Tuesday’s Kitchen Tip {how to remove those nasty water deposits off your fridge water dispenser tray}

Pin It

Hello All! I know I am a day late on this post, but things have been hectic around here.
Today’s kitchen tip is how to remove those nasty water deposits off your fridge water dispenser tray! I live in the Houston area and we have extremely hard water and because of this we have to battle hard water mineral deposits.
I have actually tried to scrub, dishwash, and bleach this tray and nothing seemed to remove these mineral deposits.
Before and After Fridge Water Dispenser Tray
Well the answer was in my kitchen the whole time. White Vinegar!
Who knew?
I love cleaning with vinegar. I make my own glass and all purpose cleaner with a vinegar mixture and I use vinegar as a fabric softener in the laundry, but I never knew it tackled hard water mineral deposits until now!
I know this may not be news to some of you, but I was pretty happy I found a “green” solution to this battle!
Directions:
Soak water dispenser tray in white vinegar overnight and in the morning give it a soft scrub and rinse!
You will be amazed! I know I was :)
-This also works for shower heads
&
the kitchen sink sprayer!
