Tuesday Tip: Clean faucets overnight with no work

No matter how often you clean the shower, residue builds up over faucets and showerheads.

Thanks to this tip I found on Pinterest from blogger “Twisted Sifter,” I’ll never spend time scrubbing the tap again.

1. Fill a plastic sandwich bag with about a half-cup of vinegar.

2. Secure bag with a rubber band around the showerhead or faucet, making sure the grimy area is submerged in the vinegar.

3. Leave overnight.

4. Simply remove the bag and dry the faucet with a towel.

The buildup should be completely dissolved.
