CLR Tackle

5 Minutes for Mom teamed up with CLR Bath and Kitchen Cleaner for this week's Tackle-it-Tuesday. CLR says it "cuts through calcium, lime and hard water deposits, soap scum, dulling film and dirt." We'll just see about that! My project involved the bathroom.

There was some icky, black stuff parked on the metal strip at the bottom of the shower door. I've been trying to get it clean for a long time, but nothing would cut through that grime. However, I put my gloves on, sprayed the CLR on it, and waited a couple of minutes with high hopes. Guess what? I wiped it down with a sponge, and it came right off! Here are before and after pictures.

And since it worked well on the grime on the shower door, I decided to try it in the toilet bowl. Not bad!
And if you tackle a project with CLR Bath and Kitchen today, and you visit 5 Minutes for Mom, you could win a cool prize package including $100!
