10 repurposing ideas in the bathroom- Repurposing 101 series

  1. Use a sliced lemon to shine chrome bathroom fixtures.
  2. Use lemon juice to dissolve stains that have seeped into tile grout.
  3. Use old baby food jars to hold Q-tips, cotton balls, tweezers, brushes, and so on.
  4. Take that old ice bucket that you don’t use anymore and use it as a small countertop trash basket in the bathroom – perfect for discarding small items.
  5. If you have old, wooden crates somewhere in your basement, bring it to the bathroom. Stack them on the floor, on their sides, to store clean towels, toilet paper, and other necessary toiletry items for a visitor in the guest bathroom.
  6. Pick up an old card catalog from a thrift store or garage sale and store all your bathroom gear inside – everything from hair curlers, curling irons, makeup brushes, toothbrushes, rolled towels, makeup, and other toiletry items. Label the front of each drawer to make it easy to find what you are looking for.
  7. If you aren’t using that wine rack in the kitchen, bring it to the bathroom and use it as a towel rack. Each compartment will comfortably hold at least one rolled towel.
  8. Use a pumice stone in your toilet to remove stubborn hard water and lime deposit stains that aren’t responding to traditional chemical-based cleaners.
  9. Install a faucet tap directly into the wall for an interesting alternative on a towel holder. An old-fashioned spoke-style faucet knob seems to work best for this purpose.
  10. When you’re done using that toothbrush on your teeth, use it on your floors in the bathroom. The bristles serve as a great grout scrubber.
