So, I've told you how we closed on a house this past Friday. The very next day we started on painting and cleaning our new house. The previous owner had been living there barely. He and his wife lived farther west of the house, and he spent maybe a few hours there, tops. And boy did it show! The house is dirty! Lucky for my family, I can clean anything, and make it look great. Today I want to share how I restored the most disgusting bathtub faucet set using 1 ingredient, and it's 1 ingredient found in every house across the United States! Don't believe me? Let the picture speak for itself!
Yep, you read right, I just used distilled vinegar! My loving husband took apart the entire faucet on the tub and broke everything down into pieces for me so that everything could get nice and clean. I then put the pieces into bowls and covered it with straight vinegar. DO NOT dilute it! Vinegar breaks up the hard water stains and the mold that was growing in the plastic knob.
|Before I soaked them. Notice the dull grey color and the mold growing in the plastic knob?|

|So much better! The hard water is gone, and the set looks brand new!|
Until Next Time,
