Tuesday tip: Dish wand helps keep shower squeaky clean

FARGO – Cleaning the bathroom is by far my least favorite item on my weekly to-do list.

But a simple kitchen utensil has made the job a bit easier and my tub a lot cleaner.

Buy a dish wand with a sponge on one end and a handle designed for filling with dish soap.

Fill the wand with either a one-to-one mixture of dish soap and vinegar or a non-toxic bathroom cleaner. I’ve found the cleanser designed for tubs cleans better, but some might find it a bit harsh to use it while showering.

Let the rest of your family know the wand will stay in the shower and is meant for them to use while they’re in there. (I know, this is a reach.)

I leave ours in the shower caddy, and give trouble spots a scrub almost every day. It’s become just part of my daily routine.
