There is only one immutable law in life—in a gentleman’s toilet, incoming traffic has the right of way. —Hugh Leonard We’ll begin with the most toxic zone in the house: the bathroom. The bathroom is a breeding ground for so many different types of germs and bacteria that it might as well be someone’s science project.
Try as you might, you can’t ignore it. As if that weren’t bad enough, the bathroom also seems to be a clutter magnet.

All of which should lead and inspire you to learn just enough cleaning, organizing, and home repair know-how to deal with this yuckiest of home zones without losing your mind or ruining your manicure.
Okay, now it’s time to spread the glove; that is, put on those rubber gloves and start dealing with that yucky stuff—mold, mildew, and soap scum—that just loves taking up residence in your bathroom with a smile and some pizzazz. We’ll start with just enough defensive and offensive cleaning tips.
