“I love cleaning the bathroom,” said no one ever. And while it may never be fun, one TikToker reveals how to certainly make it easier.
“It’s so easy and works every time,” she says in a recent video.

The TikToker shows her bathtub’s transformation from cringe-worthy to sparkling with step-by-step instructions.
All you have to do is sprinkle baking soda around the drain, spritz with hydrogen peroxide, let sit for 15-20 seconds, and then wipe it up. Say goodbye to soap scum forever.
“This is one of my fave eco-friendly cleaners for tubs & sinks!” Gabrielle exclaimed in her post.
How it’s helping
Since most households already have the ingredients, this is a huge money saver considering studies have indicated that the average American family spends $40-$50 a month on household cleaning supplies.
Using natural cleaning products is also good for your health. Hydrogen peroxide is an organic compound that biodegrades completely into oxygen and water, unlike bleach which can cause skin and respiratory irritation among other harmful effects.
This simple hack reduces the use of toxic chemicals in the household that are typically found in popular store-bought cleaning products — which, ironically, are more expensive. When these harsh chemicals are used, they wash down drains and find their way into our water systems which is terrible for the environment.
There isn’t a single negative to using natural products to keep your home clean. It’s easy and gratifying.
What everyone’s saying
TikTokers were grateful for the hack.
“Seriously the best thing ever, thank you!!! And so natural,” a TikToker commented.
Another backed up the tip, saying, “I’ve been doing this for 30 years…Haven’t used a store cleaning product my entire life
“Just tried this and my shower is SPARKLING. Thank you,” said another.
