Bathroom Cleaning Hacks You’ll Want to Share

Lemons for Cleaning PicYour bathroom is a busy place. In fact, it’s probably the most-used room in the house. Considering all the things that go on in there, it’s no wonder it gets so messy so fast. Cleaning the bathroom is never anyone’s favorite chore, but with these super-smart, super-easy bathroom cleaning hacks from your friends at Precision Glass, keeping your bathroom clean will be virtually effortless.

Spotty Shower Doors and Mirrors

Ask anyone with shower doors what their biggest bathroom cleaning pet peeve is, and they’ll probably say it’s the filmy buildup that makes the doors look dull and yucky. Soap scum and mineral deposits are hard to remove, but with this simple recipe, you can say goodbye to them forever.

  • Step 1: Spray the doors with vinegar and let it sit for a few minutes.
  • Step 2: Next, combine equal parts baking soda and salt, add a bit of water to form a paste, and apply to the doors using a soft sponge.
  • Step 3: Lastly, rinse well and enjoy your squeaky clean shower door!

Once you’ve got your shower doors looking like new again, prevent that grimy mess from coming back. You can do this by applying a light coat of lemon oil furniture polish to prevent scummy buildup in the future. Just apply the polish, let it sit for two minutes, then wipe any excess off with a soft cloth.

If your bathroom mirror is less than sparkling, forgo the Windex and paper towel and brew yourself a pot of black tea. Don’t drink it, though. Instead, dip a lint-free cloth into the liquid and wipe it over your mirrors. The tannic acid in the tea works wonders without leaving streaks.

Dull Bathroom Fixtures

If your bathroom fixtures are looking a little dull and/or spotted, try these hacks. To remove hard water spots on sink or bathtub faucets, cut a lemon in half and rub it on the chrome fixtures. The acid in the lemon dissolves even the hardest water deposits.

If your bathroom’s chrome is looking a little lackluster, you can give it a light coat of baby oil applied with a lint-free cloth to bring back its shine. Make sure to avoid these harsh cleaners that can damage fixtures.

Make Your Gross Grout Look Great
