Get rid of water spots on your chrome fixtures with lemon. Just rub it over the chrome and those spots will disappear!
Lemon is great for getting rid of odors, actually. Make this cleaning paste to get rid of that stinky pee smell that never seems to go away. If you live with boys, you know what I’m talking about! And to eliminate poo bathroom odors, make this “Before You Go” spray. It works great.
Let your toilet bowl brush drip dry after each use by closing the seat on the handle. No more nasty water in the toilet brush holder!
Speaking of the toilet bowl brush, you should definitely pour some disinfectant into the brush holder to minimize the germ factor. Brilliant!
Grout looking gross? Clean it with a bleach pen! It may be time consuming, but it does the trick.
Cleaning the bathtub drain is a nasty job, but someone’s gotta do it. When yours gets slow, try this technique with pliers, a screwdriver, baking soda and vinegar.
When your chrome fixtures look dull, polish them to a shine with baby oil. They’ll look like new!

When the pee smell in your bathroom just won’t go away, it’s time to break out the big guns… or at least the screwdriver. Remove the seat and lid, cover the end of the screwdriver with a disinfectant wipe, and clean under the tank and around the screws. Little things make a big difference when it comes to keeping the bathroom fresh.
