The Unexpected Way You Should Be Using Shampoo In Your Bathroom

When cleaning the home, it's easy to glance over the faucets and forget to do them justice, but this can result in limescale on the sink faucet and shower heads. Oftentimes, this is due to hard water leaving behind residue. If you don't have any cleaning solution on hand at the moment, there is another way you can buff up your spigot in a jiffy. You only need to utilize your shampoo in a slightly different way than usual.

If you're looking to save some coins on expensive cleaning products specifically for metal surfaces like your bathroom and kitchen faucets, then you may as well just use your shampoo to shine them right up. Shampoo has the basic constitution of any other liquid soap and works as great on any bathroom surface as it does your hair. If your 'poo contains antibacterial ingredients, then that's a bonus. That is why after shampooing your hair, you should pour out another capful and grab a good cleaning brush.

Shampoo is commonly used as a cleaning alternative

To cut down on surface grime and leave your faucets looking shiny, you just have to use your shampoo like you use any other cleaning solution: pour it into a bucket of warm water for dilution, dip your brush or sponge into the mixture, and clean away.

When wiping down your bathroom taps, however, keep in mind that the calcified droplets of water may not always go quietly. That pesky hard water buildup that you find on your faucets can be a headache to get rid of, sometimes even with cleaning solutions. In these instances, you can pair the shampoo with some vinegar. Vinegar is acidic therefore, it can dissolve that limescale pretty well. If that buildup won't budge, try pouring some white vinegar into a bag and securing it to your faucet head with a rubber band. Turn the tap on to fill the bag up the rest of the way and let it sit. This will cleanse your faucet head and you can then use the shampoo to shine it up.
