Use Vinegar to Clean Your Bathroom and Save Money Too

Posted on April 2, 2015. Filed under: Cleaning Bedroom, Green Cleaning | Tags: , , , |

White vinegar is a natural, inexpensive, and highly effective cleaning and sanitizing agent.  It’s widely available in gallon size jugs in supermarkets and big box stores. The following are among the many ways it can be used to make your bathroom sparkle:

  1. Floors: Dilute ¼ cup of white vinegar in a bucket of warm water to clean any type of floor except marble or wood.
  1. Mold or soap scum on walls and shower curtains: Apply white vinegar with a sprayer and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse and let dry.
  1. Shower heads: Pour vinegar into a bag and use rubber bands to tie the bag over the shower head, or remove the shower head.  Let it soak overnight, and rinse.
  1. Windows and mirrors: Mix ¼ cup of vinegar with a tablespoon of Castile soap and 2 cups of water in a spray bottle. Spray windows and mirrors and wipe with a sheet of newspaper.
  1. Unclog and deodorize drains: The combination of vinegar and baking soda is one of the most effective ways to unclog and deodorize drains. It’s also far gentler on your pipes (and your wallet) than commercial drain cleaners. Use a funnel to pour 1/2 cup baking soda followed by 1 cup vinegar into the drain. When the foaming subsides, flush with hot water. Wait five minutes, and then flush again with cold water. Besides clearing blockages, this technique also washes away odor-causing bacteria.

Why use harsh, expensive chemical products when vinegar can do the same job?  You’ll soon discover many additional uses for this natural, non-toxic cleaning agent that saves money and helps to protect the environment.

Great Service for Busy Family

With time not on our side during the week, we began using Sponge & Sparkle a couple months ago. Read the reviews on Kudzu, after a friend suggested we use them. So far, going great. I only wish we could clean our house as fast as they do, remarkable! Very nice people to work with.

My house is CLEAN!

We have had Sponge & Sparkle for a few years now and I am a fussy homeowner. They do a fantastic job–coming home after a hard week, it is so wonderful to have everything so clean it sparkles. Baseboards, blinds, all the surfaces are spotless. And they come on time every time. Great cleaning service.
