InspirationEmbroitique Refrigerator Door Water Tray Gunk Cleaning Trick
DirectionsThe concept is to cover the object with vinegar, let soak about 3 minutes, then scrub with a toothbrush and dish soap. I know that vinegar is commonly used to remove calcium deposits, but the dish soap part is new to me. I have no idea what that would do to help matters, but I figured I would go with it since that's what the instructions called for.
|Before shot. Hey look! You can see my feet in the reflection!|
|Soaking the tray.|
I set a timer for three minutes to ensure both pieces soaked long enough, otherwise I would likely get excited and jump into scrubbing too quickly.
|Added a little dish soap and scrubbed away. Do you like my new scrubber?|
I could tell that our buildup of crud was pretty bad and would take more than one scrubbing to come clean, so I immediately re-soaked and scrubbed both the tray and the spout a second time. And the deposits don't show up when the object is wet, so I had to wait a long time until it air-dried to see the real results.
As you can see, the results aren't magical, but it's definitely much better than it was. It could maybe use a couple more cleaning sessions to hopefully get the rest off and some regular maintenance to ensure it doesn't get bad again.
I've also got a pin that shows how to clean your oven with baking soda, which is desperately needed since I never clean my oven and spills get burned on. It's pretty bad. If I can find the time when I'm not using the oven and enough time to get it started, I'll show you how that goes.
