    I had water spots on a perfectly good faucet on my bathroom sink. I soaked paper towels in vinegar. It was a disaster in the morning. Anyone have any ideas on what I can do next.

      What do you mean by disaster ? Vinegar is for lime deposits, not water spots. Usually just a damp microfiber cloth and a little elbo grease will remove water spots.

    I messed up, I should have said I put a little bit of (NON bleach added) liquid laundry detergent (the cheapest) to my vinegar because it has the agents that make water wetter and keep it wet on your faucets longer & cleans better without reapplying as

    Great tip! I also use vinegar and baking soda if I have enough at the moment. You may not believe this, but sometime if I have forgot to do my soaking of faucets and they are cloudy and company is coming, I just splash, spray or dribble some on and leave

    For the coffee maker itself I would use Heinz cleaning vinegar in it to see if that gets it unclogged. You may need to use the vinegar several times. You could even try using a vinegar cleaning once a week to prevent it from getting clogged. Most manuals

    I had a person who needed to soak his feet nightly with Epsom salt (1/2 c in 1 qt water). When done soaking, I put in toilet but didn't flush. I noticed the lime ring went away after a while. I've heard you can also use lemon or lemonade koolaid to do
