Avoid that sinking feeling with budget products that shine in the bathroom

SCRUBBING the bathroom is a chore many of us dread, especially forking out for the cleaning products.

But specialists from bathroom supplier Drench.co.uk have shared their top cleaning tips with me — and they revealed you can use budget-friendly white vinegar and baking soda to make your shower, sink and toilet gleam again. To make things even more simple, I recommend the easy-to-use 750ml bottle of Wilko Original white vinegar spray, costing £1.50.

Shower shine: According to the experts, “how to clean the shower head” gets Googled an average of 2,900 times every month.

Drench.co.uk says: “Pour some white vinegar into a plastic bag, pop your shower head in there and then secure it with a hair tie. Leave the bag overnight and the shower head is ready to use again.”

Toilet tricks: Another popular search is “How to clean the toilet”, with 2,000 hits every month.

Drench.co.uk specialists say: “Pour a cup of white vinegar in the bowl and let it sit overnight. The next morning, sprinkle with baking soda, give it a scrub then flush.”

Curtain call: Shower curtains can be an absolute pain to get sparkling.

Drench.co.uk says: “Put your curtain into the washing machine. Add in your normal detergent, but also 125g of baking soda. Wash in hot water at the highest level. At the rinse cycle, add 125g of distilled white vinegar. If it is a fabric curtain, let it run through the spin cycle.

“But if it is plastic, remove it beforehand and leave to hang in the bathroom.”

Grout grime: When it comes to grouting, specialists at Drench.co.uk say: “Spray non-distilled white vinegar straight on to the dirty grout and leave for 15 minutes. Next, use an old toothbrush to scrub the dirt away.”
