Let’s be honest, nobody likes cleaning the bathroom, but someone has to do it at least once a week!
Since you’re going to clean it anyways, you might as well do it right. Forget the harsh cleaning products that irritate your lungs and throat, you can use different items from your fridge and pantry to get the same results.
Plus, unlike other green cleaning solutions, you won’t have to put your back into it to get a good clean.
Here’s what you need to know!
5 Must-Use Bathroom Cleaning Tips
These simple hacks will have your bathroom shiny and clean in no time!
Bathtubs are a prime spot for soap scrum to build up and cause a slimy film. All you need to rub the gunk away is a bit of sea salt and a grapefruit.
Just slice the fruit in half, dip it face-down in salt, and rub it in the tub. Let it sit for a while and rinse clean. You can also use this hack to clean your cutting board.
Forget bleach! Keep your toilet fresh and clean with a bit of vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice. Sprinkle the baking soda in and around your toilet and brush clean using your toilet brush. Pour a bit vinegar into the bowl and flush.
To clean the seat and the remainder of the toilet, fill a spray bottle halfway with vinegar, add the juice of one lemon and fill the remainder of the bottle with water and spray directly on these surfaces. Wipe clean.
To get your showerhead shiny again, fill up a plastic bag with vinegar and tie it around the head, submerging it completely. Secure with a rubber band and let it sit for an hour. Rinse with clean water and dry with a clean cloth. You can also use this trick on shower knobs and sink faucets.
To shine up a stainless steel sink or other steel fixtures, saturate a cloth with vinegar and let it sit for an hour or so.
To clean an old rusty skin, make a paste of equal parts cream of tartar and lemon juice (or vinegar). Use an old toothbrush to brush the mixture into the metal and rinse thoroughly with water. Use a dry cloth to buffer dry.
5. Floor and Tiles
To clean the tiles in your kitchen and bathroom, mix a teaspoon of dish soap, 1/2 cup baking soda, and 1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide into your mop bucket and clean away! To make it smell nice and fresh, add a few drop of tangerine or grapefruit essential oil.
Bonus: Washing machine
Your washing machine is a prime breeding ground for mold and other harmful pathogens. To keep it clean and sanitary, fill the machine with hot water and add 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar (1).
Let it run a short cycle for a few minutes and pause the machine to let the mixture sit for an hour. Follow up by running the longest cycle. Once done, let it dry completely by leaving the machine door open overnight. While you’re at it, wash the inner rim too!
