Get Your RV’s Bathroom Spic ‘n Span With These Hacks!


When you’re enjoying the great outdoors with your family and friends, the last thing you want to be doing is spending more time than necessary cleaning your RV’s bathroom. Get in and get out is how I try to approach it. Anytime I can clean with fewer supplies and shave minutes off my cleaning time, count me in! In my search for help in this area, I’ve come upon some ingenious cleaning hacks that have helped me get my RV bathroom spic ‘n span in no time—and I want to share them with our readers! Read on fellow RVing lover! 


Shine On!


Are you lucky enough to have beautiful chrome fixtures in your RV’s bathroom? If so, there are a few ways you can keep them looking fantastically shiny. Take your leftover lemon from your campfire walleye dinner last night and squeeze it on your faucet. Using a soft cloth or paper towel, rub on the lemon juice. Then wipe it off with a dry cloth or paper towel. Don’t have a lemon handy? Grab some baby oil or shaving cream and use it in the same way. Voila! No more spots or smudges. 


Let It Rain Down!


During your morning shower, the last thing you want is a showerhead that’s clogged and only spraying water out of half its holes. You’re not there to clean just half your body! So use this easy hack to unclog the showerhead: Fill a plastic bag with either distilled vinegar or a 1:1 mixture of warm water and vinegar. Secure it to the showerhead so that it is fully submerged in the liquid. Leave it for about an hour (go make s’mores or have a beverage by the campfire). Remove the baggie and flush the showerhead by running hot water through it. It should now be spraying at 100% capacity! 


Mirror, Mirror …


To clean or un-fog your bathroom mirror, just swipe a thin amount of shaving cream on it and wipe it off. Once again you’ll be able to check your teeth in private after eating corn on the cob. 


Curtain of Shame


Don’t live with a shower curtain that looks like it belongs in a dumpster! And don’t break your back trying to clean it by hand every week either. Simply remove it, put it in the washing machine with regular detergent, and set it on a normal cycle. Let it air dry after you hang it back up in the shower. If it comes out of the washing machine not quite as clean as you want it, repeat the process with a few added bath towels this time. The friction from the towels may help to remove any film that isn’t coming off easily. 


Vent … You’ll Feel Better


If your RV has a ceiling fan or vent, it’s easy to forget that it’s up there. How often do we look up when we’re busy doing our thing in the bathroom, right? Well during the time that fans and vents are largely ignored, they collect lots of dirt and dust from campgrounds. A quick and easy way to clean them is by simply blowing them clean with a can of air. Brilliant, right! Yes, the same can of compressed air that you use to blow crumbs off your keyboard can also be used to clean your fan or vent screen (and keep you from breathing in the pollutants). 


Swipe It


In a pinch, grab a ready-to-use cleaning wipe for a quick swipe of the vanity, toilet, or shower floor or walls. Use a separate one for each different area of the bathroom (read: don’t swipe the vanity with the wipe you just used on the toilet).
