What’s worse than a horror film? Some of the spooky, scary things you can find in your bathroom! Granted, Halloween might only be a hop and a skip away — but that won’t stop these bathroom blunders from occurring all year long. Not sure where to check first? Here are some of the most common sights:
When cleaning a bathroom, what’s one of the most dreaded sights to see? Mold. Unfortunately, when a lavatory isn’t cleaned frequently or lacks ventilation, then this familiar “monster” will pop up in the most random of spots.
Of course, it’s quite simple to get rid of mold in your bathroom, and the simplest way to do that is to use bleach. Just remember: when using this cleaning staple to give yourself the proper ventilation and to wear old clothing, since this can destroy apparel within seconds.
Another spooky thing to discover in your lavatory is a clogged drain. Whether it be your trusty sink or your shower/bathtub, this is one of the most inconvenient sights to come across. Indeed, it’s simple for a drain to get clogged over time — but it’s even easier to unclog it!
First and foremost, you’ll want to stay away from chemical drain cleaners, since those will corrode your plumbing pipes over time. Next, pour 1 cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by 1 cup of vinegar. After letting the mixture sit for about 5 minutes, pour steaming hot water down the drain — and then you’ll be clog-free!
The most annoying of soundtracks in a home? A leaking shower head. You know the sound well; it can haunt any homeowner’s dreams. Sure, there are a variety of reasons why a shower head could start to leak, but it’s actually a straight-forward fix that will take less than ten minutes.
When analyzing your shower head, you’ll want to see where the leak is coming from. Ideally, most leaks are caused by the head itself — and can be fixed by just replacing it.
