Unless you are like Monica Geller, cleaning the house is probably the bane of your life. Unfortunately, it still needs to be done.
Thankfully, these tips will make it slightly easier:
So cleaning the bathroom is certainly not on our list of fun things to do either, but it must be done. Soap scum can be a nightmare to get off, particularly when it is on the walls of the shower. Simply grab a plastic scraper, you can get these in your local car shop, and just gently scrape it off.

No matter how often you may clean the kitchen, grease will build up and it is a nightmare to get off. However, we have a trick up our sleeves!
