Everyone loves the feeling of a clean bathroom! But let's face it, our bathrooms get a lot of use and are naturally faced with a lot of dirt. When life gets busy, it can be hard to keep up with all of that dirt. Add cooking oil, chopsticks and rice to your cabinet staples and follow our tips below for a sparkling bathroom everyone can feel great about.
Makeup Remover: Apply a bit of shaving cream to the stain on your fabric and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Blot up as much as you can with a clean cloth. Rinse the spot with cool water, and then throw it in the washing machine.
Prevent Fogging: Apply a thin layer of shaving cream to your mirror and then wipe it off. This method can also be used on shower doors, windshield, or eyeglasses to prevent them from fogging too.
Polish Fixtures: Apply a bit of shaving cream on a clean rag or sponge to polish your water-stained stainless steel and chrome appliances and fixtures for a more natural clean.
Jewelry Cleaner: Rub your jewelry in a drop of shaving cream for a minute. Rinse or wipe clean until it looks shiny and new.
Remove Soap Scum: Keep an eraser in your shower to quickly clean the tub and shower walls while you are in there.
Clean Hair Tools: Blot your curling wands and flatirons with an eraser to remove sticky residue buildup from styling products.
Clean Crevices: Wrap a cloth around a chopstick to deep clean vents, grouts, faucets, and other small fixtures and crevices that can be tricky to reach without the right device.
Squeaky Doors: Spray a little nonstick oil directly onto the hinges of a squeaky door or cabinet for a more natural and less potent way to keep them lubricated—and quiet.
Polish Fixtures: Spray a small amount directly on your fixtures to let the oil break down any grime or water stains. Wipe with a clean rag for a shiny finish.
Remove Soap Scum: Spray your bathtub or shower tile to instantly remove unwanted soap scum buildup. Just remember to rinse your tub clean with hot water after so you don’t slip and fall the next time you take a shower.
Glass Cleaner: Even a small spritz of nonstick cooking spray has more than enough oil to tackle the lime deposits on your glass shower door—just remember to rinse it clean with hot water when you’re done, so no slick oily residue remains.
Toilet Cleaner: Baking soda absorbs odors and is slightly abrasive, so sprinkling it into your toilet bowl before flushing can save you from having to use your toilet brush as frequently.
Odor Reducer: Add 1-2 cups of rice to a mason jar, cover with a breathable fabric and secure with a rubber band. The rice will naturally absorb odors. For added fun, mix 10-20 drops of your favorite-smelling essential oils to the rice.
