However, you might be surprised to learn that there are a few simple cheats or “hacks” you can use to keep your bathroom sparkling clean while cutting your cleaning time in half!
Now, these hacks won’t require you to go out and buy a bunch of fancy “cleaners,” instead, you probably have most of what you need already, just hanging out under the sink.
Cleaning Your Toilet Tank
How often do you lift the lid on your toilet tank to peek inside? You’ll likely find some pretty nasty stains inside the tank if you did. By adding just a bit of white vinegar to your toilet tank, you can keep your tank fresh and clean. Just pour some in and give it a few flushes.

You’ll press the mixture into molds or just your average ice tray, and presto, you’ve got a quick and easy toilet cleaner. You can find the full recipe here.
Scrub-a-Dub Your Tub with No Scrubbing
Nobody loves getting on their hands and knees to scrub the tub. Dealing with rust stains, soap scum, and hard water deposits can be a nightmare. But just by using a combination of dawn dish soap and vinegar, you can clean your entire tub with zero scrubbing!
Just be sure to let the solution sit for a while, then wipe down your tub. It’s that easy!
Clean Hard-to-Clean Shower Doors with Pine-Sol
We all know how hard it is to clean glass shower doors to get that icky white hard water film. But you can knock out these stains by mixing about 1/8 cup of Pine-Sol with about 1/2 gallon of warm water. Just take a rag soaked in the mixture and wipe down those doors. You can also put the mixture in a spray bottle to make it even easier. Just be sure to finish by rinsing off your glass with warm water.
Instantly Whiten Grout
You don’t need to deal with bleach or harsh chemicals just to clean your grout. The only things you’ll need are vinegar, baking soda, and either a toothbrush (one no one’s using) or a small scrub brush.
Rid Smelly “Boy” Odors From Your Bathroom
Boys of all ages sometimes don’t always “hit their mark,” if you know what I mean. This can leave messy and smelly stains on the surrounding floor and toilet. But using a combination of fresh lemon juice, baking soda, and vinegar, you can disinfect, clean, and freshen that problematic area in a snap!
Achieve a Streak-Free Shine in Seconds
Cleaning bathroom mirrors is one of the most challenging jobs. However, using a homemade cleaning solution of ammonia, water, Dawn dish soap, and rubbing alcohol, you can get your windows clean in no time. Just pour the mixture into a spray bottle and wipe away the film!
Say Buh-Bye to Hard Water Stains
Another headache to clean is those hard water stains that crust up your facets. These stains feel like they’re next to impossible to clean, but you can do it with just a few paper towels and some vinegar. First, soak the paper towels in vinegar and wrap them around your bathroom. Let this sit for a few hours, and you’ll be shocked by how sparkly your facets become!
