We’ve always heard of the “magic cleaning” formula that is Vinegar + Baking soda. But always half-heartedly believe in its effectiveness. How can something so simple be the answer to cleaning stubborn stains?
Sooooo instead of just talking about it, we’ve decided to experiment to see whether the results were as good as others say. After all, seeing is believing!!
Experiment 1: Crestial basin mixer
Our friend had this basin mixer for over 6 years and despite cleaning it regularly there is still build-up of water stains.
So the chrome surface looks tarnished and dirty. At the bottom of the mixer you can see green dirty stains which looks more difficult to remove.
What we did is, we soaked the rag cloth into the (25/75) ml Vinegar/Water solution and we generously applied to the mixer and then washed it thoroughly. To our utter surprise, it really did work! Leaving behind a sparklingly new looking mixer.
For the stubborn grime stains on the basin itself, we left the cloth wrapped around the mixer overnight, come back the next day and rinse the mixer. Ta-Dah!! The grime really went away visibly up to 95%!!
So here’s the formula we used:
-3 tablespoon of Baking soda
-Small Cleaning Bucket
Step 1: Mix Baking soda, vinegar and water into a solution. Apply solution onto stains
Step 2: Generously apply and clean the solution onto the mixer
Step 3: Rinse the mixer thoroughly to remove all the residue
The results of this first mixer got us really excited! And we shared with some other friends who also tried it out and here are the results that they shared.
Experiment 2: Other Success story
For this basin tap we use the normal method as it has less stubborn stains on it. After rinsing the tap we can see the same sparkling effect as before, no more visible stains! This prove to us that this cleaning solution is not only effective but more economical than purchasing cleaning products.
Basically it seems to work very well for those stains caused by limescale which is common in our Singapore bathrooms. We believe that it will even work for shower enclosures and tile grouting too! Give it a try and shout out to us about your own experiments! It’s FREE!
