Bathroom Hacks To Make It Shine
In my opinion, the bathroom is one of the rooms in the house that needs to be the cleanest. Making sure that the bathroom sparkles means that you can rest assured that the bathroom is clean, hygienic, and fit for purpose. But how can you make your bathroom sparkle? It can be quite a hard room to maintain because of all of the moisture and water that is in there. Talk about limescale and possibly mildew! So what are some of the best tips and tricks that you could try? Here are some more unusual bathroom hacks to help you to keep your bathroom sparkling clean.
Clean Mirrors With Black Tea
If you want a squeaky and sparkly clean mirror, then you don’t need to necessarily use a specific window cleaner. Black tea works well as a cleaner on those surfaces and is completely natural too. Black tea contains certain acids that help to fight and clean through dirt and grime. Use it, cooled, in a spray bottle and spray all over your mirrors and even windows. Then just wipe away with a dry cloth.
If you’re tired of having to scrub off limescale off your shower head, then you can use vinegar to help clean it off. One easy way is to tie a plastic baggie over the shower head. Make sure that it is filled with white vinegar and then make sure that it is secured to the shower head (you could use something like elastic bands to tie it on). For best results, it is best to leave overnight. But vinegar does work wonders with limescale. If you’re not keen on the smell, then add a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil into the bag.
Use a Cooking Spray
If you find that you are always cleaning off soap scum off your bathroom or sink, then you need to ditch the bleach. Bleach is great for killing germs but not getting rid of soap scum or limescale. So to get rid of those streaks and marks left on cheap bathroom suites and even more expensive ones, then you need to think about alternatives. Cooking spray is reported to do quite well on cutting through the grime that can build up. Spray it on your bathroom suite and things like shower screens, then leave for a couple of minutes. Rinse off with some soapy water, and you’ll notice a difference for sure.
Lemon oil has long been reported to be good for it’s antibacterial properties. But if you don’t have any of that, you can use an actual lemon. Chop it in half and then rub one-half of the lemon on things like faucets or shower dials. The acid in the lemon works wonders to clean and dissolve the buildup of dirt and grime that is on the metal of faucets. So it is a simple trick that can make a big difference. It will leave the bathroom smelling good too; always a bonus!
