8 Genius Life Hacks For The Bathroom
Does your bathroom mirror always fog up after you shower? And then it takes forever to finally be able to look in the mirror! When you want to clean, is your bucket too big to fit under the faucet? What about mold – does it seem to stick around, no matter how hard you scrub? Classic bathroom problems! Luckily, we have 8 quick fixes for all of the annoying issues that tend to pop up in the bathroom. Who knows, with these handy tips in your arsenal, it may even become your favorite room in the house!
1. Watch Videos While Sitting On The Toilet
Place your smartphone in your underwear so that you don't have to hold it, and you’ve got a hands-free setup for watching videos.
2. Fill Up Buckets Easily
- dustpan with a hollow handle
If your bucket won't fit under the tap in your bathroom sink, there’s a quick fix. Wedge a dustpan in the sink so that water flows into the wide end. Place your bucket on the ground very close to the sink. Wait for the water from the dustpan to run through the handle and into the bucket.
3. Defog Your Mirror
- dry towel
Apply polish onto the mirror and let it dry. Remove the polish with a dry cloth. Ta-da! No more steamy, foggy mirrors after showering.
4. Clean Soap Dish
- 2 rubber bands
Pull 2 rubber bands over the soap dish so that your bar of soap sits directly on the rubber bands, rather than in the dish. Now your soap dish will stay clean!
5. Get Rid Of Mold
- essential oil
Combine vinegar and essential oil in a bowl. Wipe away the mold with the mixture, and when the mold disappears you're left with a fragrant smell.
6. Clean The Toilet
Heat the handle of a toothbrush near the head of it. Bend the head to about a 90° angle. Now you have a practical cleaning brush that you can use to clean the lip of the toilet bowl quickly and easily.
7. Unclog The Drain
- zip ties
Use scissors to cut small notches into a zip tie. Thread a second zip tie through the fastener of the first, and pull the tie together to make a loop. Holding the loop of the second zip tie, push the notched zip tie down the drain. When you pull it out, the hair clogging the drain will get caught on the notches. Problem solved!
8. Save Your Razor From Rust
- glass with rice
Store your razor upside down in a glass filled with uncooked rice. The rice removes moisture from the razor, so your razor will stay rust-free longer.
Not only are these tips practical, they’re quick and easy. You’ll be enjoying your clean, convenient bathroom in no time!
