Cleaning bath and kitchen

With all the “construction” inside the house, cleaning just seems kinda…pointless. But the kitchen sink and the bathrooms have gotten to the point of embarrassment, so it was time to clean. I found a great solution that gets (almost) every stain out of the sinks and tubs, and it’s super cheap! And trust me, I’ve tried many different products before, and nothing works as well as this (don’t waste your money on Scrubbing Bubbles).

So what is this “magic solution”?

It’s as simple as “the works” and “Comet“. I get both at $.99 store (btw, “the works” is super expensive online). I am telling you, this stuff will leave your sinks, tubs, and toilets spotless! Pour some of “the works” on the area and sprinkle some “Comet” on top. If the stains are light, scrub right away, if they are a little tough (like my tub was) let it sit for 5 minutes, then scrub away. That’s it! (update 6/16/14: please refer to the update below before using these products).

Do you have any “magic cleaning” solutions? Please share! I am always looking for ways to make cleaning cheaper, faster, better!

UPDATE 06/16/14

A friend of mine just informed me that mixing Comet and The Works produces dangerous Chlorine Gas, so maybe it’s not such a good idea to mix the two. For more info, read this “Mixing Bleach and Vinegar” article and here you will find MSDS info for The Works. Serious stuff!

    The sink and bathtub look great! I have recently tried using baking soda with a little bit of water to make a paste to clean my white kitchen sink and it has also deep cleaned leaving the sink looking almost like new! Another cleaning solution I have also tried that works well in bathtubs and on tile in your shower is a combination of white distilled vinegar and clear Dawn dish liquid. You put equal parts of the vinegar and dish liquid in a spray bottle and spray the inside of your tub or shower. Let it sit for about an hour. Afterwards, you just gently wipe down the walls and inside of the tub or tile area and it is just like new.

    Thank you for posting your ideas! I am enjoying looking at your blog!

      Thank you for sharing and for the kind words! Yes, vinegar and baking soda are household staples! And for anyone who does not like using chemicals in their house, those are must haves (and lemon too!)
