5-Minute Hacks for a Cleaner Bathroom

Bathroom dirt and grime have a way of sneaking up on you. One day, those creases and crannies between tiles and around the sink look shiny and new. And the next, they’re suddenly brown and gunky. 

When you have a family, this gets so much worse! It’s not just the extra cleaning you have to worry about. It’s the very real health risks of a dirty bathroom. Bathrooms are home to harmful bacteria and viruses like e.Coli and COVID-19. The less you wash, the more likely you or a loved one are to catch something. 

Luckily, you don’t have to scrub between those tiles every day to keep your bathroom sparkling. We have some 5-minute cleaning tips here to help keep your bathroom clean without having to do the grunt work.

Let’s dive in!

Antimicrobial Towels

The best (and easiest) 5-minute bathroom fix is to replace your current towels with antibacterial towels.
What’s the big deal with towels? Aren’t your current ones just fine?

Your towels might look nice, but it’s what you can’t see that makes all the difference. Towels are the favorite home of bacteria, viruses, mold, fungus, and allergens. In fact, a study revealed that towels are the dirtiest objects in your entire home

Towels get even more sinister when you consider just where you put them on your body. They spread harmful germs to your mouth and eyes. They infect your face and pores with acne and inflammation-causing bacteria. They send allergens and mites into your lungs and sinuses. 

Getting antimicrobial towels will end ALL of the above issues and more. 

We love Soji Towels because they’re all-natural and ultra-comfortable. Soji are woven with anti-microbial silver in every thread, so they’re 99.99% effective at killing germs. They’re stitched from bamboo using a special Japanese technique to give them a silky soft and super fluffy feel. They’re so comfortable that we actually look forward to leaving the shower!

Soji aren’t scratchy or flimsy like other antimicrobial towels. They feel like big snuggly blankets.

Some additional benefits of Soji include:

  • No more towel odors: Soji won’t let bacteria and mold (the causes of towel odors) grow, so you can enjoy that new-towel smell every day. 
  • Antimicrobial for life: Antimicrobial silver is woven into every fiber of Soji. Its germ-killing powers will never fade away or wash out. 
  • Durable stitching: Japanese stitching techniques prevent wear and tear such as fraying, pilling, and tearing.
  • Machine washable: When it comes time for a wash, just run Soji through the washer and dryer with the rest of your washing.
  • COVID-proof: COVID-19 can survive on your towels for 7 days. Soji eliminates COVID-19 and other viruses on contact.

Don’t wait to make your bathroom cleaner and your family safer with antimicrobial towels. They are the easiest way to upgrade your bathroom without lifting a finger. And now, you can get Soji for 50% off during a presale event. Grab yours for the cost of a normal set of towels for a limited time!   

Separate your toothbrushes

Next to your towels, your toothbrushes are the scariest things in your bathroom. Not only are they exposed to all the gross floaties and germs from your toilet, shower, and sink, but they get an extra dose of germs from your mouth.

Toothbrushes take an average of 10 hours to completely dry, so they remain wet, and in a dark room, all day long. This allows germs to grow like crazy. And then what do you do? You put that baby right back in your mouth after a 1-second rinse! 

Powerwashing your toothbrush every day isn’t an option, but you can reduce germs a lot by simply keeping your toothbrush out of germs’ way. Designate a toothbrush spot out of the bathroom—maybe in the corridor or on your dresser. And, try to keep your toothbrushes near a window so they can dry in the sunlight. This will prevent germ growth, and the sun’s UV rays can even kill germs. 

Lemon and vinegar spray

Ask any granny how to clean ANYTHING and she’ll tell you two words: lemon and vinegar. These natural acidic ingredients eat away stains, oil, grease, dirt, and more with very little work. And, they contain zero harmful chemicals, making them ideal for families with young children. 

Keep a spray bottle of vinegar and lemon juice in the bathroom. Every day or two, give those cracks and corners a spray before your shower. After your shower, wipe it away. It takes a combined 30 seconds of effort.

Vinegar and lemon do their job without you. All you have to do is wait a few minutes for the job to be done before wiping the solution away. This mix literally does the work for you while you shower. 

You’ll never have to scrub that grout again. 

Put that lid down

Earlier in this article, we mentioned the “plume” that comes from your toilet every time you flush. This is probably the #1 cause of harmful germs spreading in your bathroom. AND, it’s one of the easiest ways to spread COVID-19. 


Due to the physics of your toilet flushing (something to do with whirlpools and pressure), an invisible plume of vapor shoots out of your toilet at the conclusion of every flush. Essentially, this dusts everything in your bathroom with… your business… every time you flush. 

That is, unless you put the lid down. One study found that you can reduce the germs in your bathroom by 50% simply by putting the lid down. That means you can do 50% of the job of cleaning your bathroom in about 1 second. 

Make this a habit in your family to prevent unnecessary illness and icky germs in general!
