    20 Things That'll Help Keep Your Bathroom Clean For Longer Than A Day

    Day 2: Still clean, Day 3: Still clean, Day 4: You get the point.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A disposable toilet cleaning kit designed to clean the crap outta your toilet bowl. Literally. For this price, you'll feel like you're sitting on an actual porcelain throne.

    Are you grossed out by the fact that your old toilet brush is sitting in literal filth? Then this scrubber kit is for you. It includes a wand, storage caddy, and six refill sponges, the latter of which you could THROW OUT after just one use.

    Promising review: "Nothing could be easier than this. Just swish and toss! The soft squishy sponge gets under the rim easily, unlike a stiff brush. The best part, of course, is that you dispose of the sponge after just one use. No more keeping that dirty brush under the bathroom sink! This system is a keeper and I bought one for every bathroom in my house." β€”Carol Lynn

    Get this kit from Amazon for $8.88.

    2. A power scrubber, because feeling like your bathroom is truly clean is all in the finer details. The bristles rotate 60 times per second, meaning dirty grout doesn't stand a chance.

    Promising review: "It's the perfect instrument for cleaning grout between tiles in our shower. I bought the 'pointy' head attachment that has a very stiff rubber-pronged brush. If you brush lightly, you will remove even the toughest stains or mold because you are removing some of the grout."β€”Gary

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    3. A Mr. Clean Magic Eraser made specifically for your bath so it'll magically erase the weird dark stains that have been silently expanding on your tub for months β€” no thanks!

    These melamine eraser sponges are super tough on stains, but won't damage the surface underneath said stain. The sponge is made with Febreeze to erase soap scum and leave behind a fresh scent. Aaand it's 30% larger than the original Magic Eraser to more easily scrub a whole lot of tile.

    Promising review: "I never thought I'd be able to get the weird pink soap stains out of my tub. Picture someone scrubbing with cleaning products until their arms were sore, to no avail. But this worked with no effort! It's unbelievable. Please never let this go off the market!" β€”Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $9.39 (four pack).

    4. A concentrated gel made with a formula that'll cling to silicone sealants (the thin area around your shower head, in between your tiles, etc.) and kill mold and mildew as well as prevent it from popping up again.

    Promising review: "This product deserves more than five stars. It is magic! I've tried everything for the mold in my tub tiles and grout, and nothing has worked β€” but not only did this remove the mold, but it left the grout looking really shiny. I couldn't be happier!" β€”Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    5. A pack of four shower curtain adhesive clips that'll act as a splash guard so you don't have to mop up the bathroom floor every time you wash your hair. It'll also prevent your bathmat and the area around your shower from getting moldy and mildewy by keeping the water where it belongs, in the shower!


    Promising review: "I purchased a couple gadgets here on Amazon that claim to minimize or eliminate shower water seepage and have easy installs. These clips are the best gadget I purchased, and I plan to buy more to hold down the base of my shower curtain. I have them on both the outside and inside of the shower. They are installed on the left side of the shower, the side that we do not use to enter the shower. That way they just stay in place." β€”Kimber

    Get it from Amazon for $7.69 (available in a pack of four and eight).

    6. A TubShroom, because it'll do all the work for you and catch nasty hair so your weekend doesn't go ~down the drain~.

    Btw, this thing has 8,034 five-star reviews by seriously ecstatic people β€” that's a lot of clean drains (and hair, ew). Also, check out our full review!

    Promising review: "I can't say enough good things about this product. I have a family of four, and would frequently have to snake our shower drain. It appears I won't be having that problem ever again. I even give my dog baths, and this collects the hair. You don't know how much hair you wash down your drain until you use this!" β€”aaron

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in six colors).

    7. A pumice cleaning stone that'll kick hard water, calcium and lime stains' butts and restore shine to your porcelain throne faster than you can flush.

    Fret not, its material is specially made to avoid scratching. Plus the heavy-duty plastic handle protects your hands while you clean because...yuck.

    Promising review: "I'm so embarrassed to show how disgusting my toilets have been, but it's worth it for me to help anyone who has suffered as I have. We built our house and have lived in it 33 years. We dug a well and the water was beautiful, until air hit it. The copper, iron, and lime are all so high the chart doesn't even go that high. We have spent thousands on a huge filter that filters all the water coming into the house from the well. My toilets have been disgusting to me, though clean (as clean as I can get them). This pumice stone β€” HOLY MOLY β€” my toilets are clean!!!!! I am totally amazed. It took about 30 minutes on each one. The stains are gone. THEY ARE GONE!!!!!!" β€”nance

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    8. A mold and mildew remover for tackling hard-to-reach crevices without scrubbing until your hands fall off. Just spritz and continue your life.

    Promising review: "I am almost in tears writing this review right now. For almost two years I've been dealing with mold and mildew in my bathroom. It's covering the walls, the caulk in the bathtub, and the baseboards. I've spent so much money on bleach sprays and mold killers that didn't work. I almost gave up and moved out. I bought this as a last resort and I can't believe how well it's working!!! My tub is nearly spotless and the walls are coming clean as well. I am so grateful to this brand and product." β€”Jessica

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $11.25.

    9. A FlexiSnake drain cleaner that'll remove clogged hair quickly and painlessly β€” no more pausing to gag about how gross this is.

    It has *4000* hooks and loops and can extend 18 inches. Plus, there's no need to disassemble the stopper, because this is skinny enough to fit in any drain. Check out our full post about the FlexiSnake!

    Promising review: "The plunger would solve the problem for one or two days max, then it would be back to standing water. Nothing was fixing our bathroom drain issues in the sink AND the tub. The tub was getting so bad that it was dangerous to stand in the shower, because the gross scum buildup made the tub so slippery. Then I ordered this. I was convinced we were going to have to hire a plumber to rip out the whole bathroom to find the problem. We dealt with these horrible drain issues for months. I could not believe β€” it didn't get stuck and all the disgusting gross crap that came out of the sink drain!" β€”expatinaasia

    Get it from Amazon for $4.86.

    10. An all purpose power scrubber drill attachment kit made with nylon bristles so you won't scratch up your tub, sinks, or anything else you're cleaning. It comes with three different sizes and shapes of brushes for cleaning any surface in your house you can think of!

    Important to point out that the drill itself is not included. These are just the attachments, but like omg they make a regular old drill so much more exciting.

    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim because my walk in shower is just a pain to clean. I'm 51 and I guess I've just been old school with how I clean, hand scrubbing for years. The FIRST time I used this to clean my shower it took five minutes AND it scrubbed my shower more clean than it has been in years. In the corners, the floor, the glass door...everything came out squeaky clean. I'm NEVER cleaning my shower by hand again." β€”Terry

    Get it from Amazon for $14.95 (available in six colors).

    11. A jetted tub cleaner you can run through your system as part of your regular routine so you can finally enjoy that bubble bath you've been craving.

    Promising review: "Love this stuff. I was skeptical at first. I am a huge germaphobe and this worked well enough for me to actually take a bath at my new place with the jets on!" β€”Ann

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    12. An over-the-drain hair stopper for anyone with clogged drains from lots of loose hair getting stuck in them. Simply place this on top and get to showering! /

    Promising review: "I've been very impressed! It's tall enough to fit easily over my pop-up drain and (even without suction cups) the weighted top keeps it in place. I have medium-length hair and seem to shed almost as much as my cat, but the drain protector catches it all and is easily removed and tossed away. Best of all, the silicone doesn't hold onto mildew or mold. I have been able to spray and wipe away any grime with very little effort. It looks like this drain protector will last a very long time. This has been a very worthy purchase!"β€”Suneimi

    Get it from Amazon for $8.99 (available in a pack of two).

    13. A grout pen to transform your bathroom tile so it looks basically brand new in, like, an hour or two, depending on how much tile you have.

    While it doesn't exactly ~clean~ your grout (for that, I recommend a power scrubber, $15.99 on Amazon), sometimes the lazyish route's the best route.

    Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised by how far these went. I did the entire floor of my large master bathroom plus a little of the shower with one pen. It is pretty forgiving and you have quite a bit of working time before it dries completely. This was not a quick task, but it went faster than I thought it would. I was worried the white would look too bright, but it just makes everything look so much cleaner. Very happy with this product!" β€”jenelle

    Get it on Amazon for $8.99 (four colors).

    14. A bottle of pre-mixed Barkeeper's Friend cleanser for when you're facing down stains that regular soap, water, and scrubbing won't touch.

    It fights well against rust stains, tarnish, mineral deposits, soap scum, and indoor or outdoor grime and works on stainless steel, brass, bronze, copper alloys, aluminum, ceramic, porcelain, glass, and Corian.

    Check out this BuzzFeeder's review for more on this product.

    Promising review: "I was so bummed when I scratched up my pretty white sink with pots and pans. I thought I'd need to have it replaced or try to sand it and refinish it somehow, but I bought this stuff as a last ditch effort to fix it myself. It takes some elbow grease to make them go away, the scratches don't just wipe off, but if you scrub at them for a few minutes they melt away pretty quickly. After two rounds my sink looks nearly brand new again!" β€”Dan Borden

    Get it from Amazon for $9.49 (available in three sizes).

    15. A bottle of stain remover that'll dissolve even the worst rust stains right before your very eyes, no scrubbing required.

    Promising review: "We have a VERY high iron concentration in our well water at home and it ends up slowly turning our shower, sink and toilet a deep orange color over time. Have tried a ton of products to try to fix this issue but nothing works nearly as well as this product. Smells absolutely terrible but works AMAZING. A few spritzes of this and you can watch the orange dissolve away before your eyes. I use this formula for the sink and inside of the shower and use the powder formula for inside the toilet as that seems to work better there." β€”Samantha

    Get a bottle on Amazon for $5.

    16. A thin-shaped stiff-bristled scrubber for those in-between grout spots that build up with grime if not tended to regularly.

    Promising review: "This is just what you need to clean your grout lines in the quickest way possible! I don't know what we were thinking when we decided to put subway tile in our shower, but we did, and cleaning the grout lines can be a very time-consuming job. But this brush really did a great job and sped up the process!" β€”Amanda E. King

    Get it from Amazon for $12.95.

    17. A vinegar-based glass and window cleaner that'll deliver gorgeous, streak-free shine. Plus, this formula doesn't contain any harsh chemicals so there's no excuse not to clean your mirror of toothpaste stains and your shower door from water stains.


    ...meaning you won't have to breathe said chemicals in every time you need to clean your window. Goodbye, cleaning product-induced sneezing attacks and headaches!

    Promising review: "I am amazed! I honestly didn't think a 'natural' glass cleaner would work this well, but I was terrified by the chemicals found in my other glass cleaner, so I decided to give it a go. This product cleaned my mirrors and windows with zero streaks. It has a very light, pleasant aroma, and even after wiping down all the glass in my kitchen and bathrooms, I didn't have a sneezing fit like I often do after spraying cleaners. Will definitely purchase again!" β€”Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    18. A pair of double-sided scrub brushes designed to defeat basically any kind of grime you throw at them but are especially effective on grout, due to their shape that can fit in small surfaces.


    Promising review: "I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these brushes! I was moving out of my old house and had to get it cleaned to Military Specs as it was base housing, and I needed something to really help me get it cleaned." β€”Katelynn C.

    Get them on Amazon for $5.99.

    19. An extendable scrubber for those hard-to-reach corners of your bathroom that collect water stains and loose hairs because you're too short to reach them when you clean.


    This handy-dandy tool lets you clean your entire bathroom WITHOUT forcing you to contort your body like an acrobat.

    Promising review: "How have I lived without this all my life? It makes cleaning shower walls ten times easier. Plus, the adjustable handle let you apply the right amount of pressure each time." β€”SM_chi

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    20. A squeegee to wipe down your tile or glass shower every day to reduce the chance that mold will grow. Get in the habit of drying off your shower just like you dry off yourself!

    The head is designed with three dual-edge blades for a streak-free and squeak-free clean. The set includes one squeegee and two silicone replacement blades. There's also a hook hole built into the handle so you can easily hang it up anywhere you'd like!

    Promising review: "You'd think all squeegees are pretty much the same, but not true! In the field of squeegees this one is a standout. First of all, the blade is a thin strip of silicone, not rubber or plastic. That not only cuts a clean sharp swath across glass or other smooth surfaces, it also does an amazing job of gathering pet hair and lint from upholstered furniture, carpets and throw rugs. I have three small long haired dogs and nothing would remove the fur they left behind; not even the famed Dyson Animal, but this squeegee cleans it right up! It's a minor miracle! Add to that the fact that you get, not one, but three easily replaceable blades and you are practically set for life. And all that for a really reasonable price. You just can't beat it! If you need a squeegee, this is the one!" β€”Karla

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97.

    Take a bubble bath, you've earned it!
