You have to shower, right? Amazing, you can make it easy with these smart life hacks. They’ll help you keep your bathroom sparkle and improve your shower experience.
1. Use an over-the-door shoe organizer in the shower
If you start having a crazy number of products line your tub, give this a try. Make sure to pick a mesh organizer that allows water to drain from the pockets.
2. Hang products from a curtain rod
Not only is this another amazing idea for keeping things organized in the shower, but it also puts the products right at your fingertips. Bending over? Please!
3. Prevent rust with nail polish
Do you know that nasty ring your aluminum shaving cream can leave on your tub? Here’s a solution: Paint the bottom of the can with a clear nail polish to prevent the can from leaving rusty residue.
4. Clean your shower with grapefruit
That’s right! Cut a grapefruit in half and use it to clean your showerhead and knob. The acid from the fruit gets the job done, plus it leaves a citrusy smell.
5. Keep products on a lanyard when traveling
This is the perfect solution for keeping your mini travel bottles organized and accessible.
6. Dry hair with a T-shirt
Wet strands are actually more susceptible to breaking than dry hair. Using a cotton T-shirt to dry hair instead of a towel is brilliant because a T-shirt is much gentler.
7. Soak your showerhead in vinegar
When it’s time to give your shower a deep clean, fill a plastic bag with vinegar and tie it around your showerhead, leaving it there overnight. You’ll wake up to find your showerhead squeaky clean.
8. DIY a shower cap
This may not be a long-term solution for keeping hair dry in the shower, but when you’re in a pinch, this totally works. Simply tie a plastic shopping bag around your head and secure it with two knots.
9. Decorate with ribbons instead of curtain hooks
Instantly add an adorable twist to your bathroom decor without spending a ton of money by using ribbons to hang your shower curtain.
10. Remove clothing wrinkles while showering
This hack is an oldie but a goody, especially when you’re short on time in the morning. Hang wrinkled clothing in the bathroom while you shower to let the steam work its magic on the wrinkles.
11. Use a smartphone in your bathroom
If you have a waterproof phone case, stick your phone in a dry cup or dry sink to play music while you shower. Voilà! The acoustics of the sink will amplify the sound like speakers.
You can also put your phone or tablet in a Ziploc bag and hang it up.
12. DIY bathtub tray
And if you feel like taking a relaxing bath instead of a shower, you just haven’t lived till you have a drink, a good book (and maybe even some chocolates) on a DIY bathtub tray.
Use an old wall shelf as a bathtub caddy shelf. Amp up your bathroom style with this amazing, inexpensive way to unwind at the end of the day.
