Get Rid of Hard Water Stains

To remove hard-water deposits in your toilet bowl, pour 1 cup white vinegar into the bowl and allow it to sit for several hours or overnight before scrubbing. A fizzy denture tablet works well too!

Use Lemon!

If your sink or tub is made of porcelain, rub a freshly cut lemon around the surface to cut through gunk, then rinse with running water. Plus, it never hurts to add a nice fragrance to the bathroom!

Quick Showerhead Cleaning

If you’ve been putting off cleaning your showerhead because you think it’s tough to clean, now it’s time to scratch it off your to-do list. Just unscrew the showerhead and submerge in white vinegar overnight, and the clogs will disappear. It you can’t unscrew it, fill a small, sturdy bag with vinegar and attach to the showerhead with duct tape, or use an old toothbrush and vinegar. Yep, it’s that easy.
