5 Bathroom “Home Hacks”

Looking to be a little more environmentally friendly in the New Year? Maybe cut down the spending a little more than usual, starting with those expensive bathroom cleaners you never actually want to use.

Bohen.com has 5 simple and creative “home hacks” that can get your bathroom good as new with little things you wouldn’t think of! Check them out here:

1. Use Grapefruit to Clean Your Bath – All you need is one whole medium to large grapefruit and about ¼ cup of salt. Cut the grapefruit in half and sprinkle one half with a fair amount of salt. Next, wet the surface of the bath and sprinkle any salt you have left around the bottom of the tub. Take the half and scrub around the bath, squeezing the half to release some juice around fixtures and concentrating on areas that are thick with grime. Make sure to pick up fresh batches of salt from around the bath every few seconds so that you don’t end up running out. When you notice the grapefruit half getting dry, switch to the other half and continue. When you covered it all, rinse with water and you’re done! You can also use this trick on shower areas, sinks, toilets and more, plus your bathroom will smell amazing once you finished.

2. Use Lemon to Clean Shower Doors – Simply cut a lemon in half and rub the inside over stains on shower doors. If the stains are particularly stubborn, rub the area and let it sit for a few minutes. You should then be able to rub away the stains with ease!

3. Use Petroleum Jelly on a Shower Curtain – If your shower curtain s being stubborn and the rings keep getting stuck on the rod, apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to the rod so this little annoyance goes away!

4. Use Petroleum Jelly on a Plunger – When you’re using a plunger to unclog a toilet or sink then you want as much suction as possible. One way to increase the amount of suction you’re getting is to apply petroleum jelly around the rim of the bell or cup. This tightens up the seal and increases the suction, with the added bonus of helping prevent drying out and cracking.

5. Use Helium Balloons to Clean Cobwebs – Cobwebs can sometimes be hard to reach with a duster, especially when they’re right in a corner of a high ceiling. Instead of risking injury, grab a helium balloon and drag it across the ceiling making sure to cover each corner. Webs will simply latch on to the balloon in your ceilings are cleaner within in minutes!
