Bathrooms can be a time consuming place to clean! They get plenty of use and there are plenty of places for germs and mold to hide. We gathered some of our favorite bathroom cleaning hacks to help you clean your bathroom quickly and efficiently.
1. Scrub Away Soap Scum with Dryer Sheets
A tool that you might not even think to use in your bathroom is dryer sheets. You can add a couple drops of water on a dryer sheet and scrub away any soap scum on your shower or tub. Once you’re done scrubbing, rinse off the dryer sheet residue to reveal your clean shower or tub.
You can also use a dryer sheet to make chrome faucets shine. Who knew dryer sheets can be such a handy tool for cleaning!
2. Use Vinegar to Clean Your Shower
Heat up vinegar in your microwave until it’s hot, and then spray it on your shower tiles and door. If you don’t like the smell, add a tablespoon of dish soap to the vinegar.
3. Use a Brush to Clean Mildew and Mold
If you have mildew or surface mold collecting in your bathroom, use a clean dish brush to combat it. You can mix six cups of warm water and a quarter cup of bleach to create a mildew-busting cleaner. Scrub down the area using the brush and mixture, and then rinse really well with water.
4. Create a Baking Soda Paste for Mold Stains
If you’ve tried scrubbing the mold with a brush and it doesn’t look any better, mix baking soda and water to create a paste. Place the paste on your stubborn stains and let it sit for three to four hours before your rinse.
5. Grab Dental Floss for Hard-to-Reach Areas
There are some nooks of your bathroom faucet that are too small for cleaning tools. Dental floss is great at getting in these tiny areas to remove any buildup.
6. Use Denture Tablets for Toilet Stains
If you have stubborn toilet bowl stains or rust, drop a denture tablet in your toilet bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes before flushing.
7. Brush on Clear Nail Polish to Prevent Rust
Some metal containers of shaving cream that sit in your shower or on your sink can leave rust rings. They’re hard to scrub off and unsightly. To avoid having to scrub these off, paint a coat or two on the rim on the bottom of these containers. You won’t have to scrub off the rust again!
8. Use Baking Soda and Bleach to Brighten Grout
Grout, the area between tiles, collects dirt and grime and can be challenging to clean. Create a paste made out of 3/4 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup bleach and apply it to stained grout. Allow it to sit for 30 minutes, and then remove the paste with a scrub brush or cloth.
9. Use Bleach to Remove Marble Stains
Marble stains are frustrating and noticeable, but there’s an easy way to remove them using bleach. Soak a paper towel with bleach and place it on the stained marble, and then place a cup on top of it to hold it in place. Leave the paper towel overnight and the stain should be gone by morning. It’s important to test bleach on an inconspicuous area to make sure bleach doesn’t damage your marble.
