Boys are gross. Facts of life. I am out numbered here with my husband and son. If that wasn’t already a task in itself for bathroom clean up, add in hard water and constant fight of mildew from the humidity and water making friends. IE: GROSS!! Sharing a bathroom with boys can lead to wondering what the black mark is, what that puddle is, or what is sitting in the sink. I don’t ask, I don’t question it..I just go in and pray to come out in one piece.
I had heard a few tidbits from a friend about cleaning with vinegar but never had tried it myself. I figured it was left best for salad dressing. That is until Four Monks Cleaning Vinegar offered to share some cleaning tips with me and send me armed to the bathroom before the holiday season started. I kind of do need to let guests go in there…right?
There are so many areas in your life that you can use Four Monks Cleaning Vinegar for but I felt I had to take on the dirtiest of them all to really test it out. So armed with gloves, bottles of Four Monks Cleaning Vinegar and some scrubbing pads, I went in.
First, I will state that I felt it was unfair to show all the grime left behind but even what I am sharing is pretty gross. Cleaning something that is not too dirty would not be fair.
The worst spots were certainly the sink, the shelf that holds all their hygiene items (don’t even get me started with how it can be so gross!), the shower shelf that seems to collect mildew and mold fast with this Florida humidity, and the stool, as this is a handicapped bathroom. The mud prints and pee puddles are easy enough to clean up. These four spots…needed some hard love.
It’s crazy that I had never tried using any type of vinegar to clean before. I’m sure the aroma could be one reason I steered away but with the products from Four Monks, the smell is not as overwhelming. I would still clean within a well ventilated area.
I also did not realize how many ways you could utilize vinegar to clean! I do suggest checking out all the vinegar cleaning tips you can but some of the ones that threw me were that you could use it to clean up baby toys, pets, , help remove rust on tools, and so much more! The Four Monks all want to help you learn the best ways to clean!
My husband works in the labor field so seeing dirt and grime fly off in the sink is nothing new, he can even manage to leave finger prints all up the side of the fridge from heading straight there when walking in the door.
The next projects I am taking on is the 20 year old tiles that look dull and gross, the outdoor play toys, and the dogs are going to get the shiny hair treatment for the holidays!
Could you use Four Monks in your home to help clean up after the boys? Now, if only I could get them to utilize the cleaning products, then the Four Monks would have created a vacation for me as well!
Want to see the difference in your cleaning too? Visit Walmart Supercenters and stop by the vinegar aisle to pick up your spray bottle of Four Monks.
