A cheaper and quick way is to spray or pour a standard house cleaner such as Windex or laundry detergent on the spot you need cleaned and leave it for a good 15 to 20 minutes then rinse with warm water and it should go away especially if it is fresh leak. Good luck!
There are washable filters and one that can not be washed, trust the manual about that. Don't worry over or fight the small spaces that did not get clean. You will annoy yourself, and be limited in how much you can clean them if you try. View them as a very small reduction in the filter area, be proud that you are one of the few taking proper care of your ...
I've heard from professional drywallers/painters that they don't even try and take all the dust from sanding off, just a quick sweep of the walls to get the majority off. The really fine drywall dust will add itself to the primer coat and help smooth it out. I tried this approach when I remodeled my living room and the results were great.
You didnt have to use a mop, for next time all you have to do is take a broom to it and sweep the dust off, put some primer on, wait for it to dry and then take a pole sander to it, and dust clumps left on the wall is forever gone.
I went a different route. I bought a peel and stick hotel bathtub mat. It was guaranteed not to mold or turn slimy. And it hasnt in four years. I love it. Hotels cant afford a slip and fall or to have mold growing so they really do have the best mat. It has a strong adhesive that keeps it glued to the bottom. I found mine at Safetybathmat.com. I will never ...
This YouTube video compared a jetted tub cleaner, Oh Yuk to bleach and dishwasher detergent. As you can see in this video, Oh Yuk is considerably more effective than bleach and dish washing detergent. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASNCN0Y_hpI
There is nothing you can do once black mold grows, I've tried everything. Just throw it away and buy another and do this. When you get your new one after using the tub remove the rubber mat and roll it in a towel to dry it. When thoroughly dry no mold will grow. Sorry to say there is no easy way to keep your mat mold free other that to keep it completely dry ...
I think you have a "chrome" film over the faucet. It looks like the film has corroded badly. I have fixed shower heads with auto body primer (spray paint), spray paint for the finish, and then a gloss coat. This being touched a lot you can try painting it but replacement is probably the better option - and never buy any plumbing fixtures that aren't a ...
First of all, real "chrome" finishes are actually nickel. Secondly it is not a nickel finish, it is some kind of plastic or cheap metal engineered to look like nickel. Buffing with scotch brite might make the color more uniform, but the mirror look is probably gone forever.
Im am no expert in this topic, But I do clean metals often. I can only say what I would try. Most of the time the answer is just to polish and clean manually. From what I can see, you have relatively hard water, and you tried to clean mineral deposits off the faucet. The Vinegar was the correct application, however you are left with some residual mineral ...
I use lighter fluid and a paper towel. Works great!
