If you’re anything like me, it’s probably early Wednesday afternoon and you’re looking around your room wondering what else you could do to keep your space clean and organized despite the constant flow of tasks and appointments arriving on your calendar.

It drives you a little bit crazy because sometimes you feel that you’ve done enough…but not enough at the same time and at some point, change has to be done and that’s why you’re here.

In the world of cleaning, there are tools that are designed to become your efficient companion in every type of cleaning situation and one of them is the Dovety Electric Spin Scrubber. While this boasts a versatile trove of brush heads, an retractable body and a long-battery life, maximizing its use also depends on the techniques you use around the home.

That’s what we’re going to chat about today! We’re going to uncover the five eco-friendly tips you can use to clean your bathroom which is an important area of your home, while being kind to the Earth as well.

Switch to Sustainable Ingredients and Packaging

We all love our jifs and Mr. Cleans and while these household names are incredibly effective in cleaning bathrooms and more, they contain strong ingredients that are often harmful to the environment – especially when they’re rinsed down the sink and eventually end up in our oceans. 

The best way to reduce the presence of such concentrated chemicals is by making a switch to sustainable ingredients and packaging. An all-purpose cleaner concentrate is a great one to start with! They usually come in a small bottle and mixing a few drops with water onto your glass spray allows you to maximize the use of the product without buying a new bottle of cleaner each time – less empty bottles to throw and more uses to clean your bathroom surfaces.

Switch to Reusable Cleaning Tools

Think that using tissue paper is enough to wipe those surfaces down?

Think again!

That’s because tissue paper is meant to clean simpler instances of dirt, grime and stains – so using them in the context of deep cleaning a bathroom is not really the best choice because you’re going to be forced to use a ton of them just to clean a small area. 

What you can do instead is to switch to reusable cleaning tools such as microfibre cloths and rechargeable devices such as the aforementioned spin scrubber. These tools are easier to use because like the microfibre towel, you can simply wash them on the sink and let it dry before reuse and for devices like the spin scrubber, you can charge it for about three hours and get the same amount of run-time.

Speaking of the spin scrubber, Dovety has one that you can use because its versatile set of brush heads, retractable body and long battery life can definitely assist you in your cleaning activities without creating unnecessary waste that comes from buying separate devices.

Utilize Vinegar and Baking Soda

Don’t take these two ingredients for granted because not only can they be found in the pantry, they can also be used to deep clean your bathroom!

Mixing equal parts of these two can actually create a powerful cleaning paste that removes mildew, soap scum, grime and stains from tiles, sinks, tubs and even door seals – can you believe that?!

That’s because the baking soda acts as an abrasive while the vinegar acts as solvent and disinfectant. Pretty cool, right?

You can even use this duo when cleaning the drain too! Just pour boiling water down the shower drain, add a half-cup of baking soda, a quarter-cup of salt and a cup of vinegar. Wait ten minutes before adding more boiling water and watch as your drain de-clogs itself and washes away all the built-up dirt.

Using Lemon instead of Air Freshener

Ever stood in front of your garbage and sighed because you used up one to many Air Wicks again?

I found myself in the same situation and on that day, I decided to find a better way to make my bathroom smell good…and that’s when I discovered using lemons.

As they say: with lemons, make lemonade. Well, I made a lemon deodorizer instead!

Cut a lemon in half and rub it on small surfaces like the faucet, countertops and shower door to deodorize the bathroom and then let the scent of lemons fill the room.

Now, I can come and use the bathroom in a refreshing and invigorating manner!

Clean your Shower Head

We love showers, that’s a fact.

But have you ever looked up and seen the shower head accumulate first within the holes water comes out from?

Admit it, it can get quite nasty.

But don’t fret! It’s incredibly important to clean this often overlooked part of your shower and an eco-friendly way to do it is to pour equal parts of vinegar and water onto a plastic bag and tie it around the shower head to soak and release all of that gunk away.

Then, you can just dispose of the dirty water and reuse the plastic bag for the next time you clean the shower head.

While it is incredibly difficult to clean the bathroom – it’s still important to take some time off your day to focus on cleaning every inch of it.

The bathroom is one of the places where most bacteria grow and using safe and effective ingredients and tools is the only way to make sure that every area is squeaky-clean and healthy for you and your family to use.

And because the Earth is in need of more people taking care of it, we hope that these tips allow you to continue cleaning your bathroom while being kind to the environment as well. Eventually, we will live in a future where the world is not facing a climate crisis and we can continue using eco-friendly ways to clean our homes to maintain Earth’s health for generations to live in after us!
