Bathroom Cleaning Tips to Make Life Easier

The time has come. You cannot escape it any longer. The dirty toilet, clogged drain and stained tiles are calling out for help.
The bathroom usually gets avoided or left for last when it comes to cleaning. And for good reason – it’s gross! Here are some easy and effective hacks that’ll make the bathroom the ‘number one’ place you start with when you clean your home

The shower


Toilet, tiles by Natural Products



If you have it, you can use microfiber for all of these. I’ve even found it to be effective on soap scum in the shower.
If not, there are other natural options that work great too:
  • A 50/50 vinegar/water solution will clean tile, counters, cabinet fronts and soap scum in the shower
  • A baking soda and water paste will clean stuck on gunk in the shower and tub (use vinegar instead of water for really tough stains)
  • For grout, I sprinkle baking soda on the floor and spray with undiluted hydrogen peroxide and scrub with a gentle toothbrush
  • For stained tubs and really, really tough messes, this homemade scouring powder works great, though it isn’t needed for regular cleaning
  • For wall tile, painted door frames, spots on the doors, outside of toilet, etc, my homemade all purpose cleaner will clean and disinfect.

Air Freshening

Products like Febreeze and Lysol spray have a host of chemicals that can be really harmful, especially to children. To freshen the bathroom without the toxins, try these natural ideas:

Mirrors

Just like windows, mirrors can be cleaned with a 50/50 vinegar and water mix in a spray bottle and wiped with old rags from cut-up t-shirts or newspaper (paper towels leave a lot of residue with this method).
The easiest way, if you have them, is to use microfiber cloths (1 regular one wet, and one polishing one dry, or just one regular wet one and one regular dry) to clean without the need for chemicals at all.
