Homemade Cleaner for my Tub

Standard

A few weeks ago someone shared a few pics of the stains in her tub and a recipe she had found that promised to eradicate that stain.  A before and after demonstrated that, yes it had done the trick.  I decided to try since my water leave blue, yep blue, sort or a teal color, in my tub, shower, sinks in my bathrooms.  So far the only thing that even comes close to removing PART of it is CLR and I don’t like using that.  I tried it since it looked to be very gentle, which made me feel comfortable in using it.

Recipe:

12 oz. Distilled White Vinegar

10 oz. Dawn dish soap

Place vinegar in microwave on high for 2 minutes, remove and add Dawn, then stir.  Pour into a spray bottle.  I let it stand till it was cooled.  I then sprayed in tub and waited about an hour or so, she waited 3 or 4, then washed it out.  And, lo and behold, all the blue stain left.  Yes, I’m serious.  No elbow grease, just washing out and rinsing with hot water, maybe I could have even used cold as easy as it washed out.  I’ve used it at least weekly since, and the sink, too.  I am now using in my stainless steel kitchen sinks.  Works great and smells good, to boot.  Very inexpensive, can’t beat that either.
