Every room gets messy from time to time, but a messy bathroom can really get your day off to a bad start. Bathrooms experience a high volume of use, especially in multi-person households. Here are four easy tips for keeping your bathroom looking clean, for longer.
Clean Your Mirror
Because mirrors are reflective surfaces, streaks and scum on the surface are immediately obvious to anyone who walks in. If your mirror has been prone to streaking in the past, keep in mind: the tools you use make a difference.
Approach mirror cleaning as a two-part problem: first you need to get rid of the globs, then you need to make it shine. Get rid of the toothpaste blobs with rubbing alcohol, then go over it all with a microfiber cloth and vinegar/water spray solution. Microfiber cloth (like the kind you might use for a pair of sunglasses) remove streaks quickly and easily and leave a lint-free polish. Move away from disposable cloths that can sometimes leave a residue.
Use Your Cabinets Wisely
The way to prevent accumulation on your countertop: use your cabinets wisely. Having compartmentalized sections for each part of your routine—teeth, hair, et cetera—will help you manage this space an cut down on the clutter.
A Stash of Dryer Sheets
It can be a huge hassle to drag the vacuum cleaner out everyday—and yet we all know how quickly loose hairs and dust can accumulate here. Dryer sheets can be used to pick up all the dust bunnies sitting in the corners and keep your room looking tidy in between sweeps or vacuums.
Apple Cider Vinegar Spray
There’s a reason people love apple cider vinegar—it has so many DIY home applications! An equal mixture of water and apple cider vinegar in a spray bottle can be used daily after showers. Just spray down the tub and/or glass shower door area to prevent future build up of mildew and grime. Finish it with a quick swipe of a cleaning rag.
Maintaining a clean bathroom is important, especially if you’re expecting guests. A dirty bathroom space can make a lasting impression on people—and we guarantee it won’t be a good one. Do you plan on making apple cider vinegar spray for glass shower doors, dryer sheets, organized cabinets, and mirror cleaning solutions part of your daily routine?
