Cleaning Shower Heads And Softening Washing With Vinegar


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

To clean shower heads that have been clogged with mineral deposits, place half a cup of vinegar in a plastic food storage bag and secure the bag to the shower head with a rubber band.
Let it stand for two hours then rinse and buff he mixture to a shiny finish.
One cup of undiluted white vinegar added to the laundry rinse cycle instead of commercial fabric softener will soften clothes, cut detergent residue and is a plus for family members with sensitive skin.
