Skip the Chemicals With These 4 All-Natural Bathroom Cleaning Tips


Need to clean the bathroom but running low on conventional cleaning products? These four unconventional tips will help get the job done.

Use vodka to clean porcelain and chrome.

Believe it or not, vodka comes in handy when you have cleaning to do. Pour a little onto a cloth and use it to wipe down porcelain and chrome in your bathroom. Give the sink, toilet, bathtub, and faucets a once-over and watch the glossy shine reappear.

Use Gatorade to clean the toilet.

The overpowering smell of chemicals can make cleaning the bathroom harder than it should be. Next time, instead of pulling out the bleach, try putting two cups of Gatorade in the toilet. Normally consumed as an energy drink, Gatorade has the power to turn you into the Michael Jordan of cleaning. Leave it in the toilet for one hour and then scrub away.

Get rid of ceiling cobwebs with a yardstick and a sock.

Can you see cobwebs in the corners of your bathroom ceiling? If you don’t have a stepladder, use a yardstick (or something similar) with a sock on the end to reach into the corners of the bathroom ceiling.

Clean glass with coffee filters.

There are several ways to clean mirrors and shower glass, but some end up being more work than they’re worth. While spritzing some window spray onto a rag or newspaper are popular methods, coffee filters are even better. Why? Because they don’t leave lint or ink behind.
