Ines de la Fressange’s Parisian Style has yielded many useful tips. Not the least of them is the old-school advice to rinse one’s hair with diluted vinegar, the cheap stuff. My hair is happier, and so, it seems, is my sink.

I use the same liquid “green” detergent to wash dishes, hands, and hair. I also use it to clean the sink and tub, scrubbing judiciously with a fresh tuft of the finest steel wool. The same plastic bottle of watered vinegar that rinses hair holds the second pass at the porcelain, that now gleams like new. Even the original clawfoot tub gleams like new, as does the odd batch of cotton laundry.
