    Promising review: "This product works beautifully. I tried a lot of products to remove the hard water from my glass shower. I have to admit the first time I used it with a cloth it was not very effective. The second time I used a nonabrasive sponge for glass, it turned out beautiful just like the first day the glass was installed." —EJP

    2. A bottle of Schitt spray that'll ~clear the air~ when it's time to do the two. Just spray this rose-scented toilet spray into the bowl before you go and voilà, your bathroom will go from "ew, David!" to "yes, David!"

    3. The Bucko soap scum and grime remover spray, which'll make all the pesky gunk and grime in your bathroom disappear. From yellow-stained bathtubs to dull chrome fixtures, this no-bleach, no-acid, and no–harsh chemicals cleaner will keep everything looking new.

    4. A TubShroom for collecting the mass of hair that would normally clog your drain. When the water in your shower/tub starts to drain slower than usual, pop this product out, clean out the hair it's collected, and insert it back into the drain.

    5. Or if your tub or sink is already draining slowly, try a FlexiSnake Drain Millipede to remove the hair and other gross gunk. The snake latches onto trapped hair and debris and gets 'em out, stat. See ya, gobs of hair, old chunks of toothpaste, and other nasty things that are stuck your drain.

    6. A super-affordable, game-changing power scrubber if you need to deep clean your bathroom — especially grout! — in a major way.

    7. Or a grout pen that literally paints white paint onto grout that's stained beyond fixing. One pen covers up to 150 feet of grout.

    8. A hairbrush-cleaning tool to get all the dead hair out of your brush, because using your fingers to pull it out can get gross and messy really fast.

    9. A simple yet effective "Please put me down" toilet seat sticker if your bathroom has frequent visitors who, ahem, make a mess.

    12. A hard water stain remover you'll want to apply to shower doors and sink handles that look grimy. Water stains and mineral buildup will be history with this formula, which will leave your bathroom areas shiny and stain free.

    15. A set of drill brushes that are a literal miracle. The bristles are soft enough to handle delicate surfaces like glass and old tile, but strong enough to take on stubborn buildup on grout and in toilets.

    16. Or, if you don't already own a drill and don't care to, an electric spinning scrubber with a series of snap-on heads suitable for all bathroom surfaces.

    17. An aromatherapy eucalyptus shower/bath pouch to hang in your bathing area. The steam from your bath or shower will activate the eucalyptus oil and produce a wonderful smell that will have you feeling like you're at a spa.
