This isn’t so much a pretty post or even very exciting (unless you get excited about cleaning) it’s actually a how-to post for an easy fix.
Our current home has well water (our first experience with this) which leaves hard water stains on the porcelain sink in our hallway bathroom. I have looked at this ugly stain for a while now (OK, 2 years) and I thought “I need to fix that” and then I would walk out and forget about it.
Well, I FINALLY googled it and it was a super easy fix using vinegar. Did y’all already know about that? Well, I didn’t and I was pretty jazzed that it could be so easy.
This is the sink now, all shiny and clean:
And this was the sink before:
Yuk. It was unsightly. I know.
It reminds me of my grandmother’s house that was out in the country. Not a look that I’m going for.
I thought that I was going to have to buy some kind of hard core stain remover to get rid of it, but all I had to do to remove the stain was to soak it in the vinegar.
I asked my husband to pick up a bottle for me and this is what he got:
The label says “Extra cleaning strength” but I’m pretty sure that’s just marketing and you can use any kind of white vinegar.
I poured it in the stopped sink and left it to soak over night.
That’s it. A tiny bit of scrubbing and the stain was gone!
I was so excited that something I looked up as a natural remedy actually worked! If I had known it would be that easy, I would have done it much sooner. Now my sweet little hall bathroom looks fresh and clean again.
I hope this natural remedy will save time and energy for anyone with this problem.
Have a great weekend everyone!
We are expecting a big ol’ snow storm this Saturday and my plan is to stay indoors, drink wine and clean out my closets. Multi task, y’all
