{Simple Solutions} - How To Get Rid of Hard Water Spots

I come from a town that is infamous for it's 
crappy hard water.
It has improved somewhat over the years, 
but it tastes terrible, rusts metal, and leaves behind
film and grime on glass.

You think I'm joking?
One day I was at school, and I went to get a drink from the 
drinking fountain, and the water came out orange.
Yes, you heard me. Orange.

Needless to say, I wasn't thirsty anymore.

After battling hard water spots for many years,
I finally found an easy, homemade recipe
that works wonders on glass!


Yuck. Notice the film of grime on this glass?


All you need to do is take 1 part vinegar and 1 part water,
and scrub away. I use an old toothbrush, and it works wonderfully.


After you have scrubbed with vinegar, just rinse, and you're done!


I love cleaning with vinegar.
Did you know that you can use vinegar to clean the bathroom?
You can clean the sink, tub, and even the toilet!
For the sink, tub, and countertops, use the vinegar/water solution.
To clean the toilet, use undiluted vinegar and pour it around the inside rim of the toilet bowl.
Then, simply scrub!

A few weeks ago,
my daughter spilled a blueberry shake on the carpet.
I freaked out because we are just renting,
and I was worried about the stain!
I mixed baking soda and vinegar together to form a paste.
I put the paste on top of the stain,
and worked it in with my cleaning toothbrush.
I left the paste to dry overnight,
and the next day I vacuumed it up,
and the stain was gone!
Amazing!

So get out there, and start using vinegar to clean!

  1. That is very interesting. I knew vinegar was good for some cleaning but didn't know about the hard water drops. My mom also introduced "Lemi-shine" a ew months ago and it is AMAZING. It is in the dish soap isle. Like 3-4 dollars. it is a detergent and you put half the amount of regular detergent (I buy cheapest kind out there cuz the lemi-shine does it all) in the dishwasher lid and fill the rest up with lemi-shine. The glasses come out SO shiny!!
    I am definitely going to try the vinegar for my cleaning though!
