Try It Tuesday

cleaning try it


I think I may be hitting the nesting stage about two months late. I didn’t really have the energy to get those nesting instincts during my pregnancy but I am feeling it now. Everywhere I look, I see something that needs to be scrubbed, organized, or de-cluttered (though, this could just be lie with two kids, ha!).

Even though I have a cleaning schedule and every room gets cleaned, there are still those stubborn spots that just refuse to get/stay clean. Like this:


Its seriously EVERY. SINGLE. FAUCET in the house. They all look like that! It grosses me out and is infuriating. I’ve used Scrubbing Bubbles and other cleaners but nothing has helped! So, instead of curling up in the fetal position and crying, I consulted the interwebs. I saw that vinegar is supposed to help break up those mineral deposits. I decided to give it a try.

Here’s what you need:



~a paper towel

~gloves (so your hands don’t smell like Easter eggs for days)


All you have to do is wet the paper towel with a little water and then drench it in vinegar. DO NOT RING IT OUT. Then, roll it long-ways and weave it around your faucet.



Let it sit for about an hour. Then, remove the paper towel.



Look how clean it is! Wooo! This is DEFINITELY a Try It WIN! (It should be noted that every faucet in the house has now received the vinegar treatment and my house stinks. But it was totally worth it!)
