7. Brillo pads. Use a brillo pad to clean off soap scum and water spots from shower doors. The brillo pads won’t scratch the glass and can also be used to scrub the bathtub as well. Another tip to help keep water spots off the shower door is to squeegee the glass shower doors after you get out of the shower.
8. Ceiling fan. We never think to clean from top to bottom in a room. Not doing so can result in cleaning surfaces more than once. Clean the ceiling fan blades first, move to the tops of furniture and work downwards from there. Any dust that gets swept onto the floor then gets swept up and the room is the cleanest it’s ever been.
9. The dreaded toilet brush. No one enjoys cleaning the toilet but it has to be done. The toilet brush has the worst job and is the grossest part about scrubbing the toilet. After scrubbing with the brush it normally gets put back into its holder, wet and nasty. Next time it’s time to scrub the toilet, close the lid on top of the toilet brush handle and let it drip dry in the toilet.
10. Large Zip top bag. There always seems to be something that smells that can’t go in the washer. Grab a large zip top bag, place whatever the object is in the bag and put in the freezer overnight. The cold air in the freezer kills the smelly bacteria, eliminating the smell.
11. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. Coffee stains just about everything it touches. Even the mugs used to drink it. Use a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser to wipe away the coffee stains inside of your mugs. The magic eraser is made of melamine foam and it is a gentle abrasive to scrub away stains.
12. Pumice Stone. Use a wet pumice stone to remove toilet rings and other stains. Make sure the stone is wet, a dry stone will scratch the surfaced that you’re cleaning. Throw in a cup of baking soda into the toilet bowl first to get a deeper clean.
