Cleaning Hacks for your Bathrooms
In the Bathroom:
-- Spray the inside of the shower tracks with your preferred multipurpose cleaning solution. Use a toothbrush that you have covered with your cleaning rag and wipe it all down. If you need to clean more you can cut off fairly small parts of your Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and use your toothbrush to get it into the edges and crevices that need cleaning.
-- You can also use your toothbrushes to clean other small and not easy to get to places like the tops and bottoms of baseboards, heater/ac vents and the fan covers in the ceiling.
-- Dental floss is a great tool to get the nasties out of tricky spaces like faucets and toilet handles.
-- For an overnight solution to cleaning your shower head: pour white vinegar into a storage bag - enough that you can fully immerse your shower head into it. Tie it off and allow it to soak completely overnight OR all day while you work. All you will need to do is rinse it off. IF you have some harder to clean areas then you can use your old toothbrush and scrub away.
-- Toilet cleaning can be easily done by using a mixture of 1 cup washing soda, 1/2 cup peroxide, and a 1/2 cup of white vinegar in to the toilet bowl. Add your brush and let it all sit there for several hours. Not only are you cleaning your brush but your toilet will wipe down easily. This can be done over night or during the day. Just make sure you don't allow someone to use it.
-- Add a 1/2 cup of pine-sol or your favorite deep cleaner into your Toilet bowl brush holder (make sure animals and children can't get to it). This will keep your brush fresh and will discourage germs and things to grow there.
Tip #5: Refresh plastic shower curtains and liners by placing them in the washing machine with a few old towels, which act as scrubbers to help get rid of soap scum and mildew. Wash on warm with a normal amount of detergent. Rehang to dry.
-- Use 1 part isopropyl alcohol, 1 part white vinegar and 2 parts distilled water. I add in a drop or two of blue Dawn. This works fantastic for a streak free window/mirror cleaner.
-- A loofah sponge will clean away soap scum and bathtub rings with your favorite soft cleaner.
-- To clear scum and residue out of your drains: spoon a cup of baking soda into the drain (go as far down as you can) then pour a cup of white vinegar and let it fizz for 5-10 minutes. Pour a half gallon of boiling water over the top to rinse.
Make it a GREAT one!
