This Toolbox Staple Is Also a Powerful Bathroom Cleaner

Arguably, one of the worst chores is cleaning the bathroom. However, there might be a secret to getting that stubborn soap scum off your shower.

WD-40 can be used as a bathroom cleaner, and it could even make the process easier.

When you think of WD-40, you likely think of stopping your door hinges from squeaking or adding lubricant to tools, but it’s also an effective cleaner. The multi-purpose product can help break down and displace both soap scum and nasty bits in your shower grout.

WD-40 Multi-Use Product

Next time you need to clean the grout, reach in your toolbox.

To use it on your shower tile or doors, simply spray it onto a towel and wipe down the surface. You’ll then follow it up with soap and water or glass cleaner (if used on your doors). As for the grout, if there is particularly stuck-on grime, spray the WD-40 onto the affected area and allow it to sit for several minutes. Then, wipe it away and follow with soap and water. Easy peasy, right?

While WD-40 is a shocking product you can use to clean the bathroom, it’s not the only one. Those with toilet bowl stains should look into grabbing a bottle of Coca-Cola to remove it, and for those who are experiencing a yellowing tub, a first aid staple could be the answer.

If you feel as though your bathroom is never spotless, a cleaning hack might be the way to go during your next scrub session.
