If you are like most people, cleaning the bathroom is your least favourite house cleaning chore. It takes so much time and energy because of the different types of surfaces. But it needs to be cleaned regularly because its frequently use and, by its nature is the place where most of the bacterias live. These bathroom cleaning hacks can help you get your bathroom super clean without spending a lot of time and harmful cleaners on it.
How to clean the toilet
If you want an eco-friendly cleaning solution for your toilet, we suggest you use white vinegar. It kills bacterias, germs and mould and does not leave your toilet in the awful blue colour. Pour it into the toilet bowl and leave it for an hour. During this time scrub the toilet seat and cistern with vinegar and a sponge.
How to make toilet fizzy bombs
You can easily make toilet fizzy bombs with baking soda, citric acid and some essential oil for scent. Mix the ingredients in a bowl, use a couple of drops of water to prevent it from the fizzing action. When the mixture can form in your hands, portion it into a plastic ice cube mould. Leave it in the freezer for a couple of hours. Drop it every now and then into the toilet bowl and leave it to bubble away. Run the water and your toilet is clean and fresh with minimal effort.
How to clean your toilet brush
Toilet brush is one of the main reason your bathroom smells bad but we often neglect this area. This is the last thing that comes up in our minds that needs cleaning. Pour some all-purpose cleaner at the bottom of the holder and leave the brush in it. Do this every couple of weeks to be sure your toilet brush is clean.
How to unclog a drain
If your sink is clogged, spring baking soda on the drain until completely covering it. Pour some warm white vinegar on top of it. These ingredients will bubble up, it’s a normal reaction. Wait for the effect to go away and pour hot water to rinse the mixture from your sink.
How to clean mirror
An effective and natural way to clean a mirror is to use black tea. Brew three bags of black tea into a glass. Wait for it to cool down and pour it in a spray bottle. Try using old newspaper instead of a cloth. Spray the mirror with the black tea and rub it with the newspaper. Repeat two or three times if necessary. The result is a spotless mirror.
How to prevent the mirror from steaming up
If you want to prevent your mirror from steaming up, put shaving foam on a dry cloth. Rub the foam into the mirror and keep doing it until there’s no trace of the foam left. The next time you’re taking a shower, your mirror will be steam-free.
How to remove hard water stains
You can use lemon to get rid of hard water stains. Cut the lemon into two pieces and scrub it into the faucets. Wait for 30 minutes and wipe with a dry cloth after that. The acid in the lemon breaks down the water and it’s easier to remove the stains.
How to clean the showerhead
To clean the showerhead, soak it in a bag of vinegar. Fill a plastic bag with white vinegar, attach the bag to the head, leave it overnight and rinse it with water in the morning. Polish it with a microfiber cloth.
How to clean your bathtub
To clean your bathtub effectively, you’ll only need grapefruit and salt. Slice the grapefruit in two half, put salt on top of it. Scrub your bathtub to get rid of all the soap scum without using harsh chemicals. Leave it for 30 minutes and rinse it with water.
How to Clean shower tiles and grout
The acidic nature of the vinegar creates an environment that restrains the growth of mould and some bacteria. To clean the tiles and grouts in the bathroom, mix equal parts of vinegar and water in a spray bottle, spray your tiles and grout, let dry completely, then rinse. For tough black spots, make a paste of baking soda and water in a small cup, spray it with the mixture you created, wait for the bubbling reaction to stop and use a brush to scrub the spot. Rinse with water after that.
How to Clean Toothbrush Holder
To clean your toothbrush holder, use hot water and dishwasher soap to clean the stains and the toothbrush leftovers. If it’s dishwasher-safe, not made of wood or a reactive metal, put it in the dishwasher and run the normal cycle to clean. Next, fill the toothbrush holder with an antibacterial mouthwash. Leave it for 10 minutes, rinse it with water and let it air dry.
How to clean shower curtain
You can clean your shower curtain by putting it in the washing machine. Combine warm water with gentle laundry detergent. You can also hand wash it using baking soda and a microfiber cloth. Scrub the entire shower curtain. After scrubbing, with warm water. If there are any hard stains left scrub them again and rinse again until you have a clean curtain.
