Bathroom Cleaning Hacks for your Apartment
It’s the smallest room in the apartment, the most used and the grungiest to clean … the bathroom! There are plenty of cleaning products you can pick up anywhere, but here are some quick hacks you can use between deep cleanings. A lot of the stuff you probably already have on hand or can source the next time you do a store run. So, get ready to raid the pantry, roll up your sleeves and get to work!
Clean your shower with vinegar
Vinegar has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. Heat some in the microwave and spray it in the shower. Rinse with water. While you’re cleaning the shower area, soak the showerhead in vinegar. Vinegar will get rid of mineral scale and calcium deposits caused by hard water.
Remove soap scum with dryer sheets
Everybody has dryer sheets. Put a few drops of water on a dryer sheet and buff away the soap scrum. Rinse with water. You can also use dryer sheets to clean up the faucets in the sink and shower.
Use a denture tablet to clean your toilet
Now, this is something you probably don’t have lying around the apartment, but it’s worth buying a box. Between scrubbings, you can keep your toilet bowl clean by dropping in a denture tablet. After the bubbles and foam have subsided, flush. It’s great for removing stains and rust.
Air-dry the toilet brush
The next time you scrub the toilet the old-fashioned way, air dry the brush. The water that builds up in the bottom of the toilet brush holder is just nasty. Sandwich the toilet brush between the toilet lid and bowl and let it air dry.
Try black tea to clean mirrors
Brew some strong black tea and use a soft lint-free cloth to wipe the mirrors. The tannic acid does the work. Dry the mirror with a clean cloth. Black tea is a natural alternative to ammonia-based spray products.
Hopefully, these hacks will help you when you need to quickly clean the bathroom. Who knows? Maybe your parents are dropping by, or you’ve been nominated on the fly to host tonight’s watch party. By using products you have on hand, you will save time and money and keep the bathroom presentable between cleanings.
