Here are 5 simple tricks for removing (and preventing) soap scum, disinfecting the toilet, and making your fixtures shine without breaking a sweat.

  1. Showerhead – Easily remove mineral deposits from your showerhead by soaking it in vinegar overnight. Simply fill a plastic zip lock bag with white vinegar, wrap it around the showerhead, and secure it with a rubber band. In the morning, wipe the showerhead down with a clean cloth.
  1. Mirror – Fill a clean spray bottle with a 50/50 solution of water and white vinegar and keep the bottle in your bathroom cabinet. After you brush your teeth in the morning, spray the mirror down and wipe with paper towel.
  1. Toilet bowl – Before jumping in the shower, flush the toilet and sprinkle the bowl with baking soda or Borax. Let it sit while you shower, then give it a scrub with a toilet brush.
  1. Chrome fixtures – Remove cloudy stains from chrome fixtures with lemon. Use half a squeezed lemon to polish away mineral and hard water deposits, them wipe clean with a soft cloth.
  1. Soap scum – Prevent soap scum build-up by wiping your shower walls down with a squeegee after each use. Use a terry cloth towel to wipe down the bathtub as well. If soap scum does build up, spray it with a 50/50 mixture of vinegar and water, let sit for a few minutes, then rinse clean.

Of course, if all the cleaning in the world still doesn’t get your bathroom looking the way you’d like it to, maybe it’s time to spruce things up with a new sink, faucet, shower, tub, and so on.  For help with your bathroom make-over project, contact Boden plumbing.  We offer great advice, superior products, plenty of options, and skilled installation service.  In short, everything it takes to make your bathroom look and feel like new.
