Shower walls and glass:

Bathrooms Are Us 230ml Streak-free glass wax for $20.00 per bottle

The first great Bathroom Cleaning Hints and Tips Alkaline deposits in the water cause spots on your glass doors and shower walls. Apply a car wax to the walls and doors, but not the floor. Fiberglass and glass are porous. The car wax seals the pores, which makes cleaning easier and keeps the water spots away. Reapply the wax every six months.

Squeegee or wipe down your shower after each use to further prevent build-up. To prevent soap scum build-up, use liquid soap, natural soap, or Dove. Talc is most soap bars cause the build-up. Glass shower doors should be wiped down once a week with a sponge dipped into full-strength white vinegar and then rinsed. Shower door tracks can be cleaned with a toothbrush or cotton bud dipped into a solution of bleach and water.

Metal shower frames

Water spots on metal shower frames are difficult to remove. Apply a small amount of lemon oil onto a rag and rub over the metal. Buff the metal to shine
with a dry clean cloth. Like liquid car wax, the lemon oil helps repel water making future cleaning easier and quicker.

Smelly waste drains:

This is the #1 Bathroom Cleaning Hints and Tips for me. Smelly odors from waste drains are caused by a build-up of hair and body fats trapped in the pipes. The only way to clean the pipes entirely is to have a licensed plumber use a special acid
chemical that strips away the build-up. These products are not available to the general public.
In the meantime, here are some tips to keep smells at bay:

  • pour half a cup of bleach or chlorine down the offending drain – do not rinse for at least
    half an hour and allow it to penetrate the trapped muck. This will kill the bacteria and
    minimize the smell. Usually, this is required every fortnight or so.
  • Alternatively, a preventative clean to keep them clear of grease, oil, and hair – Pour half
    a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by half cup of white vinegar. (It will foam
    up). Leave it for a few minutes to dissolve fatty acids, then pour boiling water down the
    drain to wash out the clogs.

Unclog Showerheads

When showerheads become blocked with mineral deposits, fill a plastic bag with undiluted white vinegar and place the bag over the head so it is submerged; secure and seal the bag with a rubber band. Leave to soak overnight, scrub the face with an old toothbrush in the morning and rinse. Do you have a leaking or blocked shower head? We repair leaking showers!


To remove a hard-water ring from the inside the toilet, pour white vinegar into the bowl and let it sit for an hour. Scrub clean and flush.
Put a small amount of disinfectant or squeeze a lemon into the bottom of the toilet brush holder to keep it smelling fresh.

Baths and vanities

One of the best Bathroom Cleaning Hints and Tips is to Use non-abrasive cleaners on baths, shower tiles, and vanities. Natural cleaners such as diluted white vinegar or use Bathrooms Are Us 230ml cleaner and polish for $20.00 per bottle.

Clean Bath Toys

Clean bacteria, mould, and mildew from bath toys by giving them a vinegar and water bath. Fill a bucket or a large bowl with warm water, add half a cup of white vinegar to approximately four litres of water. Soak the toys for ten minutes, rub gently with a sponge and allow them to dry.
The acid in vinegar cuts through dirt buildup and also works as a natural disinfectant.
