3. Perch your soap on pebbles so that the soapy water has a place to drain, instead of leaving it to dry into a goopy mess.


5. Scrub your grout with a Magic Eraser to make your space look less grimy.,

Both bleach and vinegar will damage your grout, so an alkaline cleaner (like Mr. Clean products) is a better solution. There is literally a Tile Council of North America that says this. They don't mess around. Read more here.

Get an eight-pack of Magic Erasers from Amazon for $8.52. See it in action here.

7. Organize the hidden storage space with roll-out drawers so it doesn't ruin the ~relaxed vibe~ every time you open it.

This one is from Wayfair for $74.99, but if that's not in your price range, here's one from Amazon for $24.87.


10. Bring in a bit of life with a few plants that thrive in low-light, humid environments.

17. String together a fancy teak bath mat to replace the cloth one that is currently sitting in its own damp filth.
