I love me some Pinterest! Have you heard of the blogs that feature Pinterest fails? They are kind of funny, but sometimes it seems like the person was deliberately trying to fail. I have to admit, there are a number of pins that I’ve seen that make me think, “Yeah, right. There is no way I’m going to pull off those projects.” But I’ve actually tried some of the other ideas I’ve found. So I thought I’d start a series of posts highlighting my Pinterest Wins.
To start us off is the idea to use cotton coil (found in beauty supply stores) and bleach to clean shower grout. The original idea can be found here: Getting Mold Out of the Shower. I rarely use bleach at all – it stinks and it can ruin anything it touches. But showers sometimes need that level of help. Like mine…So I did pretty much what the original link said: line your icky shower grout with cotton coil and gently pour bleach over the cotton coil. Here’s a hint from me- get a cheap squeeze bottle to help control where the bleach goes. Use a Q-tip to push the cotton right up against the grout. Wait a while, check the progress, remove when done. That’s it! It works because the cotton coil keeps the bleach in constant contact with the grout, instead of it running down the drain.
What do you think? Easy and cheap, that makes it a Win!
I ended up getting cotton coil through Amazon.com as an add-on item after I’d forgotten for the bazillionth time to stop by Sally’s Beauty Supply while I was at Target (they are in the same parking lot).
