These easy and DIY ideas will help you keep your bathroom comfortable and dirt-free without harming Mother Nature:
Clean Every Day
Taking five minutes a day will keep those intense cleanings at bay. First, stop using harsh scouring powder for the tub. It is too abrasive to use regularly. After showering, take a minute to wipe down the tub and faucets with a terry-cloth towel to help remove soap scum and prevent mineral deposits.
Clean Up After Every Shower
Pull the shower curtain closed when not in use, so water can’t sit in the folds. Spread towels over two hooks to dry, or hang them on rods instead. Wipe shower walls with a squeegee after every use.
Natural Way to Scrub Your Tub
This is a nontoxic but effective way to clean your tub: Add one teaspoon of liquid soap and several drops of an antibacterial essential oil (such as tea tree, eucalyptus, rosemary, or peppermint) to one cup of baking soda. Add just enough water to form a paste, and use it with a sponge or brush to scour bathtub surfaces.
How to Unclog Showerheads
If a showerhead becomes clogged with mineral deposits, fill a plastic bag with undiluted white vinegar and place the bag over the head so it is submerged; secure and seal the bag with a rubber band. Soak overnight and then scrub the face with a toothbrush.
How to Gently Clean Marble
Marble is a beautiful surface for counters and tabletops. But because it is quite soft and porous, marble can easily be stained, scratched, and chipped. Because of this, regular cleanings should be as gentle as possible.
