That you can complete in 15 minutes or less.
Bathrooms are notoriously one of the more challenging and time-consuming rooms in the house to clean. They're also one of the most important rooms to have clean and probably the most satisfying to complete.
It will make you feel better if you start and end your day in a fresh-smelling and clean bathroom and will help transform it into more of a spa-like retreat for you to relax.
From an easy method for cleaning your bath to ensuring you dust, these bathroom cleaning tricks will make the process quicker and easier.
A small annoyance when cleaning your bathroom is the dust when you wipe down surfaces. Dusting a bathroom is likely something you've not considered before, but starting off your cleaning process like this makes it significantly easier to get rid of the dust build up.
Scrubbing a bath is a bit of an awkward task, but Chantel Mila's hack is here to save you some time and effort. Her DIY cleaning mix combines warm white vinegar and dishwashing liquid. She pours the liquid around the surface of the bath, leaves it for 15 minutes and then wipes it down. Say hello to a sparkling tub!
Your shower head might be a spot in your bathroom you either forget to clean or simply don't ever clean. It's not something you need to do every time you tackle your bathroom, but can be done when doing deeper cleans. Simply remove the head and use teeth flossing brushes to scrub the shower holes. Then submerge the shower head in a container full of white vinegar for two hours (it's not 15 minutes but it you can sit back and do whatever else you need to do during this time).
This hack is all about consistent, low-maintenance cleaning which will mean you don't have to do those deep shower cleans. Grab a fillable dish brush and add dish soap and vinegar to the vessel. Simply keep the brush in your shower and give your shower a brush down once a week while you're already bathing.
This one couldn't get any more simple. If you want your bathroom sink to sparkle all you need to do is fill up your sink and drop in a couple of denture tablets. Let it sit, and voila! a sparkling sink sans scrubbing.
There is an overwhelming amount of cleaning products on the market and sometimes you just need to keep it simple. This hack utilises dishwashing liquid and water as a surface cleaner for the shower screen – it doesn't need to be hard!
There are three great ideas in this one TikTok. The first is another denture tablet hack – you can pop a couple into your toilet to remove any stains. The second reminds you to actually remove your toilet seat to give it a proper cleaner where the brackets are (an area very few of us think to clean!). The last trick is to pop your scrubbing brush under the toilet seat once you're done to let it dry so that it doesn't just sit in its container wet and building up bacteria.
