Bathrooms are sacred. They're where we go to have some peace and quiet and to clean ourselves. We start our days in the bathroom and end our days in the bathroom, so it's important that they feel clean and inviting.

The best way to maintain your bathroom is to quickly wipe down surface areas and the sink a couple times a week and then go for a deeper cleanse of the shower, toilet, and sink once a week.

As you can imagine, our bathrooms can be homes to the nastiest germs. Their warm and damp environment makes a perfect breeding ground for bacteria and viruses. Your bathroom is supposed to be a place where you can get clean, not sick.

You can definitely clean your bathroom with products from the store, but they're not the greatest for our health. Inhaling these harsh chemicals can cause respiratory and skin problems. Long-term exposure can actually increase your risk of developing really serious health problems.

The American Thoracic Society published a study that reveals a strong correlation between harsh cleaning products and lung deterioration. The worst part of this study found that people who were regularly exposed to cleaning products had the same lungs as someone who smoked 20 cigarettes a day. While these products are killing any germs they come in contact with, they're also slowly killing you.

This is not a fact that should be taken lightly. The good news is that there is a tried and true cleaning solution you can easily make at home to clean stubborn stains and scum from your shower.

You only need 3 things to make your all-star cleaning product:

  • A spray bottle
  • 1.5 cups of white vinegar
  • 1.5 cups of dish soap (preferably blue Dawn)

Here's how you make it:

1. Heat the vinegar in your microwave, then pour it into the bottle.
2. Combine your soap, close the lid, and give the bottle a good shake.
3. Spray the mixture generously on any bathroom surface and let it soak for 30 minutes.
4. Wipe the surface clean for a sparkling, clean finish or use it to scrub stubborn stains.

Since vinegar can be an off-putting smell, you might want to get some good air ventilation in your house.
