We had several, “Why didn’t we think of that!?” moments while watching this genius video by YouTuber Alisha Marie, in which she details 10 must-know life hacks for the shower. You have to shower, right? Might as well make it easy.
1. Use an over-the-door shoe organizer in the shower.
If you start having a crazy number of products line your tub, give this a try. Make sure to pick a mesh organizer that allows water to drain from the pockets.
2. Hang products from a curtain rod.
Not only is this another amazing idea for keeping things organized in the shower, it also puts the products right at your fingertips. Bending over? Please!
3. Prevent rust with nail polish.
You know that nasty ring your aluminum shaving cream can leaves on your tub? Here’s a solution: Paint the bottom of the can with a clear nail polish to prevent the can from leaving rusty residue.
4. Clean your shower with grapefruit.
That’s right! Cut a grapefruit in half and use it to clean your showerhead and knob. The acid from the fruit gets the job done, plus it leaves a citrusy smell.
5. Keep products on a lanyard when traveling.
This is the perfect solution for keeping your mini travel bottles organized and accessible.
6. Dry hair with a T-shirt.
Wet strands are actually more susceptible to breaking than dry hair. Using a cotton T-shirt to dry hair instead of a towel is brilliant, because a T-shirt is much gentler.
7. Soak your showerhead in vinegar.
When it’s time to give your shower a deep clean, fill a plastic bag with vinegar and tie it around your showerhead, leaving it there overnight. You’ll wake up to find your showerhead squeaky clean.
8. DIY a shower cap.
This may not be a long-term solution for keeping hair dry in the shower, but when you’re in a pinch, this totally works. Simply tie a plastic shopping bag around your head and secure it with two knots.
9. Decorate with ribbons instead of curtain hooks.
10. Remove clothing wrinkles while showering.
This hack is an oldie but a goody, especially when you’re short on time in the morning. Hang wrinkled clothing in the bathroom while you shower to let the steam work its magic on the wrinkles.
