1. MIRRORS THAT ARE CLEAN AND DE-MISTED USE SHAVING FOAM
You heard us right, Your mirrors won’t fog up when the bathroom becomes humid if you clean them with shaving foam. For around two to three weeks, you can have a mirror that is sparkling and steam-free by just spraying it on and wiping it off with kitchen paper (or until it gets splashed again).

2. USING TEA OR OIL, GLEAM THE SHOWER SCREEN
It’s a good start if you know how to clean glass shower doors, but drink some tea in addition to your cleaning efforts!
You can use Windolene(opens in a new tab) to create a fantastic shine on your shower screen, but if you’d prefer a more natural option, just dunk a lint-free cloth in some black tea, massage it on the door, and then use a clean towel to dry and buff. Alternatively, you may apply some cooking oil, let it sit for ten minutes, then rinse it with soapy water before buffing it to a sheen. Both are excellent in removing dirt and limescale buildup.
3. USE VINEGAR TO GIVE WINDOWS A SPEEDY SHINE
You can make the ideal bathroom window, shower screen, and mirror cleaning by combining one part white vinegar, half a part rubbing alcohol(opens in new tab) (look for a 70% concentration), and two parts water in a spray bottle.
For optimal results when using vinegar to clean windows, use it only on cool days when no direct sunlight is shining on the glass, then rub it with a microfiber cloth to create a streak-free finish.
No one wants to relax with the smell of vinegar in the air, so we’d advise doing this well before taking that luxurious spa bath. Open windows to hasten the smell’s evaporation as well.
4. NATURALLY ELIMINATE MILDEW FROM A SHOWER CURTAIN.
Every time you take a shower, let your shower curtain completely dry out to help prevent mildew and mold growth.
However, if your bathroom already has condensation problems, it may be difficult to achieve this. The next best thing is to wash yours with your towels once a week and let it to fully dry afterward.
Let us save you the expense of a new one if the mildew has truly taken root. Simply mix half a cup of bicarbonate of soda with your washing powder and set your washer to 30 degrees Celsius. Add half a cup of white vinegar right before the rinse cycle. Give it time to completely dry.
5. Use Both Vinegar and Bicarbonate of Soda to Clean the Toilet.
Toilets can rapidly become filthy, but if you’re constantly looking for alternatives to even the best toilet cleaners, try this if you’re like us: White vinegar and bicarbonate of soda mixed in equal parts should be poured into and around the toilet.
A toilet brush should be used to push the mixture into the area under the rim. Give it a good scrub after leaving for at least 15 minutes, then flush. Repeat often to keep the bathroom shining.
If you have young boys in the house (and perhaps older ones, too), keeping a pack of wipes on hand will help keep the bathroom fresh after each messy usage.
Use a wipe wrapped around a screwdriver to reach the space between the toilet’s body and tank for a thorough cleaning. Just be careful not to flush the wipes, especially if they are labeled “flushable,” as they have been known to lead to clogged drains.
6. MAKE THE SINK LIKE NEW
Porcelain sinks pretty much look after themselves, provided they’re given a bit of a scrub every few days, but if yours has become stained over time, you can’t beat Barkeeper’s Friend(opens in new tab).
7. USE INFECTION TABLETS TO UNBLOCK A SLOW DRAIN
Slow draining in the sink? It’s certainly been clogged with hair over time, and often using a drain snake to clear it out is the best option (opens in new tab).
However, you could do worse than pouring four effervescent indigestion tablets down the drain, followed by a cup of distilled vinegar, if you suspect that the obstruction is soap, toothpaste, or razor debris. Ten minutes later, add a pot of boiling water as a follow-up. It ought to work.
8. ENSURE THAT SHOWER HEADS GLARE
Shower heads can easily become blocked and dulled by limescale, especially in locations with hard water. A sign that this is happening is when water stops coming out of the shower entirely after a prolonged period of inactivity (actual story, as witnessed by a member of the Realhomes.com crew).
What is a quick, hassle-free cleaning solution for a shower head? Take it out, place it in a dish or plastic bag (sandwich bags work well), and then cover it with distilled vinegar. Really encrusted shower head? Bicarbonate of soda should also be added.
If the shower head is fixed or you are unable to remove it, you can secure the top of the bag with an elastic bag, which will also help to mask the smell. After an hour, remove it, then turn on the shower. Once the flow is back, the shower head should shine.
9. SHINE YOUR TAPS TO A LEMON SPARKLE
Rub the sliced half of a lemon on your taps to remove water spots that have tarnished them, then rinse and polish.
Another option is to moisten an old toothbrush with water, sprinkle baking soda directly over the bristles, and scrape the trouble spots. After 10 minutes, rinse and buff the toothbrush. Just like that. Do not restrict these tips to taps or the kitchen because they will work on all of your chrome.
10. USE GRAPEFRUIT TO CLEAN THE BATHTUB
Everyone has heard of exfoliators for our bodies or faces when taking a bath, but what about one for our fittings?
Or, maybe more crucially, what about using one to clean a bathtub? To use, simply cut a grapefruit in half (other citrus fruits will work, but the size of grapefruit makes it an excellent choice), sprinkle salt on the cut half of the fruit and the bath’s bottom, fill the bath with water, and scrub with the grapefruit. Rinse to create a shine and a fragrant bathroom.
