Looking for a way to keep your bathrooms spick and span, with minimal effort and time? We’ve got you covered with some amazing cleaning hacks to lighten your housework load! From getting rid of stains and mold to using old toothbrushes as cleaning tools, we’ve compiled a list of the best tips and tricks to have your bathroom sparkling clean in a jiffy!

  • Brighten up your shower cubicle with a homemade cleaner which is a combination of equal parts baking soda and bleach. Make a paste and smear on the shower cubicle surfaces and leave overnight. Wash it a way in the morning with water and a brush.
  • Keep your bathroom tiles stain free by using some Vinegar! Heat up the Vinegar in a microwave and spray on the tiles while it's hot.
  • No cleaning brush? No problem! Save old tooth brushes to use as cleaning brushes. These recycled brushes are perfect forgetting in and cleaning tight corners and crevices.
  • Use shaving foam to clean your mirrors. Spray some foam on the mirrors and then use a sponge to polish it off. You will have a gleaming mirror in no time!
  • Make a cleaning checklist. This will make it easier to get everything done without missing a spot. Include all areas of the bathroom including, mirrors, bathtub, shower head, toilets, floors etc.
  • Deodorize your shower drain by using Baking Soda and Vinegar. Pour a cup of baking soda and two cups of Vinegar down the drain, flush with warm water after half an hour.
  • Keep your shower doors looking clean and shiny with black tea. Simply dip a cloth into some black tea and gently wipe your shower doors to get rid of grime and limescale buildup.
  • Use dental floss to remove build-up from the nooks and crannies of faucets and taps.
  • Clean all surfaces of the bathroom with a skin-friendly disinfectant. We recommend the Safeguard Surface Disinfectant which is safe and effectively kills 99.99% of all germs.
  • Use rice to keep your bathroom smelling lovely all day long! Add a cup of rice to a glass jar, mix in your favorite essential oil, shake the mixture and place it in your bathroom.
  • Wash your shower curtains regularly to stop mildew and mold from taking hold.
  • Vinegar to the rescue again! Fill a plastic bag with vinegar, remove your shower head and drop it into the bag and make sure that it is completely submerged. Let sit it for an hour and wash with warm water to have your showerheads looking brand new!
  • Keep your taps and faucets shiny with Lemon! Rub half a lemon slice on the taps then rinse and buff for extra shin!
  • Run out of bathroom cleaner? Use Aspirin! The salicylic acid in aspirin works as an amazing cleaning agent. Add two aspirin tablets into water and use the mixture as you would use any other cleaner.
  • Clean the hard to reach places in your toilet tank with a screwdriver. Simply remove the seat and lid on your toilet, then use a screwdriver with the end covered with a cloth and clean those nooks and crannies.
  • Keep the bathroom bins smelling nice with the use of Bicarbonate Soda. Sprinkle a bit of the soda into the bins after emptying.
