No one said you can’t be productive during quarantine! Staying at home in these unprecedented times is important to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Capitalize on the time inside by getting your bathroom to the cleanest it’s ever been! No need to rush out and buy expensive bathroom cleaning remedies; many of the best ways to clean your bathroom can be done using household ingredients. From fresh-smelling grout cleaner to an incredible tub and tile cleaner, we’ve got our top 3 DIY cleaning remedies to keep your bathroom smelling fresh!
Say Goodbye to Smelly Grout Cleaner with a Vinegar Solution
A bottle of vinegar is your best friend when it comes to bathroom cleaning remedies. Vinegar easily cuts through grime and buildup on most home surfaces. It’s cheap, easy to buy in bulk, and readily available. One of the best ways to use vinegar is by replacing your smelly grout cleaner with it. To clean out the shower or tile grout, heat one cup of vinegar on the stove until hot (but not boiling). Mix the hot vinegar with one cup of dish soap in a spray bottle. Shake it until well blended and spray on all your gross grout! After a few minutes with the solution, scrub down the applied area with a brush or sponge. You’ll be amazed how clean your grout lines will look!
Clean Up Tub and Tiles Using Household Ingredients
Vinegar continues to be your friend with our favorite DIY tub and tile cleaner. Instead of using abrasive, chemical-laden cleaners to wash out tubs and tile, try making this one instead. Combine three parts baking soda, one part warm water, and one part liquid or powdered soap in a spray bottle. Add a splash (about two to three tablespoons) of white vinegar for some acidity to counteract the basic properties of the baking soda. Once this mixture is thoroughly mixed, spray it on any grimy areas. You’ll notice even caked-on dirt sheds easily after being sprayed down with this DIY bathroom cleaning remedy!
Use Lemon to Naturally Shine Hardware
No matter if you’ve got stainless steel or basic bronze, your bathroom hardware can use a shining. Having polished hardware makes a huge difference in the overall aesthetic of your bathroom. Cabinet handles, faucets, and showerheads all benefit from a scrub down with lemon. Gently roll the fruit across a counter, pushing it down with your palm. This loosens the juice from the membrane inside the lemon, making it easy to spread onto your bathroom hardware. Cut the lemon in half and rub on any areas you need shined. Wipe clean with a damp, clean cloth. It may seem like this bathroom cleaning remedy is too good to be true, but the natural acidity in the lemon tears through hard water stains, grime, or even mildew.
