Clean The Grouts

Get Rid of Limescale
Dried deposits are easily removed. Using hot water will always do the trick. You can also try using bleach or use an equal part of white vinegar if you don’t want to smell the bleach scent while cleaning. You can leave it overnight and rinse it off in the morning.

Goodbye Toilet Seat Stains
If you are a bit OC when it to your water closet, it could be annoying to look at it having seat stains. These seemingly stubborn circular stains around the toilet bowls are actually easy to eliminate. You will need to rub it with a pumice stone until the stain is gone. This method, however, doesn’t work on plastic and enamel.
Unclog Shower Heads and Drain
If your showerhead is not delivering the right amount of water from its holes, it might be clogged and due for some de-clogging.

Now, let the shower head sit in a solution of white vinegar-warm water overnight. Make sure you remove the solution before using it.
Now for the sink, continuously flush down hot to boiling water. You can mix the water with bleach for best result. If you want to go eco-friendly, use white vinegar instead. This should do the trick in unclogging the drain.
