5 Tips to ALWAYS Have a Clean Bathroom

cleaning tips I really need for my bathroom.

A neighbor swings by and your place is a MESS. Company is visiting and sure enough you’ve already got an entire house to clean. Book club host cancels at the last minute and guess who is the NEW host?

We all want our place to look it’s best in for visitors. Even if it’s your best friends. Although my best friends know that while most of my house looks put tougher, whichever bedroom door is closed hides all the CRAP I threw inside right before they showed up 🙂 .

Next to the family room and kitchen, the bathroom is the next most visited room by guests (statistically accurate by …. my guess???).

The bathroom is definitely not the funnest room to clean (not that I know which room in my house where cleaning is actually FUN). It also can be easily forgotten. So here’s my best 5 tips to always keeping your bathroom in tip top shape. Now when you have the impromptu visitors, you won’t have to worry about your bathroom being clean!  It already will be!

1 The 30 Second Bathtub Cleaning

I seem to always wait until we’re having company to clean my bathtub. By that time it’s no easy task and I’m cursing myself for not keeping in clean on a regular basis. Confession. No matter what system I used I never seemed to clean it BEFORE it gets out of control … until now. While I’m taking a shower, I use a dishwand half filled with detergent & vinegar to scrub the bathtub walls. Then shower water rinses it clean. How easy is that?

2 Toilet paper

Nothing says TOTALLY DISORGANIZED like a bathroom running low on toilet paper. What’s worse is if it happens to your guest 🙁 . The EASIEST way to make sure you always have a supply on hand is through an Amazon subscription. You can set the deliver schedule based on your families needs and let them do the rest of the work! Not sure how much toilet paper you go through on average? Really, who does? There’s an estimator right on Amazon’s sight to help you figure it out! For all of you that are in a city, lugging toilet paper home from the grocery store is the worst, right? Get it delivered instead! Plus there’s a 15% discount going on now! Score!

Now that you’ve got your supply of toilet paper always on hand, reduce the number of times you need to change that roll with Quilted Northern. It’s got almost 4x MORE sheets that a regular roll and takes up 20% LESS space, so your under the sink storage just got easier!

And apparently little Reagan loves the toilet paper too. I swear it was out of my site for ONE second and this is what happened:

3 Hand Towels

While I LOVE the look of white hand towels, I HATE how easily it is to spot dirt on them. No matter how fancy or expensive a white towel is, they all get dirty equally bad. That’s why I now buy several cheaper white towels instead of just one or two fancy ones. Once I see one getting dirty, I simply pull out a new one from my stash underneath the sink. A sparkling white towel always makes the bathroom look clean!

4 Rust, Ugh, Rust

Anything near a sink is prone to rust simply due to the amount of water that’s around. I tend to find that my metal soap dispenser start to have that gross rust presence within weeks of purchasing. Instead of throwing away a perfectly good soap dispenser, here’s what I do:

Put one of these Magic Sliders at the bottom of the soap dispenser. If you have a round one, this is an awesome option. There’s enough sizes that you should be able to find one that works for you.  These keep the soap dispenser just above any water that may get on the counter.

5 Two for One

Here’s a solution for not only keep your toilet brush holder clean (these can get SO gross), but also a way to keep your bathroom smelling fresh without having to constantly spray:

Pour a tiny bit of all purpose cleaner in the bottom of your toilet brush holder. I keeps the toilet brush clean killing the germs while also keeping the bathroom smelling great!

    You can also keep things from rusting on your counter by pulling out your clear nail polish and give the bottom and a slight millimeter or two up the sides a coating. Does the trick and it’s not noticeable.
