Today, I'm excited to share with you three bathroom cleaning hacks using vinegar and shaving foam to achieve a sparkly-looking space using simple items you probably already have at home. It’s almost like deep-cleaning the bathroom, but easier. Let's get started with this easy and effective bathroom cleaning tutorial!

Tools and materials

  • Kitchen tissue or paper towels
  • Dry towels or clean cloths
  • White vinegar
  • Shaving foam
How to clean chrome faucets

1. Shine your chrome faucets

To begin, grab some white vinegar and kitchen tissue or paper towels. Dip the kitchen tissue into the white vinegar until it's soaked.

Now, wrap the vinegar-soaked tissue around your chrome faucets, making sure it's snugly wrapped. This allows the vinegar to work its magic on any grime or water spots that have built up on the faucets.

Unwrapping the faucet

Leave the wrapped faucets undisturbed for about 45 minutes. This time allows the vinegar to break down and dissolve the stubborn stains. After the 45 minutes are up, unwrap the tissue and get ready to be amazed! Wipe down the faucets with a clean cloth to reveal their newfound shine and sparkle.

2. Deep clean your showerhead

Next up, let's tackle the showerhead. For this, you'll need vinegar again. Fill a container that's large enough to fit the showerhead with vinegar.

Wrapping the showerhead in vinegar

Wrap the showerhead

Gently submerge the showerhead in the vinegar, ensuring it's completely covered by the liquid. Now, be patient and let the showerhead soak in the vinegar for around 30 minutes. During this time, the vinegar will work its magic, effectively breaking down mineral deposits and limescale buildup that might have accumulated over time.

However, be careful not to soak the showerhead for more than 30 minutes, as extended soaking might damage some types of showerheads.

Removing water stains with shaving foam

3. Remove water stains from glass or mirrors

Are old water stains making your shower glass or mirrors look less than sparkling? Don't worry; we've got a quick solution! Reach for your shaving foam–it works wonders as a moisture repellent and is excellent for combating stubborn water stains. Start by applying a small dab of shaving foam on the water-stained areas. Remember, less is more here!

Now, take a dry towel and gently rub the foam across the stains. Allow the shaving foam to sit on the surface for about 10 minutes. This waiting period gives the foam enough time to work its magic on those pesky water stains.

After 10 minutes, grab a clean cloth and wipe down the shower glass or mirrors. You'll be thrilled to see the water stains vanish, leaving behind a sparkling, crystal-clear surface.

    I am curious about the shaving cream on the shower glass. Do you think that would work on the inside of car windshield as well? No matter what I use, I always end up with streaks that show up in the direct sunlight.

    I am curious as to whether the vinegar will etch the chrome overtime??? I was told not to use vinegar on stainless steel, metals in General or Granite for this reason.

    I have another hack to add... I use a make-up remover disposable cloth every night and most of it is not soiled when I finish as I don't wear a lot of make-up. I then use the clean half on the sink fixtures or the sink itself and am amazed at how shiny and clean this little cloth can make things. I kinda hate cleaning so this little touch up all around my bathroom each night has been helpful to keep surfaces clean and fresh.
