5 Awesome Bathroom Cleaning Hacks

I will also hold the opinion that the bathroom is the WORST room to clean. It’s the one chore I dread even though it gets so narly. Here are some of the best tips and tricks for cleaning the bathroom. This post will cover some of the more specialized cleaning, but stay tuned for a detailed post on how to clean your bathroom in under 30 minutes.

Hack #1: Cleaning a Shower Liner

Have a scummy shower liner? Put it in the washing machine! Talk about quick and easy! It’s way easier to put it in the washer than to wash those suckers by hand. Put the liner in with cold water and add some vinegar for washing. You could try using laundry soap, but it isn’t likely to clean as well (here’s why). (source)bathroom cleaning tips 7

 

Hack #2: Prevent Musty Shower Liners

Speaking of shower liners, did you know that keeping your shower curtain closed after your shower will prevent it from molding and getting musty? When you leave the shower curtain to one side, the liner get’s bunched up and allows for water to remain on the liner for longer. By spreading the shower curtain across the rod,  you’re exposing all of the liner to the open air which allows the water to evaporate quicker and prevents molding.

 

Hack #3: Toilet Brush and Stand

Toilet brushes can get really gross really fast. One easy way of keeping them clean is by spraying them with a disinfectant after every use. I’ve been doing this for years and it’s kept my brush from turning into a germ fest. Another tip is to let it drip dry over the toilet bowl, which will prevent it from growing mold on the brush and in the stand (source). Speaking of brush stands, don’t forget to give those a good scrub every few months! I like to put the stand in my bathtub, soak it in some serious bleach and chemicals and then rinse it out.

Hack #4: Cleaning the Shower Head

This is one that most people don’t think about, but cleaning your shower head will allow water to flow normally and it looks a lot nicer. There are a lot of ways to clean the shower head from bleach and scrubbing to vinegar. I personally like to just spray the shower head with my Tilex and then use my scrub brush to clean it, but if you don’t have the time, an alternative is to put vinegar in a plastic sandwich bag and use a rubber band to attach it to the shower head. Leave this on overnight (or several hours). If it doesn’t work properly, all it will take is a quick wipe down to get the rest of the gunk off. (source)

Hack #5: Cleaning the Bathroom Mirror

I’ve never been a big fan of glass cleaners, especially on my bathroom mirror. Every time I do, I get streaks and smudges that are a pain to get rid of and never seem to really go away. So I use water instead. It rarely streaks, and if it does, all it takes is a little buffering by a newspaper or dry paper towel for it to go away. This method is cost effective, all natural and easy.

  4. Ah, the bathroom. My most-hated room for cleaning. Which is weird, because it’s not hard and I’m not a germaphobe. But…ugh. Thanks for these! My favorite is the drying the toilet brush because I HATE putting it away wet.
