Do you just hate to get down on your knees and scrub the bathtub??? Well I do!!! First I am getting to old and my knees "creek" and second it is just no fun!!
Some years ago I got the idea it would work just fine to use a broom to stand and scrub and it does work beautifully!! Not a synthetic broom, an old style corn broom with those stiff yet pliable stick like bristles. Anyway I just put the shower head on with good old fashioned hot water, shut it back off and douse with whatever cleaner I am using (I like the soft scrub type.) then use the broom to scrub away.
Occasionally, (Maybe once a year just for good measure.) I will still get down and do the scrub by hand down on my knees thing but in all of the in between times the broom is my best friend.
My other best friends in the bathroom are Clorox bleach and rubbing alcohol. I always pour about a cup of bleach in the toilet bowl to disinfect and whiten. It works beautifully and is inexpensive. You can use more and let it stand longer if you need too. BE SURE TO CLOSE THE LID IF YOU HAVE PETS IN YOUR HOME. If a pet were to drink the bleach laden water it would prove to be a tragedy.
Rubbing alcohol is also perfect to give the toothbrushes a quick dip into to disinfect them. I just pour a small amount over the bristles into a glass container. Then rinse and air dry. Just toss the used alcohol into the commode and it does double duty!! This is another inexpensive practice.
This is my routine of quick and easy bathroom cleaning. If you have any tips I would love to know them. Please post them in the comments section because this old dog just loves to learn from the tips of others.
I also save decorative tins and use the larger ones for trash cans and line them too with appropriately sized grocery sacks. A penny saved is indeed a penny earned in today's world.
PS: Your bar soap will last a lot longer if you remove the bars from their boxes and set them out in a basket or such. The air will harden them which enables them to last longer. It will also make the bathroom smell nice depending on what soaps you purchase.
