Your bath or shower time is a relaxing part of your day when you can take time for yourself to unwind and pamper. So, having a cleaner and more organised bathroom will make washing time feel like a day at the spa with these tips and tricks. I have also added some handy body and hair hacks to help you look and feel your best.
Cleaning Your Bathtub/Shower
This part of your bathroom gets a lot of use by your family from the day so it’s important the dirt and soap residue is cleaned away to help you maintain a clean area. You can do this in just a quick few minutes with the Susi’s Scrubber – Bath/Shower Scrubber, the innovative design will see your shower sparkling in no time.
It has four 4 layers of fast-acting cleaning materials and two different cleaning sides. One side is slightly scratchy and absorbent, this is designed to be soft on your hands, gentle on sensitive surfaces but still able to wipe away grime. The other side is fully scratchy (in a non-scratch way) and will remove mess and soap residue.
To use the scrubber, simply squeeze a few drops of dish soap on the scrubber and you’re ready to scrub. You then rinse it out and use the handy loop to hang it up to dry – another great thing about the scrubber is that is doesn’t hold that gross damp smell after use.
Change Your Routine For A Cleaner And More Organised Bathroom
- If you have long hair get in the routine of brushing it before showering to reduce hair blocking the drains. Another trick for stopping hair clogging up the drains is to use disposable hair traps – you don’t want to be collecting fur balls from the drains.
- To give your shower a deep clean, fill a plastic bag with white vinegar and securely tie it around your showerhead, then leave it there overnight to soak. Scrub the showerhead in the morning with your shower scrubber and you’ll have yourself a squeaky-clean showerhead.
- If you place tinned products on your bathroom surfaces this could cause a rust mark to be left behind, to prevent this from happening paint the bottoms of the cans with clear nail polish.
- If your shower curtain has mildew at the bottom it may be too long. To prevent this from happening trim your shower curtain liner, so that it will hang near the bottom but without touching it.
- Hang an over-the-door shoe organiser in your shower to hold your shower products. This is a game-changer – you’ll never go back to those tiny shower holders again.
- Another alternative way to store your products is to hang them from a curtain rod, if you have one. With handy curtain clips, you’ll never lose a product again.
- Clean your shower with a grapefruit, cut the fruit in half a rub it over the tub/shower and then simply wipe it away with a damp shower scrubber. It is not only natural and effective; it also leaves a lovely citrusy smell behind.
- Instead of waiting for your tub to look noticeably dirty, keep your shower/bath scrubber hanging up in the shower so you can then quickly scrub your shower down each time after you finish showering.
Hacks For You
When it comes to your hair washing routine try to avoid over-washing your hair as this will overtime cause it to become dull. Try to figure out how long you can go without washing it and stick to the routine of leaving it for as long as possible, some people’s hair becomes greasier quicker than others.
Talking of grease, to keep it at bay for as long as possible try to resist the urge to touch your hair too much. Also, lather your hair in coconut oil the night before you wash it, this will help to add moisture to your hair and add shine.
When you’re showering let the conditioner soak in for five minutes, before brushing through it with a comb this will leave your hair feeling soft and silky. Finish washing your hair using cold water, this will close the hair cuticles and add shine.
Finally, towel dry your hair with a hundred percent cotton t-shirt to reduce frizz in your hair rather than a terrycloth one. Which is rougher texture and produces too much friction – which of course leads to frizz.
To create a spa like environment at home, make a homemade bath potion to help combat dry skin.
A great one is a soothing milk bath, to make the potion fill the tub up to halfway with warm water and add two cups of milk (this can be cows milk or an alternative such as coconut or soya milk), finally add a couple of drops of aloe-vera for its antibacterial benefits. The vitamins (A and D) and proteins found in this bath will help to soothe your skin and will leave it feeling supple.
While you’re in the tub scrub away dead skin cells to make your skin glow with Susi’s Body Scrubber. Like the bath/shower scrubber it is available in multiple colours, so you will be able to easily identify which is which.
After you have scrubbed away those dead skin cells which have opened up your pores, your moisturiser will now penetrate deeper into your skin. So, it is important that you identify your skin type and select the most suitable one for you to see the best possible results. If you have dry skin, try an oil instead of a cream for its hydrating benefits.
Last but most definitely not least, as this is my favourite time-saving hack. This is not a hair or body hack but one you need to know. Hang your clothes up in the bathroom whilst you shower, the steam will release the wrinkles making your clothes ready to wear without at iron!!
I hope this post has helped to make your bathroom a more enjoyable place to be. If you have any more tips and tricks, I would love for you to share them with me!
