Tips for picking up hair in a (hairy) bathroom counter top.

We've all come across it, the bathroom that looks like a shedding sasquatch resides in the house. The bathroom that makes you wonder where it all comes from because no one is balding.

You try to get all the hair up but it just keeps appearing on your rag and then placing itself in a new spot on the counter like magic.

This is what I used to do, wear gloves, run your hand under the water and then rub it on the counter top. The hair will cling to your hand then run your hand under the faucet rinsing the hair easily down the drain. (yes to be the plumbers problem)

LOL! Finally a post that makes sense and is also a real issue. I have one occasional customers (as in about 6 months) who has me clean her two bathrooms. Trust me, she does NOT clean them at all. Hair and dust all over the place truly is kind of gross. But I happen to like her.

What works for me (and isn't expensive) are these foam sponges I buy at Dollar Tree. I don't know why but they get more hair and dust than regular sponges. They are sold to wash dishes but I get more use out of them cleaning. Its $1 for 6 of them. Of course, you could use a Swiffer duster to get this but that's way too expensive, IMO. I use one sponge for the bathrooms and one for kitchens.

Hair in the bathroom looks disgusting. Even more awful than on body. I’m against any body hair. There are a lot of talking about body-positive and accepting yourself the way the mother-nature has created you. But, for me, body hair looks disgusting, and I don’t understand women that grow body hair to prove some silly points. Thankfully, I’ve got rid of it with the laser epilator, which I found on Before that, I used to do waxing regularly. After laser epilation my body hair started to fall, and you could see it everywhere around the house, not only in bathroom. Thankfully, it didn’t last for too long.
