Limescale cleaning

Pierre
BTG Store 151

Limescale is a mineral deposit that builds up on faucet, toilets, sinks and even blinds, it is a nuisance but easy to get rid off. You will need heavy duty cleaning gloves, brush, vinegar, and bucket, and borax, and last a spray bottle. All can be found at a local hardware stores or the super market  at a low cost.

The first step is to wear the rubber gloves to protect your hands. To get rid of the lime deposits soak the sponge in white undiluted  vinegar and apply a generous amount on all flat surface with the lime deposit.

To unclog a shower head first remove it from the hook on the wall and place the head in a bucket, then fill the bucket with enough vinegar to cover the shower head for five to ten hours. Next rinse with hot water and reattach.

To get rid of limescale in the toilet, first drain the toilet bowl and then pour in full cup of vinegar and full cup of borax. Leave the mix for four hours before scrubbing with a toilet brush.Vinegar can also act as a preventative by adding some in the toilet tank.

Next step is to fill a spray bottle with half a cup of water and half a cup of vinegar, great for aluminum blinds that are hung inside of a shower. Apply a generous amount on each slats and repeat for the other side of the blind, rinse and wipe dry with a clean towel.

Aluminum Blinds: Underrated?

By: Karen

I recently moved into a new house, with a lot of windows. I think there were somewhere around 30 windows throughout the whole house. And, of course, when I moved in there was absolutely nothing in the windows, the previous owners decided not to leave anything behind. Which, I suppose was fine, because I really did not like the look of the printed pleated shades they had in the windows. But it did mean that I was going to have to do some fast shopping unless I wanted the neighbors to know everything I was doing inside the house.

Venetian Blinds Gone Right

By: Nasim

Growing up I was very fond of the venetian aluminum blinds. Throughout the house we had all white aluminum blinds in every room. I remember growing to hate the look of them as they were everywhere and looked so plain and cheap.

Recently moving into my own apartment I began my search for new window treatments. I told myself I’d avoid any venetian blinds especially aluminums as they were very flimsy and the slats often got bent and would stay bent no matter how hard you tried to smooth them out!

Mini Blinds

By: Sai
I feel like mini blinds have been around forever. Why have they lasted so long? What makes them so special? Why do people like them so much? I remember when I was growing up you could just pick up a set of mini blinds at a corner store and put them up. There was one time that the blinds I bought were too big, but I made them fit. I took a knife and cut them to fit the window, those were the times. Nowadays mini blinds have grown to a point where they are all that matters. They are not your pick up and go type of blinds to just have privacy.
