9 Tips for Bathroom Cleaning Problems

Sometimes, it’s the smallest room in your home that seems like it’s the most difficult to clean. For those annoying bathroom cleaning problems, here are some frugal solutions from Reader’s Digest:

  1. “My shower curtain is crawling with mildew”: don’t throw it out! Trying washing it in 1 gallon of warm water and 1/2 cup of household bleach in a plastic bucket. Use gloves when soaking and wiping curtain clean. You can use the showerhead to rinse it afterward.
  2. “I have scum buildup on shower doors”: using a lemon oil furniture polish can act as a barrier against scummy build up. Wipe the door with furniture oil, let sit for two minutes, and then polish off the excess with a dry cloth. Use a shower squeegee after every shower afterward to discourage build up
  3. “My brass fixtures look dull”: make a paste with equal parts baking soda and lemon juice. Dip an old toothbrush into this solution and scrub fixtures. After letting solution dry for a few minutes, buff the fixtures with a dry cloth.
