Lime scale is the main enemy when it comes to cleaning the bathroom, because it is more difficult to remove than other types of dirt. Many products designed to remove limescale prove ineffective, especially when the deposits were not cleaned for a long time.
How to clean the shower
The shower head may be filled with deposits, so the water will start to flow crooked, or not at all, through some slots.
The best natural solution for cleaning the shower head is to sink it in a solution of vinegar. Put the shower head in a plastic bag (you can unscrew it, or you can tie the bag onto it), pour white vinegar the exactly amount to entirely cover the object and bind with an elastic the bag to the rest of the installation.
Allow to soak overnight and in the morning rinse thoroughly with warm water.
For the shower hose you can make a solution of sodium bicarbonate (3 parts) and water (1 part).
Clean the shower glass, using a solution based on lemon, sea salt and vinegar, in a 1: 1: 1 ratio.
Clean the sink in a blink of an eye
If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, or you have a small bathroom, without ventilation, you can successfully use lemon juice instead of vinegar.
Cut a lemon in half and rub the sink drain and the faucet with it. Leave it on for about 20 minutes and come back with a harsh cloth. Scrape where the layer is thicker, then rinse thoroughly.
Another method is to put a paper towel around the areas where the scale is and then drench it with vinegar. The smell is mildly annoying but doesn’t last long and is nowhere near as bad as the over perfumed chemical products.
You can also clean the mirror, if it has lime scale on it. You just have to walk half a lemon over its surface, then let act a few minutes, before wiping with a dry cloth.
Bathroom tiles – make them shine!
Stone is best cleaned with acid, but if you do not have lemon or vinegar, you can try other solutions. Sodas are a handy solution for large areas, but you should take into account that they contain food dyes and sugar. If the ceramic tiles are white or have a light color, it is not recommended to turn to this solution.
Get rid of the limescale that clogs your toilet!
Pour a liter of white vinegar into the toilet bowl and let it act for several hours or overnight. Next morning, flush the toilet!
Cola may be your priceless ally against the limescale deposited on the bottom. Pour half a liter and leave it all night. In the morning, do a good brushing and flushing.
Warning: Use only sugar-free cola, otherwise it will stick to the walls and will be difficult to remove.
