Hard water stains and mineral deposits can leave something that is actually clean, looking filthy. Look at the rack that goes under my dish rack. I clean this at least once a week, but due to the mineral deposits from the water dripping on it, it never “looks” clean.
I have tried everything I can think of to clean it including harsh chemicals and my favorite tool the magic eraser. Even the magic eraser did nothing to it. Well finally I have figured out how to clean off these horrible stains. WHITE VINEGAR!!!! I guess I should have tried this sooner as I use it to clean everything else in my house. For some reason, I just did not think it would work. Well I was wrong.
All I did was pour some undiluted white vinegar onto the drain board and let it sit about 10 minutes. Then I scrubbed it gently with an old toothbrush and voila! It looks like new. This method could be used on shower doors, sinks or anywhere else that gets mineral deposits. Put it in a spray bottle to clean the shower. It works beautifully. Check out the pictures of my drain board. Seeing is believing. Good old white vinegar proves to be the champion cleaner again. Click here to see how you can use white vinegar to clean your floors.

What other things do you use white vinegar to clean? I would love to hear from you!
