Top to Bottom Bathroom Cleaning Solutions you must know:

1. Vent cleaning

You can start off by dusting or cleaning the vent with a vacuum cleaner or plain microfiber cloth. Next, simply spray some water-diluted white vinegar mixture over your vent and wipe it clean using a microfiber towel.

Note: While cleaning the toilet vent, be careful not to get the spray inside of the vent.

2. Tiles and grouting

Bleach pens are surprisingly versatile cleaners. Just run a pen over the grout lines in your bathroom tile and let it set overnight. Make a semi-thick paste of 2 parts baking soda and 1 part hydrogen peroxide with 1 part dish soap to make a paste and using an old toothbrush, use it to clean your grouting and a bigger brush to clean your tiles. Let it rest for an hour or overnight and rinse off with warm water.

You can also mix 4 cups of hot water, 1/4 cup of baking soda, 1/4 cup of vinegar and 30 drops of lemon essential oil. Spray it on the grout or tiles. Leave it on for a few hours and rinse it off.

3. Showerhead

Take a zip lock bag or a plastic bag and fill it with a water-diluted solution of white vinegar and completely immerse the showerhead into the bag and tie it there for half an hour. Then, take it off and then scrub using an old toothbrush and rinse off with plain or warm water.
