IN FOCUS: WHAT THE HACK (BATHROOM EDITION) By Nicole Kow
Home maintenance can sometimes be a bit of a wonder. Should you call someone to handle it or could you do it yourself are questions that come about especially when an urgent fix is required. While an air conditioner breaking down does require professional deployment, a shower head spruce or a clogged sink could still be in the power of your hands. This issue we introduce you to our other web-series – What The Hack and take you through two useful bathroom hacks.
Have you ever had a bath and just shudder at the state of your shower fixtures? The constant exposure to water and mineral build-up can corrode the metal plating leaving it dull and old. In this webisode, watch as we remove the grime off an old shower head with just two simple things – toothpaste and a tooth brush. Simply brushing toothpaste over the required areas, your shower head can have a new lease on life.
Simple yet handy kitchen ingredients to have at home are vinegar and baking soda. These very two products are the go-to items of house cleaning and maintenance. In this webisode, a clogged sink can be a huge problem. One method is to use a plunger. Alternatively, if a plunger is nowhere in sight, head over to your kitchen to grab a box of baking soda and a bottle of vinegar. Firstly, try and scoop up as much liquid from the sink. Baking soda helps absorb liquid so sprinkle a generous amount around the remnants of your clogged sink and especially into the drain opening. Then pour vinegar into the sink. The vinegar will help loosen the residue. End off with pouring hot water until the residue clears.
That’s as simple as it gets when your stuck in a pickle while dealing with bathroom maintenance issues that may arise overtime. Stay tuned to our Youtube page for more hacks in the coming months!
