Our kitchen is cleaned thoroughly once a week
as explained in this post.
Countertops, appliances, floors and sink
are given a good overall scrubdown.
In general, I'd say our house is pretty clean.
Then I look closer and notice things like this...
Although it's not clear how this stuff accumulates,
it does show up, even with regular cleaning.
It can be quite a problem.
Here's the solution.
Simply pull out the sprayer and place it
in a shallow bowl of straight vinegar.
Leave it to soak for at least 30 minutes.
You'll find the gunk comes right off
with a quick scrub of a toothbrush
(retired toothbrushes are one of the best things to repurpose).
For the faucet base, simply soak a rag in the vinegar
and wrap it around like a scarf.
In just a few minutes' time, it'll do its magic
with absolutely no help from you.
A few passes with the toothbrush
and what an improvement!
That's the way we like it around here.
