3 Easy Bathroom Cleaning Tips and Tricks

Okay, class, today your assignment is to watch the video and then read the notes below. 😉

Whew! How much can a girl sweat from cleaning?! I never had this problem til I hit my forties. Oh well, that’s another topic for another day.

I want to share with you a few bathroom cleaning tips. The first one comes from One Good Thing by Jillee. One of her readers cleaned houses for something like 20 years and left Jillian with tips on “how to clean the bathroom like a pro.” My favorite tip was letting the toilet bowl brush drip dry over the commode.

This next tip, believe it or not, was new to me the first time I read it in a magazine. It’s pretty common sense though, and that is to dust and clean from top to bottom. You want to work your way down so that you don’t get dirt on already clean surfaces.

And last, after being frustrated with “the blue stuff” and other multi-surface cleaners, I am so pleased to finally find a window and mirror cleaning product that really works. You can even use it on your windshield.  Fish Foam products can be purchased online at fishfoam.com  While you’re there, check to see if you have a Fish Window Cleaning location near you.

  1. Oh no…now I’m going to be cleaning bathrooms tomorrow!!! Thanks for the tips…that brush one is a keeper for sure!!!

  2. ps…I have to get some of that!!! Great video!

  3. Julie, I had put it off so long…couldn’t wait another day. I love that brush tip. It doesn’t take much to make me happy.

  4. You can get it online at fishfoam.com

  5. Terri Jay says:

    Mirror streaks are the what I dread the most about cleaning the bathroom. I have found many great productis over the years – but I have nerver run across fishfoam befor. I will be checking it out very soon.

  6. For someone who eres on the side of OCD, mirror streaks are a thorn in my side. Fish Foam can be ordered online, if you decide to get it.

  7. I looked on the website that you listed to try and find a listing for what the ingredients are of either the phone or the natural versions and I cannot find it. Can you direct me? Do they have an MSDS for either one? thanks!

  8. Hi Karen,

    The contents on the can reads: water (7732-18-5), Isoprpanol (67-63-0), Isobutane (75-28-5), Propylene Glycol Monopropyl Ether (1569-01-3), NUTSRN 80100049-5026P

    I am actually testing a different product called Bio Green Clean that is supposed to be a good window/mirror cleaner. I haven’t tested in my mirrors yet, though. I have tested it on appliances, countertops, floors, doors, tub, sinks, and toilet and it cleans very well.

    It is all natural as well. You can buy it on their website, Amazon and some retail stores (but don’t know which ones yet) The review post will be on the blog by this Friday.

  9. What is the best way, and the best product and/or products to use in cleaning a toilet with really bad rust and hard water stains?

  10. Hi Kim,

    We have hard water, too. So, this is the cleaning process I’ve landed on: I use Bio Green Clean to clean the toilet. It is an all natural cleaner that works really well. For old stains, you may have to let the cleaner sit a while as well as clean a second or third time. I also use a pumice stone to rid of the stubborn “ring” around the toilet. It removes stains without scratching the porcelain. And, I occasionally clean the toilet with Clorox toilet cleaner for its whitening and brightening effect.

    Bio Green Clean can be purchased through their website or on Amazon.

  11. I use Home Depot’s, Zep foaming glass cleaner. Zep has many other wonderful products. I have used these products for several years. All the Zep products are grouped together. They are located near the garden center or where their cleaning products are. This is a great product and easily available. PS I do not work for Home Depot.

  12. Thank you for the recommendations, Linda. I’ve used Zep for grout, but didn’t realize they had other products. I’ll have to take a look next time I visit Home Depot.
