By Michelle Rosique, Buzz60

The bathroom can be the toughest room in the house to get clean -- but thankfully, this one ingredient is the toughest on bathroom germs.

Here are four ways white vinegar can clean even the dirtiest bathroom:

1. To de-clog a shower-head, fill a large plastic ziplock bag with white vinegar and tie the bag around the shower-head with a rubber band. Leave for two hours, remove, and wipe down with warm water for a shower-head that'll look brand new.

1. Rhubarb
Rhubarb isn't on most Americans' list of favorite foods, but by rubbing its leaves on pots and pans, you can remove burn marks. If the inside of your pot is scorched, fill it with some stalks and water and boil for a few minutes.
2. Ketchup
Hold the ketchup on your hot dog, but use it to clean copper or brass. The acid from the tomatoes helps fade discoloration.
3. Banana
Blend banana peel with water as a polishing agent for silverware.The natural oils in walnuts can lift scratches in wood furniture.
4. Coffee
If your fridge still smells like last week's fish dinner, place a dish of dry coffee grounds to act as a natural deodorizer.
5. Cucumber
Cucumber is good in a salad, and great as an eraser for scuff marks on walls.
6. Corn starch
Corn starch thickens soups and lifts up stains! Cover a fresh carpet stain with corn starch, then vacuum up 30 minutes later.

2. Clean bath or sink taps by soaking a hand towel in white vinegar and wrapping the soaked hand towel tight around the tap. Leave for a few hours and then remove. Your taps will come out looking twice as shiny.

3. To remove grout between bathroom tiles, use a plastic spray bottle to spray white vinegar between tiles and scrub with a toothbrush.

4. White vinegar can be used to clean all the built up germs that can accumulate on a used loofah. Soak your loofah in a bowl of white vinegar and warm water and leave overnight. Remember to rinse thoroughly before using.

The best part of these hacks is that you likely already have white vinegar sitting in your home.

TO GO WITH AFP STORY BY MAUDE BRULARD A view of the bathroom at the world's first real-life 'sand castle hotel', constructed from tonnes of sand and enforced with wood, in the small southern Dutch city of Oss, on October 2, 2015. Curious tourists and the young at heart this summer flocked to Oss to spend a night, for 150 euros ($167) per night, in a specially-built room deep inside the heart of the massive castle sculpture made entirely of sand. Two sand hotels were built in the Netherlands at venues where annual sand art sculpture festivals are being held: one in Oss and the other in the northern Frisian city of Sneek.

TOKYO, JAPAN - JANUARY 6: EXCLUSIVE A urinal that has a video game console above it in the SEGA World complex in Akihabara Electric Town, Tokyo, Japan. For men a stroll to the gents has become a leap into the twenty first century, thanks to the SEGA video games corporation. The company has developed a new entertainment system which is incorporated into a public lavatory. Now rows of peeing men can spend a penny and get a great video game experience while they are at it. The 'Toylet' male urinal video game provides a choice of sumo wrestling, erasing graffiti and dousing an exploding volcano. The 'Toylet' works by a pressure sensor in the base of the urinal measuring the strength and location of the urine stream as it hits the basin. An LCD screen displays the game graphics and rewards the strength, length and accuracy of the pee through a typical video game points system. There are currently no plans for a multiplayer version of the 'Toylet'. (Photo by Matthew Tabaccos / Barcroft Medi / Getty Images)
