Are you cleaning your bathroom wrong?

The places you forget to clean, plus tips and tricks to clean your bathroom more quickly and effectively.

You forget to vacuum

Think your vacuum is only for carpet? Think again. Before cleaning your tile floors, vacuum or sweep to remove loose dirt and debris, then wash with a cleaning solution. It’ll save you time in the long run instead of scrubbing a filthy, dusty floor.

You forget to clean behind your toilet

Gross alert: Itâs way too easy for urine and fecal matter to build up back there, leaving an icky residue thatâs hard to clean. Roll up a few paper towels (you're better off with these for this dirty job than a reusable cloth), dip them in antibacterial cleaner, and, while facing the throne, âflossâ the back of the toilet. Let it sit for a few minutes and then âflossâ again with a dry paper towel to finish the job.

You do not clean your hairbrush

Like sponges or carpets, hairbrushes trap unwanted dust, dirt, oils, and old hair product. Each time you brush with a dirty hairbrush, you re-deposit all the dust, dirt, and oils back into your mane! Remove all hair caught in the bristles. Mix a solution of 1 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of shampoo, and 1 teaspoon of baking soda, then apply to the bristles and base gently with an old toothbrush. 

You do not clean your toothbrush (ew!)

A recent study from the University of Manchester found that the average toothbrush contained about 10 million germs, including E. coli. Rinse it well after each use and occasionally soak it in a cup of vinegar for about 30 minutes to take care of any leftover bacteria. Replace your toothbrush every three monthsâbut save the old one; you can use it to clean hard-to-reach places around the house. 

You use paper towels

Meet your new best friend, the microfiber cloth. These cloths are composed of ultrafine synthetic fibers woven together to create a static charge that attracts dirt and dust, so you can tackle dusting without using sprays. Even betterâyou can wash and reuse them so the environment will thank you, too.

You scrub your plastic shower curtains

Donât waste any energy scrubbing a shower curtain liner. Throw it into the washing machine with a couple of towels, a cup of vinegar, and run for about five minutes. Let the towels and curtain soak in the water for an hour before turning the machine back on to finish the cycle. Hang to dry.

You clean surfaces at room temperature


Heating your tub, sink, and tiles just 10 degrees above normal air temperature can double the effectiveness of alkaline cleansers. Fill your tub or sink with the hottest water you can run from the tap and let it sit for a few minutes before scrubbing these areas clean.
