Thankfully, these clever hacks will make this not-so-fun chore much easier.
Use these bathroom deep cleaning hacks to get your bathroom cleaner than ever!
Use a rag or a scrub brush to get all around the toilet — and be sure to use baking soda and vinegar as necessary if you smell any bad odors! After you’re done with everything else, you can use a toilet bowl scrubber to scrub the inside of the bowl and flush when you’re done.
You can also pour vinegar in the tank to remove stains there. Oftentimes, stains in your toilet bowl come from the tank. White vinegar will help get rid of them!
If you have stains or grime that’s too heavy for the spray, throw a layer of baking soda in the tub and let it sit for about 30 minutes. After that, scrub everything with a rag or sponge. Do the same thing with the fixtures, shower head, and doors.
First, start by either sweeping or vacuuming the bathroom floor to get the dust out. After that, you can clean the grout by using grout cleaner and a wire brush. After that, you can either mop or use a Swiffer Wet Jet on the floor to finish everything off.
So, to get that nasty buildup off of your showerhead, immerse the head in a plastic resealable bag filled with vinegar, secure the bag with a rubber band, and let it sit for around an hour. When you remove the bag, run the shower for a minute or two, and then give it a quick wipe down. You’ll be amazed at the difference and will never run out of vinegar again.
All you need to do is mix just enough bleach with baking soda to make a thick paste. Make enough to line every place you see the mold in your shower (works on countertops too). Then lay it on thick and let it sit for at least eight hours. Wipe off the paste, gently scrubbing any stubborn bits off with a toothbrush, and give it a rinse. Bam! No more nasty shower muck in your grout.
However, if you are like most of the population and your shower doors haven’t seen a good squeegeeing in a while, then the Magic Eraser is your BEST friend. This works not just for shower doors, but also bathroom mirrors, chrome fixtures, and glass in general.
If you still have a few marks or stains in the sink, put Bar-Keeper’s Friend on each mark and gently rub it in, then wipe away. You’ll be thrilled at how your sink shines!
Fortunately, in order to get things nice and clean, you only need to remove the cover and use a screwdriver to remove the handle. Soak it in vinegar, give a quick scrub, and you’re back on track!
For mirrors that are beginning to build up with grime, dip a soft click in brewed black tea and rub it over grime to break it up. The tannins in the tea make it easy to remove, and your bathroom will be looking perfect in no time.
You can also remove the drain plug and clean the pipe leading from the sink. Simply detach the plug from the push rod, and remove and scrub the pipe using the toothbrush. A good cleaner to pour in occasionally is 1/2 cup of baking soda and 2 cups of hot vinegar, followed by 2 cups of hot water.
