Tip #1

For faucets that really shine, wipe down faucets and similar surfaces first with a slightly damp cloth, then buff with a dry towel.

Tip #2

Use floss to get the grime out of anywhere around your faucet or toilet handle that look, well… grimy.

Tip #3

Use an old toothbrush to scrub small and hard-to-reach places, such as shower door rails, the tops and bottoms of baseboards, and those pesky fan covers that are always hard to reach.

Tip #4

Rub away soap scum and bathtub rings with natural abrasives you have around the house. A loofah sponge also works wonders.

Tip #5

Use floss to get the grime out of anywhere around your faucet or toilet handle that look, well… grimy.

Tip #6

Use an old toothbrush to scrub small and hard-to-reach places, such as shower door rails, the tops and bottoms of baseboards, and those annoying fan covers that are always hard to reach.

Tip #7

Clean your toilet brush by pouring 1 cup of washing soda, 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide, and 1/2 cup white vinegar into the water of the toilet bowl and letting the brush sit in the mixture for several hours. Flush and rinse the brush in the fresh water, then let the brush dry by laying the brush across one part of the seat so that brush itself hangs over the water, then closing the lid to hold the brush in place.

Tip #8

Clear scum and build-up out of your drains by putting 1 cup baking soda into the drain, then pour 1 cup white vinegar down the drain and let the mixture fizz for 5-10 minutes. Pour 1 kettle of boiling water over to flush.

Tip #9

To make mirrors shine, use isopropyl alcohol. I make my glass and window cleaner with 1 part isopropyl alcohol, 1 part white vinegar, and 2 parts distilled water. Spray, wipe, then buff with a lint-free cloth for a perfectly streak-free shine.

Tip #10

Sliding shower door tracks can be infuriating to get really clean, but no more! After you’ve wiped away as much gunk as you can with a sponge or a cloth, spray the tracks with all-purpose cleaner, then place a thin, sturdy cloth over a flat-head screwdriver or a pointed chopstick and scrub all the way into the crevices along each side. You can sprinkle a little bit of baking soda if you need a bit more oomph. I like to finish this by running a cotton-tipped swab along the length of the crevice. Wipe and rinse until all the grime residue is gone, then spray lightly with WD-40 or rub with coconut oil for a smoother glide, if necessary.
