10 Quick and Easy Bathroom Tips

1. Keep a container of Lysol Wipes in the bathroom for a quick wipe down when needed.

2. Vinegar is great for cleaning glass! Put some in a spray bottle for cleaning mirrors, windows and shower doors.

3. Keep a bottle of Tilex Fresh Shower Daily Shower Cleaner handy and spray it all over your shower after each use. This will help to prevent mold and make it easier to clean the tub in the future.

4. For hard water and lime scale build up in the toilet there are several things that you can do to get rid of the stain:
· Pour a can of regular Coca-Cola (not the diet kind!) in the toilet and let it sit overnight. The acidity of the Coca-Cola will eat away the stain.
· Pour a cup of Clorox Bleach or Vinegar in the toilet and let it sit overnight. (One or the other, not both!) In the morning, the stain should be greatly reduced, now all you may have to do is scrub.
· Dip a pumice stone in baking soda and scrub the stain away. Be careful not to scrub too hard and scratch the porcelain!

5. Dump about a cup of baking soda in there and scrub with a brush.

6. Mix hydrogen peroxide and water in a spray bottle in equal parts and spray the ceiling every so often to prevent mold.

7. Set a small dish of baking soda somewhere where it won’t get wet to absorb and help prevent any lingering odors.

8. Use fabric softener sheets in the laundry hamper or basket to prevent any odors from the unclean laundry.

9. Run an inch or two of hot water in the bathtub and add a scoop of laundry detergent to make the bathtub sparkle. Let the solution sit overnight and rinse away in the morning.

10. Wash your plastic shower curtain in the washing machine with a couple of towels and a cup of vinegar instead of detergent. Hang it back up to dry.
