    I noticed that your sprayer hose has hard water deposits in it just like mine.
    How do you get rid of that?

      Take a cloth, douse with pure vinegar, wrap around part of faucet/hose that has water deposits. Leave for about an hour, depending on how bad the deposit is. Remove cloth and scrub with hard bristled toothbrush, fingernail brush, or even a scrub

    For dirty shower heads, just attach a plastic baggie filled with vinegar and leave overnight. Amazing result the next morning. I use a strong rubber band to attach the baggie around the shower head.

    How can I clean a Glass Shower Door, I have a rental property, that door is white, looks like it has never been clean.

  • Tina Graves

    Take it off the rail(look up how to in a handyman video on you tube) and lay it flat on the ground or on saw horses and do the vinegar soak and scrub, then return to rail. Hopefully all the glass is in form of doors and can BE taken out and put back
