Mildew, clogged drains, hair everywhere, dull shower doors, and don’t even get me started on the toilet. Yes, cleaning a bathroom can be quite challenging, especially if you pay attention to details and like to keep this as spotless as possible. But because we don’t want you to suffer every time you are given this task (which can be every week if you live alone), we are here to present you with the most extraordinary cleaning hacks to help you achieve a perfectly cleaned bathroom. Say goodbye to germs, dirt, and debris, and say hello to the perfect shower room of your dreams!
1. Let’s start with the mirrors, shall we?
Sometimes you can get the most expensive cleaning products available in the market, and you still won’t achieve the results you desire. This happens a lot with mirrors. While commercial window cleaners are the standard product people use to clean their mirrors, these products often leave behind some annoying streaks. Well, this is surely not what you want to happen, right? So, our first bathroom cleaning hack is a simple but effective recipe to make your mirror cleaning product. What you need is some baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. Spray it on your mirror, and then gently wipe it off using a sponge. All the annoying spots will be gone in no time. If you have shaving cream at home, you can try that as well. It will leave you with a shiny mirror, and it will also prevent it from fogging after your next steamy shower.
2. Time to take care of the bathtub
Your bathtub can accumulate a lot of dirt and debris, and if you don’t clean it often enough, it might cause your whole bathroom to look untidy. Fortunately, you can make your all-purpose bathroom cleaner to ensure that your bathtub or your shower looks as good as new. Mix half a cup of vinegar with ¼ cup of water and a full cup of rubbing alcohol. Dissolve this mixture in 4 quarts of warm water, and it’s ready to be applied. Spread it across the dirty areas and allow it to sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse it well, and there you have it – the shiniest bathtub you have ever seen!
3. And now, the toilet
Ah, yes, the toilet. The most dreaded element of a bathroom. While cleaning a toilet is not exactly a pleasant task, the feeling you get after cleaning a toilet is quite awesome! I know, satisfaction during your adult life can come from something as simple as a clean toilet. Well, achieving a perfect result is quite simple. Dissolve a bit of your mouthwash liquid into some water and apply the mix to the dirty areas of your toilet. Let it sit for about half an hour, and then scrub it using a toilet brush. After rising it off, your bathroom will look as good as new.
4. How to clean your bathroom walls?
Water spots can sometimes take over your bathroom tiles, and it can be quite annoying as these stains can make the whole room feel messy. To achieve perfectly polished tiles, soak a cotton ball in some oxygen bleach and gently scrub the spots one by one. Toothpaste or your standard mouth rinse is also good alternatives if you want to try this hack and don’t have any oxygen bleach at hand.
5. Off to cleaning bathroom fixtures
Bathroom fixtures need some maintenance to be preserved, but they might still get rusty even with all the care in the world. Even though getting rid of rust seems like a tough job, it doesn’t have to be. You can sprinkle a fair amount of salt over the rusty area and then squeeze a lemon on top of it. The lemon juice will start a chemical reaction that will dissolve the rust. The salt will then absorb the remaining rust stain. Leave the mix overnight and then rinse it off the next day.
6. Let’s not forget the ceiling
Everyone knows how to clean a bathroom floor, but do you ever take some time to clean the ceiling? Yeah, that’s what we thought. Well, cleaning your ceiling will be just as time-consuming as cleaning your floor, which means you will be done in a jiffy. Mix vinegar and warm water, then mop the ceiling using this mixture. Don’t forget to protect your eyes while doing this work.
7. And last but not least, the shower curtains
Not cleaning your shower curtains is a rookie mistake that can lead to an unpleasant “moldy” situation. To prevent this, don’t forget your shower curtains during your cleaning routine. Add 500 mil of all-purpose bleach to a spray bottle and add two tablespoons of dishwashing liquid. Spray this simple solution all over your curtains and allow it to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. Then, rinse it off and let your curtains to dry. We can promise you they will look brand new!
