One of the most dreaded chores around the house is cleaning the bathroom. We would assume that we are not the only one with that opinion but it’s a chore that has to be done. We’ve spent some time researching and found some pretty easy and interesting tricks that helped us and we hope that they will also ease your job and make you hate it a little bit less.
- Washing machine
To thoroughly clean the washing machine, fill it with hot water and add ¼ of a cup of apple cider vinegar. First, start a short cycle and after it finishes, leave it to sit for one hour. After that hour has passed, start the longest cycle. You will get some amazing results!
You might doubt this at first but grapefruit and some sea salt is all you need in order to make your bathtub look like new again. Cut the grapefruit in half, dip it in some sea salt and rub the bathtub with it. Once you are finished, rinse the tub with water. The same method can be applied to clean your cutting board in the kitchen.
In order to clean the toilet and eliminate the bad odor, make a mix of some apple cider vinegar, baking soda and lemon juice. Spray it around the toilet, let it sit for a few minutes and then flush.
Apple cider vinegar comes to the rescue when you need to disinfect your shower head or clean the whole shower. To clean the shower head, pour some ACV in an empty plastic bag, put the shower head inside the bag and secure it with a rubber band. The shower head should stay submerged in the ACV for at least one hour after which you should rinse it with water.
The sink can be easily cleaned with a paste made from lemon juice and potassium bitartrate. Apply the mixture directly on the sink and rub with an old toothbrush. After you are done with the rubbing, rinse with water. This will effectively remove rust and other mineral deposits.
- Floor and tiles
To clean the tiles around your bathroom, you can use your dish washing detergent. Take ½ a cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of hydrogen peroxide and 1 teaspoon of dish detergent and mix it all together. Rub the floor and the tiles with this solution to clean it quickly and easily!
