We’re willing to bet that cleaning the bathroom is your least favorite chore. Luckily for everyone, there are some life pro tips for making cleaning the bathroom easier. They also involve natural cleaners, which are less harmful and less expensive than chemical cleaners.
Try washing your bathtub with a grapefruit sprinkled with salt. You’ll be surprised at how well it removes the built up soap scum and calcium deposits on the ceramic. The citric acid in the grapefruit breaks down the calcium. You can also scrub your bathtub with a lemon to get the same effect. This is a safe and natural method of cleaning the bathtub. It is also cheaper than purchasing chemicals.
Tip: Are there bottles you keep on the ledge of your bathtub that leave a ring of rust, which you have to clean all of the time? Paint the bottom of the bottles with clear nail polish and they’ll no longer leave a residue of rust.
Calcium deposits and built up soap scum can be a pain to clean in your shower. Try preventing the build up of calcium by spraying your shower with a non-stick cooking spray. Let the spray soak for a few minutes before wiping it away. Note, your shower floor may be slippery after this, so be careful and/or buy a shower mat to stand on.
Tip: Sometimes, rubbing the shower doors with a dryer sheet will also remove water stains and soap scum.
This is a fast and easy way to get a clean toilet bowl. Simply let baking soda and vinegar soak in the toilet bowl for at least fifteen minutes. Flush the toilet and it will be clean! This is inexpensive and simple.
There’s a super cool trick to cleaning mirrors that you may or may not have heard of. It’s black tea! The tannic acid in black tea will clean your mirrors. Just brew some black tea, let it cool and use it to wipe your mirrors with a lint-free cloth.
Tip: Are you tired of the mirror fogging up when you’re trying to use it? You can rub soap on your mirror to keep it from fogging up.
The calcium and minerals in water build up inside of shower heads over time. This can clog the shower head and slow down the flow of water. To clean the shower head, fill a plastic bag halfway with vinegar and secure it to the shower head. Make sure the shower head is covered with the vinegar. You can secure it with rubber bands. Leave the bag on the shower head for the entire night and remove in the morning. Your shower head should be as good as new.
Run Vaseline on your shower curtain rings to keep them gliding easily along the shower curtain rod. They should stop sticking.
