Do you long for one of those pristine, clutter-free bathrooms that seems to exist only on TV? While we can't buy you one of those, we CAN share some fantastic tips to help give yours a face-lift!
Out of sight, out of mind
An over-the-door organizer is a simple, inexpensive way to straighten that bathroom clutter. And the best part? Your collection of brushes, lotions, and hair products hide nicely behind the door!
Classy, controlled chaos
For a chic, recycled, and fashionable organizer, tap into your creative side, and create something simply stunning!
Say "see ya" to stains!
Tired of scrubbing those unattractive, cemented-on water stains in your shower? Well scrub no more! Coating your shower doors with an auto glass treatment causes the water to run off more easily, leaving less stains behind! Reapply every few weeks to keep the shine!
The "scent"er of attention
Your friends will surely be asking about the lovely homemade air freshener you have displayed in your guest bathroom! In order to make this one-of-a-kind scent jar, simply fill a small mason jar with 1/2 cup baking soda and 8-12 drops of your favorite essential oil. Insert a fabulous piece of scrapbook paper into the lid, and poke with holes. For the full instructions visit the Mom 4 Real blog.
The miracle worker
A warm, soothing shower at the end of a long, hard workday can be simply delightful. However, the grime and build-up caked onto your shower head can surely take away from your sensational shower experience! To conquer that crusty mess, simply fill a baggy with vinegar, tie it around your shower head, and leave it soak overnight. Problem solved!
While we're talking vinegar...did you know that it can also help unclog a drain? Start by pouring a pot of boiling water directly down the drain. Next, stuff 1/2 cup baking soda into the opening, and let it sit for a few moments. Combine 1 cup of vinegar with 1 cup boiling water, and pour over the baking soda. Close the drain, and allow the chemical reaction to work its magic inside. Wait approximately 10 minutes, and follow with one more pot of boiling water. Repeat steps if necessary.
Manage the munchkin madness
Rather than have your children's toys scattered ever so NOT nicely around the bathtub area...add some cute, colorful bins to tidy the tub! Get organized, and clean up that kiddie clutter!

The power of paste
Searching for an effective, low-cost way to clean your grout? Look no further than your bathroom cabinet! For a fabulous cleaning, begin by sweeping away excess dirt from the area. Next, scrub a bit of toothpaste directly onto the grout using an old toothbrush. Allow to sit approximately 30-40 minutes, then wipe away the paste with a damp towel. Sparkling smile...sparkling tile!
Goodbye to grime
Another quick and easy way to brighten the space between your bathroom tiles is by using a grout bleach pen. Follow the simple directions located on the side of the package, and step back in amazement!
