The bathroom and kitchen tend to be areas of the home that require the most time and effort for deep cleaning. As you are working on the bathroom, you want to scrub the toilets, wipe down sinks, freshen showers, and clean floors. Are you using the right tools and strategies for the best results in this room?

It can be a challenge disinfect while getting rid of soap scum, mildew, and stains. Here are four cleaning hacks that will make it easier to clean the bathroom:

  1. Shower Curtain and Liner: A shower curtain is an area that builds up all kinds of ickiness with time, and yet it is often overlooked as an area that needs to be cleaned. Instead of throwing away a scummy shower curtain, put it in the washing machine with a few towels. Add a cup of baking soda and the usual amount of laundry detergent.
  2. Shower Walls and Tub: Soap scum is a cinch when you are using the right cleaning products. Instead of reaching for a multi-purpose cleaner, try using a combination of one-part vinegar and one-part dish soap. This combo will make your shower shine without the danger of household chemicals.
  3. Use a Toothbrush: No, we aren’t talking about freshening your breath. An old toothbrush is a great way to reach the small crevices and corners on the plumbing faucets. Wet the toothbrush, apply a cleaning solution on the faucet generously, then rub the bristles of your brush in the areas where you see grime.
  4. Vinegar and Baking Soda: When it comes to hard mineral deposits and soap scum, vinegar and baking soda are your best friends. Remove the shower head and soak it in a bowl of vinegar to get rid of of hard water. Try using baking soda with water as you are cleaning the faucets and toilet bowl. These natural ingredients are safer and more effective than chemical products.
