I will admit, I was skeptic.
I have just converted to the “clean your house with vinegar” bandwagon.
Not because I have kids with allergies. Not because I am overly chemical conscious.
……but because I am a
cheap-skate , I mean frugal, and it really worked!
The new house contains a bathtub large enough to lose a child in. They jokingly refer to it as the swimming pool.
This tub, while ultimately enjoyable to soak in (and yes, you can be jealous of me…), takes a month of Sundays to clean and about a can of scrubbing bubbles at a time.
I had read somewhere on facebook that vinegar was tough on soap scum. Having nothing to lose except more money on Scrubbing Bubbles, I tossed some vinegar into a quart jar with some of the discarded orange peels which resulted from Jeremiah’s afternoon snack.
I just, moments ago, sprayed the tub with my vinegar and let it set for about 5 minutes. I came back with my sponge and did a quick swipe with the scrubby side…. and all that soap scum was GONE!!!! I mean gone, gone.
cheap-skate, I mean frugal mom has been converted.
