CLEANING A FIBERGLASS/PLASTIC SHOWER PAN

USE BAKING SODA AND VINEGAR DILUTED 1:1 WITH WATER. YOU MAY NEED A SCRUB BRUSH, BUT IT WILL DEFINITELY CLEAN THE PAN. SPRINKLE THE BAKING SODA GENEROUSLY AND THEN DOUSE WITH THE VINEGAR SOLUTION. WAIT FOR THE FIZZING TO STOP, THEN SCRUB RIGHT AWAY. LETTING IT SIT FOR AWHILE DOES NOT HELP. YOU MAY NEED TO RINSE AND REPEAT, BUT IT WILL WORK.

I HAD TRIED A MYRIAD OF OTHER PRODUCTS, INCLUDING LETTING BLEACH JUST SIT THERE FOR HOURS, BUT THIS TRULY SAVED ME FROM POSSIBLY PAINTING THE PAN OR REPLACING IT. DO NOT USE VINEGAR SOLUTIONS ON GROUT OR GRANITE. IT WILL ETCH THE GRANITE AND DISSOLVE THE GROUT.

Sprinkle baking soda on the surface being cleaned (as long as it is safe to do so). Scrub with a sponge or plastic brush to work in the baking soda. Rinse with clean water and the vinegar smell should disappear.24 Dec 2009

My ice cubes have a funny odor/taste.


Does your refrigerator have a water filter? if it has one it will be in the kickplate/grill below the freezer door. If it has one replace the filter.

detergent stains on the finish of the washer and dryer


Try one or all of the cleaners listed below to remove the stain. Hope this helps you.
  • Oxygen bleach
  • Rubbing alcohol
  • White vinegar
  • Baking soda
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Acetone
  • Paint thinner
Steps to Remove the Stain:
  1. Laundry soap dyes are usually more difficult to remove than other colors.² However, oxygen bleach, such as Oxi-Clean, can sometimes clean away even the red stains. Sprinkle the powder on a damp sponge and scrub away the stain.
  2. Soak a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and wipe away the detergent stain. If the stain is not immediately lifted, allow the alcohol to soak for several minutes.
  3. Vinegar is effective on many kinds of stains. Make a solution of one part vinegar in two parts water and sponge the vinegar onto the stain.
  4. Baking soda can be effective for removing detergents from appliance surfaces. Sprinkle baking soda on a damp sponge and clean the stain until removed.
  5. Combine equal parts of 3% hydrogen peroxide with water and sponge the stain with the solution.
  6. Soak a cloth with acetone nail polish remover and use it to wipe off the stain. If the stain does not wipe off right away, it may help to lay the cloth over the stain to soak for a few minutes.
  7. As a last resort, wipe paint thinner on the stain. Paint thinner can remove most dye stains. However, you may want to test this on a small, hidden area first to be sure the paint thinner won't damage the lacquer on the appliance or cause any other adverse effects.
  8. Once you have removed the stain, wash the area with soapy water to remove any residue from the cleaning solution.
