3 household items you can use to clean your bathroom

Is cleaning your bathroom one of your least favorite chores? It doesn’t have to be that bad!

In fact, you can actually use a few common household items to make cleaning your bathroom easier than ever. And, as a bonus, it means you can ditch the harsh and sometimes toxic cleaning supplies in favor of more natural options. Win-win!

Clean Your Bathroom with These 3 Household Items


White vinegar is not just for the kitchen! It can be used as a safe and natural cleaner for almost every surface of your bathroom. Here are some of the most common ways you can use vinegar to make cleaning your bathroom a breeze:

  • Mix vinegar with equal parts of hot water into a plastic bag. Then, use a rubber band to secure the bag around your shower head and let it sit for a couple of hours. Remove the band and run the water to clear the vinegar mixture out of the nozzles and enjoy your clean and sparkly shower head.
  • Mix equal parts vinegar and water in an empty spray bottle and use it as a solution to clean your bathroom mirror. It will leave your mirror clean and free of streaks.

Baking Soda

You probably keep baking soda in your kitchen for baking cookies and in your fridge to eliminate odors, but it can also be used in your bathroom. Give these tips a try:

  • Dampen a sponge and sprinkle baking soda on it to scrub away soap scum in your bathtub or shower.
  • Mix baking soda together with water to form a paste. Then, dip an old toothbrush in the paste to scrub tile grout, leaving it clean and free of dirt and grime.

Hydrogen Peroxide

Hydrogen peroxide is a staple in most first aid kits, but you can also use it to keep your bathroom nice and clean. Here are a few ways you can incorporate it into your cleaning routine:

  • Pour 1/2 cup of hydrogen peroxide in your toilet bowl and let it sit for about 30 minutes. Then, use a toilet brush to scrub away stains. The result is a sparkling commode with no need for toilet bowl cleaner.
  • Mix equal parts water and hydrogen peroxide in an empty spray bottle and spray the mixture on mildew. Let it sit for a few minutes and wipe away. Just remember to always use gloves and eye protection when dealing with mold or mildew yourself.
