It’s no secret that the bathroom is one of the messiest areas of the home. Not only is it hard to clean, but it seems like the bathroom is messy again in a matter of hours! Here are 18 amazing hacks on how to clean a bathroom that will help you to keep things fresh and clean.
1. Simple Shower Cleaning
Use a dish wand to tackle the grime found in your shower. Joyful Cleaning recommends filling the dish wand with vinegar and liquid soap. You can even scrub while in the shower. Hooray for multi-tasking.
2. Clean Shower Head Buildup
If your shower head doesn’t seem to do more than dribble hot water, it may be time to clean the shower head! Fill a bag with vinegar and tie it around the shower head. The vinegar will break down any hard water deposits.
3. Whiten Your Shower
Hometalk is behind this amazing shower trick. Mix equal parts bleach and baking soda together to form a paste. Smear it on any yellowing cracks in your shower. Let sit overnight, and then rinse in the morning.
4. Remove Hard Water Stains
Remove hard water stains off your fixtures by using a halved lemon. The acid in the lemon breaks down the hard water, and is easy on your hands! No harsh chemicals needed!
5. Glass Door
6. Dryer Sheets for Bathtub Buildup
We are becoming more and more convinced that dryer sheets are the “fix all.” Not only do they make fixtures and mirrors shine, but they are great for cleaning the tub!
7. Keep Brushes Fresh
Pour a bit of all purpose cleaner in the bottom of your toilet brush holder. The cleaner disinfects the brush, and leaves your bathroom smelling fresh. What could be better?
8. Bathtub Scrub
Scrub your bathtub with a grapefruit dipped in salt. The coarse salt mixed with the acid in the grapefruit will cut through all grime!
9. Clean Your Liner
Clean shower curtain liner stains by throwing it in your washing machine. A run through an ordinary washing cycle will have your curtain looking like new! Say goodbye to mildew!
10. Prevent Rust Stains
Anyone who has ever purchased a can of shaving cream has felt the frustration when lifting it to discover a ring of rust! The Krazy Coupon lady suggested painting the bottom of the can to prevent rust from forming. Genius!
Bathroom drains are straight out of a horror movie. If you are becoming frustrated with a slow flow, it could be time to clean it out! An old mascara wand is great for digging around in there, and pulling things out!

14. Hang a Spice Rack
Control the beauty product takeover with this awesome idea. Install a spice rack inside your bathroom. This is the perfect size to store hairspray, perfume, and any other beauty products that are a necessity!
15. Hydrogen Peroxide
This isn’t just for first aid anymore! Turn your bottle of peroxide into a spray bottle. Use it to clean tile grout. Let sit, and then scrub the grout with a toothbrush.
16. Use Your Dishwasher
Use your dishwasher to clean your soap dispenser or tooth brush holder. You would be surprised at the amount of grime that builds up, and you wont have to scrub any dried toothpaste of anything!
17. Magnetic Strip
Hang a magnetic strip behind cabinet doors, or on the inside of a drawer. The magnet strips are a great place to store bobby pins, so you will always have them around when you need them. Now, if we could only find the ones missing in the carpet…

Make your curling iron look new by using a steel wool pad to remove the burnt marks. No more odd smell!
