    Thanks for this comprehensive list. You had a few items I didn’t know about!

  3. We have one of those old tub/shower combo units from the 70’s in our bathroom. And, it has sliding glass doors. Add to those two features my vertical challenged-ness and cleaning the tub/shower has been my nemesis for years. I have been using the homemade shower cleaner with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser for quite some time, but the physical gymnastics of the scrubbing part was killing me. And, then, one day, I had a light bulb moment. I had a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser Sponge Mop! That mop has officially been assigned to my bathroom and I can now literally stand outside the bathtub and scrub the whole unit from top to bottom.

  4. What do you use to clean your uneven slate floors? I have the same problem.

    1. Hi Becky! As far as tools, I use a good old vacuum cleaner, broom, and a mop. Anything else gets caught everywhere. And no special cleaners, just hot water with a little disinfectant. No matter how long I’ve had the slate, it always makes the water brown—I guess because it’s a natural stone. Do you notice that too?

  5. Thank you so very much
    Great ideals, I too clean like crazy,, I can’t help it. I like a clean house

    You must try Supercloths, Kate! They do the best job ever on glass and mirrors and really any hard surface including wood. It saves on paper towels in a major way. A two-pack on Amazon runs $23.75. I keep one in the kitchen and one in every bath. Everyone I have recommended them to raves about them. No cleaning products needed. Wet with hot water, wring well and go!

    Kind regards,

    Thanks for all these wonderful tips. They are very helpful. Any tips, though, on removing hard water stains from the toilet? I feel like I’ve tried everything and nothing seems to work. Thanks!

    1. I’ve never unbelievably had a big problem with this so I don’t have any personal experience. But I have seen a couple of ways that are most recommended. Have you tried the vinegar and baking soda method? This is a good tutorial on The Spruce website: https://www.thespruce.com/hard-water-stains-in-the-toilet-2719033. I’ve also seen these pumice hard water wands recommended for that purpose: https://rstyle.me/+x6guONt5Gzgbj0c-pDqXTg.
