Bathroom Tips to Save Time and Money

Try storing metal shaving cream cans upside down on their plastic lids to prevent hard to clean rust rings.

Try replacing soap bars with liquid soap which doesn't contain the fat that causes soap scum.

Prevent mold by going over shower walls with a squeegee after use.

Keep shower door or curtain open for a few minutes after use to get rid of moisture so mold won't grow.

Use a small amount of rubbing alcohol on a paper towel to wipe away smudges and hairspray haze on mirrors and chrome faucets.

You can clean rubber or vinyl bathtub mats and shower curtains by tossing in the washer on cold, delicate with a couple of bath towels. 1/2 cup of detergent and 1/2 cup baking soda is enough.

Use a soft cloth saturated with white vinegar to make shower doors sparkle. Shine with a dry cloth.

Rub your metal shower door frames with lemon oil to remove water spots. Wipe any residue off with a soft cloth.

Try a wet sponge mop paired with an all-purpose cleaner to avoid bending and stretching.
