My dear Shark Steam Mop started to act weird today: the power was on but only a little steam was coming out. Like it was congested or something. I was very sad to see my little friend like that!
I added a cup of vinegar to the water tank. Shook it all up and whaddaya say: working like a charm!
I’m thinking about starting to use vinegar-water mix in it weekly, the floors look great!
Another great use for vinegar is to clean the coffee machine: add pure vinegar in your coffee machine’s water tank and let it run a full cycle. Then repeat that with water until there is no vinegar smells left. And your coffee machine brews coffee like on the day you bought it!
Also, pour a cup of white distilled vinegar down the kitchen sink drain once a week. Let stand 30 minutes and flush with cold water. This deodorizes and cleans.
And if the water doesn’t go down so easy in the bathroom/shower, pour some baking soda inside the drain and add vinegar. Again, let it stand and flush later with cold water.
Vinegar is also our go-to for removing nasty odors (smoke, pets, grease). We put cups of vinegar in strategic places around your home while we clean. We will use vinegar-water mix to clean as many surfaces as possible. Yes, if you’re there during the clean (try not to be there) then your home will smell strongly of vinegar. But this smell will go away within a few hours and what’s left is odor-less home.
