Admin Post White Vinegar This mild acid is great for dissolving dirt and hard water stains and is completely safe. Particularly stubborn stains and residue can be tackled with undiluted white vinegar and this works wonders on cleaning the shower head. Simply pour a little white vinegar into a bucket or a bag and secure it to the faucet and then leave it overnight. White vinegar can also be poured into the toilet bowl to soak away stains and leave the toilet looking dazzling white. To clean kitchen surfaces such as countertops, simply dilute a little white vinegar with some tap water and pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the solution onto any surfaces that need cleaning, leave it for a few minutes and then wipe it away. You can also add some essential oils to the solution if you wish to give it a fresh and appealing scent.
