I used a trick I recently saw here…Using half of a grapefruit and salt


IMG_9881


...Sprinkle salt on the delectable and juicy grapefruit half liberally


IMG_9885


Wet your shower and tile and use the fruit as the scrubber


one half Grapefruit will do your whole bathroom...seriously


great on the fixtures too.

….And talk about a wake me up fresh smell!


Better than a fresh cuppa Joe.


really.


Try it.


Now off to see if it will tackle the discolored grout in our powder room…..

This is over the top!!!! I admit I couldn't figure hoow a bathroom and a grapefruit would hook up. If you think ab out it some people use lemon and salt to clean their copper...... Why not?????Maryanne xo

I saw that too and wondered if it would work, I guess it makes perfect sense.If you are going to use an abrasive cleaner why not a natural one. Love the smell of citrus so I am sure I would love this too, Happy Sunday,Kathysue

I'll be trying it...smells good! I just finished clearing my drains with baking soda and vinegar...fresh but not fruity :)

A old friend of mine used to use a half lemon and salt to scour the kitchen sink. This was 20 years ago. I used to think she was crazy but I guess she was way ahead of her time.

...I imagine all citrus would work, just that grapefruit is the perfect size for the shower and tub....hmmmmm....lime scented. Hello.

Linda@ Lime in the Coconut said...

Ooooh. And key is squeezing the juice (and you get pulpy piths...but they will rinse away)and letting it sit for awhile.

Scub away people!!

Ok, I have to try this. The idea of a naturally clean and citrus scented bathroom is too much to resist.

I can't wait to try this! I totally believe it works. I never tried it, but I often hear of people using lemons/lemon juice to clean their greasy and rusty printing presses, and I used some sort of orange-based cleaner for some of my old type and they are bright and shiny like new.

A.J.Barnes said...

I'm going to try this and will let you know...

BTW, I tried your watermelon cube with you posted over the 4th of july...it was a big hit...very cute...

I've used lemons and salt to clean copper but didn't know about grapefruit and salt. What a great idea!
Picked up a copy of "Kitchen & Bath Makeovers" and was so happy to see the article on your beautiful bathroom!
Cheers!
