A Tuesday Tip - Cleaning the Bathroom

I had successfully gotten out of cleaning the bathrooms as my children got older. However, this last year I found myself back with the scrub brush since Emelie took over cooking dinner two nights a week. Not a bad trade off...

I am constantly amazed at how disgusting our bathrooms get. I want to get them really clean, but don't have hours to spend on the task. Here's a couple things I do to get the job done well and quickly.
  • Clean your bathroom after a steamy bath or shower. The walls, fixtures, etc., will be much easier to clean, because the steam will have loosened the dirt
  • Rub glass shower doors with a white vinegar dampened sponge to remove soap residue.
  • Dip a cloth in kerosene or rubbing alcohol to remove scum and spots from your bathroom fixtures.
  • Insert a sponge into the leg of an old nylon stocking and knot the end. Use it to scrub sinks, bathtub, tile, etc.
