Do you like to keep your cans of hairspray and/or deodorant on the bathroom vanity? Somehow water gets everywhere in the bathroom, the bottom of the can gets wet, and you’re left with an ugly orange ring on your bench-top.
Now you can remove the offending by sprinkling a little bicarb (baking soda) and then rubbing it with some vinegar on a cloth or sponge. However, I’m a big fan of the principle that mess prevention is better than cleaning. What can you do to prevent the ring in the first place?
- Find another home – Put the cans in a cupboard or on a shelf when they won’t get splashed. (This comes down to what space you have available and personal preference.)
- Sacrificial surface – Stand the cans on a tray, plate or a piece of fabric (go crazy with the modge podge and craft something up to match your decore!).
- Seal the cans yourself – coat the ring on the bottom of the can with clear nail polish.
One less thing to scrub when you’re cleaning the bathroom – sounds good to me!
