1. Open the windows.

Fresh air goes a long way in a bathroom, so open the windows up!

2. Use vinegar on the shower head.

Tie a bag of white vinegar over your shower head and leave over night. In the morning it will be limescale free and shining like a star!

3. Wash those mats!

Bath mats can get smelly very quickly, so wash or deodorize them weekly!

4. Wax up your vents.

To prevent air vents from getting grimy, rub beeswax on them and see how quick they are to wipe!

5. Save time by mopping walls.

Why scrub the walls with a small sponge, when you can simply mop them! Such a time-saver!

6. Don't forget the toilet rim!

So many people forget to really get under the toilet rim when cleaning, but it makes a massive difference! Rubber gloves on!

7. Get your toilet pearly white.

Drop a couple of denture cleaning tablets in your toilet bowl and leave overnight for a limescale and stain-free bowl the next morning!

8. Use self-cleaning sprays.

When you finish showering, give your screen a quick spritz of glass cleaner. It will clean itself from there and leave you with a gorgeous streak-free finish!

9. Vinegar-wrap taps.

Soak tissues in white vinegar then pack them around any limescale that you notice in your taps. Leave overnight for the best results and then rinse!

10. Audit your storage!

Make sure you regularly throw out old medicines, out of date toiletries and grubby make-up, as all of these things will make your bathroom a bit more stale!

11. Clean your light lenses.

To make your room brighter, take the time to clean your light lenses or bulbs. It'll only take a minute and will make a big difference!

12. Tie your shower curtain.

After a shower, tie your curtain up to prevent the bottom staying in water. This is the leading cause of mouldy curtains!

13. Don't forget to clean your handles.

If you have any storage with handles in your bathroom, give them a quick wipe while you are doing the sink, to prevent sticky fingerprints ruining all your hard work!

14. An old toothbrush will come in handy!

A dab of bleach gel on an old toothbrush is the perfect remedy to dirty or moldy grout! Give it a scrub and be shocked at the difference!

15. Swap out your dull bulbs.

Have you really thought about your bathroom lighting? You need bright, sparkling light in there so why not invest in some more powerful bulbs, but in LED format, so you can save some money!

16. Invest in scented candles.

Candles that give off a beautiful aroma are a must for every bathroom. We don't think we need to tell you why!

17. Tackle glass smears.

In an otherwise very clean bathroom, streaky glass will look awful, especially on your mirrors, so use a proper glass cleaner and even a squeegee, to get the perfect finish.

18. Wash your toiletries.

Shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles all get clogged up and sticky, so next time you have a shower, give them all a rinse before you put them back on the shelf.

19. Tackle the floor last.
