How many of us like cleaning the bathroom? But it’s one of those jobs that has to be done!
Make easy work of the glass, mirrors, bath, shower and the toilet.
Check out these 7 amazing tips to make your tasks easier:
- Streak-free mirrors
Commercial glass cleaners can be expensive and will still leave those irritating streaks on your mirrors. It’s easy to make your own toxic-free cleaner at home. Simply make up a solution of baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, spray it on the mirror, and wipe it with a sponge to get any stubborn spots off.
And guess what? To stop your bathroom mirror from steaming up after your next hot shower, use shaving cream. It will also make your glass surfaces sparkle.
2. A sparkling bathtub
An easy way to freshen, get rid of germs and make your bath or shower look brand new again is by using a mixture of 1/2 cup of vinegar, 1 cup of rubbing alcohol, and 1/4 cup of water. Add all the ingredients to about 4 litres of warm water. Simply spread the mixture evenly over the dirty areas, leave it for around 15 minutes, and then rinse well. You’ll be amazed how effortless this is!
3. A clean toilet
Did you know that standard mouth rinse can make a perfect toilet cleaner! Dissolve your mouth wash in water, apply the solution onto the dirty surface, leave for 30 minutes, and then scrub well with the toilet brush and rinse.
4. Spotless tiles
Wear protective gloves to safeguard your hands and use a cotton ball soaked in bleach to help keep your tiles extra shiny and free from water spots. You can also use mouth rinse or toothpaste for this job.
5. Getting rid of rust
Magic! Getting rid of rust is easier than you think. Pour salt over the rusted area, squeeze some lemon juice on top and rub it in. Leave the solution overnight, and wash it off in the morning. The lemon juice reacts with the rust to dissolve it from the surface, and the salt absorbs the rust stains.
6. A dust-free ceiling
Cleaning you ceiling is always a backbreaking job. Try this for a clean and dust-free ceiling, use a mixture of 1 part vinegar to 1 part warm water. Dip your mop into the solution, and begin cleaning your ceiling. Use a headscarf / hat and safety glasses for protection.
7. Clean shower curtains
Mix together 16 fl oz. (500 ml) of all-purpose bleach and 2 tablespoons of dishwashing liquid in a spray bottle. Close the curtain, to make the surface as crease free as possible and spray the solution over the entire surface of your shower curtain, leave for several minutes, then rinse. Your curtain will be fresh and look like new again.
