Time to Clean the Bathroom!

March 18, 2013

Let’s face it.  Not many of us out there like to clean the bathroom.  And even though I love a clean bathroom, I always seem to leave it for last on my cleaning list.

When I think of the bathroom, I used to think of mold, hard water stains, soap scum and scrubbing!  But not anymore, thanks to this great tip and wonderful recipe I recently tried that I would like to share with you.

Because soap scum is a buildup of body oils, shampoos, soaps, and mineral deposits, sometimes scrubbing with bathroom cleaner alone will not solve the problem.  Cleaning with baking soda, however, will.

Pour some baking soda on a damp cloth or sponge and scrub. 

For those tougher stains, add some vinegar to the baking soda and spread the mixture onto the stain.  The acidity in the vinegar will break down the soap scum.  After a few minutes, scrub, wipe, and rinse.  Lemon juice mixed with baking soda and vinegar should also help remove scum buildup.
