Unfortunately, previous owners of the apartment didn’t really take good care of the place. I don’t know about you, but when it comes to deep cleaning I don’t trust anyone with it but me. At least I know what I did then 🙂

My shower was a mess. Water wasn’t running properly. I saw this cleaning tip on Pinterest cleaning the shower head using vinegar and baking soda.

This is my shower before.

As you can see, pretty bad! Completely blocked!

This is the Pinterst How To with the link.

I followed the steps.

I mixed vinegar and baking soda in a bag and put it around the shower for 3-4 hours. You can leave it longer or over the night.

Don’t worry, it has to bubble like that.

Tying it around the shower was a bit of a challenge because it is a big shower and I couldn’t position it quite right so the mixture covers whole of the shower, but I managed in the end.

This is the result.

As you can see from the first picture, there is still some rust around. So I wasn’t very happy. But it has been like that for a long time, I know it cannot get cleaned just like that.

What I did was take a sewing needle and I had to punch a hole through every single nozzle. What I am happy about is that the solution softened the rust so It was easy to put the needle through.

As you can see, the end result was pretty good. It’s not as good as I would like it to be, but at least water is running through every nozzle.

I wish I could take the shower head off, but I don’t have a ranch and I’ve never done it so I’d rather not do it alone for the first time.

What I think would work is if I put it in hot vinegar.

Did anyone try anything like that? What were your results? How did you like it?

Leave a comment or some tip I could use! 🙂

DIY Make up Brushes Cleaning

Finally I found some time to clean my makeup brushes! Long over due, trust me, you don’t wanna know what they looked like. :/
I really wanted to order the Sigma glove, but at the moment there are just much more better ways to spend that 39$.

So I started googling for other options.
I ended up with this cute little fella! ^^

It’s just an oven glove, but it works great! I am really happy with it! And it was only 2$!
If you ask me, the concept is the same. It’s a silicon glove with some ledges.
Of course, it would be nice to have the original glove, but the job is done the same!
I clean it with a mixure of shampoo, conditioner and olive oil. They come out really clean and soft.

Some of the other options I saw (but didn’t find in the store I was at) was a peeling brush or a glove for grooming pets. Some people make it themselves as you can see on the last picture. You can also order little ones just for the fingers on e bay for a dollar.

In the end, I lay them flat on a towel and that’s it.

However, it isn’t good to do so. It’s better to hang them upside down. So next time, I’m stealing one of these ideas…

How do you clean them? Anyone got the Sigma glove? What are your thoughts?
Ps. Seriously, how cute is he?! Hhh 🙂
