Home cleaning is what we ought to do in our lovely dwelling place. When we say home cleaning, it includes all the rooms. That’s right. It includes the bathroom.

If there’s one compound word to describe the bathroom chores: NIGHTMARE!

Seriously, who daydreams about cleaning the room where our divine human excretion is removed and deposited? NO ONE. It’s utterly depressing! Almost slaving yourself to remove the water stains and the mass of hair that clogged the water drain are plainly disgusting. But let’s face it: no matter how times many we say ‘yuck’ and ‘ew’, we can never escape from the fact that we NEED to clean our bathroom. Take note: it is a need.

However, despite the importance, there’s no need to sweat big time to turn it into a shining, shimmering, splendid bathroom. Also, deep cleaning your bathroom doesn’t always include the use harsh chemicals. Why resort to nauseatingly, strong-smelling chemicals when you can make of use of natural items in your kitchen?

To get the dirty job done, you can always hire a condo cleaner and maid service or avail general cleaning services from a cleaning company if you live around Metro Manila. But you too, can make a difference.

The only lingering question is HOW?

Have no fear. The bathroom tricks are here! Make your life simple with these efficient bathroom hacks:

Mirror, mirror on the wall
