9 Must-See Bathroom Hacks
Clean mirrors streak-free
There is nothing more annoying than streaks on the mirror, so try this technique. Why didn’t anyone tell us tea and newspaper were the proper way to clean mirrors?
Clean tile in the shower
Power scrubber to the rescue! Combine a drill, soap, dispenser brush, bolt, washer, and machine screw, and dip in soap. (Be sure to watch the video to see how they fit together.) Turn on the drill, and power was away the grime!
Clean the space between the toilet bowl and the tank tank
Use a screwdriver, paper towel, and cleaning spray to clean the (super gross!) space between the toilet bowl and the tank. It’s literally a three-second “swipe” and all that dirt comes up quickly.
Clean and polish the faucet and basin with toothpaste
Clean and polish with toothpaste for a sparkling sink! Toothpaste is actually a pretty versatile cleaning agent!
Clean your shower head
Clean your shower head by soaking it in a bag of vinegar. We were skeptical, too, but afterward, it works as well as when you first bought it!
Clean toilet bowl— with Coke!
Use a bottle of Coke to clean your toilet bowls. This is not a “new” hack, but a good reminder that you can use items from your fridge to do more than feed yourself. And honestly, I think it’s pretty scary that a soft drink can be used to clean anything!
Clean moldy shower curtains
Combine 500 milliliters (16.9 fluid ounces) of bleach with two tablespoons of dish soap and spray on the shower curtain. Let sit 10 minutes before rinsing, and your curtains will be good as new.
Create a fresh smell for your bathroom
Place a jar of used coffee beans and add a tea light candle. You will be blown away at how great the bathroom smells for guests.
