Use dirty things in your hands to clean your bathroom in 10 seconds.


In the comments to this post, our beloved Offbeat Homie Mich offered this tidbit of advice:

My quick cleaning tip is that when I've finished using a makeup remover wipe I turn it over so the clean side is out and use it to give my bathroom sink a quick wipe out of toothpaste residue/stray hairs/dropped powder from my makeup.

Ok so it's not a full bathroom clean but it means you can go a couple of extra days between full cleanings with bleach etc.

I love this! When I'm getting in the shower, I'll often use a dirty sock or pair of underwear to wipe out my bathroom sink or even swipe down the edge of the floor where it meets the floorboard. (Pro-tip: if using dirty underwear as a cleaning agent, be sure to bundle them sunny-side in.) The clothes are going into the wash any way, and the dirty things are already in my hand — might as well do a 10-second wipe-down to make the bathroom a bit less grimey.
