Before you call the plumber, try one of this easy, chemical-free fix.
Pour 1⁄2 cup baking soda down the drain, followed by 1⁄2 cup white vinegar. Let sit for 30 minutes to an hour. Repeat if necessary.
Cleaning your bath is awkward, to say the least. From bending over to kneeling on the tiles, comfort is not an option. But there’s an easier way. Once you’ve doused the bath in your cleaning product of choice, grab a broom and start scrubbing. It works wonders.
Melissa Maker, the cleaning expert behind the popular YouTube channel Clean My Space, says using a squeegee is the key to a spotless shower.
Melissa explains using a squeegee on the tiles and glass after each use “means you basically don’t ever have to scrub your shower again.”
Fill half a plastic bag with vinegar and place it over the shower head, making sure it’s submerged. Secure with a rubber band or zip tie and leave overnight.
In the morning, remove the bag and run the shower for a couple of minutes before using. All the gunk that has built up over time will fall away.
Toilet bombs are similar to a bath bomb (but for your toilet). They eliminate smells while giving your throne a quick clean.
