Let’s be real. Cleaning your bathroom is a drag. It can get really gross, and having the wrong tools just makes the job 10 times more miserable.
Which is why we’re here. To set you up for success with products that actually work. From your shower to your medicine cabinet to, yes, the dreaded toilet. Everything on this list will surely get the job done. No shuddering required.
Prepare to be amazed. This spray starts out blue, but turns white when it’s ready to be wiped. It can get rid of soap scum, hard water, calcium, and lime stains. Plus, it doesn’t require tough scrubbing. And with a Walmart+ membership, you can get items like this (and wayyy more) shipped next-day for free. Yep, you read that right.* ($6.78/2 pack, Walmart)
Sometimes you can’t get rid of a stain with elbow grease alone. And that’s okay. This electric brush can do the work for you. It’s got four heads, with a dome brush that’s ideal for sinks and bathtubs. You can use it anywhere in the bathroom, even on walls and ceilings. It’ll run for 90 minutes before it needs a recharge. Cleaning power hour, commence. ($69.99+, Amazon)
Those hard-to-reach places in your homes that vacuums can’t conquer? This glove to the rescue. Just wet with water to get started. And while you’re at it, might as well dust the blinds and any fragile ceramic jars. Score. ($14.99, Amazon)
No more standing in murky puddles. It sits inside the drain and catches all the hair you seem to lose while showering. Plus, it’s designed to not block water flow. And it takes 0.2 seconds to clean. Quick and painless. ($11.99+, Amazon)
So makeup, prescription bottles, cotton balls, and whatever else you’re keeping will actually have a designated place. You can group like items. And have one slot dedicated to Q-tips and bobby pins. Bless. ($6.99, The Container Store)
Introducing Bar Keepers Friend. It can be used in the bathroom, in the kitchen, and on cookware to remove stains and restore shine. It’ll also work its magic on stainless steel, porcelain, brass, copper, glass, ceramic, chrome, and aluminum. (So literally everything.) Just sprinkle it onto a wet surface, rub to activate, and let it sit for a minute or so. Then wash off. Easy peasy. ($7.89, Amazon)
This one is clear so you’ll be able to see everything. Every brow pencil. Every mascara. You can separate items into drawers, or keep your most-used items in the slots on top. Goodbye, crazily packed bathroom drawer that currently houses your makeup. You will (not) be missed. ($34.99, Wayfair)
Like your blow dryer, curling iron, straightener, and hairbrush. It’ll act as a little home for hot tools that are cooling down, too. So you don’t have to hog counter space. Or take up that precious area underneath the sink. The entire unit can be mounted to the wall to help clear clutter. ($24.99, The Container Store)
Apply, let it sit for up to eight hours, and then wipe away. The concentrated gel formula literally clings to tiles. So it won’t run or drip down walls. It’ll stay in place and do its job. Especially in shower corners where mildew tends to grow over time. No more unsightly black spots. ($12.99, Amazon)
Vinegar descales very slowly. But this formula works quickly to get rid of limescale and calcium buildup. All you’ve gotta do it soak your shower head and then wipe clean. Pstt...bubbles are a good sign. It means the formula is working. ($12.99+, Amazon)
No more hard water stains or soap scum. Now you can wipe that away right after you’re done shampooing and conditioning. You can also wipe away excess water and fog from bathroom mirrors. The squeegee comes with an adhesive hook so you can hang it nearby. ($13.99+, Amazon)
Unsightly marks on your toilet bowl? Not with this pumice stone. It’s abrasive so it can easily scrub away rust and mineral buildup. With the handle, you won’t have to actually touch the bowl either. You can work with gloves to remove rings. ($10.96+, Amazon)
