipe off your shower tile with a clean rag. Repeat if needed.

5. Clean up your kid's rubber ducky

Mr. Rubber Ducky is probably not the only bath tub toy your child plays with that is starting to smell a bit funky or have some mold. Fill a gallon bucket halfway with white vinegar. Toss your kid's bath toys in the bucket you just poured white vinegar in and allow the toys to soak for 2-3 minutes. Be sure to rotate the toys if needed so all sides of the toys soak in white vinegar. When Mr. Rubber Ducky and his crew are done with their white vinegar bath, rinse them off with water.
