While the bathroom might not be all of our least favorite rooms in the house to clean, we can all certainly agree that it is one of the toughest and most important to keep tidy. While it may not be seen by household guests as much as your living room is, the bathroom represents a personal space that definitely requires a clean atmosphere to feel comfortable in. We have some good ideas for you to keep your bathroom clean without using any over-the-top or harmful cleaning aids.
Get Rid of Those Pesky Water Stains
Whether it’s in the sink, shower, tub, or toilet bowl – Water stains always seem to appear in your bathroom no matter how hard you try to prevent them. What’s the solution? LEMONS! What’s the age-old saying? “When life hands you lemons, use them to get rid of the water stains in your bathroom.” I think that’s right. But just rub the lemon or lemon extract over the stains and ‘Poof’ they will gone and your bathroom will be smelling like lemons.
Avoid Streaky Mirror Marks
Microfiber cloths come in hugely handy when trying to clean the mirrors in your bathroom and around your house. One way to make it work even better is to dip the cloth in a mixture of vinegar and water. This will leave a beautifully clean mirror!
Clean the Toilet with Something You Already Have
What bathroom product am I talking about? Mouthwash. Pour some mouthwash into your toilet bowl and let it sit there for about a half hour. After the wait, take your toilet brush to the sides of the bowl and watch the stains disappear. You only need to use about a 1/4 cup of mouthwash for this to work.
Get Rid of Unwanted Mold and Mildew
Mold and mildew appearing in the bathroom is sometimes unavoidable. What do you do when it happens? Grab a spray bottle and fill it with water and baking soda. Shake it up well and then spray it on any areas that mold or mildew is accumulating. Then grab your sponge (one that you aren’t afraid to part ways with afterwards) and get to scrubbing! Great home fix to a nasty issue.
Vacuum BEFORE You Mop!
The logic may seem simple, but if you can vacuum up first then you will remove more dust and hair fibers before they get wet and stick to the floor. Just run the vacuum through very quickly and you will be able to get way more off the ground before you mop.
