Vinegar is great for removing that icky crud that builds up around faucets. Take paper towels and wrap them around the faucets or where the build-up is. Then saturate with white vinegar. Leave there all day or all night. Take a tooth brush or some kind of small scrubber and remove the ick. Wipe down with the paper towels you used to soak it. Actually, the vinegar ends up sweetening the room. My kids like to mix baking soda with vinegar so they help clean sometimes. Vinegar is also a good replacement for fabric softener. Fabric softener will build up on your washer and cause mildew/fungus to grow in your washer. And THAT is STINKY!!! And it's difficult to get rid of.

I have been doing housecleaning for 25 years and have never found any thing to clean soap scum as good as the 365 soap scum remover. It is made in Canada and I am moving to Canada. I would like to know where I can get it in Nova Scotia Canada, if possible. Thank you, Love your store, keep up the great work! Terry

@Claudia Thanks for your patience in response. I reached out to one of our experts, Anna Madrona, and here is her response... "We don’t endorse any particular product, but we do suggest that you choose one that doesn’t contain petroleum distillates (you can tell if the label warns of flammability) or artificial scents (some of which can be neurotoxins). One pre-made furniture polish you might consider is: Method’s Wood for Good Furniture Polis.h Here is a very easy recipe for making furniture polish that has no petroleum-based products and it smells wonderful. You will want to use it right away because of the fresh lemon juice. The olive oil will help the shine and the lemon will help clean the wood. If you have pure lemon oil (such as lemon essential oil) you might want to add a drop or two, since it is both lubricating and antiseptic. Ingredients: 1 lemon 1 teaspoon olive oil 1 teaspoon water How to do this: Extract the juice from the lemon into a small bowl. Add the oil and water to the lemon. Stir it gently to blend. Dampen a sponge or lint-free towel in the polish and apply a thin coat to furniture and other wood surfaces. Rub it to a deep shine Happy furniture polishing!"
